Island Blue Boat Charters

Island Blue Boat Charters is here to help you experience the stunning waters of Abu Dhabi.

Species like Barracuda, Hamour Grouper, Kingfish, GT, Queenfish, Spangled Emperor, and more inhabit these waters if conditions are right. You can expect to do some light tackle fishing, trolling, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

Looking to get the whole family outdoors? Kids are absolutely welcome! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available, otherwise, you should bring your own. Also, remember to bring snacks so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty stomach!

You’ll be dropping lines from a 30’ Gulf center console with a capacity for 6 passengers. It has all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. Your captain will provide rods and reels.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, so all you have to do is look forward to your trip! Keep in mind that some fish may have harvest limits or closed seasons. Simply ask and your captain can tell you more. Don’t forget to bring sunglasses, and sunscreen (non-spray). There will be bottled water on offer, but let the captain know if you wish to bring your own drinks. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but try to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Give yourself something to look forward to and book a trip with Island Blue Boat Charters!
