Fish Whisperer Ltd - Extasea

Colonel Dean Avenue
Grande Riviere Noire, Mauritius

Experience Mauritius’ famous deep sea fishing opportunities aboard ‘Extasea’, the larger of Fish Whisperer Ltd Mauritius’ two boats. Enjoy a half or full day trip targeting Marlin and Tuna with experienced and enthusiastic guides who two years ago left their high flying careers in banking and accountancy to focus on what they have been most passionate about all their lives: fishing.

Extasea is a 22 ft boat that was built locally in 2012. The well-equipped craft features two 115 HP Yamaha Four Stroke engines and has everything you need for sport fishing for game fish. With a cabin, canopy and fresh water shower all on board, your trip will be comfortable as well as productive. The boat is equipped with seven Penn International rods, as well as two jigging rods and a large variety of lures for trolling and jigging, all of which you can use while on your fishing charter.

You will be able to use the tried and tested fishing techniques that have been producing large fish around Mauritius for years. These include trolling silicone and plastic lures from 3 to 9 knots, jigging lures weighing 200-300 grams, casting poppers and trolling with fresh bait. The precise technique you use will depend on the season and the species of fish you are targeting.

What about the fish that is caught on your charter? The company’s rule is that the fish remains the property of the boat, but they offer two fish weighing up to 10 kg collectively to their guests. When fishing for Marlin, Fish Whisperer Mauritius recommends catch and release, which is part of their ethic.

So here it is, ladies and gents: come and join Ian and Michael in Mauritius for a nice fishing trip! Cheers.

    In this package we will be able to bring you Fishing our 2 best Fishes: the Yellow Fin Tuna and the Marlin. We will go for a 6 hours trip, with 3 hours of Marlin Fishing and 3 hours of Tuna Fishing. It is very interesting as the 2 types of Fishing are completely different (Lures, Lines, Technics, Hooks). When we do not have bookings, we are Fishing for us and selling the catches to restaurents, individuels. It helps us a lot cause we know where is the Fish and on what lures they are eating better.
