Flying Fish

Turn your Maldivian dreams into reality by fishing with Flying Fish. Operating out of the breathtaking Male, Captain Ahmed Ihushan will do everything to show you the best of fishing the area has to offer.

He invites you to have an adventure of a lifetime aboard the “Flying Fish,” an 85’ custom-built motor yacht that can take up to 14 anglers fishing at the same time. Powered by a 265 HP Yanmar engine, this beauty combines all the comforts of a luxurious yacht with game fishing experience.

Flying Fish is a true mansion on the water – it’ fully air-conditioned, has a luxurious kitchen, 7 bedrooms with toilets, a sun deck, multimedia systems, as well as everything you’ll need for a successful day of fishing.

Your adventure will start with the crew picking you up at the airport, free of charge. The captain will show you the best offshore, reef, and wreck fisheries and teach you the most efficient techniques, including trolling, spinning, and jigging. Depending on the bite and your preferences, you’ll get the chance to reel in some of the most prestigious game species, such as Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Grouper, Barracuda, and many others.

Food and drinks (apart from alcohol) are covered by the charter, along with fishing licenses and catch cleaning. Just bring your own fishing gear and you’re good to go. There’s no minimum age so make sure to bring your little ones on an adventure they’ll remember for years to come.
