The Maldivian waters provide vacationing anglers with a rich and bountiful environment for an exciting big game fishing experience. Silver Marlin combines the local knowledge and fishing expertise of its Maldivian captain with a luxury sportfishing vessel, rigged with high-quality gear and fishing equipment, in order to provide its guests with a unique fishing experience not many places can rival. Weather permitting, the Silver Marlin veteran crew are indeed dedicated to guiding you through a memorable big game fishing adventure you won’t soon forget.

The Silver Marlin is a 40ft (12.5 meter) long fishing vessel, powered by Twin Cummins B330 engines with the maximum passenger capacity of 8 anglers per trip. The boat is fully rigged with the casting as well as trolling equipment that you’ll need to tackle some of the most popular big game species frequenting the offshore waters of Male - the capital and fishing central of the Maldives.

Silver Marlin features an entirely air-conditioned inside complete with a double bed as well as both indoor and outdoor lounges. Among other amenities, the boat has a toilet on board (enclosed vacuflush), a fridge and a stove. It sports an array of modern navigational equipment, such as GPS, radio and fishfinder, as well as both outriggers and a fighting chair, to maximize your chances of catching a big one during the trip.

The Silver Marlin crew specializes in a variety of fishing techniques, including big game and bottom fishing, jigging, popping, light tackle and even fly fishing. Some of the species that are commonly targeted on big game fishing trips include Billfish (particularly Marlin and Sailfish), Wahoo, Giant Trevallys, Yellowfin Tuna, Bonito and many others, depending on the weather as well as the time of year. Based on your preferences and the species you’d like to go after, the Captain will provide you with an appropriate fishing gear, complete with both live and artificial bait. Snacks and beverages are included.

Boat nice and well equipped.  Captain and crew very good and worked hard. Unfortunately, not a single strike all day but that’s fishing.  Suspect we just weren’t very lucky.  Boat did have stronger than typical smell of diesel but just finished an engine overhaul the day before our booking and suspect that some diesel was spilled in the process.  They were very responsive to email communication and were accommodating by picking us up at airport ( in the boat) and delivering us back to the hotel.

Boat and crew were fantastic, but you put me on the wrong boat, I requested a GT popper sport fishing trip. Instead you put me on a trawling boat. The skipper took me to a spot to cast for GT’s but there were only 3 casting rods available. 1 was a 13 foot beach rod, ridiculous ! The second had a broken real and was a short boat rod, the third was another short boat rod with half a spool of line. After about 30 cast my arm was about to drop off as the equipment was completely wrong for this style of fishing. After seeing this was a complete waste of time I asked the captain if we can just go and troll lures as I could see this is what the boat and equipment was designed for. We caught a nice yellow fin tuna which was a relief , but I didn’t go there to catch yellow fin. $2500au to catch a tuna that I could of caught on any boat at home, I specifically requested on numurous times to target GT’s and I wanted to be placed on a GT boat that had experience with catching GT’s.

I travell frequently and I do not think I will use this service again. I sent so many emails in regards to the type of fishing I wanted to do and couldn’t specify it anymore than I did. Happy with the crew as they were very nice people but disappointed with the boat selection you booked for me.
