Sport Fishing, Mikindani

Take to the blue waters off Mikindani Bay and enjoy the fruits of the sea! The possibilities are many, sport fishing, swimming, snorkelling, diving, or simply the chance to cruise on the coastline.

The coastal waters in this part of Tanzania are rarely sport fished and the area has a good stock of Pelagics, the predatory fish that offer fishermen the challenge they seek. Kingfish, Wahoo and Barracuda are common and there are other seasonal visitors such as Marlin and Tuna.
