In 2018, we introduced our latest addition to the Baia Sportfishing fleet. Unlike any other expeditions in Papua New Guinea, we now offer one of the most exciting & luxurious yacht experiences on board the 72ft Luxury Wavepiercer, Ultimate One. Designed by Craig Loomes in New Zealand, Ultimate One now finds his home in Kimbe, West New Britain, PNG. Here are some exciting fishing packages you must try!
The Ultimate One (U1) allows us to explore new reefs, rivers and destinations. So far we have explored some absolutely insane and beautiful places in the Bismarck Archipelago including, Tench Island, Kavieng, Witu Islands, Kove, Bainings and Rabaul. If you don't know where these places are, we are sure to explain them in our next blogs.
U1 can accommodate up to 6 guests in very comfortable twin share rooms fitted with en-suite and air-conditioning. We have a fully staffed crew to make your stay more enjoyable with daily laundry services, chef prepared meals and housekeeping. We are also equipped with extra activities in the event you wish to bring your family along too. Apart from the fishing adventures, Kimbe Bay is home to the world's most beautiful snorkelling & diving. Additionally, feel free to relax on the sun deck, swim above the hydraulic platform or take the kayak or paddle board to the island. There is something for everyone to enjoy.

Our 7.6m fishing tenders are extremely comfortable, spacious and versatile. Our packages offer 2 or 3 per tender options and we can tow up to 4 x 7.6m Sportfishing boats behind the Ultimate One.
When you arrive in Kimbe Airport, our bus transfer will take you to our resort, Liamo Reef Resort where the whole group will come together for a delicious dinner. Around 9pm we will begin our overnight journey to our fantastic fishing destinations in either Witu Islands for Doggies and Blue Water or Kove Region for Black Bass. Another great part about our expeditions is that you can enjoy the best of both types of fishing in our River to Reef Expedition: Here are our popular expeditions:
BLACK BASS FISHING EXPEDITION
For those embarking on the Ultimate One Black Bass tour, you can select a 6 or 8 Night Package. We will fish the rivers in the Kove region as shown on the map above, or you have another choice to visit the rivers near Baia Sportfishing Lodge. These areas are home to some of the biggest Black Bass and Spottail Bass on the planet. Spottails can only be found in New Britain Island when fishing in the Papua New Guinea region so you have the opportunity to catch two of the best fighting fish!
Our Bluewater expeditions will take you to the remote volcanic islands of Witu (as shown in map above). They are a group of active volcanic islands which are 100 nautical miles from Kimbe. During this expedition you have the opportunity to catch a variety of blue water species including, Dogtooth Tuna up to 100kg, Giant Travelley, Coral Trout, Wahoo, Mackerell, Marlin, Sailfish, Cod, Black GT and more. Check out the gallery below for some epic fish caught on our expeditions so far + the beautiful islands.
CULTURE Unlike many places you may have visited, the Papua New Guineans still practice very unique cultural ceremonies and traditions. From bride price, first child to manhood ceremonies, our Ultimate One expeditions can give you an insight to amazing cultural experience. Our guests have always said this is a highlight of their trip!
We have a range of excellent packages from fishing, culture to family holidays. Embark on a journey with us in this beautiful part of the world.
