Christmas Island Hosted Travel
Where in the World?
Located approximately 1400 miles due south of Hawaii and 144 miles north of the equator, the tiny coral dot of Kiritimati lies squarely in the middle of the Pacific ocean. One could liken this destination to be the "easiest to get to middle of nowhere"
Amidst the immense inventory of saltwater fly fishing destinations on Earth, just about every saltwater fly-angler has heard of Christmas Island. Christmas island has all the critical elements for a successful fly fishing trip, all in one place. Year round tropical weather, generally light to medium winds, and hard sand flats with incredible numbers of bonefish and cruising giant trevallies, punctuated by tailing trigger fish.
Whether you are a novice saltwater angler, or you are a seasoned veteran, Christmas Island Outfitters has the most intimate angling experience this atoll has to offer. Each and every guide at Christmas Island Outfitters has been hand picked for their level of experience and skill, calmness under pressure and instructional abilities. We think our clients would be hard pressed to find a better group of saltwater fly fishing guides.
Each day, anglers will be transported to the flats via outrigger canoe or truck. Both are equipped with bench seats, canopies, and rod holders. The standard package includes 1 guide to every 2 angler. However, a personalised 1 angler to 1 guide package is available for a very reasonable additional cost. Practically all fishing is done while wading and sight casting, which makes this additional cost completely worthwhile. There are plenty of Bonefish that cater to all skill levels from groups of mudding fish to small cruising groups to technical tailing singles. For anglers looking at the challenge of Giant Trevally, focus is key and one could go an entire week looking for that one fish of a lifetime. This pursuit certainly has much higher stakes than Bonefishing, the results are often far more exciting and the guides at Christmas Island Outfitters are passionate about this pursuit.
Christmas Island Outfitters caters to no more than 12 anglers per week- including the trip host. Accommodations consist of several private bungalows that sleep up to 8. Rooms are clean, simple, spacious, with fans, screened windows and en-suite bathroom. The common areas feature a friendly bar and casual dining room where breakfast and dinner are served. Small by design to ensure flexibility, Christmas island Outfitters varies the schedule daily to suit the best tides and fishing conditions.
