Deep sea fishing in Sri Lanka is a golden opportunity for tourists to participate in the exciting sport with its extensive coast-line and numerous reservoirs and lakes. Inland fishing can be arranged at any time of year due to the constant smoothness of the water on inland waterways and reservoirs located around Sri Lanka. But Sri Lanka’s deep sea fishing dependent on the season , with western and southern coasts accessible from November to April and the east coast being more suitable from May to September. You can use an in-built or out-board fibre –glass motor boat and try troll fishing. All safety jackets, rods and bait, and other equipment will be supplied. Fishing tours can be arranged on a day basis or as part of a longer itinerary.
“Stilt Fishing” which is commonly known as “Riti Panna “ is a traditional method of fishing in Sri Lanka. With Sri Lanka experiencing a surge in tourist arrivals, the country’s coastal belt too has seen an influx of travelers.
We did three trips with him and all were TOP!
The trip to Yala was awesome, because we saw many anymals there. Our driver was really dedicated to show us everything in the park. The river safari in Bentota was a nice experience. It is a great place to see birds , lizards and crocodiles, also to make unforgetable photos with a baby crocodile. More>>
We used VTS during our 2-week stay at the Centara Ceysands hotel in Bentota (see separate review for hotel). Arranging tours with VTS was very straightforward. I arranged via email on our arrival in Sri Lanka. VTS responded to my emails very promptly
We did two separate tours with VTS tours. The first to sigiriya and damballa caves. The second to yala national park. Both trips were great. The driver Rohan spoke really good English and was very knowledgeable about the area. He really looked after us. Would definitely recommend.
