If you’re looking to explore the stunning waters around the Malé and Vaavu Atolls, or want to spice up your vacation in the beautiful Maldives, then come aboard Silent Hunter and get ready to sample some of the finest fish these waters have to offer!

Captain Abdul Mubeen is a Maldivian native who knows these waters intimately, and he loves introducing guests from all walks of life to some true island-style fishing. Most of his guests are friends or friends-of-friends who really love the local flavour that he adds to his trips. If you’re joining Capt. Abdul from further afield, you’ll leave your trip feeling like you’re part of the local family!

You’ll head out on your adventure in a 21’ Offshore center console, newly built in 2018. Powered by one 150 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 38 knots, this craft will take you to the hotspots in no time. The boat is fitted with GPS and fishfinder to help you on your quest. Up to 4 anglers can come aboard, so expect a quiet, chilled-out fishing trip (island-style!) that’ll let you unwind but also feel the thrill of the chase.

You’ll be cruising the waters around the Malé and Vaavu Atolls, which are known for their abundance of world-class fish. Expect to come face-to-gills with Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, a huge variety of Tuna (including the hard-fighting Yellowfin!), Red Snapper, Barracuda, and plenty more. You’ll be trying a variety of techniques to reel in your catch, including trolling, handlining, and jigging. Want to earn some serious bragging rights? Ask your captain about the possibility of spearfishing!

Capt. Abdul also offers guests the chance to take part in some snorkeling. If you’d like to explore these beautiful waters close up, just let your captain know—he can provide the gear for you.

You’ll also be provided with top-notch rods and reels to help reel in your dream catch. All you need to bring is a camera and sunscreen—come aboard Silent Hunter and get ready to explore these azure waters!
