Deep-sea fishing is among the special activities for families or friends. People of all ages, males, and females, and novice in deep-sea fishing enjoy this activity. Charter boats leave Dubai Marina Walk at intervals of an hour until 2 PM. The boats that run on contemporary twin outboards engines have the most state-of-the-art equipment. Throughout the 4 hour trip, our experts will demonstrate the use of equipment, “baiting up” and, the safety features on board.
All of the equipment is set for visitors to start their hunt for that prize fish. The prime fishing spots are just a few miles from the Dubai coast and are reached in 30 minutes. They are no less than 30 meters in depth. The boat captain is going to drop anchor. Our expert crew will be there for helping visitors lay down the lines, wind in and get that exciting catch! Visitors can pull out groupers, snappers, cat ﬁsh, and baby sharks, and bottom dwellers weighing as much as 6 kg.
Visitors can broil their catch on the grill with the help of our staff or they can take their catch home. They will be served some light refreshments throughout the trip. Our fishing charters operate daily across the season from Dubai Creek. They are custom-made for beginners and practised anglers. Those who want pickups from other emirates have to pay extra.
