Fishing activities in The Coast
If you want to ape the fish-wrestling antics of Ernest Hemingway, Deep-Sea Fishing is possible at Ocean Sports Hotel and Hemingway's (high season, up to four anglers per boat). People are a little more environmentally sensitive now than in old Ernie's day - tag and release is standard procedure.
As you might expect with all the Hemingway allusions, deep-sea fishing is popular in Malindi. Kingfisher is one of the best places on the coast to find a cheap, private deep-sea fishing charter. It has a large fleet of boats that can be rented for a 'short day' of around six hours (up to four anglers). You can also ask around the boatyard for cheaper local crews. Tag and release is recommended in all cases.
