Fish Dubai in Abu Dhabi & Dubai UAE Directory


Dubai has become one of the hottest sailfishing venues in the world. The exceptional tag and release records are proof of this phenomenon. To see the pods of sailfish finning out in these calm seas is a thrilling experience. The abundant sailfish are due to plankton which thrive in the warm water. Plankton is food for the vast shoals of sardines which slowly migrate through the Gulf. The pods of sailfish feed on these sardines. The sailfishing grounds extend from Um al Quawain in the north to the Sur Abu Nauur island in the west; a distance of between 25 and 45 miles off the coast of Dubai city. The Sailfish season runs from late September to the end of April, and other types of game-fishing are also available. Other fish caught include: Queenfish, Barracuda, Kingfish (Spanish Mackerel), Cobia, Trevally, Dorado and Bonito. Sea conditions are generally calm with very little wind, making the trip to and from the fishing ground pleasant. Fishing tackle, which is supplied by the boats, consists of 20, 30 and 50 pound outfits. Rods and reels are all good quality. Salt water fly fishing tackle is available on request. As an affiliate of the Meridian Mina Seyahi Hotel, we have access to all the facilities of the Club Mina, including the restaurant, beach and swimming pool area. This allows us to offer client-families the use of these facilities whilst the boats are at sea.
