Vacances Aventures Ltd - 38 ft

Discover for yourself why Mauritius is known as one of the best game fishing destinations in the world with Vacances Adventures. This professional sportfishing company caters to professional fishermen as well as beginners, many of whom have caught their first ever Marlin with the company.

The “Hooker V” is a 38 ft boat from the renowned local manufacturer D’Unienville. Powered by twin engines for efficiency and reliability, the boat is a Marlin fishing machine. It features navigational electronics, including a Garmin GPS and a VHF radio, and has a fighting chair for those big game battles. There is also a toilet and a kitchen on board so you can feel at home on the water.

Top of the line fishing gear is carried on board the boat to help you hook your trophy catch. Vacances Adventures carry Penn International reels ranging from 50 - 130 lbs, and there is always a choice of different artificial lures on board the boat. With this gear to hand, you will be in a good position to fight a Blue or Black Marlin, a Sailfish, Shark, or a Mahi Mahi.

Trip prices include the use of Vacances Adventures’ rods and reels, and the company also provides drinks free of charge.
