Marlin Cruise

It’s time to book an unforgettable adventure in Mauritius with Marlin Cruise. Give yourself the best opportunity to target awesome big game with Captain Amaury De Cambiaire. With nearly a decade of experience, he knows the best places to take you to make sure you have the most productive day out on the water.

Step on board his 26’ Berger center console, which can easily have you and 3 of your fishing friends on board. With twin 50 HP Yamaha engines, you’ll get to the fishing grounds before you know it. The fishfinder, paired with the captain’s extensive knowledge, will also help in giving you that extra edge out on the water.

The day will be spent chasing some very cool species, such as Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Dogtooth Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Bonito, and more. If you want to bring the little ones along, please talk to the captain prior to the trip. Generally, children over 8 will be fine aboard.

You’ll mostly be trolling on this trip, and using light tackle once at the F.A.D. This gives you the wider opportunity to target Marlin and Tuna, all within 10 miles of shore. Less time traveling to the fishing grounds allows you to spend more time fishing for your trophy catch.

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels that won’t let you down when you’re reeling in the monsters of the deep. There are also non-alcoholic drinks, but you are welcome to bring along your own snacks. A fishing license is not required on these trips.

Book now for a trip of a lifetime that will leave you the envy of all your friends. You are sure to come back time and time again with Marlin Cruise for all of your fishing adventures.
