what can I say, FANTASTIC Trip on Horizon

I had fished with Horizon back in 2001 and had a great time catching fish every day, I just wish I had not left it till now to return to this paradise island and go fishing on Horizon.
The skipper Nicholas and his crew Dede & Simon are fantastic, from the time you are picked up from your hotel and taken to the boat for the whole day you are treated like Royalty and they will do everything they can to get you on the fish. The team make you feel at home aboard and are very friendly even though I don’t know much French we all speak in fishing language and have a good laugh and joke.
I had 6 days fishing on this trip and caught skipjack tuna every day, 2 wahoo were landed 16 & 19lbs. A 22lb dorado and several yellowfin tuna to around 10lb. i am still awaiting the big one, in 2001 I hooked into a marlin of approx. 700lb but it snapped the trace, this trip we had a big strike on day 6 and half the line on the reel was emptied in about 30 seconds but the hook failed to set and yet again another got away, but what a buzz when it strikes.

A big thank you to Nicholas, Dede & Simon for a fantastic 6 days fishing and making me feel like part of the team, the food was excellent even the very hot chilli, I will definitely be back next year on Horizon and lets hope it is 3rd time lucky with the marlin and keep on looking out for the Merville birds Dede & Simon as the fish are under them.

all the best and tight lines, Peter Mathias.

Greatly enjoyed the day out on the Horizon with my family (three kids).  The guys worked hard all morning and got us on the fish - landed three nice size tuna and had a couple get away.  The BBQ was fantastic and even better with the amazing backdrop.  Thanks for making a great family memory!

The wheather was little too windy, so being at the boat was unpleasant. Crew was professional, but they don’t tell us anything what they were doing if we didn’t ask them. Food was good, and snorkling place was good. After 4 hour fishing, we didn’t managed to get fish.

We booked a full day trip with Horizon as after reading their profile I liked the story of the company especially being a family one. One of my life long ambitions was to catch a Blue Marlin which is a big ask I appreciated. The weather was great, conditions great and a good supply of beer too. Within two hours we got a massive strike on the lure but unfortunately we lost the fish (the one that got away) half an hour later we got another great strike which resulted in us landing a 143lb Blue Marlin. A very happy boy indeed. We also managed a haul of around a dozen skipjack during the afternoon so a perfect day indeed. I just wanted to thank Nicholas, Captain Dede and Simon for a great days fishing, the boat was perfect and very well equipped with top quality gear, the crews knowledge and professionalism was very evident from the time of booking to finishing the day on the jetty to a gathered crowd during the weighing and photographing our days bounty. I would highly recommend Horizon and would not hesitate to use them again especially as we were the only boat out of Grand Baie on the day to catch anything. Thanks lads. Mark

Very nice trip on Horizon. Got alot of Bonitos but a Marlin just played with the lure, instead of biting. Anoying.

Thank you Horizon
We departed right on time, Nicolas (the owner) Dede and Simon (the skippers) had well prepared the boat, the fishing equipment was all in place and ready to use, when we boarded Horizon.  The sea was quite rough, but the crew’s professionalism made us feel safe at all times.  We were soon rewarded when we entered the area where a few birds were busy flying and diving, we caught 3 Dorados of 19 lbs each.  Not even 30 minutes later, another bird display invited us to 3 big bonitos.  Dede and Simon kept searching for fish, really wanting to increase our catches for the day.  We caught a Dorado of 28 lbs, 2 more big Bonitos and a Baracuda.
Thank you Nicolas for an excellent fishing day, we believe that you have picked the best skippers available in Mauritius.  Apart from their professionalism, they are very pleasant and even find time to serve us with drinking water and cool drinks.  Horizon is in excellent condition, we look forward to our next fishing trip, which will naturally be on board Horizon.

Horizon big game fish is fantastic I first went fishing 5years ago on this boat and every year since I have returned to Mauritius to go fishing on Horizon the team is brilliant they never stop looking for the fish and go out of there way for customers to have a great big game fishing experience, I have been out in this vessel in good weather and bad and have all ways felt safe. Even took my 80year old mum and dad out fishing, who both had an amazing day. If anybody is in Mauritius and wants to go big game fish Horizon and its team will provide I great fishing experience.

We were picked up by boat owner Nicolas from out hotel, he spoke good English and was helpful and friendly.  My wife came and one other angler. The crew were professional and the boat was modern with good fishing equipment.  The captains knowledge of the sea and area put me in contact with a Tuna within 30mins. Then soon after we started the epic 3.5hr fight with what turned out to be a 616lb Blue Marlin. I’d use this crew and boat again and recommend them to any fellow anglers.

The day was a great trip - having never been deep sea fishing before I was a bit unsure of what to expect but the crew were excellent at setting up and assisting us to catch 8 skip jack tuna. The snorkelling and BBQ were a great way to round off the day. Thanks!

Nicholas and his crew did everything that they could to get me on the fish during my time with them.  We ended up catching a yellow fin thuna. His crew put in a lot of efforts to catch fish.  I think that we still did better than the other boats that were coming in. 
The owner of the boat Nicholas picked me up day by day from the hotel without any delay. The crew waited on us in the early morning and the complete boat was ready to start fishing. They were also very organized when it came to the fishing. Every second the crew was searching for the birds and changing the baits for maximum success.
Unfortunately the fishing was not very good these days due to absolutely calm sea. 
Btw, the fishing tackle is in very good condition and the lines were new.
I would definitely book with them again.  Probably the nicest guys you will find on a deep sea charter in Grand Bay.
All the best
Harry

I went out fishing on several trips on Horizon from grand baie each time we caught yellow fin tuna,darado, banito,  baracuda, and the king of sport fishing 300lbs blue marlin, the crew are always working hard to find the fish and try different location. I felt very safe on Horizon even when the sea cconditions were rough, the fishing was excellent, we also saw dolphins and massive whales. On the whole Horizon fishing trips are amazing and good value for money, I have already organised more trips on my return I was so impressed. Thank you to Nicholas and his great crew.

Thanks again Christian
