JPH Charters - Gamefisher 1

JPH Charters has been one of the oldest fishing charter businesses in Mauritius. This family-owned business, established in 1975, was founded by Jean Pierre Henry, the pioneer in big game fishing!

In 1999, Jean Pierre’s son joined the company. While JPH Charters was mostly all about Marlin fishing, Pascal added popping, drop shot, and jigging to the list of the fishing methods and techniques. They also introduced catamaran sailing cruises and ‘swimming with dolphins’ tours, which have become very popular activities on the island. Jean Pierre’s elder son, Dominic, joined the crew in 2010 to look after the boathouses service.

The company can accommodate anglers of all skill levels and expertise. Give them a go if you are looking for something different on your next vacation in Mauritius – even if you have never held a fishing rod in your hand before! They will take you out on their 26’ ‘Gamefisher 1,’ a comfortable vessel with twin 175 HP Suzuki engines. She is a stable boat, rigged with everything you need for a productive day out on the water.

You will spend your day fishing the nearshore and offshore water with all rods, reels, tackle, and bait provided. Beer, soft drinks, and water are also included in the price. You can also request a lunch for an additional price.

Get your hands on various types of Tuna or target whatever else is in season and biting!
