“We make your fishing dreams come true” – that’s the slogan of our partner in PNG … and in fact a look at the map is enough to imagine that fishing dreams come true here. Papua New Guinea is actually quite remote in the far southeast corner of the Asian continent. .
But if you then look at where the actual fishing grounds are, you understand at the latest that it can hardly be more remote and that the sea predators in this region have hardly ever seen hooks or even nets.
The journey takes you to the “Long Reef”, which extends about 50 km southeast of Alotau (the southeastern tip of PNG) over the same distance to the east. Of course, such an area is not so easily accessible and would be far too remote for day trips from the coast. Therefore we use the very comfortable mother ship “K20” to get to the reef and will live here on board for a week.
How to get there
Open 23 and 26 foot boats with outboard motors are used for fishing.
During the week long tour to Long Reef you stay on the mother ship “K20”
Trips to the "Long Reef" in Papua New Guinea
We offer guided tours for individual drivers at irregular intervals – the dates can be found here. We can organize individual appointments for groups. The “K20” can accommodate up to 12 people. Dates, schedule and prices please on request.
You can find an example of a possible itinerary below.
Flight from Germany (e.g. with Emirates via Dubai) to Singapore or Hong Kong. Flights from other countries on request.
Even if the journey seems endless based on the data, it only looks so dramatic due to the time difference. In total you are “only” about 25 hours on the road.
Onward flight to Alotau and then transfer to K 20 and embarkation. Briefing on board, preparation of the equipment and departure towards Long Reef.
