Whilst on holiday with the wife I took a day out with Hooker, chartering Hooker V for a full day, knowing full well it was not in the fishing season. Keeping up with catch... read more

We fished twice with Hooker Deep Sea Fishing during our recent stay in Mauritius - on two different boats: Hooker V and Magic Hooker. Hooker V is a 38ft very well equipped and spacious boat, Magic Hooker is bigger and has 3 fighting chairs. While we were unlucky during the first trip (a marlin swam behind the live bait for...

My wife and I, had a very enjoyable days fishing on the Hooker last month. We knew before we booked that July was out of season for many of the target species but we took the chance nevertheless. The boat was crewed by three really friendly Mauritians, who really seemed to know their stuff, we had 8 rods set and... More

Whilst on holiday with the wife I took a day out with Hooker, chartering Hooker V for a full day, knowing full well it was not in the fishing season. Keeping up with catch reports before I went I knew the odd marlin and sailfish was coming out, as well as smaller game fish so had quite high hopes, which... More

We visiting Mauritius in early June this year and were keen to try deep sea fishing. We were fully aware that it was out of season but the majority of people staying at our hotel who had gone fishing said they had caught various fish just not fish such Marlin which is out of season. Overall I would not recommend... More

I never went deep sea fishing before and on Saturday the 16th of January 2016, was my first time and it was also the first deep sea fishing I witnessed. I had a fantastic time; our skippers; Nathan and Jonathan, were very nice and professional, they had the situation under control. Unfortunately we didn't get lucky enough to catch a... More

Went for a full day trip with my wife whilst on honeymoon, and must say the crew were amazing. Samuel, Frederick and Pierre were fantastic with helping me reel in a 190lb Blue Marlin, as well as Wahoo and Skipjack Tuna. Amazing trip on the Magic Hooker. Would definitely recommend for all types of anglers - as we were complete... More

Amazing experience and a lovely lunch - wow! The boat crew were fantastic and helped in every way to land this King of the Sea - weighing in at 205lbs it took about 20 minutes, but we couldn't have done it without them - recommended for a once in a lifetime event

Thank you to Hooker Deep See Fishing co and especially to Christian our skipper and the amazing experience you provided us. We had the most perfect day out, watching and swimming with the dolphins, snorkeling and generally enjoying the beautiful ocean. We had a private BBQ on coconut island and we honestly wanted for nothing!! I would recommend taking the... More

Really sorry guys. We booked our fishing trip through Summertimes Tour rep. We were told by locals on the beach that it was not sea fishing season after we had booked. 4 1/2 hours with 2 small boys fishing - not a fish to be seen. Hooker DSF should have been honest and not taken the charter.

It's really a pleasant activity for fishing in deep sea. We depart early in the morning, you can even see the sunrise. The sky was pink and blue, you can see the sun come up from the mountain and the golden glory. It was really amazing! The capitain was professional, the boat was nice, there was also another guy helping... More
