Big game fishing in Mauritius is as good as it gets for lovers of this sensational discipline, especially in the north of the island which offers an unmatched fishing destination within reach of seasoned anglers or beginners. Sail off from Grand Baie for a full or half-day trip towards Gunner’s Quoin (Coin de Mire Island) and Flat Island, surrounded by waters teeming with magnificent game fish.

Mauritian waters are home to an abundance of aquatic life making it possible to reel in quite a variety of catches. If you are lucky enough, you will get to tease the giant blue marlin, black marlin, mako shark, blue shark, yellowfin tuna, bonito, wahoo or the sailfish. Tangling with those sea monsters can result in fights lasting up to 3 hours, the record in Mauritius being 26 hours!

Sport fishing service providers generally offer boat trips for a maximum of 3 fishermen and 3 accompanying persons. These trips combine sensational fishing experiences but also the pleasure of a sea trip commanding incredible views of the lagoon along the coast of Cap Malheureux or the cliffs of Coin de Mire.

Embark on a private fishing trip!

If you dream of living special moments, you can always book a fishing boat all for yourself and benefit from the assistance of seasoned guides well accustomed to all kinds of fishing techniques. Immortalise this unforgettable experience by posing alongside your most beautiful catch!
