It was an excellent trip, we had about 20 catches that day and the food was great.
I would strongly recommend others to take up their service.

Definately be back for more next round.

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!
