Dubai Deep Sea Fishing Trip

Fishing might not be the first activity that you think of when planning your trip to Dubai, but thanks to its warm, calm waters and its rich abundance of marine life, it is fast becoming a must-visit destination for keen anglers from around the world. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the open water, as you escape the noise and bustle of the big city.

Fishing is an important part of Dubai culture, and was once an essential element of the lives of the people who lived in the city. As a coastal city, next to waters renowned for their abundant populations of fish and other marine life, the activity which once helped to feed the city is now one of the many popular leisure activities Dubai has to offer – for both visitors and locals.

From expert anglers to absolute beginners, fishers of all ages – from all backgrounds – flock to Dubai to experience the fantastic combination of excellent facilities, exceptional fish volumes, and the world-class hotels and amenities available in this wonderful, modern city. For some, Dubai is now considered one of the world’s premier fishing destinations – particularly for those interested in sailfish, of which Dubai boasts an abundance. For others visiting this city of lavish malls, gleaming skyscrapers and luxury hotels, fishing offers an unexpected pleasure – a tranquil getaway from all the noise and bustle of Dubai.

The calm, warm waters off the coast of Dubai offer the perfect fishing environment. In addition to sailfish, you will find many baitfish and game fish, thanks to the plankton which thrive from October to May. A huge variety of fish – from sardines and tuna to dolphins and sharks – may be spotted in the Arabian Gulf, making this a magical place full of natural wonder. From the vantage point of a fishing boat, this is also an ideal place to see some of the beauty of the coastline – including pristine sandy beaches, traditional souks, luxury hotels and striking modern architecture.

Certain fish species benefit from a tag-and-release scheme, to help protect and maintain this thriving and enjoyable ecosystem. The majority of fish, however, are free to catch and eat – offering you the unparalleled pleasure of enjoying a freshly smoked fish that you have just caught yourself. On our fishing tours you will enjoy refreshments and light snacks on board, as well as a live cooking demonstration after fishing. Equipment is provided too, so you don’t even have to bring your own rod.
