Description

As you draw away from the spectacular, unspoiled Mauritius coastline aboard a superb and newly restored cabin cruiser you will know you are in fishing paradise. The volcanic island is surrounded by a steep drop in the continental shelf, meaning deep sea fishing in the Indian Ocean is extremely accessible, and even a short trip can put you in a spot to catch the fish of a lifetime.

Capt. Nicholas’ 42’ D’unienville is fitted out extensively for deep sea fishing, with three fighting chairs, two 220HP Cummins marine engines, full navigational systems including an echo sounder with a color monitor, as well as a range of safety devices including 22 lifejackets, life buoys, automatic bilge pumps and a fire extinguisher. Conditions aboard are superb, with a spacious fly deck that gives fantastic views of the surrounding ocean, a kitchenette with a microwave, an enclosed shower and toilet and a spacious cabin.

On board you will find some of the best quality fishing equipment available, including 9 Fenwick fishing rods with Penn International reels (30 lbs, 50 lbs and 80 lbs) and a Penn downrigger. Fishing trips mainly involve trolling with a variety of live and artificial bait for Black and Blue Marlins, Dorados, Sharks, Tunas, Bonitos, Wahoos, Barracudas and more, depending on the season. The biggest fish tend to be around in the warmer season from November to April, making this a great place to get some winter sun and go fishing, although there are a variety of great species around all year round.

The experienced team aboard Horizon never leaves the dock without a selection of different, good-quality lures and live bait to give them the best chance of attracting a bite. While the charter company has been operating for 8 years and is manned by very experienced captains, they consider every day fishing to be a new opportunity to learn more, and they are enthusiastic about sharing this experience with you.

Very nice trip on Horizon. Got alot of Bonitos but a Marlin just played with the lure, instead of biting. Anoying.

Thank you Horizon
We departed right on time, Nicolas (the owner) Dede and Simon (the skippers) had well prepared the boat, the fishing equipment was all in place and ready to use, when we boarded Horizon.  The sea was quite rough, but the crew’s professionalism made us feel safe at all times.  We were soon rewarded when we entered the area where a few birds were busy flying and diving, we caught 3 Dorados of 19 lbs each.  Not even 30 minutes later, another bird display invited us to 3 big bonitos.  Dede and Simon kept searching for fish, really wanting to increase our catches for the day.  We caught a Dorado of 28 lbs, 2 more big Bonitos and a Baracuda.
Thank you Nicolas for an excellent fishing day, we believe that you have picked the best skippers available in Mauritius.  Apart from their professionalism, they are very pleasant and even find time to serve us with drinking water and cool drinks.  Horizon is in excellent condition, we look forward to our next fishing trip, which will naturally be on board Horizon.

Horizon big game fish is fantastic I first went fishing 5years ago on this boat and every year since I have returned to Mauritius to go fishing on Horizon the team is brilliant they never stop looking for the fish and go out of there way for customers to have a great big game fishing experience, I have been out in this vessel in good weather and bad and have all ways felt safe. Even took my 80year old mum and dad out fishing, who both had an amazing day. If anybody is in Mauritius and wants to go big game fish Horizon and its team will provide I great fishing experience.
