About this listing
Alifushi Boatyard (Offshore sport fishing) originally built in 2012. Powered by 115HP Yanmar inboard offshore engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 12 knots.
Alpha Royale is a newly-built fishing and leisure boat, offering daily deep sea and bottom fishing trips from the productive Male atoll. Mohamed Latheef, the boat’s Captain, also operates the Dhebanveli Guesthouse, a well-equipped fishing lodge located on the Nilandhoo Island in the Faaf Atoll, surrounded by a variety of rich fishing grounds. Half day, full day as well as night fishing trips are made available daily aboard Alpha Royale, as are the all-inclusive fishing + lodging packages, particularly aimed at those looking for a unique fishing-centric vacation in the sunny Maldives.
The Alpha Royale is 50ft. long and has been designed with fishing techniques such as jigging, popping and trolling in mind. Made out of fiberglass and sporting a large livewell, the vessel can venture out far offshore in search of game fish such as the notorious Yellowfin Tuna. The boat features a spacious saloon, outfitted with benches and a dining table, a bathroom as well as a simple kitchen where the crew will go about preparing the lunch for your party. It can comfortably accommodate up to 8 passengers per trip. There is also a cozy sun deck located on the upper area.
Fishing-wise, Alpha Royale is rigged with a fighting chair on board, outriggers as well as a spacious livewell, and features the standard fish finding and navigational technology such as GPS and fish finder. The experienced crew utilizes 4 Penn International Tuna rods with Penn International GT 345 reels, working hard to put you on fish with all the equipment, lures and live bait provided. Among others, these waters are abundant with big game pelagics such as Sailfish, Wahoo, GT, Tuna, Snapper, Grouper and more. For overnight fishing trips, Alpha Royale also features sleeping facilities which can accommodate up to 4 anglers.

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

I booked a 6 day fishing expedition with Latheef (the owner) of Alpha Royale. As somebody who both enjoys and works in the fishing industry I’ve never caught a Giant Trevally and I sought out to fix that.
At $500 per day you can’t do any better, considering Alpha Royale is a 50ft boat with 4 crew members and an excellent guide.
We were picked up at Male International Airport by Latheef who was also nice enough to handle our domestic plane transfer to Maamigili (an island about 70mi to the south of Male).
The following 6 days (4 full and 2 half) we caught hundreds of fish, got our target species (GT), slept at 3 different guesthouses and even got a world record of a local species of grouper!
Couldn’t recommend Alpha Royale more. Be sure to book the fishing / lodging option as you can’t possibly experience all the Maldives have to offer in just a day trip.

The boat was big and clean. the crew was helpful and the 1st man understand anglers needed, after popping no fish he advise us to do trawling but still no catch. we decided to go bottom fishing and only few small fish we catch. may be during evening not good for fishing due to the weather, bait and captain. but thanks to all for the trip they try to make us happy fishing
