BlackRiver Charters

If you’d like to explore the waters off the coast of Mauritius, join BlackRiver Charters. The family business with over 25 years of experience will take you on a fishing adventure of a lifetime! Captain Dominique is a very experienced angler, and he’ll take you on a great journey.

Explore these fish-rich grounds on the spacious 42’ D’Unienville convertible boat, with all the comfort you need. It has a flybridge for your convenience, as well as a toilet, shower, and a bed. The boat can accommodate up to 8 people, 3 of which can bottom fish at the same time. There’s one fighting chair, so you’ll take turns.

Capt. Dominique will provide all the fishing equipment – Penn and Shimano rods and reels, as well as live bait. The first mate joins in on all trips, and tips are appreciated. The crew keeps the catch, but you can take some fish if you’d like to try the fruits of your labor for dinner. They will be happy to clean it for you.

In the summer, you’ll target Marlin, while winter is reserved for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, and Shark. On the half day trips, you’ll do some trolling, while on the full day ones you can either troll or catch Bonito to use it as bait for bigger fish.

On the night trips, you’ll target Swordfish since there’s enough time to go much deeper. If you’re an experienced angler, this is a great adventure! These waters drop very close to the shore, so you’ll be on the fish instantly.

Water and soft drinks will be provided for you, and the crew can arrange lunch at an additional cost. Make sure to bring sun protection, cameras, and your own beer if you’re up for it. Kids older than 5 are welcome, and there are life jackets for them, so come make some great family memories!

Born from a man’s passion for the sea, BlackRiver Charters is a family business that started its adventure over twenty years ago with the acquisition of our first fishing boat "Les Copains d’a Bord" in 1992. The company initially specialized in big game fishing and won the Marlin World Cup twice in 2008 and 2009 under the team name "Les Copains d’a Bord". Over the years, the company started to diversify its activities to meet the growing requirements of the Mauritian tourism market. Nurtured by the values on which the company has been created, namely dedication, entrepreneurship, friendliness, and integrity, Hervé de Baize, the founder, with the help of his sons, has successfully led his boat to port. With undisputed know-how, unquestionably, a must in matter of excursions when visiting the Mauritian western coast.
