Big Game Fishing in Mauritius

Mauritius is THE destination for Big Game Fishing!

Sport fishing has placed Mauritius among the most prized destinations for Big Game Fishing in the world, with many Fishing Records, including that of Blue Marlin !

At the heart of the Indian Ocean and beyond the reef, large predators like Marlins, Tunas, Dorados, Wahoos, sharks, and more species are present all the year.

In our Big Game Fishing trip, we are mainly looking for big fishes like Blue Marlins, Black Marlins, Yellow Fin Tunas, Wahoos and Dorados.

We principally use trolling with plastic lures at high speed and freshbait like Skipjack Tuna for livebait or deadbait.

We are in the best place for fishing, west of the island at Flic en Flac between Port Louis and le Morne Brabant.

Just bring yourself !
