Skull Fishing - Vaavu Atoll

Skull Fishing runs year round fishing trips out of Vaavu Atoll. You can experience the unique waterways of the Maldives atolls with a professional fishing charters company. The crew will take you out fishing across various atolls and islands scattered between them in search of some big fish.

Skull Fishing is a team of fishermen who run fishing trips around the vast waterways of the Maldives. With these anglers, you can target Giant Trevally, Wahoo, Amberjack, Snapper, Grouper, Sailfish, Mahi, and even some Black Marlin.

Whatever your skills are, the crew will help you have a day to remember. They will provide all the gear and will put you on track. The prize catch is some 20 and 50 miles out, but you can often find really big fish closer to the shoreline. If you’re targeting big game, you’ll use trolling and jigging with live bait, whereas if you stay closer to the shore you can get Trevally to go after those poppers. Anglers who want to unwind as well can stay around the inshore waters and maybe even get in for a quick dive.

The crew of Skull Fishing will welcome you aboard their 25’ Offshore 25 center console. She has two 115 HP Mercury engines and can get you to the hot spots in no time. For most comfort, he charters work best with groups of up to six anglers, although the boat can take up to ten people. Onboard, you will find a toilet, stereo sound system, navigational gear, and safety equipment, as well as Penn and Shimano tackle.

The crew will supply all the gear you’ll need to get hold of your dream fish. You’ll have snacks and soft beverages on shorter trips, whereas lunch is provided on full day trips. The fishing license is included in the price. You should only pack sunscreen, a cap, sunglasses, and light clothes.
