Maamudaa

Join Maamudaa charters for a perfect vacation day! Located in Faresmaathodaa, they run fishing trips year round and you can find them at the marina every day except Friday. Your guides on this adventure will be Captain Mohammed and Ahmed. They are experienced local anglers and there’s not a good fishing spot these guys haven’t discovered yet.

You’ll be fishing on a custom 20’ boat that accommodates up to three guests. There’s enough room for everyone to fish at the same time, so you don’t have to wait for your turn. To speed things up, the boat is powered by a 100 HP Yamaha engine, that can reach the speed up to 32 knots. The boat features GPS, fishfinder, and a cooler.

The main fishing techniques that will get you fish are popping, jigging, and trolling. Which one works best? Well, that depends on what you want to catch. You’ll have a chance to go after Giant Trevally, Grouper, Snapper, and Amberjack. Go up to 6 miles offshore and you may land Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Barracuda, and Wahoo.

The captain will provide you with Shimano, Penn, and Daiwa fishing equipment and bait. There’s fresh water on the boat but feel free to bring other beverages and snacks of your choice. Kids age 3 and up are welcome and life vests for them are provided.

Explore the Maldives as never before and take a trip with Maamudaa!
