Maranatha is a 40’ Berger boat that was restored in 2015, and is powered by twin Ford Lemand 135HP engines. The vessel sports a spacious and comfortable double cabin, a capacious sun deck, an elegant interior seating area as well as a platform in the back. There’s an icebox for food and drinks and a large restaurant-like table. Maranatha has access to fresh water, as well as a private restroom.

As for equipment on board, Maranatha is outfitted with a GPS, sounder, radio and CD player, as well as a variety of security equipment, including life jackets, life belt, first aid kit and a fire extinguisher. For fishing, the boat uses Penn International reels (3x 130lbs, 2x 80lbs, 2x 50lbs), and utilizes a range of big game lures. A fighting chair, outriggers, downriggers, 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 virtually all year round, including species such as Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna, Dorado, Sailfish and more. The trips usually start between 6 and 8 a.m. Thanks to the island’s positioning, you get to start fishing about 5 minutes outside of the lagoon. The lines get wet, as the crew puts out lures of different colors and sizes and sets the brakes off the reels. Trips include the use of high-quality fishing gear, live bait, lures, fishing licenses, soft drinks and mineral water.

I went to Mauritius to fish and the airline misplaced my rods for the first 10 days of my trip 2 week trip but thanks to Capt Antonio and his crew and the Maranatha my fishing experience wasn’t a total right off.  Capt Antonio was very quick to reply to emails and was able to get us out for a 3/4 day trip.  Two of the people I meet from my resort had never been deep sea fishing before, but thanks to the crew we were able to get them into the chair and land some dorado.  I have fished almost everywhere I have traveled and I have to say that the crew were top notch and were constantly searching the horizon for birds and signs of fish activity.  On our way out Capt Antonio noticed a pod of whales so he also took the opportunity to try and get us as close as he could so that we could get some great pictures to just add to the experience.  I have to say that you never know what you might catch or if you will catch anything but the crew and Capt. Antonio will try what ever they can to put you onto fish vs some boats that might just swap out a lure or two.

Came aboard at 7am ,the boat was perfect and ready for fishing. Within 10minutes of leaving the beach the lures went out,within the hour we’d caught 3 Bonito, within the next hour 1 skip Jack tuna. The captain was constantly looking for the fish and soon got us into a couple of large tuna. Two weighing 30lbs+, went a bit quiet for a little while,but was enjoying the sun and view of the south coast. Plenty of food and drink on board to keep us going. After a bite to eat my wife caught another large tuna as did I. Finishing off the day with yet another skip Jack. Great experience, fantastic day, would 100% recommend these guys, very friendly and know the water. We had also looked at others on the island but kept coming back to maranatha big game fishing and I’m glad we did! We’ll never forget this experience,thanks guys!
