Can I rent one of those boats on my own?

Fishing tours
Inside the lagoon and outside the reef (not deep sea), we practice trolling with lures and catch mainly predators (kingfish, skipjack, tuna, etc).
For any other fishing techniques or specific request, we recommend to require in advance for confirmation.

Please note that fishing is not authorized on self-drive boat rentals (Quintrex & Pontoon boats).

Private transfers
For your information, most of the Hotels offer a shuttle service from and to the airport. We’d recommend to contact the reservation agent of your Hotel for more information.
