A true paradise, where one can wade and sight fish to an impressive variety of species such as Bonefish, various Trevally including the ferocious Giant Trevally, the finicky Permit, Triggerfish, Bumphead Parrotfish and Milkfish. Farquhar is certainly best known for the sheer diversity of species it offers anglers fortunate enough to visit her shores.
So if stalking Bonefish in skinny water, throwing crab flies at the colourful and charismatic tailing Triggerfish or holding your nerve as a large GT charges in at your fly interests you, well then Farquhar is certainly the venue for you.
Deep water too begins very close to shore and spending some time tussling with some of the monsters which prowl the deep blue, is certainly a very exciting and rewarding bonus. Here the most common species encountered are Giant Trevally, Barracuda, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Grouper, Bohar Snapper and Sailfish. All of which are guaranteed to show your backing the light of day!
During your stay you will have the use of 17.3 ft skiffs, each of which carries a single 90 HP 2-Stroke Yamaha engine. These boats have been specifically designed and fitted to fish both the flats and offshore waters of the Seychelles in comfort and safety, plus our guides drive each boat.
These boats have a draft of approximately 9 inches allowing us to access some extremely shallow areas of the atoll; however the main attraction still lies in wading the flats. Farquhar Atoll is the most southerly atoll in the Seychelles chain of islands lying just over 700km to the southwest of the main island Mahe.
