As you draw away from the unspoiled Mauritius coastline aboard a great cabin cruiser, you’ll know that you’re in fishing paradise! Horizon Fishing is a family business, and with over 50 years of experience, they’re happy to help you have an amazing time on the water.

The 42’ D’unienville cruiser boat is fitted out for deep sea fishing, with two 220 HP Cummins marine engines, full navigational systems including an echo sounder with a color monitor, and a range of safety devices. There’s a spacious deck for fantastic views of the ocean, a kitchenette with a microwave, an enclosed shower, toilet, and a spacious cabin.

You’ll use some of the best quality fishing equipment, including Fenwick rods with Penn International reels, and a Penn downrigger. There are three fighting chairs on board, so you can reel in those monster specimens. If you want to take your catch back home and prepare a delicious meal, the crew will be happy to clean and fillet the fish.

Fishing trips involve trolling with live and artificial bait for Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Shark, Tuna, Bonito, Wahoo, and Barracuda, 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.

The experienced team aboard Horizon never leaves the dock without a selection of good-quality lures and live bait to give them the best chance of attracting a bite. The crew considers every day to be a new opportunity to learn more, and they are enthusiastic about sharing this experience with you.

Don’t waste any more time, book Horizon Fishing, and have an unforgettable time fishing the Mauritian waters!

    Once you pass the reef that circles the island, you'll immediately start looking for signs of fish. There are many fish living very close to the island due to the fact that there's deep water very close to shore. In season you can even find Black Marlin in this area.

Horizon fishing is a family affair and with over 50 years of fishing experience, they’re delighted to be able to combine their two passions – fishing and family. The father and son dream to run big game charters finally came true in 1994, and the family has never looked back. They are proud to have built a solid reputation and are delighted to welcome back some of the same guests year-on-year. Every day is different on the seas and brings with it its own charms. However, the most memorable moment for the family was landing two 750+ lb Marlin in the same day!
