Captain Hook’s – Calipso

Get ready for a true Bay of Bengal welcome aboard Captain Hook’s Calipso, as you explore the rich waters of the Indian Ocean in search of monster fish. There’s no commercial fishing in the productive waters around Havelock Island, so you’ll have it all to yourself. Come aboard and put your skills to the test to land the fish of your dreams.

Captain Qutub Taher will personally make sure that you have everything you need for a fun-filled day out. He moved to the island from Bangalore to work in the fishing industry, before falling in love with sportfishing. He started his own charter company to make sure that others can have the same experience as him and promises to do everything he can to make sure you have a holiday to remember.

The Calipso is a 35’ Yamaha center console. She was built in Dubai, specifically for fishing the range of waters on offer in the Indian Ocean. Up to 4 guests are welcome aboard the spacious vessel to make yourselves at home, while the crew will take care of your every need. Take advantage of the free drinks and a full lunch to stay refreshed, while also engaging in some thrilling fishing.

You’ll spend your time popping, jigging, and live baiting for a long list of exciting fish. Get ready for a serious battle as the monster fish here promise to do whatever they can to get off the end of your line. Prepare to be blown away by Giant and Bluefin Trevallies, Yellowfin, Dogtooth, and Skipjack Tuna, along with Bonito, Groupers, Snappers, Jacks, Barracuda, Wahoo, and much more.

Everything you need for a productive day out awaits you on board, but feel free to bring your own fishing gear. If you want to discover the waters up close and personal, you’ll also have the chance to go snorkeling too. All Capt. Qutub asks is that you swing by Captain Hook’s Activity Center a day before to finalize your trip details.

The range of fishing in Havelock Island will leave you mindblown. Come aboard Captain Hook’s Calipso and see for yourself!

I came to the Andaman Islands from Bangalore to work for a Grouper fish export company, and just fell in love with the Islands. I found sportfishing to be much more satisfying than the company work, and decided to start a charter for sportfishing called Captain Hook's Sportfishing! My wife and I work together to ensure that our charter is operated as a fishing enthusiast's outfit rather then a business – this allows our passion to shine through. We also operate a fishing lodge at the sea shore on Havelock Island, where we are based. Come aboard and get ready to explore these waters with us. Tight lines!
