Hooker 1

Colonel Dean Ave
Grande Riviere Noire, Mauritius

Come aboard Hooker 1 and discover why Mauritius is considered one of the region’s best hotspots for big game fishing. Capt. Jean-Pierre has more than 20 years of sport fishing experience. He and his crew are dedicated to helping you land a memorable catch, whether fishing by day or at night. Join them for a chance to reel in your next biggest catch!

Hooker 1 is a 38’ Speville Craft powered by twin 265 HP Perkins Sabre engines. This vessel is fitted for nothing less than the best of big game fishing, featuring a flybridge, GPS, fishfinder, and three fighting chairs. Penn and Shimano fishing gear are provided for you, including a range of 20 to 130 lb test line. There is room on board for up to seven passengers, and children of all ages are welcome.

While fishing aboard Hooker 1, you can target a wide variety of big game species. Capt. Jean-Pierre and his crew are prepared to help you reel in the biggest of them, from Marlin and Giant Trevally to several different kinds of Tuna. Depending on the species, you may target your catch by jigging, trolling, or popping. Lures are provided and you will catch live bait during your trip.

You can also join Capt. Jean-Pierre for night fishing, casting lines between sunset and sunrise the next morning. This overnight trip gives you a chance to bottom fish the reefs for Snapper, Grouper, Dogtooth Tuna, Trevally, and even sharks.

Captain Jean-Pierre and the crew of Hooker 1 provide everything you need for a successful day (or night) on the water. A fishing license, gear, and drinks are included in your trip package. You may request to take a fish home with you to enjoy for dinner.

Book your next trip and experience the renowned big game fishing of Mauritius for yourself!
