Hilman Sport Fishing

The Maldives are made up of over 1,200 islands. Get out of Malé and explore their rich coral reefs, islands, and offshore deep spots with Hilman Sport Fishing. Crystal clear waters, luscious greenery, and glistening beaches await – not to mention some incredible fish.

Fishing is a way of life here, but Captain Hilman Abdulla sees it as more of his passion. Having fished these waters his whole life, he decided to cash in on the ever-growing tourist industry in 2017. He hopes to show every customer the hidden gems of his home country, leaving them with a lifelong positive impression of their time here.

Aboard a 20’ Fiber saltwater sportfishing boat, you and up to 3 others can enjoy the wonders of these productive waters. There’s plenty of seating for you all, along with space to fish. Fitted with downriggers and a live bait well, she’s a vessel designed to get you reeling in the biggest fish.

Troll using artificial lures or bottom fish the reefs to entice the bite of your target fish. Giant Trevally, Dogtooth Tuna, and Red Bass are just some of the thrilling and delicious species you’ll target when offshore. Along the reefs, go after a number of Snappers, Groupers, Jobfish, and many more, and you won’t be disappointed.

Let your captain know if you’d like to go snorkeling and he’ll bring plenty of gear aboard for all of you to go swimming with these beautiful creatures. All the fishing gear will be waiting for you, but feel free to bring your own fishing gear, too.

Capt. Hilman will pick you up from anywhere in Malé, so you don’t need to worry at all. All you need to bring is some drinks, snacks, sunscreen, and anything else to make the most of your day, and you’re ready for the trip of a lifetime. Discover a whole new world with Hilman Sport Fishing.

Having been fishing his whole life, Captain Hilman Abdulla decided to turn his hobby into a job. What's better than doing what you love for a living? His passion has never waned and he's just as excited to get out of bed every morning to get out on the water. The best part of the day is, he claims, obviously catching fish!
