Sharks

Phuket waters are home to several shark species but the Tiger is undoubtedly the "King".

These formidable ocean predators spend most of the daylight hours cruising along the ledge of the continental shelf - the drop off. After dark, they venture into shallower water to feed on the reef fish that abound among the coral heads and rocky reefs.

Although sharks are considered to be "vermin" by many big game anglers, they can offer exciting and rewarding sport - especially during nights spent aboard on long-range, multi-day safaris. Team Wahoo members respect all sharks and the sadly dwindling numbers have placed virtually every species on the "seriously threatened" list of ocean gamefish. We are very careful to release all sharks unharmed.

Shark attacks are virtually unheard of in Phuket waters and it is thought that they only venture into shallow water around offshore islands.

The list of shark species encountered off Phuket is endless but the significant species are: Tigers, Whaler Sharks - such as White-tipped, Black-tipped and Silver-tipped Reef Sharks, as well as the occasional Hammerhead and the aggressive Mako. Harmless Nurse Sharks and Leopard Sharks are common and very popular among Scuba Divers - but less so among game fishermen.

Shark fishing enthusiasts would be in their element during the hours of darkness off the Andaman Islands. The area must be one of the last remaining strongholds of these wonderful creatures. Night catch and release shark fishing sessions often result in numerous captures.
