Dear Tim, Thanks a lot for your nice review. We always try to give the best experience to our guests, sometimes our clients are lucky and come back with some great catches, sometimes the fish can be shy and unfortunately don't bite, sometimes the fish fights well and finds its way out, its fishing! But even when fishing is good or not, we try to give our guests an enjoyable day out at sea. Hope to see you again on board with us. Kind regards, Jean-Paul

I have fished from Grand Baie for some 10 years using the hotel boat. In fairness to the hotel, all was professional and caught many fish. The hotel boat couldn't accommodate me this time. The difference with Sportsfisher is that they communicate and educate you when you fish. I got lucky and caught 2 yellow fin tuna (143 & 148 lbs). Fishing is a lot of luck, but the difference with Sportsfisher is they talk and take you you through the whole experience.And you learn. Thank you Stephen & Curtis. Have no reservations using this company.

Dear Richard, Thank you very much for your valuable review. I am delighted that you had such a nice day out at sea with us! Fighting 2 yellow fin of this size is definitely not an easy task, well done! I will pass on your kind message to Stephen and Curtis and i hope to see you here again soon on board one of our boats. Warm regards, Jean-Paul

Early spring 2017 we had an amazing day out with sportfisher. So great it made me download TripAdvisor just to tell people about it. Yesterday we were fortunate enough to board their 50 footer for yet another wonderful trip which ended with us having 6 fair sized Dorado on the deck. All five guests got to fight a fish. The crew of skipper Michel and deckhands Michael and Curtis(?)did a great job. Constantly on the radio for tips and scouting for birds and feeding fish. Not afraid of plowing straight through fields of seaweed since Dorado like to hide there. Risking tangles and extra work didn't concern them the slightest, not even when rope caught the propeller in said seaweed and the deckhands had to dive under the boat to cut it lose did it cloud their wonderful mode. Even if you end up catching no fish, wich is a real possibility, you'll have a great time on board and youll greatly appreciate the hard work these guys put into giving their guests a great day out. Amazing guys! If the boss is reading this I hope they are soon in line for a raise😉

Booked a half day big game fishing trip with Sportfisher. I went on one of the 42ft fishing boat as it was a little cheaper than the other bigger fishing boats. Their docks are located at Sunset Boulevard which is a very nice and welcoming area in Grand Baie. We boarded our boat and off we went out at sea. The crew were very friendly and at my great suprise there were free beers offered on the boat. We didn't catch any marlin that day but had a lot of fun catching a dorado, a wahoo and some small bonitos. Overall we had a very nice experience and will definately be booking another fishing trip with them.
