Zighy Bay Sport Fishing

Zighy Bay Marina
Musandam Governorate, Oman

Zighy Bay Sport Fishing is an adventure providing charter that was established for fun and pleasure of its captains and their guest. They will take you out the pristine salt waters of Oman, and show you the incredible beauty this region has to offer in the Musandam Peninsula. The rocky mountains, the clear blue water, the white sandy beaches and the incredible diversity of fish species make this a very desirable destination. The crew of Zighy Bay Sport Fishing will make sure you have an adventure of a lifetime catching some big species and enjoying a fun day on the water.

You will fish aboard their 35 foot Al Marakeb center console boat which was built in 2016, and has a capacity for 5 people. It is powered by two 250 HP Yamaha engines with a maximum cruising speed of 50 knots. This boat has all the latest electronics such as a GPS, a VHF radio, a radar and an excellent fishfinder which will help you locate the best fishing spots. You will also make good use of the icebox to store your catch until you return to the shore, as well as a wireless trolling motor which will make the boat very quiet in order not to spook the fish. There is also all the necessary safety equipment in form of life jackets, flares and a first-aid kit. The boat is also has a toilet and a shower which come in very handy if you plan to swim with the fish a little.

Zighy Bay Sport Fishing fishes the Musandam Peninsula in the Gulf of Oman which is incredibly rich in Trevally species - from Giant to Golden, you can catch a load of them any day. You will also have the opportunity to fish for Striped Marlin, Sailfish, Amberjack, Great Barracudas, King Mackerel, Broomtail Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Queenfish, Yellowfin and Longtail Tuna among other species. The crew of the boat will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, and will also serve soda-water on board. Bring some protective clothing, towels, sunscreen, sunglasses and a wide smile, as you are in for an adventure.

Zighy Bay Sport Fishing is captained by Captain Robert Taylor who hails from South Africa. He has been in the Middle East as a charter captain for 3 years, and has worked in Fujairah for 2 years where he fell in love with trolling and light tackle fishing. His personal favorite fish is the Sailfish with all its power and acrobatics and beauty. The best part about catching them is seeing them swim off after a release. His motto is "For the love of fishing".
