Visit the productive fishing grounds around the beautiful island of Mauritius with Maranatha Sport Fishing! Captain Antonio Lamarque and his crew are all passionate anglers with years of experience under their belt. They’ll make sure to maximize your time on the water, so you’re bound to have a successful trip.

Explore these waters on Maranatha – a 40’ Berger offshore sportfishing boat restored in 2020. It’s powered by twin 160 HP Yanmar engines, and it’s a safe, fast, and comfortable ride to the fishing grounds. Maranatha has access to fresh water, as well as a private restroom. The boat can comfortably fit up to 8 people, so take your friends and family on a fishing expedition!

Capt. Antonio will provide all the fishing gear that you’ll need – Penn International rods and reels, as well as a range of big game lures and live bait. A fighting chair, outriggers, downriggers, and a center rigger, as well as snorkeling equipment, can also be found among the boat’s amenities.

The offshore grounds off the Mauritian coast are abundant with game fish all year round, including species such as Marlin, Barracuda, Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Spearfish, and Shark. The waters get pretty deep as soon as you leave the dock, so you get to start fishing in about 5 minutes outside of the lagoon.

Don’t hesitate to bring your kids, and make this a vacation activity they’ll always remember! The crew will provide you with soft drinks and mineral water, just bring some snacks and sun protection, and you’re all set.

Join Maranatha Sport Fishing as they take you on an adventure of a lifetime fishing the blue waters of Mauritius!

First time big game fishing
First time big game fishing
September 18, 2022
We went out for a 4hrs half day trip. The weather was perfect. A bit cloudy and some wind. Few minutes out we had a first strike on the short corner line. The first fish landed was a beautiful 30 pounds w ahoo. We decided to fish in that same area which is about 1 nautical miles from the coast. After about 30 minutes of trolling we detected 2 schools further in the south. When arriving in the first school 5 lines went at the same time. 2 were cut bu sharks and we caught 3. We went a 2nd time hooked 3 when bringing one of the bonitoes back we could clearly see that it was attacked by a marlin. So we shifted to live bait. We tried live bait by following the school but no success. Madame started feeling seasick so we went back with the artificial lures and caught some more skipjacks. We were back at the beach at 11a.m with 9 skipjacks and a wahoo.
