Deep Sea Fishing and Inland Fishing

Deep Sea Fishing Tours in Sri LankaFishing is sacred ritual for a sizeable chunk of the male population. The lure of escaping the daily grind and catching the mystical “fish of a life time” keeps anglers coming back for more.

Getting the services of a professional fishing tour company, specially a professional guide can improve the odds of landing the perfect catch and add to the overall enjoyment of a fishing trip.        

With its extensive coast-line and numerous reservoirs and lakes, Sri Lanka is an excellent location to participate in, and enjoy the exciting sport of inland and deep sea fishing. 

Inland fishing can be arranged at any time of the year due to the relatively smooth flow of water on inland waterways and reservoirs located around Sri Lanka.  However, as with all sea-based activities, deep sea fishing in Sri Lanka is also seasonal , with the Western and Southern coasts accessible from November to April and the East coast more suitable for the activity from May to September. 

You have the option of fishing from the beach itself or venture out to sea in an in-built or out-board fibre-glass motor boat to try your hand at troll fishing. Safety equipment such as jackets as well as rods and bait, and other equipment will be supplied by us . Fishing expeditions can be arranged as day tours or as part of a longer itinerary.


“Television icon Robson Green is on a mission to discover the weird, the wonderful and the way-off-limits of the fishing world. Chasing some of the most elusive and terrifying fish on the planet, Robson, a passionate fisherman, learns new tricks, hears old stories and eats pretty much everything he catches”…

Robson Green was in Sri Lanka recently filming for Extreme Fishing conducted by IWC Media in UK. Eco Team was the local agent coordinating the filming effort, which went along for 9 days. We were delighted to host the team, and proud to have been chosen as their partner for the project in Sri Lanka! And what an exciting project it proved to be!

Sri Lanka with its many rivers, lakes and the Indian Ocean were able to give Robson a wide perspective of fishing in Sri Lanka. Some of the highlights were Mahseer fishing in the longest river in Sri Lanka (Mahaweli) River, Cave fishing at a cave which is home to thousands of bats (Wavulpone Caves), and Deep Sea Fishing off the southern seas in Hambantota, Stilt Fishing – an old custom of fishing in the shallow seas in Koggala and River Fishing in Madu Ganga. Eco Team provided research and tour planning support, coordination of government authorities and expert guide assistance to the filming team.

We’ll keep you posted when the documentary is ready and perhaps we can share a glimpse or two, in this forum in a later issue!
