    Fishing Adventures and Malaysian Scenery

    GeckoAdventure offers fishing adventures. From quiet weekends away fishing somewhere to 4x4 fishing adventure trips or quiet kayak fishing trip we can satisfy your inland or blue water fishing requirements. The Malaysian Tropical Jungle offers a wide variety of fishing, from the legendary Giant Snakehead or what is locally known as the Toman to the elusive Sebarau (Jungle Perch) and Kelah (Malaysian Masheer).

    Our guides are always ready to take you on a fishing safari in the Malaysian Tropical jungle or the blue ocean.

    Fishing in Malaysia (Fresh and Blue Water)
    At Gecko Adventure we provide our fishing guide services for the following:

    The Giant Snakehead/ Channa micropeltes (Toman)
    This species is prolific in the man made dams, lakes and rivers in Malaysia. This is one of the most famous fresh water sports fishing species. With its tenacious looks and aggressive nature the Toman is deemed to be one of the most if not “the most vicious and aggressive†fresh water fish in existence. Pound for pound this is the hardest fighting fresh water fish in Malaysia, with its ability to destroy reels and crush lures and break fishing rods, all in a blink of an eye. Fishing Toman is what we call “close quarter†fishing as they are sneaky creatures which would usually hold near sunken logs and tree stumps, as such we do recommend the usage of nothing below 30lb test gear. We can fish Toman all year round in Malaysia however the best time to fish it would be from Mid December till end August.

    Jungle Perch (Sebarau)
    This species can be found in streams, dams and lakes. Their numbers unfortunately have dwindled and are somewhat a rarity these days. They are also another fish that is famous for its aggressive nature hunt in schools; they readily take fast moving lures. The Sebarau is a great sportfish; and anything below 2kg is great fun and will give you a good fight on light tackle. The Sebarau which weighs from 2 kilogram and above are highly sought after by anglers for their legendary speed, power and fighting prowess. They are known for their ability to crush hooks and crushing lures. The Sebarau are exceptionally active at dawn and dusk, they can be found near submerged logs or overhanging trees and weedy banks - flooded banks etc are also favorites. We can fish Sebarau all year round, best time to fish Sebarau is during the Monsoon and wet season from Mid November till end March.

    Peacock Bass
    This is an introduced species and can be found in the central region of Malaysia, mainly in mining ponds and lakes. They readily take lures and flies. The Peacock Bass that are 12 inches and above gives a great fight. We can fish this species all year round.

    SailFish (Istiophorus platypterus)
    Malaysia has one of the top Sailfish (the smallest and fastest member of the Bill fish family) fishing grounds in the world and is also known as the best sailfish fishing grounds in Asia. With high numbers during sailfish fishing season you would be able to hook up anything from 5 to 20 over sailfish a day around 30kg to 40kg size each. We can fish for the Sailfish from April till October, season is at its best from August till October, and we do not have any charters from November till March due to the Monsoon. Please note bookings for sail fishing are usually made by anglers 12 months in advance (yes they book again when they finish their trips). Short notice bookings are can be difficult to accomodate.

    Fishing with Gecko Adventure (Fresh and Blue water)

    At Gecko Adventure no inland body of water is deemed inaccessible or blue water too far; if there are fish we will find it and fish it.
    If you are serious angler or just looking for an excuse to get back to nature or some fun in the sun, come and join us on our fishing trips, we have a wide variety of trips planned through out the year targeting different species of fish all year round.
    All our guides are well versed in the area which the fishing safari runs, and also most forms of fishing. We believe in providing you with the proper information and guidance that will give you the best chance to land that trophy fish.
    At Gecko Adventure we are pro-conservation and as such all fishing trips organized by us are pure catch and release trips or observe strict bag limits.
    All our fishing trips come fully equipped, from the 4x4, all the way to the fishing boats and fishing kayaks; we have the experience, local knowledge and equipment you will ever need for your Malaysian Fishing Adventure.

    Riverboarding/Sledging/Hydrospeed/Ripboard

    As seen on the CBS reality show - the Amazing Race

    Riverboarding is called sledging in New Zealand and hydrospeed in Europe. Whatever it's called, riverboarding is awesome! You can now experience the thrill of having warm whitewater in your face, with GeckoAdventure, the pioneer and only riverboarding operator in Malaysia.
    Down a whitewater river without a paddle? Who says you need a kayak or a rubber raft to have fun on whitewater when you can have the river in your face?
    Remember that reality series, The Amazing Race V where contestants were suited up in helmets, wet suits and flippers and thrown into a fast flowing river with a couple of boards?
    This is called riverboarding. Some people know it as hydrospeed while others know it as river luging. It's a major extreme sports craze in New Zealand and Europe. After The Amazing Race, it has become the new extreme sports craze in the US and has been rated by National Geographic one of the top 10 fastest-growing extreme sports in the world.
    Anyone can now experience riverboarding in Malaysian rivers, where the waters are warmer than Europe, New Zealand, the USA and Canada. On top of that, because of the scenic wildlife teeming in Malaysian rivers, those who riverboard down the river can take their time in between rapids to check out the vibrant flora and fauna that populate Malaysian jungles. GeckoAdventure offers riverboarding trips down rapids from Grade 1 to 4.
    However, we insist that beginners try the easier levels first before attempting the raging waters that are Grade 4 rapids. A competant skill level must be shown before any grade 4 rapid is attempted.
    To ensure that riverboarders who want to try higher graded rivers are prepared, GeckoAdventure will also keep a log book of their river runs.

    Currently, GeckoAdventure offers 5 riverboarding hotspots (in order of our thrill meter).
