Horizon Fishing

Sunset Boulevard Grand Bay Ma…
Grand Baie, Mauritius

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 Fenwick fishing rods with Penn International reels (50 lbs, 80 lbs and 130 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.

A full days fishing with the horizon fishing company.  Nick had comminucated with me over many months and at all times was clear and timely. Sam and didi on the day were well organised and they managed the day professionally. Knowing when to change tackle and type of kit to give us the best opportunity to deliver the catch.
We hooked into 17 tuna and they gave us some fun but by changing some of the smaller lures we targeted bigger fish, no marlin but we hooked into and landed two massive wahoo 40 kg plus which delivered a great fight. Bit early for marlin for those in the know .
Many thanks to nick and Sam and didi I would recommend them having fished all over the world I felt they were very professional, knowledgeable and value for money. Don’t wait book now

We booked the full day trip for a boys day out for a family wedding visit - sadly we caught nothing as it turned out to be very quiet day for all the boats. But we had a great day out and Robert and Dede worked hard to find the elusive fish and prepared a nice barbecue lunch in a bay on one the islands. The booking and pick up worked well with Nicholas with SMS and email updates. Thanks guys
