Overnight Exclusive fishing trip on a 53ft boat in Rodrigues!

Rodrigues is one of the best “multi-fishing” destinations in the world surrounded by a large continental plateau. The entire plateau is covered with numerous spots (small underwater structures as "coral mushrooms") perfect for jigging and bait fishing.

Come and discover firsthand the roar of the inboard Caterpillar engines, and the scream of tightly stretched line when a marlin or other gamefish has struck the kona, is a pulse-racing experience! As part of the trip, you can expect to see a variety of fish in the lagoon of Rodrigues such as dog tooth tunas, groupers, wahoos, ignobilis kingfish, marlins, dorados, yellowfish tunas, sailfish, sharks…

Overnight Fishing around Rodrigues / East Bench – 50 nautical miles away from the shore

  • Crazy about fishing?
  • Looking to discover a virgin fishing destination?
  • Are you up for a once in a lifetime adventure?
  • Searching for something extraordinary?

Look no further! This is definitely the ideal trip for you!

This overnight fishing trip – duration of 2 days / 1 night (34 hours) is all about doing the extraordinary, discovering a true heaven on earth with various astonishing species and having a lifetime memorable experience.

On-board a 53 feet boat you would head for about a 34 hours of adventure for the best fishing experience of your life.

You can choose to either have an extended tour around Rodrigues or go sea-hunting on the East Bench.

The boat departs at 08:00 from Port Mathurin for a thrilling adventure at sea: two days of heart-stirring fishing and a nomadic night at sea. Night fishing is an experience filled with emotions.

During this trip, you will sail for more than 6 hours to the outer sea where you can find a greater variety of fish species in abundant numbers.

With a maximum of 5 participants, you will enjoy the boat exclusively for yourselves accompanied by two very experienced fishermen known by the locals as the Gods of the Rodriguan waters.

As part of the trip, you will discover a wide range of fish species within a few miles of the port (ditto rate for 2 days/ 1 night on the East Bench). Be warned, some ‘fishing fights’ can last for monstrous hours!

During the night, the boat will stop at sea for the night stay. It is one unique opportunity to feel the rhythm of the waves while you doze away from the tumultuous landlife.

The East Bench - Located 50 miles east, there is a huge structure offering more than 2000 meters of altitude. This half ‘Mont Blanc submarine’ is spread over an area of 100 km2. Peaking at 41 meters below the surface, it is a real springboard for the ocean currents which, hitting them, create marvelous upwelling, replacing cold, denser water brought up from the subsurface.

Included in the price!

  • Full Board stay consisting of 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and drinks; all to be provided on board.

After a memorable time on the deep sea, the boat will drop you back on shore at around 18 00 at Port Mathurin on the second day of the trip.

About Game Fishing in Rodrigues:

What was traditionally a small-scale activity and a livelihood support has developed into an internationally-famous sport today for the worshippers of fish. Rodrigues’s location is strategic, with its outer reef edges miles away from the coast and shoals rich in fish; the sea around is bountiful. It is of no wonder that the island is a holder of world fishing records; for specialists, this is only the beginning of a long series of many other records to come.

In Rodrigues, you can find two ideal fishing periods: from October to June, and from December to April. Also keep in mind one important thing: where the sea is too easy, fishing has become very hard.
