With all meals and lodging included, this package is guaranteed to be stress-free and fish-filled.

Escape to the exquisite simplicity of a tropical island paradise and experience the raw beauty of an untouched fish sanctuary in the far reaches of the Indian Ocean. The Alphonse group of atolls are considered as one of of the most pristine edens of the world making it a nature lover's paradise. Here you can leaving behind the impositions of everyday life, and enjoy miles of the world's healthiest climates, miles of unblemished shorelines, lagoons and sea flats. Here, anglers will be spoiled in the choice of environment and species for which they would like to fish. In addition to the abundant bonefish in the area (ranging in size from three to eight pounds) there are three species of trigger fish, five species of trevally and a plethora of other flats and offshore species.

About the Outfitter

Combined with the fabulous fishing, the accommodation at Alphonse is amongst the most comfortable fishing camps in the world. Guests stay in one of 15 privately spaced air conditioned bungalows, or four one-bedroom villas, offering every kind of comfort. Not only is it attractive for fishermen but also their partners who would like a week of relaxation. The bar area provides the ideal venue to relax in the evening breeze after a hard day on the flats and also houses the superb new restaurant serving fresh sea food of the highest quality. A standard package would include return flights (a short 45 minute journey) from Mahe to Alphonse by charter plane. The seasons runs from early October to late May. Guests will be guided by some of the most experienced saltwater guides, who are incredibly well-versed in catching even the toughest fish.

Lodging

The island features a single exclusive resort comprised of beach bungalows and villas built alongside the waters edge, each with spectacular ocean views. The central dining and bar area allows guests to socialize alongside the sparkling pool and shoreline. The cuisine provided is the very best of traditional Creole creations inspired by the sensuous island atmosphere. Fresh produce farmed on the island and freshly caught fish are always on the menu, but diversity is key. Meals include Asian inspired dishes and sensational sashimi, complimented by a wine list of distinctive variety. Freedom of movement around the island on foot or bicycle permits self-discovery of this special place. Alphonse Island is a refuge for people looking for an authentic but comfortable island experience. There is and will be wireless connections in the bar area and a network cable connection in the internet room.

Season

October 1st - May 31st

The trips will be based on a Sat/Sat week long schedule, with the possibility to increase the package to a 10 day trip (Wed/Sat or Sat/Wed), should there be a minimum of six clients wanting to do so. There is also the option for private charters which will allow guests to come and go as they please.

Fly Fishing

As per this season there will be a max of 12 fly anglers (two per skiff) on St François at any time. The fishing is very much tide dependent so the prevailing conditions will dictate which species you will focus on. Alphonse and St François will continue with its strict no-conventional-fishing on the flats and reefs. Perhaps the most challenging fish to catch is the fabled milkfish; a turbo charged algae eater growing to 40 pounds. The guides on Alphonse Island have pioneered techniques which have allowed these vegetarian and notoriously difficult fish to be caught.

Transportation

Anglers are transferred for the short run from Alphonse to St François lagoon by the 40’ mothership to where the skiffs are kept anchored. There will be two bluewater boats available for chartering. One will primarily be used for fly fishing and the other for conventional angling. There will be NO conventional angling next to the reef as the aim of the conventional boat will be purely for targeting pelagic species. We do require a considerable amount of fresh fish for the hotel guests and targeting pelagic species will have very little effect on our resident species. This fishing has been in place since the beginning of the season and is working extremely well.

Diving

The fully equipped dive center at Alphonse and professional team of international diving instructors will make your experience at Alphonse resort a personal, safe and unforgettable one. The sheer drop offs, rich currents and abundant sea life that surrounds the Alphonse group of Atolls makes it one of the most exciting and diverse dive destinations in Seychelles. The pristine sites around both Alphonse and St Francois are famous for warm crystal clear waters, unbleached corals, great visibility and a diverse range of fish species comprising of reef, pelagic and shark species. Daily encounters with stingrays, turtles, moray eels, barracuda, wahoo, sharks, tuna, grouper, snapper, trevally and many more make the dives extremely memorable. The thirteen Alphonse dive sites are suitable for all categories of divers, which makes the area an exciting experience for both beginners and advanced who will enjoy the various drift dives on offer. The various sites are easily accessible and vary between ten and thirty minutes from the dive boat mooring site. The dive center also offers bubble maker, discover, open water 1, and advanced scuba courses.
