Aquila Fishing Mauritius

The team behind Aquila Fishing Mauritius started out in the big game fishing business all the way back in 1970. To date, they’ve owned 6 boats, with the “Aquila” being the company’s last upgrade. This family enterprise was born from the shared passion for fishing between a father and his son.

“Aquila” is a 53’ D’Unienville cruiser, designed and built in Mauritius. She can accommodate up to 8 anglers, and you’ll all be able to fish at the same time. This luxurious vessel is outfitted with 3 cabins and a private bathroom. The vessel has a full array of electronics and safety equipment, including EPIRB to keep you safe even in the most remote waters offshore. Onboard, you’ll also find life jackets for all ages, so bring the kids along!

The Aquila team uses Shimano Tiagra rods, matched with 7 Tiagra reels in a variety of weight ranges. You have a wide mix of big game lures available, as well as the option to troll live bait such as Bonito. The Aquila team knows that only the best can cut it against seriously big game pelagics like the mighty Blue Marlin. You’ll also have the chance to battle other hard-fighting species – get ready to come face-to-gills with Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and more.

For over 60 years, the family has been out on the water almost every day, fishing all over the Mauritian coast. Aquila’s Skipper, Berty, has over 30 years of experience in Mauritius, which he uses to guide his guests to his favorite sweet spots for their targeted species. His Mate, Eddy, comes from a local fishing village and is also a deep sea veteran.

Aquila Fishing Mauritius balances sumptuous luxury with world-class angling to give you nothing short of the ultimate Mauritian fishing experience. Spend the day on a 5-star vessel with one of the best crews in the country and get offshore to catch the oceans’ top predators!
