Tour In Brief

Deep sea fishing is a great way to kick-start your day and requires an early start as well. You will experience fishing in some of most bountiful waters as the Indian Ocean holds species of fish including tuna, jackfish, red and white snapper, barracuda, small sharks, groupers, dorado, giant trevally and the spectacular wahoo.

Your fishing experience will begin at 6 a.m. from the docks and take you out on a 4-hour (or longer on request) fishing expedition. Safety and comfort is paramount to us and our boat will be fully equipped with GPS, lavatory facilities, a cabin and lifejackets. We will also provide our clients with fishing equipment, bait as well as refreshments. If you are lucky with your catch, we will even prepare the fish for you in our restaurant during our lunch service or you can take it back with you (This feature may add extra cost).

For deep sea fishing we recommend you use our range of trolling rods and reels while we offer both live and artificial bait. Our boats will be skippered by professional fishermen with many years of experience in game fishing.
