Quality holidays on Socotra with SOCOTRA TAMAM

Socotra is one of the rare pearls of the Earth.

The archipelago has long been isolated from the rest of the world, but there is a tourist boom in Socotra now, constrained only by a shortage of air tickets. Civilization and mass tourism are already coming with all the ensuing problems.

We do not play dumping and still offer good service for organized groups and individuals. We make custom programs on any topic and we have new places and routes for those who are going to Socotra again. We provide special terms to agencies and tour leaders.

There is a big difference between visiting and seeing Socotra island.
SOCOTRA TAMAM are working on the second.

Fly fishing - Socotra exploratory trip report
Fly fishing - Socotra exploratory trip report

Three weeks ago I set out to film an exploratory fly fishing trip to the Socotra archipelago with Edward Truter who was representing Tourette Fishing. There was a huge amount of excitement among us fly fishing bums as Socotra has proved to be an incredible destination for jigging and popping for GT’s and other species with proof coming from the trips Wild Sea Expedition has done there. The average size and number of GT’s is simply astounding and it is certainly a prime spot for this kind of fishing. Owing to the structure and location of the islands the average size and quality of fish species is incredible.

Socotra for cruisers. Report of sailing yacht Delta

"On our way back from a circumnavigation, in March 2014 we started from Maldives, headed to visit the Socotra island in Yemen and become the first sailing yacht to come there in recent years... In our opinion, navigation from India, Sri-Lanka or the Maldives to Bab-el-Mandeb with a stopover on Socotra is a good alternative to navigation with stops in Oman and continental Yemen." Andrey Nevzorov, Captain of sailing yacht Delta
