Fishing in Dubai is a great adventure, and aboard the Al Rubban you are bound to have an incredible time. Captain Donabur has over 15 years of experience, and will be with you every step of the way, to make sure you have the greatest fishing trip.

This 39’ Al Rubban has a maximum capacity of 12, so large groups are more than welcome. Capt. Donabur does suggests that only 6 anglers fish at a time for maximum comfort. For trips in the summer Capt. Donabur recommends the longer trips, which will give you plenty of time to head out to the cooler waters to catch the fish. With a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots, you’ll on the fish in an hour.

Al Rubban offers many different trips to suit all the needs of their customers. The smaller trips are better for beginners, whereas the longer trip is more suited to experienced anglers who don’t mind traveling to get on the fish. Once at the fishing spots, you can target specific species. On all the trips customers are welcome to go for a swim before heading back to shore.

You can expect to catch Kingfish, Cobia and Barracuda to name a few, through various fishing techniques such as trolling or jigging. Children are more than welcome aboard, and life vests are provided. Capt. Donabur kindly asks that pregnant women and newborns do not come aboard due to safety reasons.

To be able to fish you will need to bring along original identification documents. Capt. Donabur recommends you bring your passport. Please note, photocopies will not be accepted, and without your passport you will not be able to board.

Capt. Donabur looks forward to welcoming you and your friends and family aboard the Al Rubban, for a great day of fishing.

    The captain is very flexible on these trips, so each trip can be different. In the summer the captain recommends going further out to catch the better fish, but will follow the customer's wishes to how far offshore they would like to go. Typically they reach distances of 10 miles. He would suggest parties of 6 as a maximum, if everyone wishes to fish comfortably at the same time.

    This trip is great for the summer when the fish are further out. If you want deep fishing, reaching depths of 100 feet, the 6-hour trip will get you there. Expect to travel for up to an hour, to get to the cooler waters that the fish love. Typically, you will head up to 18 miles out. The suggested number of anglers, fishing comfortably, is 6.
