Cobia Tours

Cobia Tours welcomes you to the Maldives, a world-renowned fishing destination that offers not only exotic natural sights but also fish-rich grounds with plenty to catch. You’ll start out from the capital of Malé and embark on inshore, nearshore, as well as offshore to search for a great catch. Your captain will share his knowledge with you and help you have a trip worth remembering.

You’ll fish from a spacious restored 50’ classic boat that can sit up to 15 guests. It runs on a 115 HP Yanmar engine and uses modern GPS and radio technology for efficient navigation. The boat’s facilities include a flybridge, kitchen, toilet, shower, and bed, and it also features a multimedia system, an ice-box, and spearfishing and snorkeling gear. In case you need any help, feel free to ask the first mate and he’ll do everything he can to make your trip as comfortable as possible.

You’ll be chasing various prized species on your trip, some of them being Goliath Grouper, Green Jobfish, Trevally, Red Emperor Snapper, and Rainbow Runner. The captain makes it possible for you to use many fishing techniques, meaning you can bottom and sea fish, troll, spin, jig, pop, and even handline and spearfish. You’re free to keep all the fish you catch if you want and you can bring kids on your trip.

For the trip, you should bring your rods, reels, tackle, bait, and some snacks and drinks. The captain will clean and fillet your catch at no extra charge.

Come to the Maldives and have a true fishing adventure with Cobia Tours!
