Based out of Grande Riviere Noire, Papa Casalo is your ticket to a memorable time out on the water while in Mauritius. Captain Frederic’s main priority is to get you on some fish and ensure you have fun while angling! Kids are welcome, so take them on your Mauritius fishing adventure, too.

You’ll practice bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, popping, or spinning while hunting for Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Barracuda, or Bonito.

The catch will be shared with the crew following the trip. Please get in touch with the captain if you have any additional questions regarding the catch.

You’ll be fishing from a 28’ boat with enough room for up to 9 anglers, an ice box, and a fighting chair. All the necessary fishing gear is included in the price of your trip. No need to worry about your fishing license either, as it will be provided by the charter operator, too.

The price of your trip also includes complimentary snacks and drinks, but you’re welcome to bring your own. Please let the captain know if you have further questions or special requests.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Papa Casalo.
