Dubai is steeped in the tradition of merchant traders, pearl divers and fishermen, and much of this tradition is still evident. The warm waters of the Gulf teem with fish life in the winter and this attracts the ever hungry gamefish. But Dubai is better known for its futuristic architecture, world class shopping and 7 star accommodations. It’s hard to believe that with all this luxury and adventure there is still great fishing in and around Dubai.
Charters are available for day or half day charters. The boat is based in the Fishing Village near the Burj Al Arab Hotel. The boat travels up to 30 miles into the Arabian Gulf depending on species targeted and duration of charters.
