Maldives: Fishing

The Indian Ocean's idyllic paradise

Maldives Fishing

Fishing trips off the islands of the Maldives can be arranged once at your resort with charted boats exploring the deep waters of the Indian Ocean. You can also hire a private speedboat complete with crew and fishing equipment at some resorts for a days private fishing. Fishing in the Maldives can be an exhilarating experience with plenty of big game fish such as tuna and marlin in abundance. Night fishing trips are also common within most resorts of the Maldives, where as well as the usual rod and line fishing, tourists can also be taken out on a local dhoni and use hand reels to catch any passing fish – not exactly extreme fishing but good fun!

Fishing in the Maldives is a wonderful experience and you’re almost always guaranteed to catch something!
