Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Mauritius

According to customer reviews, Pyramide Fishing Boat, Coeur De Lion, and Rishi Excursions are some of the most popular fishing charters in Mauritius. Full list of top fishing charters in Mauritius.

The average price for a private 4 hour Mauritius fishing trip is $321, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $476 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Pyramide Fishing Boat, Coeur De Lion, and Rishi Excursions all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Mauritius.

The most popular fish species you can target are Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Yellowfin Tuna, and Blue Marlin. Top fishing techniques include Deep Sea Fishing, Trolling, and Heavy Tackle. Offshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and reef fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Mauritius is famous for its one-of-a-kind flora and fauna, stunning mountains, and pristine beaches. It’s also the place where some of your angling dreams could turn into a reality. With access to reefs and banks that are teeming with fish, Mauritius fishing charters know where to go to help customers catch some trophies.

There are many different species you could target in this stretch of the Indian Ocean. However, many anglers come to Mauritius for the chance to catch Billfish. Big specimens of Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin are caught in these waters every year. Besides these, you can also hook into majestic Sailfish and Shortbill Spearfish.

Luckily, the fishing opportunities don’t stop there. If you’re a Tuna fan, you’ll be glad to hear these waters are home to Skipjack, Dogtooth, and the prestigious Yellowfin Tuna. Some of the other species you may come across are delicious Mahi Mahi, powerful Giant Trevally, Barracuda, Wahoo, and others.

Mauritius features year-round fishing but the best time to catch a Billfish is between November and March. For the best chance at a trophy, you’ll want a full day trip. On shorter outings, you can expect to reel in species such as Mahi Mahi, Bonito, and various reef fish. Charter captains are distributed all along the coast of Mauritius. The most popular starting spots are Black River, Le Morne, and Grand Baie.
 

Rules & Regulations

Whether you’re fishing aboard a charter in Mauritius or casting from shore, you won’t need a fishing license to do so. Just keep in mind that spearfishing is illegal on the island. Usually, the fish you catch on your trip belongs to the boat. However, you’re more than welcome to ask your captain to keep some fish for dinner.

January

January is your last chance to enjoy peak Wahoo season. They’ll still be in the water, don’t worry, just not as much as we’d all like them to be.

February

The Marlin bite is absolutely on fire the first few months of the year. Add to that some tough Sailfish, and it’s an offshore fishing paradise all the way.

March

It’s around early spring that the Skipjack and Yellowfin Tuna season really gets going. If Tuna’s not really your thing, there’ll be plenty of Marlin down in Le Morne.

April

Culinary addicts should make sure to check out the annual Bernard Loiseau culinary festival. Nothing like a bit of fishing beforehand to work up an appetite.

May

The Yellowfin bite is still going strong this time of year. As the summer starts rolling in, expect Mahi Mahi to be all over the place.

June

Fishing for big pelagics is fun. Not least because you’re already fishing within minutes of heading out. Mahi Mahi and Barracuda will be your main targets.

July

If you know your way around a kayak as well, the Mauritius Ocean Classic is sure to be worth your time. This annual race draws in kayak enthusiasts from all over the world.

August

If you’re a fan of Sharks, Mauritius becomes Hammerhead central come August. Alternatively, the water is full of various pelagic species.

September

Come September, we welcome the start of peak Wahoo season. Coupled with Marlin, Mahi, and Tuna, it’s a seller’s market out there for any interested offshore angler.

October

October is party time in Mauritius! But before you head off to the numerous music festivals, why not also partake in some fantastic fishing in the morning.

November

If you’re in the market for Dogtooth Tuna, now’s your time to shine. Who knows, maybe you’ll be the next local record breaker! The stage is set to give it your best.

December

December is when the Blue Marlin bite starts going off the charts, both in Le Morne and elsewhere on the island. Get on the water and make the best of the time you have!

If fishing live bait, ask the captain to give you a rod too, otherwise you will be watching the crew fish and waiting for them to hook one for you. If you are a fisherman, you will want to experience the take!!!

The best Blue Marlin season even though it is still hard to catch. Fortunately full day fishing you can catch something else too. At least for us sea conditions were nice but sun is really burning. Better got a boat with suncover.

Don´t expect to catch always Blue Marlen, we got a 21.3 kg Giant Trevallor and it was picked up for Restaurant after taking Picture. The Ocean has many surprises and this is what you should looking for. Perhaps the list of fishes to be cought there should be Extended after that catch.

Check with the captain about keeping the catch or not. If you want to keep the catch you will probably have to pay for it. Bad practice, but common in Mauritius.

The skipper (Kevin) and crew are friendly and try everything to put you in the fish. All of the equipment is top of the line and looked after. The boat is fast to get you to your locations quicker and has everything on it you need for an enjoyable day out.

Amazing experience!! Many thanks to Rishi and his crew member for a great time! During the 5 hour journey we saw dolphins, whales, even a shark and caught a lot of beautiful fishes. Rishi and the partner did a fantasic job in making sure we are happy, helped with the fishing, had different lures and fish food. Strongly recommend choosing fishing activities with Rishi! Merci or how in Lithuania we say - ačiū!!

Amazing day with Stephane and the crew, all super nice and friendly. Caught a good size Dorado and a small tuna, missed a few other strikes one of which was a Marlin. Saw loads of Sperm whales, big and close to the boat, a pod of Dolphins, and wonderful view of Mauritius from 12 miles out. Could not recommend this crew and trip more highly, generally an amazing day.

We spent a great day out with Mike and his team. They were all great and showed they enjoyed their work! The first hook up was a very impressive yellow fin which was the first of five tuna caught on the day. The crew was top notch and were all very experienced, courteous and great fun. Be sure to pick Pyramid for your next fishing adventure!! If anyone is going to catch you fish, these guys will.

Kevin’s communication via WhatsApp before the trip to organise the pickup was great. Kevin was very reliable. The boat was in great conditions and tidy. We caught plenty of fish and even with no previous fishing experience it was a great experience for us as a group of friends. To learn a bit more about the practices and marine life around Mauritius would have been interesting for us. We definitely recommend the fishing experience with Captain Kevin and his Crew.

Had a great day, started early 5:15 pick up but no fish for first 60-90 min. Both large Tuna and Mahe Mahe was caught off deep trolling. They fish differently here so purists take note. First the boys drop the deep trolling lines, then they let out the surface lines all mix of lures, only then can you touch the rods. Freindlyncrrw and knowledgable and great boat, handy to have deep trolling lines as well as surface rods

Very exciting fishing trip. Captain Labonne was very warm and helpful. The boat was small and therefore couldn’t go to the deeper waters. Lucky to have caught 2 yellow fin tuna and one skipjack tuna. Had to return mid course as my wife became sea sick. For trips with family, a bigger boat of about 40 ft. length is recommended.

We have made several fishing trips around the globe but this one was amongst the best! We took off early morning and on arrival at the fishing spot we landed our first tuna after an intense 20 mins fight. Captain Mike and his brother are really good company and excellent fishermen. In total we caught 2 yellow fin Tunas and 5 Dorados. Thanks again guys for an amazing experience!

It is a fantastic day out with Captain Antonio and his fantastic crew. They have so much experience, they share every detail of their techniques to trying to catch the fish. I believe by the end of the day we had 12 bites and caught 9 Bonitos They can also arrange a transfer from your hotel for you. Don’t hesitate to book this!
