My wife and have been on many fishing charters in NZ and all have been top notch but they have a long way to go to meet the standard that we got with Troppo. From the time we stepped onboard the well maintained boat we were well looked after by skipper Randy and crew Ollie. We both managed to catch some great fish thanks to Randy's knowledge of the area and Ollie's expert advice. A brilliant experience for us both. We highly recommend them.
Cameron Pitches ***** April 2023
First time big game fishing and Greg and crew were just the team to take us out. Plenty of room for the whole family and we were well looked after. Fish weren't biting for the first few hours but just as we started heading back to port - bang! A decent sized sailfish took the line. Turns out it's a bit of a workout to get one of those in, but we did. Tagged and released to fight another day. A great experience, thanks Troppo Fishing.

Awesome afternoon out despite the rough seas. We all had the most amazing time, Ian and Randy were both incredibly knowledgeable. A great time had by all!

Hola Greg Hopping. I think your back in Samoa now and if you haven’t heard…from our perspective we kicked ass on our trip with Randy, Oli, Tua and Ian. I landed a beautiful 45Kg Yellow Fin Tuna and a nice Blue Fin Trevally that the hotel chef made Sashimi and Pan fried for us,,,it was absolutely delicious….what a great experience with a great crew..had fun, caught big game fish, got sunburned, got the 1 hour fight in for both to get them on board and dint do any chumming so checked ALL the boxes…everyone was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the company during the down time. When the Tuna were on the hook Oli made it perfect by helping just enough to get us tired but not make it agony so we have our first big game fish story..in any case, we are hopeful we can go out again one day in the not to distant future.
Also... I left 3 bottles of Tequila for the Troppo team that Im fully confident will go to good use
Many thanks again for lending us Randy and your crew for a day it went beyond our expectations.

Is pretty simple, Greg, Randy, Tautua and Ollie will make sure you have the best fishing experience you can ever have. Lots of laughs, good people, big fish, experience and great vessel. Do not waist your time looking for any other fishing charters in Samoa. Troppo Fishing will make sure your body will ache after fighting fish all day. What a trip.
We came to Samoa on a quest: to catch a mahi mahi. Yellowfin tuna leapt high above the waves, but none took the hook. Then, after crisscrossing the ocean, Misha bent into a fish, and 25 minutes later, a 16kg bull mahi clattered aboard in a shower of green and silver flashes. The moral of the story? Greg, Randy and the team love rising to a challenge. Why not test them with yours?

Best charter fishing experience! My brother and I had an unforgettable time on Pure Indulgence and Get r Done. We spent several days trolling out wide on PI for pelagic species. Popping for Great Trevally in close on GrD. Jigged for Dogtooth Tuna over seamounts and Spanish Mackerel on divers and skirts to top it all off. What a time!!! The whole team is extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. The Skipper Greg will put you on the fish and Tautua with years of skippering and deckhand experience himself will help you through the rest. Can't thank you enough Team Troppo for putting me on my first Blue Marlin, GT, and Dogtooth Tuna. I Will definitely be back for more!
I've fished in charters all around the world and Greg and the guides are the most experienced and passionate crew i have fished with. If you want to catch a fish of a lifetime like we did you need the best tackle, knowledge of the area, and crew that works their backside off all day to ensure you have the best experience possible...its not just a job with these guys...
Metotisi Toohill ***** December 2022
4 hours fishing Inshore, and 7 good Spanish Mackerel. More than we could ever have imagined. Thanks to Greg and team for a great fishing trip.
I did a half day tour with them and had a brilliant time. I caught a big mahi mahi and had a chance to land a blue marlin but dropped him. Thanks Greg
Georgina Newton-Lui ***** October 2022
Our family of novice fisher people had a fantastic time with Troppo Fishing Adventures. Our skipper Gregg made sure we went out on a day that was great for boating and fishing - he took us to all his favourite spots and we hit the lottery with 8 fish - 1 for each of us, most fishing for the first time. We even had the privilege of nabbing a GT which we dutifully returned to the ocean for the next lucky angler!
Dean Eckford ***** September 2022
Second time fishing with Hoppo and Tatua and first time since the border reopened and the boat has had its massive re-fit. Boat is practically new now and is a great platform. We had three days of pretty rough weather but managed to land 25 fish of varying species with pretty consistent action. Hoppo followed the birds all over the ocean and is a genuine keen fisho so wants to see his anglers get the fish. Great value for money and we will be back for sure to try some of the popping and jigging we have missed out on due to the weather. Malo Hoppo and hoping the tourists flock back now Samoa is open again!
Unbelievable experience, THE BEST ! Samoa's borders opened and I was on a plane and back to fish with Hoppo. This was my 4th trip and I got to land a 54kg tuna and release and beautiful sailfish. After releasing a blue marlin on my previous trip, it was once more, a life changing event. Samoa is teeming with sea life, but if it's not on the chew on the day you would be very unlucky. What a boat, what a crew ! Thank you all.
Billy Van Der Kooi ***** January 2020
Greg “Hoppo” was an amazing Skipper & Guide. His extensive knowledge and experience is second to none. Not only did he put me onto so many GTs and Spaniards, he also took the time to show me his favourite places to tour around the island. We have already booked our next trip to Samoa in January 2021 and can’t wait to come back.
Thanks Hoppo, you’re a Legend!
Paul Fuller ***** January 2020
Fantastic 2 days aboard Pure Indulgence. With Greg’s expertise and knowledge of the surrounding area we cleaned up. Marlin, Yellow Fin, GT’s, Spanish Mackerel, Job Fish to name a few. Thoroughly recommend a trip with Troppos Fishing Adventures.
Manuele Puka ***** August 2019
Very friendly and fully geared up... thank you heaps and very much looking forward to our next fishing adventure with you.... 10/10 for sure.
Cam Stothers ***** September 2018
10/10. Great team, great boat, awesome quality gear. It’s a treat to fish on Pure Indulgence and Greg and Dan were knowledgeable as well as really good blokes. The banter was almost as good as the fishing!
Ben Ross ***** July 2018
Great group of guys & excellent value for money. We'll be back!
Daniel Mennie ***** July 2018
We did 2 full days with Greg, Dan, Joey and Skip. Awesome couple of days!! Great weather, great fishing and great company...would highly recommend.
Latisha Walton ***** June 2018
We did a full day charter on Pure Indulgence. We had a fantastic day of fishing! Caught a once in a lifetime monster 67.5kg YFT, which is now the current Samoa Ladies Record. A range of species caught including 3 big yellowfin tuna, 6 Spanish mackerel and rainbow runners. Amazing! Greg, Dan, and Joey were great hosts and very attentive. Will be back again to fish with these guys for sure.
Brent R Giles ***** May 2018
Unfortunately I could only manage a half day fishing this trip but what a great success. Their local knowledge got me into some Spanish straight away. And what a great group of guys to go fishing with. 6 Spanish, 1 Wahoo and 1 Yellow fin all in a half day charter. I'll definitely be back with more time on my hands for a couple of full day charters or even live aboard adventure. Thanks again for a great day guys.
Steve Parkinson ***** April 2018
Jess and I had great day out with Greg and Dan. Fishing is just as much about the company as it is about tight lines and Troppo delivered on both. Greg and Dan have plenty of local fishing knowledge, banter and motivation which I needed for the 10 minute fight I had reeling in a 25kg GT.
Matt Thompson ***** January 2018
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.
Guy Littlefair ***** October 2017
I’ve had the chance to fish most of the best parts of the world over the years with a lot of crews and skippers. Greg and his team are the best. 5* ever time. See you again soon boys.
James Ring ***** September 2017
A special day for me and Hayley. Great boat. Greg and Dan where fantastic hosts and 2 beautiful Mahi Mahi, one each and Hayley's was her first game fish.
If you’re in Samoa and want to fish with true professionals then Troppo Fishing are the team for you.
Thanks guys for a true bucket list experience. Whales too!
Olivier Langohr ***** August 2017
First game fishing trip for me and my partner. We went for a half day to catch a massive Wahoo, big king cuda and a bloody big Red bass. Yay! What a treat! Thanks to Tautua for this awesome time and to all the Troppo team for organising this perfectly.
Baz Grouby Jr. ***** July 2017
Wicked day with the boys from Troppo fishing charters, great hospitality and the fish played ball too.
We will be back for sure. Thanks Greg, Dan and Mike
Ali Gee ***** June 2017
Richie and I chartered Pure Indulgence for a full day in June. We cannot speak highly enough of Greg and Dan- their professionalism, knowledge and customer service was unbeatable. We had a cracking day on the water with these guys (7 Mahi- Mahi's and 2 x 56kg yellow fin tunas) and would definitely recommend Troppo Fishing Adventures for anyone wanting to chase big fish in Samoa. Definitely be seeing you guys again!
Frank Noshie ***** May 2017
Absolutely 5 star! My brother and I had blast with the boys from Troppo Fishing Adventures, they know their stuff. Plenty of golden moments and great memories were made, including some 50kg+ YFT and plenty of mahi mahi. Samoa is defiantly a fisherman’s paradise and we can't wait to do it again next year. Cheers guys
Amy Green ***** May 2017
We fished as a couple with Troppo for 5 days in April. We had an amazing time! Greg's hospitality was second to none from the planning stages of our holiday until the end (even when things didn't go to plan) Loota was very entertaining and worked hard to find our target species. We got some great fish and were treated to some awesome scenery. Daniel worked the deck and ensured we were always comfortable. Would give the whole team at Troppo 6 stars if we could! Will definitely be back.
I've been fishing with Troppo Fishing every year since 2010. Make a yearly trip from where I work in Kuwait over to Samoa.Why you may ask? 1) I always have a excellent time fishing with Troppo Fishing, 2) Lot of good fishing - marlin, dorado, yellowfin, dog tooth, wahoo, dorado, sailfish, 3) People on Samoa are great, 4) Great weather, 5) Nice relaxing time - and I could go on a bit. When you get ready to go to Samoa and want to try your hand at fishing look up Troppo Fishing. They'll take care of you and put you on some fish. I've never been disappointed.
