Qatar Fishing Trip

If you’re looking for a unique fishing adventure on the Persian Gulf, then Qatar Fishing Trip might be the perfect fit for your preferences! Ismael Alansari and his crew have spent the last 10 years organizing fishing charters from their beach camp and it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing.

Ismael is the owner of the business, and his captain is a local who spent most of his life fishing these waters, so he’ll know exactly where to go to take you to the best bite. You can choose between a half day, full day, or overnight trip, depending on how much time you want to dedicate to fishing.

You’ll be targeting the most popular species of the area like Queenfish, King Mackerel, Goliath Grouper, Red Emperor Snapper, and more. Bluefin Tuna is also in the cards on full day trips.

If you’d like to spend the night in the camp, Ismael will organize spacious traditional tents for you to sleep in. All the delicious food, drinks, fishing equipment, boat, and lodging are included in the price.

The beach camp is beautiful and away from the bustle of the crowds, so you can relax, swim, walk around, or even play volleyball and soccer if you’d like. The boat takes off right from the beach, so everything is at your fingertips.

Speaking of your boat, you’ll be casting your line out of an 18’ Hatteras sport fisher a 180 HP Yamaha engine. Offshore fishing is the name of the game and you’ll go about 3 miles from the shore to chase your prey. Your captain will provide all the tackle, and there will be a first mate on board to help with whatever you need.

You can come with your family or friends, or both, and Ismael will make sure you have a good time in their camp. With Qatar Fishing Trip, memorable fishing times are but one cast away!
