Alpha Royale @Dhebanveli Guesthouse

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.

Fishing has been my pastime since i was a school boy. After starting my professional career as an engineer in Male we needed a boat for our recreational fishing near Male. After a while I found out that fishing is better in remote locations away from population, so I built a fishing lodge. Now running the boat and the lodge has become a very big part of my life.
