BuzzWinder

Join BuzzWinder and scour the seas of Maldives for trophy fish. This will be an experience you’ll never forget. Picture a bright sunny day rushing through the turquoise waters in search of an exciting catch. Captain Ismail Shifau will put you on the fish for a great outdoor adventure!

Sit back and get ready for an action-packed trip on the 21’ Offshore center console boat fired by twin 60 HP Yamaha engines. For those that understand the pure adrenalin and precision required for fishing, make use of the advanced GPS system on board. The boat can accommodate up to 5 people fishing at the same time.

There is no region that experienced captain Ismail wouldn’t be able to navigate with ease. Guests aboard this vessel are privy to not only the best kept local secret spots, but to the fine expertise of your captain. If what you’re looking for is a wide range of activities, Capt. Ismail has the know-how to maneuver your journey!

Swim along mystifying sea life on snorkeling adventures with snorkeling gear provided. Take your children on an unforgettable trip through these beautiful waters. Children aged 7 or older are welcome to come aboard, and life jackets will be provided for them.

Your adventures aboard BuzzWinder will surely result in encounters with some of the most prized fish in the world. You’ll target Long-Tail Red Snapper, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Jobfish, and Barracuda.

Rods and reels for fishing are not included in the price, so you can either bring your own or rent them from the captain for $25 per person. You don’t have to worry about fishing licenses. The first mate works for tips, and 20% is customary.

Try your luck with spearfishing, since even veteran fishermen find the thrill of spearfishing very addictive! If this is a challenge you’re up for, make sure to bring your own equipment.

Bring some sun protection, some food and drinks, and don’t waste any more time. Buckle up and get aboard the BuzzWinder for a thrilling fishing experience!
