Troppo Fishing Adventures Samoa
Reviewed 6 April 2018

The "fam" as Greg called us ,fished with "Troppo " for 4 days at the end of Feb this year
As you would ,I contacted "other charters" around the South Pacific before booking with the most reliable and honest operator, Greg Hopping.
He replied to my emails within hours with :Samoa's fishing calendar,weather expectations,stuff to do and a couple of options for accommodation.We chose to stay at Taumeasina Island resort , a bargain when you take advantage of the "Troppo Anglers Package " As Greg had advised us " take the "Yellow Fin and Spanish Mackeral back to the Resort and they'll prepare a meal for you. Wow ! they certainly did, 5 star service and presentation ! A huge thank you to Chef and staff
We caught 350 kg of fish during our four days .Black Marlin,sail Fish,Yellow Fin Spanish Mackerel,Giant and Bluefin trevally .Greg and his decky, Dan, know their stuff.They mixed up the fishing for us with some long outside days as well as "popping & jigging' in close around the islands .
The boat " Pure Indulgence " is so good .

So all I can say is " Go Troppo" you won't be dissapointed.
(I've already booked another trip with Greg.)

Greg and Dan - legends of the high seas. In search of big fish, the boys did not disappoint. We successfully landed 2x 45kg+ yellow fin after a double strike ensured there was action a plenty on deck while we reeled them in. Their knowledge of the local hotspots, and skills on board made it easier to have a successful trip and best of all they are both really great guys - makes it a great day out on the water.

I arranged a trip via email to Greg the Skipper as a present for my husband. We can only say it was a fabulous time albeit our timing for this adventure was during the wet season and was postponed twice due to rough weather. The team Greg (skipper) Dan and Lota (?) were more than helpful. We caught a Yellow Fin Tuna my hubby, needed some help to bring the fish in as the waters were rough, I had a 'bout' of seasickness. BUT truly wouldn't have missed this adventure!! Will definitely be coming back!! Well done guys!! Paul + Karen

Paul & Loota, what a Team, do they ever know their stuff! We booked, immediately acknowledged with a recommendation to change from a morning to afternoon charter (better tide, better fishing), from Apia (North coast instead of the South coast) for better weather, helped the inexperienced (all of us!), snacks & refreshments provided while we hauled in the big ones! Ok just one, 38kg Yellowtail Tuna, a great experience! Agreed up front we could take our catch back to our resort (Return to Paradise) & donated it to the kitchen where they prepared & served it 4 ways, for free - though they used the rest for other "fish of the day" meals of course!
Highly recommended, good value, Pure Indulgence is a very comfortable boat for the 3 of us for a 5 hour charter, could comfortably have taken more.

Logan, Belinda and I shared New Years Day 2018 with Greg and Dan. Logan turns 5 this year and wanted his first big fish - Troppo Fishing Adventures delivered! We were extremely well looked after and had a fabulous day. Plenty of fish, laughs and good times! We will be back for sure and recommend them highly.
