L’Oiseau des Iles II

Join Captain Cyril Faure as he takes you out on the waters of Rodrigues on L’oiseau des îles II for a fishing adventure! Capt. Cyril has been trained by a former world spearfishing champion, and he’s been fishing these waters for a long time, so he knows how to put you on the fish.

L’oiseau des îles II is a 53’ D’Unienville offshore sportfishing boat. It has 3 cabins, a private restroom with a shower, sink, and marine toilets. The boat features a spacious lounge and a well-equipped kitchen. It was specifically designed for offshore trips which last up to 5 days. There’s no compromise to be made here – you’ll feel right at home!

For fishing, you’ll be using Shimano and Penn rods and reels. The boat sports a single fighting chair as well as outriggers, electric downriggers, tuna tubes, and all the fishing gear is regularly maintained. You’ll fishing using live bait included in the price.

The Rodrigues island is famous for its sportfishing hotspots. Out here, the focus is on three productive fishing areas: the area around Rodrigues, East Bench, and Hawkins Bench. The crew offers both big game fishing and bottom fishing, as well as jigging, popping with live bait and more.

Some of the common pelagics frequenting the area include a variety of Billfish species, such as Marlin and Sailfish, as well as Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna. You’ll get the chance to target Giant Trevally, King Mackerel, and Red Bass as well.

Cyril is accompanied by Francis and Toc, both veteran anglers and sailors with over 15 years of fishing experience in Rodrigues. The team is flexible to customize your experience and organize your fishing trip exactly the way you’d like.

Pack, get on board L’oiseau des îles II, and explore the deep blue waters off the coast of Rodrigues for an unforgettable experience!
