Overview
More
We, at Sportfisher, are the pioneer in Big Game Fishing in Grand Bay, north of Mauritius. We started in 1983 with one 37ft boat. We now have a wide range of boats, 29ft with twin outboards, 42ft, 47ft and 50ft boats with twin inboard engines. All our boats are equipped with Penn International or Shimano Tiagra rod and reels. You can book a half day, a full day or even a fishing safari over a few days out at sea to the Soudan bank which is 200km North of Mauritius. Our targetted spicies are the Blue & Black marlin, sailfish, spearfish, yellow fin tunas, wahoo, dorado, dog tooth tunas and skip jack tunas.
