Fishing in Dubai


Fishing in Dubai is one of the best possible experiences that you can ever have while on vacation in the beautiful country of Dubai.

Dubai is one of the safest places in the world to travel to and it is also one of the best destinations if you want to embark on Dubai fishing trips.

There is nothing like deep sea fishing in Dubai as the waters are perfect and the sailfish you can catch never truly ceases to amaze.
When inquiring about fishing, expect the amount that you will be paying to differ depending on the trip provider that you deal with.

On the average, Dubai sailfishing will cost you about AED 1500 to AED 2400 and it will come with a boat, meals during the trip, instructors, and basically anything you might need for the voyage.

The price is not per head or per person but per boat and each boat can carry up to 10 passengers apart from the crew.

You might need some practice before you become an expert at catching fish in Dubai but nevertheless, I can guarantee you that trying this activity out will convert even a non-fishing trip type person to an avid fan of fishing.

Fishing in DubaiWhen you are in Dubai, you will be fishing on the Arabian Gulf and this is the secret to why the experience is simply amazing.

The waters of the Arabian Gulf are warm and shallow and there is enough plankton for the vast schools of sardines that serve as bait for the sailfish.

When it comes to fishing in Dubai, these sea conditions result in the possibility of catching sailfish in approximately 30 to 40 miles offshore in only about 30 meters of water.

Sailfish is not the only kind of fish that you will be able to encounter here for there are also kingfish, queenfish, dourado or dolphin, long tail tuna, giant trevally, bonito, Spanish mackerel, cobia, and barracudas.

The average number of sailfish that locals can get on Dubai fishing trips run to around 5 to 9 sailfish per trip depending on the experience of the fisherman and sometimes sheer luck.

It takes a certain amount of skill when it comes to catching fish in Dubai but this is something you can easily learn with some practice and you may even end up catching your first sailfish on your first fishing trip here.

Apart from the usual mall trips or sightseeing activities in Dubai, fishing in Dubai really offers you that unique experience that cannot be matched by a simple walk down the park. It is something that I advise you to try if you visit my country.

Actually, it is something I recommend that you not pass up when you are here. I have tried it myself and it is truly something that you will not forget for the rest of your life.

So, when you are in Dubai, try to fish and experience something different. Enjoy, my friend!
