Extreme Measures

Extreme Measures Fish & Dive Charters is based at Apia Marina on the north coast of Upolu, Samoa. Your skipper Jonathan Barlow is committed to providing the best fishing, diving opportunities and customer satisfaction. Jonathan has the reputation for putting in the extra effort to make your trip a success, and a most enjoyable experience.


Jonathan has fished, dived, speared and surfed the east and west coasts of Northland, New Zealand for the past 30 years. In this time he has experienced many of Northland’s best kept secrets – tranquil bays, deep water reefs, and the mighty west coast.

In recent years Jonathan has visited Samoa on many occasions and he saw the potential of Samoa to be the next fish & dive location in the Pacific. Samoa offers warm waters, fantastic climate and year-round fishing for all pelagic species.

There are not many secrets left in the world these days and Samoa is just starting to be truly discovered as an exciting game fishing & holiday destination.
