Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Dubai

According to customer reviews, Ocean Cruise - Al Rubban, 35' Super Deluxe – Deep Blue Sea, and SeaYou Watersports are some of the most popular fishing charters in Dubai. Full list of top fishing charters in Dubai.

The average price for a private 4 hour Dubai fishing trip is $467, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $762 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Ocean Cruise - Al Rubban and 35' Super Deluxe – Deep Blue Sea received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Dubai.

The most popular fish species you can target are Great Barracuda, King Mackerel (Kingfish), and Queenfish. Top fishing techniques include Bottom Fishing, Trolling, and Deep Sea Fishing. Offshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Situated on the shores of the Persian Gulf, Dubai features two opposite settings – a sparse desert landscape and a bountiful seascape. Throughout history, it was the latter of these that provided the much needed sustenance for people living here. And today, the angling remains as stellar as the city itself, with Dubai fishing charters offering epic adventures.

The Persian Gulf is home to an extensive reef system, providing habitat for a diverse range of game fish. In it, you'll get to catch huge Barracuda and Kingfish, various types of Trevally, Cobia, as well as Queenfish. There are also different bottom fish you can target along the way, including Hamour Grouper, Spangled Emperor, Amberjack, and more.

The prime fishing season in Dubai begins in November and lasts until April. It's when you'll have the opportunity to land all the species we mentioned above. By the beginning of June, the action typically slows down. However, some fish, such as Emperor and Trevally are possible catches even at this time.

Generally, the best angling and the biggest fish are found 15 or more miles offshore from Dubai. So if you're itching to fight a trophy Kingfish, get ready for a ride. Trolling and bottom fishing are the two most popular techniques. Of course, some guides offer more specialized tours, such as those that will take you fly fishing for Queenfish.

For deep sea fishing trips in Dubai, you'll want to spend at least 6 to 8 hours on the water. Shorter adventures will still give you a good taste of the Persian Gulf, though you won't be able to make it as far offshore.

Rules & Regulations

In Dubai, only residents and citizens can obtain individual fishing permits. Tourists have to go through licensed businesses to fish legally. So finding the right fishing charter in Dubai is the safest bet for a productive trip.


January

This is the middle of Dubai’s peak season. Barracuda, Trevally, Hamour, Emperor, Kingfish, Queenfish, and Cobia will all be biting.

February

Dubai's February fishery is on fire, allowing you to catch everything from Cobia and Emperor to Barracuda. Fishing in the morning or in the afternoon from 2–6 p.m. should yield the best results.

March

Cobia are starting to disappear, so your chances of catching this fish won’t be good again until fall. However, Queenfish, Kingfish, Hamour, and many others are still biting hard.

April

While the high season has passed, fishing in Dubai remains solid in April. Barracuda, Emperor, and Trevally are still in the cards. Kingfish are an occasional catch as well, though with reduced success.

May

As we approach summer, the fishing opportunities start to diminish. If you happen to visit Dubai during May, however, there'll still be Barracuda, Queenfish, and Emperor to catch.

June

Most fish are scarce at this time of year. You can continue to count on Barracuda and Snapper, who are biting all year long, though. You may be able to target Hammour Grouper, as well.

July

The hottest weather you’ll get in Dubai occurs during July, with an average high of 105°F (41°C) and low of 87°F (31°C) on the hottest day of the year. Most fish keep cool by retreating to the deep sea.

August

Fishing close to shore for Barracuda, Catfish, and Snapper is promising, as always. Offshore, the angling remains relatively slow, though you can expect things to begin improving as the month passes.

September

Fishing is starting to pick up, with the possibility of catching Emperor, Barracuda, and maybe even Cobia. Orange-spotted Trevally is also a solid target.

October

October marks the beginning of Dubai’s fishing season again. Hamour, Kingfish, and Queenfish are beginning to bite, while you can still catch Barracuda, Snapper, and more.

November

The high season is in full swing! You can target Hamour, Emperor, Sultan Ibrahim, and Amberjack. Or troll for Cobia, Kingfish, Queenfish, and much more.

December

The height of fishing continues, with every species at your disposal. Many fish stay close to the surface during winter, which makes for excellent trolling opportunities.

Great People! We (husband, wife, daughter, and grandma) had a great time and were really taken care of. The Crew of 2 worked hard to give us a trip both comfortable and fun with a lot of Fish in the End. We enjoyed tea or coffee in the morning, water, and even a small barbecue with one of the fish we caught. I can strongly recommend them for a nice fishing experience.

From the booking process through to returning to the harbour, everything was taken care of for us. Captain Sathish and his crew were extremely helpful and knowledgeable, the boat was comfortable and well-equipped, and the rods, tackle and bait were all included in the overall price. On top of that, there were soft drinks, and we even had some of our catch barbecued on board during our return to the harbour. Overall, it was a memorable experience which I would thoroughly recommend.

A good 4 hours, I only put one rod out and kept working it off the bottom. A good few fish, much better in the winter months I'm told.

I would love to thank Carlos and his crew for an amazing day out with my family.. we are new to fishing however we have managed to catch a lot of fish, the captain Adrian was very kind to give us a brief on how to use the fishing equipment, each one of us managed to catch plenty of fish and the best part of the day was being able to eat your own catch fresh on the boat.. make sure you try it cause it’s one of the best parts of this trip.

In general we had a great time. Equipment could be better. The rods we old and the reels were older. The choice of location for the trolling was very good and the size of the fish we caught was good. On the other hand, the location for bottom fishing could be better. We had a few (and small bites) here and there resulting to small fish. Other than that, the crew was excellent.

Excellent day out fishing produced a few good sized barracuda. I suggest that when rigging lines for bottom bouncing, use a slightly larger hook than the ones supplied on the day. Also may I suggest you find a nicer island, maybe one of the islands that are further away from mainland. Also your Snorkel gear needs replacing. Thanks
