The Ika Vuka

Our custom-built longboat is perfect for topwater fishing and jigging on the reefs and drop-offs around Namotu and neighbouring islands.

Ika Vuka is our custom built boat for topwater fishing and is also an excellent surf boat. The Ika Vuka and its local captain Ulai are available to charter for half day, full day or week long fishing and surf charters.

The Ika vuka is is essentially an upgraded Namotu longboat with two casting platforms, plenty of deck space and 115HP 4stroke outboard. There’s enough space for up to 3 guests and you can even pack surfboards for a complete adventure. Half day charters are ideal for guests checking out in the morning but not flying till the evening meaning you can now spend an extra day on the water either surfing, fishing or exploring rather than at the airport.

We supply casting rods, spinning reels, terminal gear, esky, ice and some jigging/casting gear. We bring drinks, snacks and lunch on full day trips to keep you fuelled up and hydrated. Although some beers are included, if you want to arrange more, just ask! The Ika Vuka’s captain is Namotu’s famous surf guide and fisherman, Ulai or one of our epic alternatives when he’s on break.


You don’t need to be a guest on Namotu to book these charters; if you’re staying close by we can drop you to/from your resort (check your location prior to booking).
