About the Private Big Game Fishing Excursion in the West

A private fishing trip in the midst of the deep sea accompanied by your close ones on a meticulously designed boat, fully equipped with the latest fishing gears, - it doesn’t get any better. Set off early and head west to Black River for an epic excursion at sea without having to compete with strangers to get the perfect catch.

Cruise the Mauritian waters in full excitement up until you reach the open sea, bejewelled with rich marine biodiversity- a real open treasure box that attracts fishing enthusiasts and thalassophilia from all over the world.

Spend an unforgettable voyage off the West Coast of Mauritius, well-beyond the calm coral reefs, to the areas of incredible depths where the monster fish dwell as the sea floor drops off past the 3000m mark. This makes it the perfect place to bring those eager for a trophy catch. While at sea, keep your eyes alert to stand the chance of witnessing unique displays by Mother Nature’s creatures.

You have the option between a 5-hour fishing trip, or you can choose the 8-hour option to maximise your chance to get more big catches, ranging from massive Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Striped Marlin, Tuna fish and other pelagic species like Wahoo, Dorado, Swordfish and Mahi-Mahi, to name a few. Truly, the West Coast of Mauritius is a big-fish Mecca where all the action happens.

With experienced fishing guides by your side, this will be an amazing opportunity to expand your knowledge on deep sea fishing - the marine species as well as interesting tips and tricks utilised to get the big ones on the line.

Not only will you get to learn about fishing, but also skills like patience and perseverance as you wait for the fish to get on the line. But it doesn’t stop there; reeling in the fish might be the trickiest part but with the right techniques, some strength and determination, you’ll get to experience the most gratifying feeling ever.

Stranded amidst the deep blue ocean glistening majestically as the sun shines through, you will be hypnotised by the ever-so powerful moves of the waters. Watch the waves slowly build up the force to crash in all might against the reefs. This sight alone is worth the trip to the deep sea; even if you don’t manage to catch any fish, it won’t take much away from this heartwarming experience.

This big game fishing package includes all the required & latest equipment, be it for the fishing experience or to guarantee your safety all throughout the excursion. Hence, you just need to bring along your sun protection items to shield your skin from the island sun, and a camera to record this memorable experience so you could revisit it time & again.

Deep Sea/ Big Game Fishing in Mauritius

Mauritius is very famous for deep sea fishing which has been practised by the locals for many years. With perfect conditions prevailing throughout the year, the possibilities to fight giant Blue Marlin, Black marlin, Mako sharks, Tuna and many other exciting fish are made available to experienced anglers and beginners.

Mauritius holds several world fishing records (IGFA), including that of the mako shark of 1115 pounds, the blue shark of 400 pounds, a bonito of 41.5 pounds, a white tuna of 224 pounds and a ‘bécune’ of 125 pounds.

The famous Blue marlin's enormous size and legendary fighting ability makes it one of the most highly targeted gamefish in the world. These true giants are top of the food chain - they lurk in the waters surrounding Mauritius, waiting to pounce on an unsuspecting tuna or a lure bubbling and splashing behind a boat. They are generally loners and put on a spectacular battle when hooked, jumping all over the surface while also staying under and fighting down and dirty. Battle's with these monsters can last well over three hours; the longest fight in Mauritius was twenty six hours before the line broke!

With its rich marine fauna, Mauritius is revered by Deep Sea Fishing enthusiasts worldwide.

For an angler, little can compare to the thrill of the chase to get the adrenaline pumping. The roar of the inboard engines, and the scream of tightly stretched lines when a marlin or other game fish has taken the bait, is a pulse-racing experience!
