Mariaboat Charters

Do you want to experience the ultimate local-style fishing adventure in beautiful La Morne, Mauritius? Come aboard Mariaboat Charters and join Captain Labonne Jeanluc for the chance to reel in a huge host of world-famous saltwater superstars, as well as taking in some stunning scenery and seeing how the locals live on this beautiful island!

Capt. Labonne is a native Mauritian who’s been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod. If you love a little bit of local flair and history alongside your angling action, then he’s just the captain for you – he started working on his dad’s boat when he was young, and now uses that very same boat to run a variety of fishing trips! His specialty is big game, so if you want to battle huge Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and more, then you’ll be in safe hands – no matter your age or skill level.

You’ll be fishing from your captain’s 25’ Nabridas deck boat, built to accommodate up to 4 guests, and transport you to the hotspots in safety and comfort. She’s decked out with top-notch navigational gear, life jackets, and snorkeling equipment for guests who want to explore these waters from a whole other angle. For hardcore fishermen, there are outriggers to maximize your trolling potential, and a fighting chair – perfect for battling your dream Mahi Mahi or Sailfish!

Capt. Labonne offers his guests a huge variety of fishing options, so you’ll find a technique that fits you perfectly. You’ll have the chance to fish with light tackle for Barracuda, Skipjack, and small Yellowfin Tuna  – this will provide plenty of hands-on action! Try heavier tackle, and get ready to reel in huge Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, mighty Marlin, and more. You can also test your bottom fishing skills against a variety of Grouper, Triggerfish, and local fish.

Your trip includes top-quality rods and reels, bait, and tackle. All you need to bring is some sunscreen, and get ready for a local-stye adventure with Mariaboat Charters!

"I started fishing with my dad in 1987. I was 5 years old when l caught my first fish, which was a Grouper. One year later, I caught my first Skipjack Tuna, and my passion for fishing started from there!" Capt. Labonne is a lifelong fishing fanatic. As well as fishing for leisure during his childhood, he also worked on many boats, including his father's. In fact, the boat that he now uses to run his charter is his dad's boat! He loves meeting new people and fishing with them, and also loves the sound of the reels when the fish has been caught. Fishing is his life and his passion, especially big game fishing – come aboard and let him show you just what these waters have to offer!
