Le Dodo - Marlin Tours Mauritius
One of our top picks in Trou Aux Biches. Le Dodo is a 36’ sportfishing machine, powered by twin Cummins diesel engines, with maintenance on a weekly basis. The vessel comes equipped with GPS and VHF radio, echo-sounder and emergency rockets.
As far as fishing equipment is concerned, the crew utilizes recent models of notable fishing brands, to make sure you are provided with the best service possible. The boat mainly features high-quality tackle by Penn International. Two outriggers, a single centerrigger as well as Penn downriggers can all be found on board, in mint condition.
Le Dodo is the current record holder for Blue Marlin catch in Mauritius, which stands at 1430 lbs. On the other hand, the crew enjoys running family fishing trips just as well. The Le Dodo team is headed by Jerome Douce, company leader and Le Dodo‘s captain, together with their highly skilled Mate, Bruno Rencier. Both of them will put their years of experience and fishing skills to use to ensure you have a great experience on the water.
Le Dodo’s seasoned team will do everything they can to make sure your trip is a success. The warm waters, tropical weather and premier fishing hotspots are just some of the reasons Mauritius is visited each year by traveling anglers from around the world. Some of the species you’ll have the opportunity to target include Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi and many other popular pelagics frequenting the offshore grounds.
The Big Game Fishing Boat “Le Dodo” is available at the jetty of Centre de Peche du Nord, Trou aux Biches.

The boat was very old and there excive vibrating by the engines which made us sick we are both good in rough conditions but we struggled to stand on the deck because it was vibrating that bad the kit was very old which did not matter really but my main gripe is I paid over 600 dollars and spent 3 hours troaling for tuna is that for our bennifit or the boats I booked to fish for Marlin not chasing flocks of birds for tuna. They took video and pictures I wish we had done that because that was another 60 dollars on top for a USB stick. A disappointing trip this was my third trip out in Mauritus fishing.

Everything was perfect from start to finish. After the booking confirmation Mr Scheu was very helpful to organise things in advance and in Mauritius Antoinette was great in arranging the final détails, so I was 100% prepared for the day. The fishing trip was great. The boat is no-nonsense and outfitted for fishing. The crew (Captain Jérôme, Bruno and Michael) are great: very professional and really know their stuff (in particular spotting bird activity from far away and anticipating the movements). Also very friendly and engaging; for example they were more than happy to answer my endless questions about everything they were doing. And for an off-season day the catch was superb: 5 dorados (or dolphin or mahi-mahi) within a few hours, one of which was a very hard-fighting male and 4 out of 5 more than good size.
And one little detail that I wasn’t expecting: the go-pro on board and Michael’s expert photography produced a souvenir memory stick at a more than reasonable price.
I can’t wait to return.
