Maranatha Sport Fishing

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 2018. It’s powered by twin 135 HP 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!
