Horizon Fishing

(52) In demand!

As you draw away from the spectacular, unspoiled Mauritius coastline aboard a superb and newly restored cabin cruiser you’ll know that you’re 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.

The 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, and a range of safety devices. Conditions aboard are superb, with a spacious fly deck giving fantastic views of the surrounding ocean, a kitchenette with a microwave, an enclosed shower, toilet, and a spacious cabin.

Onboard you’ll find some of the best quality fishing equipment, including Fenwick rods with Penn International reels (50 lb, 80 lb, and 130 lb) and a Penn downrigger. Fishing trips involve trolling with live and artificial bait for Marlin, Dorado, Sharks, Tuna, Bonito, Wahoo, Barracuda, 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.

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 everyday fishing to be a new opportunity to learn more, and they are enthusiastic about sharing this experience with you.

    Fish from 7 am to 12 pm, before anchoring by the beautiful Coin de Mire island, considered to be the best snorkeling site in Mauritius. Snorkel in the crystal clear waters with the local reef fish, have a delicious barbecue lunch and then get back to the Grand Bay at 4 pm. How does that sound for an itinerary?

    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. Travel up to 15-10 miles offshore, targeting game fish including Blue and Black Marlin, Mahi-mahi, Wahoo, Bonito and Tuna, depending on the season.

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!
