Fishing in Dubai

Fishing in Dubai
A deep sea fishing trip in a Gulf would become a cherry on top of your vacation experience in Dubai. And those of you who would like to dedicate their whole vacation to fishing, Dubai should be the first place in the consideration list. Fishing in United Arab Emirates in general, and Dubai in particular, is a tradition in itself – after all, 50 years ago it was fishermen and pearl divers, who started it all. We can guarantee, that you will not be disappointed by your haul – sharks, barracudas, reef groupers, queen fish and many–many others can be caught, and prepared specially for you.
Dubai’s sea water is considered to be among the cleanest in the whole world, and that is why it is so popular among fishermen from all over the planet. Fishing trips can be organized at any time of the year, but in case you are interested in a particular fish, we have got you covered - here’s a quick breakdown:
  • First of all, if you are aiming at barracuda, red snapper or catfish, you can’t go wrong with Dubai - these types of fish are available here all year around. So whenever you decide to come, you can be perfectly sure that is going to be a perfect season for fishing;
  • Kingfish, grouper and queenfish season starts in October, and ends with the first days of June - so don’t expect a good catch in summer. We recommend to come in November through February to get the best kingfish, grouper and queenfish catch;
  • And finally, if you want to catch some Cobia, November through February would be a perfect time to do just that. You’ll still have a chance to have a decent catch in March and April, but don’t expect anything during June, July or August - Dubai is famous for its high summer temperatures.
In general, the mid autumn to mid spring is considered to be the best time for fishing enthusiasts.
Now, let’s quickly mention the most popular fishing types in the region:
  • Bottom fishing is, probably, the easiest one to start from. All you need is a boat, fishing rod and a couple of bait sets to get you started. It is usually being done not far from the shore, so you don’t even have to go far from Dubai Marina or Umm Suqeim, where you will start your trip;
  • Deep sea fishing is, as you might have already guessed, is a complete opposite of bottom fishing - our experienced captain will show you the best place in the Gulf waters, and we can assure you that you will have a time of your life;
  • Big-game fishing is a sports offshore fishing, that targets large type of fish - usually tuna or marlin;
  • Trolling - a type of fishing, where you are drawing a couple of fishing lines through the water from aboard your fishing yacht, that you conveniently booked on CharterClick - how cool is that?!
