Hire a modern well equipped deep-sea fishing boat and it will whisk
you full speed beyond the coral reef to deep blue waters just 3
miles off-shore from the Paradis resort.
Mauritian waters are famous for their big game fishing and we strongly
recommend that fishing enthusiasts pre-book their fishing boats
particularly during the Marlin season. With many world records to
their name, the Paradis resort has a fleet of aptly named "Challenger"
fishing boats, by far the best on the island.
From November to April, and very often
until May, huge fish like the Blue Marlin roam the seas of Mauritius
and hunt the island, where the ocean runs 70 metres deep one kilometere
away from the coast.
Mauritius holds several world fishing records (IGFA), including
that of the mako shark, some 1115 lbs.
