JPH Charters - Moana 2

Colonel Dean Ave
Grande Riviere Noire, Mauritius

Moana 2 is a 42’ boat with a maximum capacity of 8 persons per trip. The vessel comes outfitted with a standard range of navigational utilities, including GPS, fishfinder and VHF radio, and features a bathroom as well as a fighting chair on board.

Jean Pierre Henry founded his fishing charter business back in 1975, laying the groundwork for deep sea boom in Mauritius for decades to come. Pascal Henry, Jean Pierre’s son, updated the family business by joining the team in 1999 and adding many new and exciting fishing techniques such as drop shot, jigging, popping to their fishing portfolio. 2010 saw the addition of Jean Pierre’s other son Dominic to the team.

Mauritius has become notorious as a deep sea fishing hotspot in the last several decades, not the least thanks to an optimal blend of weather and marine conditions that prevail almost all year round, allowing charters to target species like the Blue Marlin, but also Black Marlin, a variety of Sharks, Dorado, Wahoo, Yellowfin and Dogtooth Tuna and more.

We had a wonderful day out on the water with Francis and Albert. Although we left the big ones for another day the boys could not have done more for us on the day. The boat and gear was top class and immaculately maintained. I would definitely recommend this charter service to other anglers.

The crew on Moana 2 was great !!!
The “skilled team” worked hard the full day , inorder to fulfill my dream to fight a blue marlin.
We succed to catch & realese a blue marlin ( size +300lb).
My 13-year old daugther Ida, caught strong bonito, and she is very proud of this.

It was a proud moment when we arrived with the boat to the marina, with the “red-flag”
waving in the sky.

If I have the possibilities in the future to come back , Moana 2 will be my choise.

Hi Peter,

“The crew on Moana 2 was great !!! The “skilled team” worked hard the full day , in order to fulfill my dream to fight a blue marlin” what a nice compliment!

It is never easy for a Captain or the crew to please everyone, although it is our daily goal, but there is nothing more rewarding than a review like the one you have just posted on fishingbooker. Thank you so much.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
