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!

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.

Hang in there, stick to your plan of targeted species. I was targeting big blue marlin. We had 1 knockdown the first 3 days of fishing. On day 4 we raised 3 marlin and got this one.

Nice fishing trip with two kids. Everything went well from the beginning of the trip to the end. Nicholas and Julien took good care of us and did everything they could to find the active fish. Despite the fact that the conditions were not the best, we still had 4 strikes during the morning. The biggest fishes were missed this time, but we still managed to catch a really nice and rare Spearfish.

It was the first time we went deep sea fishing. The crew was the best, especially Captain Mike. The boat is well equipped and professional. The weather was not on our side this time, so we only got 2 tunas. But anyway, it was the best experience we could imagine. I definitely recommend you going deep sea fishing with those guys.

Today we started at 4:00 a.m. For big game fishing with Pyramide Fishing Boat from Trou Aux Biches. My son Nikolaus (14y) and I enjoyed a perfect adventure. As we were not very experienced Mike and his Co Hansly helped us a lot and taught us how to catch yellow-tailed tunas! My son and me will never forget this day catching our first big fish! We can strongly recommend the Pyramide Fishing Boat for adventurers who are interested in Big Game Fishing! Michael from Austria

We spent a whole day fishing trip with Rishi Excursions, headed by Captain Rishi. The best trip you could ask for in Mauritius. Support local, they know the best spots. Provides snacks and drinks as well, very nice to have a chat with. We will be doing a trip again. Pleasant people and great experience, will recommend to anyone. We caught 5 Bonitos and 4 big Tuna in only about three hours. Also maybe the best price and value for money you will get. Enjoy your trip with Captain Rishi!

Wir haben von zu Hause aus gebucht. Alles hat bestens geklappt. Kevin hat uns sogar im Hotel abgeholt. Da das Fischen im Moment schwierig ist sind wir sehr früh los und konnten einige Fische fangen. Da einer meiner Söhne krank war, zeigte sich Kevin bereit etwas früher als geplant zurück an den Hafen zu fahren, was ich sehr schätzte. Vielen Dank für Alles!

Mike was great answering my questions before I booked and didn't disappoint on the day. His brother, Halsy, picked us up from our hotel further down the coast and took us back. Mike had remembered my query regarding my wife's tendency to sea sickness and had brought some medicine for her, complete in packet with full details - so kind and thoughtful. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our first ever fish - catching the tuna was a buzz!
