Gozo Azul Marine - Santa Maria/Inhaca Island
“Gozo Azul” means “Blue Enjoyment.” What better to describe big game fishing in Mozambique?
Departing out of Santa Maria as well as Inhaca Island, Laurens Koen will take you to explore the big game highways that run along the eastern coast of Africa. If you’re looking for BIG game fish, you’ve come to the right place.
Gozo Azul Marine Adventure Fishing Charters is an enthusiastic, friendly, owner-run deep sea fishing charter with more than 25 years of fishing experience. There’s a lot to be said for a quarter of a century as a captain: Laurens certainly knows these waters. Choose your trip, and he’ll take you on the hunt for everything from Mackerel to Marlin.
Your trip will start with a dry surf launch as you head out to sea aboard the “Numzaan.” This custom-built Butt Cat is fitted with a range of electronics designed to put you on the fish, fast. At 30’, she has plenty of room aboard for 6 anglers. On board, you’ll find a Garmin GPS and sounder, as well as night lights and a radio. Perfect for a productive and enjoyable day on the water!
Depending on the trip you choose, you could be fishing the reefs or deep sea waters for a variety of species. Longer trips will take you up to 50 miles offshore in search of giant Blue and Black Marlin and other game fish, while shorter trips will take you fishing the local Maputo waters for Snoek, King Mackerel, and more.
Shimano tackle, live bait, and lures will be ready for you onboard the boat once you arrive. All you need to bring is a fishing license, which can be purchased from the maritime office on Inhaca Island or bought on your behalf by the charter company at your request. Please also make sure to let the captain know whether you want to depart from Santa Maria or Inhaca Island.
Whatever your angling aspirations, Gozo Azul knows what it takes to enjoy the deep blue waters to the full. Let them show you how it’s done!
