Where Do We Fish? How?

We fish approximately 20-30 km offshore, away from the coastline at special fishing spots which our captains have been researching over the years. They are saved in our GPS and once we arrive at the location we use the fish finder to look for schools of fish.

Normally we will start the trip with 1-2 hours of trolling trying to catch the larger predators.
Once we are either tired, bored of trolling, caught too much or caught nothing – we will switch to bottom fishing.

For Trolling = we use yuzuri lures and fishing spoon lures.

For Bottom fishing we use squid or sardine.
Sometimes we also work with hand lines as they provide good sensitivity for spotting the bite but usually we work with rods.
All equipment onboard is riyobi Japanese rods.

Keeping the Catch?

We are only allowed to come back to port with a maximum of 15kg or 6 large fish, otherwise we will be fined by the government.
We practice a catch and release policy as far as possible.
Naturally, you are welcome to keep some of the catch, and take it with you but with sport fishing, the goal isn’t to catch fish for consumption srictly, but rather to enjoy the act of fishing itself.
As with the law, you can keep a maximum of 6 large fish or 15kg in total.

Live Cooking FAQ

When you purchase the live cooking option, whatever fish you catch (naturally within 1-2 kg) will be cleaned, gutted, filled, salted & cooked on a small BBQ.
The fish will be served with some Arabic bread, hummus & rice.

Its not a fancy event, and we do the best given the space restrictions onboard our boat but the freshness of the fish is incomparable to any restaurant and our captains have good experience with this kind of preparation.

Food & Drinks FAQ

You are absolutely welcome to bring any food or drinks with you that you wish.
Onboard we will only have water & soft drinks (unless you specifically order the BBQ option onboard).
There is an ice box onboard for storage.
You are also allowed to bring special kinds of drinks 🙂

Is Swimming Allowed?

You are allowed to swim, but not in the open ocean. We can facilitate swimming inside the lagoon once we are back in port, but this will be counted as part of your total time, so it will either eat into your 4 hour trip or you will need to get an extra hour.

Ruben is an awesome captain and really kept working hard to make sure that we caught over 20kg of fish. The boat was exactly as pictured and all equipment was in decent state. The boat had a fish finder, a GPS an icebox and even a little sound system which was a nice touch.

We really enjoyed our fishing trip. Everything was organised on a very good level, and we caught more fish than we could take home! The captain and the crew were very helpful, always helping us with untangling finishing lines :) highly recommended if you're looking for a leisure fishing trip.

Rented a 50 Foot Azimut motor yacht which was great - clean boat, they had also arranged food, drinks & even decorations. The boat was located in an excellent location and we had an awesome time overall, will be using this company next time as well.

MORE INFORMATION

Deep Sea Fishing in Dubai

The City of Dubai lies almost entirely along the coast and fishing has historically been an important activity for the local people.
Today, fishing is a popular pastime for visitors and residents of Dubai.

Booking a fishing trip is a great way to spend the day and relax away from the stress and tension of work or a great way to spice up your vacation.
Our boats are docked in the Dubai International Marine Club, behind Barasti Bar– transportation to and from the boats can be provided if needed.

You are probably wondering what you are likely to catch during your fishing trip, the ‘staple’ of the catch while in Dubai – grouper, barracuda, king fish, sheri, and if you are lucky some travelli.
The fishing in Dubai gets a little slow during the summer months, roughly from May until October and the best time to fish is therefore October to March.

Dubai has recently become a renowned destination for port fishing, hosting some of the finest fishing related events in the entire world. Gorgeous weather, adventure, fun, and waters full of fish make a deep sea fishing trip in Dubai unforgettable.

Please note, during a fishing tour dubai – it is very important to protect yourself from the sun. and constantly hydrate yourself.

Dubai Fishing Trips: Where To Fish?

Most common deep sea fishing trips occur about 16-18 miles away from shore.
Thats is where the biggest fish are caught and its worth the bumpy ride there and back.

Depending on the time of year we may fish closer or farther to shore, also depending on the movement of the fish and the seagull behaviour aswell as just a general awareness possessed by our experienced fishing captains.

Seasons & Timing

The best time to go deep sea fishing in Dubai is early morning, starting off around 6 AM. In the winter months (Jan-Mar) there is quite a decent catch in the afternoon slot (2-6pm) aswell.
These are the 2 slots during which we run our Dubai fishing trips.
Undeniably, the best time of the year to fish in Dubai is January until May, with the January to March subset being a highlight within that season.

Common Catch: Fishing in Dubai

Trolling

Barracuda & King Fish
These 2 are the staple larger fish catch in the UAE and is something that can be consistently relied on. Normally, the season for this type of fish is between November & May.

Trevally, Cobia & Blue Fin Tuna
These 3 types are somewhat common but more rare than the 2 above and are usually only caught between January & May.
Cobia is pretty much only seen in January, February & March.

Bottom Fishing in Dubai

Sherri (Emperor Bream)
This is one of the most common types of fish in the UAE and is pretty much all year around with bottom fishing. Usually quite small.

Sultan Ibrahim (Goat Fish/Red Mullet)
Another very common fish type which is caught all year around and can be considered a part of the local staple diet. Rather small but delicious fish.

Hamour (Grouper)
Hamour is a very popular local fish but is more rare than the sherri or sultan Ibrahim. Its also bigger and arguable tastier with less bones and more fillet.

Jas & Mackarel
These 2 types of fish are much less common but none the less sufficiently common to get a mention and are often caught.

Bait & Useful Items
The most common & effective bait used in the UAE for bottom fishing is squid & small shrimp.
Naturally for trolling, the best kind of bait to use is ‘rapala’, an artificial fish mock-up.

Useful Items to Take With You for a Deep Sea Fishing in Dubai are:

  • Sunblock
  • Long Sleeve Shirts/t-Shirts
  • Warm Clothing in Winter Months
  • Sea Sickness Pills
  • Snacks
