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 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!

Back with some skipjacks and a 50pounds
Back with some skipjacks and a 50pounds
June 16, 2024
We were out for a 5hrs morning trip. The sea conditions were perfect and we were heading south when we met a school of skipjacks. After crisscrossing in the school for few minutes no bite so we shifted to another one where we hooked 2 skipjacks. Later on we hooked a nice yellowfintuna on the long rigger line. On the way back we caught some mackerel bonitoes. It was her first try for big game fishing.

We were out for a 4hrs afternoon trip. Some minutes after putting all the lines out we noted the presence of some tuna in the area. We immediately re organized the lines to target the yellowfins. The tuna started bitting. We had some fun catching 4 of them. The biggest was 40 pounds...we were back in the lagoon for some picture as souvenir.

Great 5hrs morning trip
May 28, 2024
We started at 7a.m the tide was going down. We headed to the area where some friends caught skipjacks the day before. No sign of fish after an hour out. We decided to move to deeper waters where we found a school of skipjacks. When entering the school we saw a sailfish playing with on of our lures. The second time it came to the lure the hook got him. After some fight the fish was in. We immediately set back the lines and hooked 2 big skipjacks average weight from 25 to 30 pounds. One went away. We then shifted to another school where we caught 5 yellowfintuna and about 7 to 8 skipjacks more. On the way back while bringing in the line we hooked a big barracuda and caught it.
