About Abu Dhabi

    Professional Deep Sea Fishing with Best Catches in Abu Dhabi- Book now!

    The trip was amazing, I had a great time and my family had a good time as well. I would love to book again soon and would definitely recommend it to others. Our captain and guide Sudais was very professional and helpful he really made the experience worth while. If your considering the trip, ask for him if its possible. Fishing handlines where provided, but we took our own rods along with us and we used both. We caught a lot of fish, biggest Groupers I've ever seen in person. had a very good time and it was definitely worth the price.

    A Romantic Motor Yacht Rental in Abu Dhabi, UAE

    Overall a nice day out. The boat is old and clearly showing its age. If you want a relaxing cruise around the nearby area this is a decent boat on which to do it. Just know that the boat doesn't go very fast. We didn't go over 9 knots the whole trip. Pretty much every boat and watercraft were a passing us as if we were standing still. When I asked the driver to go faster he indicated it was as fast as he could go as the throttles were at full. So factor that into your trip that it will take some time to get to various locations and back to the marina. The upper deck was a nice area to relax and the crew were courteous, albeit difficult to communicate with in english.
