Step aboard a 37’ vessel, custom built in 2017 and powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines. On board you will find top of the line international tackle, featuring the craftsmanship of Shimano, Carpenter, and Ripple Fisher. The crew recommends fishing in groups of five or less for the most comfortable experience.

Rest assured that you are in good hands aboard this boat. The Maakeyolhu crew has a track record of landing huge fish day in and day out, and they are committed to providing an unforgettable experience. They specialize in jigging and popping for big game fish, in addition to a variety of other techniques.

While fishing in Male Atoll you might reel in Wahoo, Giant Trevally, Sailfish, and various kinds of Tuna. A wide variety of Maldives reef fish also inhabit these waters, such as Coral Trout, Red Seabass, and Grouper. These species never cease to amaze anglers with their vibrant colors and excellent table fare.

The crew will help you try your hand at various methods such as jigging, popping, trolling, and bottom fishing. They rarely travel far from shore, either casting along the coastline or trolling half a mile from the drop off. This allows you to spend more time reeling in a big one and less time getting there.

Maakeyolhu Fishing Charters include bait and all the gear you need. Snacks and bottled water, soft drinks, lunch, and pickup service are all included in your trip.

Book your trip today and come aboard for the thrill of a lifetime!

It was an excellent trip, we had about 20 catches that day and the food was great.

We’ve been on our honeymoon on Maldives and heard that MUST do is fishing. We’ve booked Maakeyolgu with Capt. Vaaku for a Half Day Fishing Trip and didn’t regret. It was OUTSTANDING. Captain and the crew were great and took care of us, made us feel extremely relaxed and comfortable. Capt. Vaaku put us on fish and we didn’t stop for a second, just fishing for 4 hours. They were waiting for us at the dock 15 minutes before the trip, boat was clean and they even brought a sunscreen with them. They gave their best to provide the best experience for us and they made it! When the end was near, we moved to the best spot for fishing to make a Grand Slam and again, we made it thanks to them!

I can’t thank them enough and I highly recommend this fishing charter!
