Le Performant 1

Grand Baie, Rivière du Rempar…
Grand Baie, Mauritius

Captain Nimalen is at the helm of the Le Performant Sport Fishing fleet, which has in recent years expanded to four vessels. You could say fishing runs in Nimalen’s blood: he is a third-generation angler, and his father is well-known in Cap-Malheureux for his fishing skills. Nimalen has been passionate about fishing ever since he was a child, and now his passion has earned him a fleet of four superb fishing vessels, and several local fishing records along the way.

Le Performant 1 is a 47’ vessel powered by twin 275HP Cummins engines. The boat is outfitted with a private bathroom, as well as a spacious salon that can accommodate up to 10 people. For fishing, a variety of Penn International reels are used (2x 130lbs, 3x 80lbs, 4x 50lbs), along with flybridge, fighting chairs, outriggers, downriggers, centerrigger, and a diverse range of lures necessary for fishing these waters. Among other things you’ll find on board, there are first aid kits, life jackets, a rescue buoy, as well as various navigational electronics (GPS, VHS radio, portable mobile).

Whether you’re looking for a classic deep sea excursion in Mauritius, or would rather indulge yourself in some productive bottom fishing, popping, jigging, or light tackle fishing, the team at Le Performant is happy to cater to your specific fishing needs. The company is respected for its good customer service that ensures each charter group goes on a trip tailored to their specific needs, with all the staff doing their utmost to make sure everyone on board is having a good time.

Granders 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 (Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Sailfish), Wahoo, Shark, Mahi Mahi, Bonito and many others, depending on the season.

About the Charter Operator

Permal Nimalen
Grand Baie, Mauritius
Member since May 2014
Born into a fisherman family with over 50 years of experience, 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, 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!
