Dear sport fishermen,
the annual start of the season with tours to southern Egypt from Hamata to St. John’s Reef has been very popular for a long time. A week of fishing in the Red Sea – Raas Banas, Abu Madd, Humairah, Shalatin – to name just a few of the top spots you will head for.
The waters in the deep south of Egypt, as far as the Sudanese border, were almost inaccessible for anglers for a long time, as there were hardly any boats that made trips to fish in this region. Fortunately, this has now changed and from the 2021 season we can offer you a new boat that is perfect for such long-range tours: The “Aqua Star 2”, actually developed for divers, can also be used very well for fishing. The technical data of the boat is convincing, and you can easily spend a week on board here: 32 meters (!) Long, 6.75 meters wide, 2 Mercedes engines with 500 hp each, 12 double cabins each with their own shower / toilet, and a large one Salon – and of course plenty of deck space for fishing. The boat usually takes 24 divers on board – but only 6 anglers are planned for the fishing trips. This not only means that every guest on board can move into their own individual cabin, but also that you can hardly stand in your way on deck.
This tour will – like many of our single-driver tours meanwhile – have a special focus on jigging, poppers and natural bait fishing. If we drive longer distances, certainly a little trolling. Target fish are Giant Trevally, King Mackerel, Barracuda, various types of Tuna, Groupers and also Sharks. So it is a “Little Big Game” and therefore this tour is also perfect for anglers who want to get to know this kind of fishing a little better.
Schedule of the tour:
Flight from Germany to Hurghada / Egypt (Departure from other countries on request). From there transfer to Hamata (approx. 4.5 hours), where you board the “Aqua Star 2”. You spend the first night in the harbor before you set off early the next morning towards the south to the fishing grounds.
One week on board the “Aqua Star 2” including full board. Fishing is practically possible around the clock, depending on where the boat can anchor at night. Accommodation in a single cabin.
Return to Hamata, transfer to Hurghada and flight back home

Number of participants: 6
Price per person € 2.199, –
This price only applies as long as we get the flights in the currently available booking classes – and that can unfortunately change at short notice. You won’t get back to Little Big Game fishing that cheap!
There are only 6 places in total for each of these tours – so if you are interested, you should not hesitate too long …
