Le Performant Sport Fishing – 47'

For an unforgettable adventure in the waters around Mauritius, join Le Performant Sport Fishing! Captain Permal Nimalen is a third-generation angler, and he’s been passionate about fishing since he was a kid. He’ll make sure to take you to all the honey holes in the area, ensuring success on your expedition.

Hop about his 47’ custom offshore sportfishing boat powered by twin 275 HP Cummins engines. The boat is outfitted with a private bathroom, as well as a spacious salon that can accommodate up to 10 people. You don’t have to sacrifice any comfort, and you can bring your friends and family along for a wonderful ride.

For fishing, you’ll use a variety of Penn International equipment, along with fighting chairs, outriggers, downriggers, centerrigger, and a diverse range of lures necessary for fishing these waters. If you decide to keep some of the catch, the captain will be happy to clean and fillet your fish, so you can take it to the table for a taste.

Monsters and 1000-pounders are certainly not unheard of in these waters, but if you’re just looking for a relaxing day out, there are lots of smaller, yet formidable fish you can target as well. The species commonly fished for include Billfish, Wahoo, Shark, Mahi Mahi, and Bonito, depending on the season.

Feel free to bring your kids along for the ride, and make some amazing family memories! All you need to bring is some food in order to stay refreshed, and some sun protection so you can enjoy your day.

Explore the pristine waters off the coast of Mauritius, and have a memorable time with Le Performant Sport Fishing!

Born into a fisherman family with over 50 years of experience, Captain Nimalen used to accompany his father, a fisherman, as he went fishing in a wooden canoe. After years of being hard at work, they purchased their first engine boat in 1984. It went off from there and in 2000, Capt. Nimalen started his own big game fishing business. After catering to a variety of satisfied clients, he was able to buy his first boat - Le Performant 1. Demand kept rising, and along came Le Performant 2, 3 and 4!
