Rompin | Tioman | Pulau Aur 
March - Mid October 2018

Sailfish Fishing

Tioman Island is a fantastic holiday destination if you want to combine game fishing for Sailfish, Dorado, King Mackerel and Black Marlin with luxury yacht charter.


East of Tioman Island, the waters are deeper and here you often find nice size Dorado and Black Marlin (50-250 lb size) during the full moon and new moon period, there are many Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs) in the area that hold a lot of Dorado, Sailfish, King Mackerel and other game fish species you can normally catch, or use live bait in the morning around the FADs.


The distance to the Sailfish areas from Tioman Island is almost the same as from Kuala Rompin, and you often find bigger fish (60-100 lb size) there in the beginning of the season. South of Tioman at Palau Aur and Palau Pemanggil the fishing for Narrow barred King Mackerel and Black Marlin is good and also bottom fishing and jigging for other species is an alternative to the game fishing action.


The Season


Sailfishing season begins in March and ends last week of October. The Northeast season runs from mid-November to March and is not suitable for fishing due to strong winds and choppy water conditions, during this time trips are available to Palau Perak out of Penang. During the fishing season the seas are normally calm making our charter trips comfortable for our guests.

Tioman Island also offers anglers a range of light jigging and bottom fishing for various species. It is a very safe place to visit for you and your family, street crime is non-existent and the locals are very friendly, the Tioman beaches are world-class and the local food is some of the best you will ever eat.


Many of beach front resorts on the island have their own jetties, so you can be dropped off & picked up by the Captain for your evening trips ashore.


Pulau Aur is an island in Mersing, Johor, Malaysia. 76 kilometres east of Mersing Town and is part of the Johor Marine Park. Its corals, lagoons and offshore pools make it a tourist attraction. It has for many years also always been a frequent stopover point for fishermen.

There is also a smaller island close by, Dayang Island, which is separated from Aur Island by a narrow channel of about 400 metres (1,300 ft) width at the narrowest point.


Sebana Cove Marina is situated 5 miles up the Santi River, entrance opposite the eastern tip of Singapore Island. The initial approach from the Johor Strait should be carefully planned by skippers of deep draft vessels, as depths can drop to 2m in places.

Sebana Cove is a beautiful and remote location, and the marina and resort here are slowly being renovated. If you have already provisioned the boat and are looking for somewhere to relax, it's a good choice.
