About the Charter Operator

Permal Nimalen
Grand Baie, Mauritius
Member since May 2014
Born into a fisherman family with over 50 years of experience, Nimalen used to accompany his father, a fisherman, as he went fishing in a wooden canoe. After years of being hard at work, they purchased their first engine boat in 1984. It went off from there and in 2000, Nimalen started his own big game fishing business. After catering to a variety of satisfied clients, he was able to buy his first boat - Le Performant 1. Demand kept rising, and along came Le Performant 2, 3 and 4!

We recommend that all tourist take note that LE PERFORMANT are the ruest peope we had to incounter in Mauritius. Not only we have to pay for fishing trip but they also refused to give use the fish we caught.  This we call theft in South Africa. They lady who was there to meet use was so rude and disrespectfull. When insisting that they give use the fish the Le performant operator (lady) repleid and said we can BUY the fish back!!

We reported this company to the Maurition tourist board’, and wrote reports on their facebook and our local tourist website warning people to not make use of them.

They give Mauritians a bad nme and we will make sure that ll South African touist are well informed about their terrible service and disrespect towards tourist.

Hello Jan, thank you for your review. We are no theft, and you can try to put our company to shame, but we are professionals and we try our best to inform our clients as much as we can. Whether it is on Fishing booker under the policies section, or on our blog http://www.leperformant.com/blog we clearly define that Crew keeps catch.

We are sorry if you missed that piece of information which led to a bad experience both for you and us. Anglers from all over the world trust our company for fishing in Mauritius year in year out. We do our best to please each and every person who step on one of our boats. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case with you, and we would like to hear from you on how we can improve, maybe on the communication level with our clients.

Thank you
