Blue and black marlin, sailfish, dog-tooth tuna, giant trevally, jacks and even swordfish have been caught in Phuket and its surrounding waters, and the fishing community's firm catch-and-release policy helps ensure that future generations will have the opportunity to test themselves against these magnificent animals.

Koh Rok Island

Located about 80 km (50 miles) southeast of Phuket, this tiny island is named for a small furry creature that inhabits it. The island features some lovely beaches and is also home to monitor lizards. The real attraction for the sport fisherman, however are the multitudes of sailfish that can be found here.

During the late afternoon and early evening the action heats up and free jumpers can be seen in amazing amounts. Multiple hook-ups are the norm here and anyone who wants to bag a sailfish would do well to put this on their itenerary. A short cruise south lands you at Hin Daeng, which is a fantastic dive site that also provides some excellent fishing oppotunities.
