Interested in booking the fishing in Dubai? Here are ten things to consider before reservation your fishing tour in Dubai:
Nothing rounds out a vacation quite like spending a bit of time fishing, and when you are at the Arabian Gulf the best way to get on fish is by booking a fishing trip in Dubai. Fishing charters are a great way to spend 4-5 hours, or a day or two, on the water without having to worry about things like mooring your boat, fuel costs or even finding the fish. There’s certainly no shortage of options when it comes to choosing the right charter for you. Just walk down to the Dubai Marina dock – odds are you will bump into a dozen captains in the first five minutes. With that kind of selection, picking the charter that’s right for you can be tricky. Lucky for you, we have put together a list of the top 10 things to consider when booking a fishing charter.
1. Best Location for the Fishing in Dubai?
Pick a charter that’s close to where you are staying. There’s no sense in having to travel halfway across the city when there are boats at the marina just down the road from you. Even if you get a better rate at the charter across town, you should consider that these boats leave kind of darn early in the morning. Getting across town before the sun comes up is tough no matter where you are, and no one wants to get up any earlier than he or she has to when he or she is on vacation, even if there’s fish to have.
2. Which types of fishing trips are in Dubai?
Do you want to do the bottom fishing or trolling? The kind of fishing that you are looking to do plays a pretty prominent role in the decision-making process when it comes to choosing a fishing charter. Be sure to ask what kind of fishing opportunities the company offers and also mention the type of fishing you want to do.
3. Group size (number of people for the fishing trip in Dubai)?
Are you on your own? Do you have a large group of people travelling with you in UAE? Are you on a day pass from family activities and hoping to get into some fish? The number of people in your party plays a huge role in picking a charter and determines things like whether you are getting a private charter for a large group or joining the shared fishing trip on your own. Boats rated for smaller groups, up to six people (called six pax) are a pretty standard size for private.
4. What is the duration of the fishing tour in Dubai?
How long do you want to spend on the water? A half day charter will get you four hours of fishing (regular fishing trip duration), in case if you would like that our team can make BBQ directly on a yacht, or you also want to swim in Palm Lagoon along the coast of Jumeirah, then you should to book five hours fishing trip. The longer you spend on the water, the higher your chances are of getting into fish.
5. What possible to catch on fishing tour in Dubai?
If you have a specific fish in mind, be sure to mention that when you are picking a charter. Sure fish only come around at certain times of the year. You are not going to want to waste your time trying to catch tuna when tuna are halfway around the world at the time you are looking to fish. Another thing to consider is how many fish you are hoping to catch. Are you looking to find enough for a meal or two or are you may be hoping to stock the freezer at home, so you have a tasty reminder of your trip in the fridge when you are feeling hungry? Letting the captain know your intention can help them plan the outing that suits you best.
6. The Captain and Crew
A little due diligence here will go a long way. Spend a bit of time researching the charter and captain online. Read reviews on Gold's Yacht Reviews and Trip Advisor to get other people’s thoughts and opinions on how the captain operates, what the boat is like, what the crew is like, and whether or not it was a good experience. Someone could very well come across like a great deal on his or her website, but end up being a total lunatic on the water, have the substandard equipment or even a boat that technically floats, also though it looks like it should not. Just like most things, the time you spend researching and reading reviews could mean the difference between living out your dreams of deep sea fishing in Dubai or being stuck in a waking nightmare.
7. Fishing Boat/Yacht type in Dubai?
The kind of boat you are on determines the type of trip you take. You cannot go on an overnight trip in a centre console boat any more than you can comfortably fish the flats in a large sports fisher. Being as specific as possible to the kind of fishing you want to will help make sure you are in the right boat for the trip you are planning. Some charter boats have restrictions as to how far they can be from shore, so your deep sea dreams might not be possible if all the charter has are canoes.
8. Amenities/Facilities of the boat in Dubai:
You might not care if there’s a bathroom on the boat or not, but others may. Knowing what you amenities you want to have—bathroom, kitchen, and fridge with BBQ facilities—helps narrow down your options. Other things to keep in mind are making sure the boat has a proper safety. All these amenities you can find if you rent a speedboat in Dubai, starting from lowest price: 400 aed per hour for 10 people.
9. Conservation practices during the fishing tour in Dubai
Whether or not you keep a fish is up to you, but you want to be sure your captain knows what’s in season and what isn’t, what any size restrictions may be, whether or not you can keep an individual fish or what the boundaries of any protected waters may be. There’s nothing worse than being on a boat with someone who does not respect the gulf or the ocean and has practices that are considered harmful, if not downright illegal.
10. Prices/Cost fishing in Dubai:
Probably the most significant factor when it comes to booking a fishing charter. The sky is the limit when it comes to how much you can spend on a day of fishing, so before you book, make sure you are getting the best deal you can. You know your budget better than anyone, and there is always the temptation to go with the cheapest option you can, but there’s a fine line between getting your money’s worth and getting for what you pay. If a deal seems too reasonable to be true, do a bit of research and make sure you are going to a reputable company and not just some guy with a boat at the dock. Moreover, for example, vessel 34 ft. With capacity for six till ten people will cost 1600 aed, this price for 4 hours of fishing tour. If you prefer to be in comfortable conditions, then we can to recommend for you hire a yacht in Dubai for the fishing trip. Yacht rental Dubai price, when speaking about deep sea fishing trip, boat 44 ft. For 10-12 people, the price will be 2400 aed for 4 hours or 3000 aed for 5 hours of a fishing tour in Dubai.
