Coeur De Lion

Route Royal
Trou Aux Biches, Mauritius

Coeur De Lion was set up to share my love for fishing to the public. Having been patrolling the open Indian Ocean since the age of 15, I decided to set up to my own company to share my passion. Screaming reels is what I live for and the excitement I get from hooking up is still the same as when I first started.

For me, client satisfaction is at the forefront of everything I do. That is why I, as owner and captain of the boat, make it a priority to attend and participate in every fishing trip. My 2 man crew also share the same passion and expertise in catching fish. Unlike other boats, I make it a must to ensure that the client actually enjoys the thrill that is big game fishing and hooking up monsters. As I am the owner, I never hesitate to extend the fishing trips “free of charge”, especially if the fish are active or if fishing has been quiet. My aim for every fishing trip is that the client feels at ease, enjoys the day and, of course, catches their dream fish.

The boat, a locally built 30 foot offshore vessel, was designed for the Indian Ocean’s waters. Its distinctive shape increases its stability and ability to ride waves smoothly, and the twin Yamaha 80 HP engines allow quick access to fishing grounds. Equipped with a fighting chair, outriggers, and centre rigger, along with a GPS and fish finder, it maximises the chances of catching fish. Whether it is light trolling around FADs or heavy offshore trolling, you will be supplied with a range of Shimano Tiagra reels and rods, as well as an extensive array of different lures, from soft plastics to Islanders.

I sincerely hope to see you on your next trip.

Tight Lines,

Capt Kevin Marie Jeanne.

About the Charter Operator

Coeur De Lion

Member since September 2016
Born in a fishing dynasty, fishing has always been present in my life. Having left school at the tender age of 16, I decided to focus fully on fishing to follow my father's steps. To help me achieve this, I decided to enroll in a local fishing course to become a registered fisherman on the island. This course allowed me to obtain not only a fishing licence but also a live bait licence for FAD fishing. At the same time, this has also allowed me to gain more expertise and know the numerous techniques of fishing. The reason why I chose to become a fisherman is to share my passion with others. Seeing the enjoyment of a beginner or an experienced angler hooking up gives me as much excitement as them. I have always adopted this hands-on approach as I am always present on all my fishing trips. I like to ensure that all my clients are always fully satisfied and maximize their chances of catching and to allow this, my presence is key. For me, fishing is not a passion. It is a way of life.

Excellent communication from the instant that I booked my trip ex Cape Town South Africa. Having searched “Best fishing days” Mauritius I requested a trip date change from Tues 26/09 & was accomodated on Sunday 24/09 rated as a level 3 fishing day. (Level 4 is BEST & level 1 “worst case scenario”) Collection from hotel was suggested for 05h00 instead of 07h00 which I readily accepted as it meant arriving at our fishing point just after sunrise, giving the best possible chance of a catch. Cour de Lion’ 2 man crew: Michael & Jonathan are extremely helpful, knowledgeable & had a phenomenal work ethic. By 10h00 we had landed 9 Dorados varying from 6 >11kgs, I had my “BEST FISHING DAY” a Mauritian experience that I will treasure forever. To Capt Kevin & crew “THANK YOU” team for your passion & a FV that is visibly top class & well maintained. Highly recommend booking this FV - Dennis Parsons South Africa

Thank you so much Mr Dennis for those kind words. It was a pleasure for myself capt Kevin and the crew to have you on board for one of the half day trips. We fully enjoyed your company and we probably had as much fun as you did with those dorados.
P.S next time you have a beer, think about us.
Kind regards,
Capt kevin and the crew.

This was a Fantastic day’s fishing I could not have asked for a better skipper on a boat. I have fished all over the world and this was the best all round fishing trip I have ever experienced. We set out at six in the morning and it took us over 1hr to get out to the fishing ground, we started using frozen Flying Fish as bait and we hooked up within 5 minutes a double hooker then we used live bait and the fish just went crazy for the bait we lost quite a few fish and shark took some but for the conditions of the sea we had a very good day out. I can’t thank the Captain and his crew for any more they did a great job !!! I will be using the Coeur De Lion again when I come back next year many thanks Dave.

Hello Mr David,
Hope you are well. We are delighted that you had a great trip. To hear you say that this was one of the best fishing trips you experienced worldwide really means a lot to us. This is what we always strive for and hearing this brings us joy. Our secret weapon did work that day with some nice sized dorados caught.
We absolutely hope to see you again and it would be an absolute pleasure to see you again and hopefully this time go for the big one.
Kind Regards,
Capt kevin and the crew.
