Orca Oman will reveal some secrets for the best fishing opportunities around. The only thing you have to do is book a trip and hop onboard!

Join a professional crew to be a bit closer to your dream catch. Bring your kids with you - there is nothing better than seeing a child smiling when they hook into their first ever fish! Beginners are also welcome to join in the adventure.

Spend your day battling Yellowfin Tuna, Giant Trevally, and Sailfish. Get your hands on Snapper, Barracuda, Amberjack, and Kingfish. Target Mahi Mahi or go for Grouper. The opportunities abound! For those of you who are looking for that dream giant Yellowfin Tuna, the best time to face-off is between Feb and Nov.

Spend your day fishing and combine it with snorkeling. If you want to be a real hunter, book a spearfishing trip. Enjoy the beautiful waters of Muscat and Daymaniyat Island off the coast of Oman.

Orca Oman will take you out aboard a 31’ Gulf Craft, a fishing machine suitable for battling the ocean predators. The boat features a restroom with fresh water, which is a much-needed thing when spending your day on the water. Equipment-wise, the vessel is outfitted with Shimano reels, a GPS, a sonar, Cannon downriggers, and other professional accessories. There is plenty of space for up to 4 anglers.

All tips come with everything you need to make a great catch possible. All the fishing licenses, gear, tackle, lures, light drinks, and snacks are provided.

Food is available at an additional cost of OMR 5.00 per person (to be given directly to the captain on the day of the trip). The lunch options include local Omani food (chicken with Qaboli rice).
