Depending where in Thailand, you’ll have a different chance of catching different types of fish. However, in Phuket, Thailand, most commonly caught fish are tuna, mackerel, sailfish, wahoo and marlin which can also be caught on the tour.
The main difference is the fishing spots and fishing tour duration. With Big Game 1, we fish along the way to Racha Yai island, located 20km from Phuket. With Big Game 2, we fish along the way to Racha Noi, located 40km from Phuket. Big Game 1 is 1 hour shorter than Big Game 2. Catching and fishing for more extraordinary fish is increased on Big Game 2 due to its fishing location.
