Fish Hunter

Picture this: you’re cruising beautiful waters under the magical starlit Maldivian sky, rod in hand, with a wealth of world-famous fish swimming beneath you. Or you’re basking under the sun, taking in some incredible scenery as you cast your line for some tasty table fare. Sounds like a dream vacation? Hop aboard Fish Hunter charters in Male, and it could soon be a reality!

Captain Abdulla Hameed is just the guide to show you around these prolific fishing grounds. He’s a lifelong angling aficionado who decided to merge business and pleasure by starting up his very own charter company. He uses his years of knowledge to run exciting, traditional Maldivian-style fishing adventures on these waters.

You’ll be casting off on board your captain’s 20’ custom-built walkaround vessel. She was built for fishing in the Maldives, and can easily tackle every type of fishing ground, from inshore to offshore waters. She can accommodate up to 6 guests – with children age 5 and above welcome on board, why not make this a family vacation to remember?

Your vessel is decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, and has plenty of room for the variety of fishing gear your captain has – from handlining equipment to traditional casting rods to light and heavy tackle, everything is on offer! It’s also possible to indulge in a spot of snorkeling on your trip, with snorkeling gear available in a variety of sizes, so just let your captain know.

If you’d like to really fish like the locals do, handlining has to be your chosen technique. Depending on the trip you opt for, you’ll get to throw out your line either under the cover of darkness or during the daytime. Your target species include Red Emperor Snapper, Ehu, and even mighty Bluefin Tuna. If you opt for a more conventional technique, Trevally and Grouper species lie in wait, too.

Your captain will provide you with a fishing license. Come aboard Fish Hunter charters for a truly traditional Maldivian adventure!
