Laamu Atol Sportfishing

Laamu Atol Sportfishing is a reputable charter in the Maldives. Each trip they make is unique, as it is customized per their guest’s wishes. Simply say what you need and they will do their best to make it happen. Captain Ibrahim has been fishing his whole life and professionally guided fishing trips for 15 years. He learned from one of the best anglers in the Maldives, his father, who taught him all the tricks of the business.

Hop aboard a brand new 34’ custom built center console. She’s built in 2019, equipped with the latest Garmin navigational gear, and powered by twin 200 HP Yamaha engines. As she’s able to reach a maximum speed of 45 knots, you’ll have your lines in the water very fast. Less traveling time means more fishing time! The new hull makes the boat stable even at great speeds or rough water.

Snorkeling equipment is also available at all times, so take a dive if you need a break from fishing. Check with the captain in advance to see if spearfishing equipment is available.

Capt. Ibrahim is a specialist in popping, jigging, and trolling, so these are the techniques he’ll teach you. Depending on how far out you go, you’ll be able to catch Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Giant Trevally, Tuna, Yellowtail, and many more. All fish are “catch and release” only.

The captain provides all necessary fishing equipment, snacks, and drinks. Full day trips also include lunch. The cost for live bait, if you want to use it, is $50.

Laamu Atol Sportfishing has a crew that’s always there to support you and make sure you have a great day on the water. They have one simple suggestion for their guests: Don’t look to the rest if you can get the best!

About the Captain

Ibrahim has been a captain for 15 years. He’s a local and knows the Maldives inside out. His papa is one of the best fishermen in the Maldives, so ever since he was little, Capt. Ibrahim was around boats, water, and fishing. He started going out on fishing trips when he was 13. The best part of the job is the feel of the ocean breeze after a successful day of fishing. The captain is young, motivated and speaks good English.
