The collection of islands known as the Maldives are infamous for their unspoilt beaches, serene tropical landscapes, and the elaborately designed hotels and resorts scattered throughout the many islands that collectively form the nation. While many people visit Maldives to simply lay on the unspoilt beaches, embark on an island hopping expedition or take part in many of the parties that take place, most overlook the fact that the Maldives is one of the most spell-binding experiences one can get when it comes to fishing.
If you’re an international traveler, there are many ways you can organize a fishing expedition for yourself. Many a Maldives beach resort have their own special guided fishing expeditions with notable examples such as the Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon, but the best ones that are always guaranteed to satisfy their customers are the expeditions that are organized by the professional fishermen of the Maldives. Once an excursion has been organized, a boat will show up as scheduled to your hotel, and the adventure will begin.
There are various categories of fishing excursions that will cater to your fancy. A popular excursion is a big-game hunt where the fishermen focus on locations known to harbor large amounts of Tuna, Sailfish, Barracuda, Dorado and Wahoo. If you’re more a nocturnal creature, then there is an expedition for you. The night fishing excursion is designed to showcase a special manner Maldivians utilize in fishing through the use of hand-lines and raw-fish as bait, under the backdrop of a starlit Maldivian sky. Each fishing expedition is usually concluded with a meal or barbeque organized by fishing crew. One of the more extravagant means to embark on a fishing voyage is a luxury fishing boat, which will be a unique and extravagant fishing experience like no other.
If you’re fond of venturing into the sea to acquire a wonderful catch of fresh marine goodness to take home, then take a trip to the Maldives and embark on a fishing trip like no other.
