Boats take tourists to the large floating platforms just a kilometer out in Pattaya Bay. Tourists can experience something new with families and friends and also enjoy fresh seafood they catch themselves.

Prices start at just 400 baht per person with speedboats leaving from Bali Hai Pier on the hour from 5-7 p.m. with a maximum five people. Boats will return at 11 p.m. or earlier if a group of 10 travels back at the same time.

Included is a fishing pole, the seafood you catch, plus sauces and vegetables. Cold drinks also are available at reasonable prices. Male and female restrooms also are available. Beautiful sunset off Pattaya bay is a great additional value if you travel on a clear sky day. The weather now is indisputably prefect for sea excursion and new fishing experience. While Pattaya still has a long list of weekend activities and events to offer, squid fishing is not also a good idea for a half day relaxationif you fancy fishing and cook up the fresh seafood yourself on the floating raft.

Staff can help customers make sashimi from the squid they catch or grill it.

The upcoming long holidays is one week ahead (Nov 19-22).
