We enjoyed our trip in the beautiful Maldives. We didn’t catch the fish we were hoping but we did catch some smaller fish that still made it fun. Thanks to the crew for being great!

This was my first time to Maldives, and I went for a long weekend excursion with my wife, who does not fish. So, I decided to book a half day on Alpha Royale for just my wife and I in order to test out the fishing for a possible later multi-day fishing trip to Maldives. I also had some new travel rods and reels that I wanted to put to the test. Though I was hoping to get lucky popping for GT, I realized that a single, half day trip is a very limited time and so I did not expect too much. However, despite not finding any GT, Capt. Latheef put me over some fun reef fishing for the last hour, and I caught a couple of nice grouper, as well as had a fun fight with “the one that got away” . I found the experience a lot of fun, a very informative introduction to the area, and will have no hesitation booking Alpha Royale and Capt Latheef on another visit. The crew were all friendly, and it was a great morning out on the ocean.
Looking forward to my next trip with a bit more time.

Unfortunately it was not good weather, too much wind. So we couldn’t reach good point.
