Dubai is entirely a coast line city and fishing has been a major part of the heritage of the country. In modern times, this global tradition thrives very strongly in Dubai and the UAE more generally and sport fishing is a popular activity here. Fishing is a perfect mix of a meditative state interjected with flashes of adrenalin dumps that makes it a perfect way to relax from the busy lives that most of us lead.
Timing & Transfers
We have two fishing trips daily an afternoon one that departs at 2.00pm and a morning one that departs at 6.00am.
You will be picked up from your hotel 30 minutes prior to departure.
Once all guests (max. 6) are onboard we will make our way to the fishing spots which are approximately 16-19 miles off shore.
Upon arriving at a few very well researched and tested GPS coordinates we will start with trolling with the goal of trying to catch bigger fish.
Depending on the wishes of the client we will troll for about 1 to 1.5 hours.
Next, we will move to another location that is perfect for bottom fishing and drop anchor, switch fishing rods from trolling ones to bottom fishing rods and pursue a different kind of fish, smallers ones.
