Denis Island Sportfishing offers fishing trips and diving excursions out of Denis Island, famous for both its big fish and pristine waters. Many prized fish have been caught off the Denis shelf, most of which were hooked within a few miles of the island. The shelf’s drop-off plays host to an array of marine life, and allows fishermen ample opportunity to catch marlin, sailfish, tuna and wahoo, alongside Denis’ experienced fishing team aboard the Mako. Denis’ PADI dive centre offers courses for both beginners and dive masters, along with other speciality courses, with all equipment included. Night dives are available on special request. Two ranges of dive sites are offered on Denis Island: 1. Short range for beginners: depth from 5m-18m (15 minutes by boat), where a mixture of tropical reef fish, turtles and rays can be found. 2. Long range for advanced divers: depth 18m-30m (35 minutes by boat), where more pelagic fish, such as jack fish, mackerel, and large rays can be seen.
