Ended up being a full day because we had a marlin fish that was 504kgs and took a while to catch. Amazing trip above and beyond what we expected.

Thanks Nick, next time let’s hope for a bigger one!!!

Went fishing on Monday, September 19, 2016

Captain and crew was very helpfull and amazing! Boat was clean and staff was friendly and willing to help! Although we only caught one Dorado, we still tried the catch the big one, the Marlin, without any luck! The captain and his staff never gave up until the end! They also assisted with transport arrangements as we needed to be picked up on the opposite side of MAuritius! The taxi driver was punctual and very friendly! I would most definitely use and recommend them again! Thank you Juan-Pierre for a great day!

Thanks Mr Ronnie.

Went fishing on Friday, June 24, 2016

We were advised at the start of the trip that given the time of year, the fish were not as abundant as in peak season. Nevertheless, Capt Jean Pierre and crew tried everything to maximize our chances. Even though we didn’t get any nibbles at first, we kept on cruising and were lucky enough to spot a few dolphins and even a pod of sperm whales! We were rewarded several hours later with a nice yellow fin tuna. Since it was around 5/6kg we were able to take the fish with us and found a local restaurant that prepared the freshly caught fish for our supper.

Was a great day fishing. Many thanks to Capt Jean Pierre and his crew!

Thanks Damien, it was a pleasure to have you on board. See you next time for bigger fish. JP

Went fishing on Monday, April 11, 2016

Jean-Pierre and his crew were very friendly, knowledgeable, seasoned fishermen. They made me feel very welcome and we had a good day out on the Ocean. It just happened to be one of those days when the fish no matter what we tried were not biting…....We fished for about 8 hours and caught a couple of small bonito. The next week we went out again for a whole day and this time the fish were hungry…. we caught 4 Wahoo 2 Mahi Mahi and 3 small yellowfin tuna (one of which was eaten by a big shark on the way into the boat) and 30/40 bonito.

The boat was comfortable enough and very well equipped. When I go back to Mauritius again I will certainly get in touch with Jean-Pierre again. Thank you

Big Thanks to Captain Jean-Pierre and his crew - it was a beautiful trip.
Easy and effective communication prior to the trip.
After catching several life bait (tuna and bonito), we managed to catch two nice dorados. Due to the excellent spotting skills and quick and effective efforts of the whole crew, it was an really enjoyable time!

We returned to Mauritius in March 14 and took 10 full day fishing trips. Outstanding!! Yet again we caught Marlin, yellow fin tuna and over 50 fish in total.
We achieved 13 strikes of Marlin and landed 2. The yellow fin tuna, 3 of them all weighed over 150 lbs each.
This time we alternated between Hooker V and Magic Hooker. Both boat crews are fantastic and I would always recommend Hooker fishing in Black River, Mauritius to anyone wanting to experience the thrill of deep sea fishing.

The sunrise is really beautiful, we got on board at 6:45, the sky was blue and pink, amazing!

The boat was clean and beautiful, there was another guy working on board, getting all the equipment for fishing, changing the lines, the fish baits. There were 8 or 9 fishing rod, enough for everyone.

But unfortunately, we didn’t see the fish group, and didn’t catch a single fish. But the view was great, and when we come back, we saw the dolphines. They really like humain and boats.

Next time I will try night fishing, there will be more fishes, cool!
