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.

The day was a great trip - having never been deep sea fishing before I was a bit unsure of what to expect but the crew were excellent at setting up and assisting us to catch 8 skip jack tuna. The snorkelling and BBQ were a great way to round off the day. Thanks!
