Big Game Fishing is also interesting for non-fishermen, as the scenery witnessed on the boat is amazing. Some packages provide a ride around the offshore islets north of Mauritius.

Boats are fully equipped with fighting chairs, different rods, GPS, radio, radars, safety equipment, medical kits, fire extinguishers and toilets, among others. The packages usually include snacks and beverages. They are manned by qualified staff that will help those unfamiliar with fishing techniques.
