Fishing in Dubai

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.

Dubai Fishing Seasons

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.
