Rose 8th Charters offers a range of exciting aquatic activities out of the Saudi city of Al Jubail, welcoming clients onto the water for a day of fishing, diving, snorkeling, and more! Located on the country’s eastern coast, on the famous Persian Gulf, Rose 8th Charters is set to provide some of the best sportfishing Saudi Arabia has to offer, with a huge variety of prestigious species found in these warm sheltered waters.

You will be fishing aboard the Rose 8th, a 28’ Halul Boats center console with room aboard for up to 5 guests. The vessel comes equipped with all the essentials for some awesome angling, including high tech electronics to make sure you find the best fishing spots, an icebox to keep your catch fresh once you land it.

For the best results out on the water, Rose 8th Charters splits their days between jigging and casting for Grouper, Snapper, and other reef and bottom fishing favorites, and trolling for king mackerel out on the open waters. If fishing is not your main priority, Rose 8th Charters also offers great diving and snorkeling trips, heading out the Jana or Juraid islands to explore the magical world hidden beneath the waves.

All trips come with high-quality tackle, so you can feel confident taking on even the most ferocious fish. You’ll also be provided with refreshments, and a barbecue to prepare and eat your catch when it is at its freshest, cooked using the crew’s very own recipe and spice mix which they are very proud of. This makes for the perfect end to what will truly be a perfect day on the water.
