Full Description

Fishing Trip to Soudan Bank (3 or 4 days)

The Soudan Banks are relatively far from the Mauritius mainland and they are not reachable within a day trip or by every boat. In order to reach Soudan Bank and enjoy this remarkable fishing experience you need to dedicate at least 3 or 4 days, having a true professional big game fishing vessel taking you the distance.

The Boat has powerful engines for fast cruising in the open sea, it is fully equipped, having generators, and all the key facilities and features for an amazing fishing trip. It also offers the opportunity to watch the strikes using the underwater camera and enjoy the luxurious and comfortable cabins, ideal for accommodation at sea.

Two million years ago, Soudan was a large island, as were Nazareth, Cargados Carajos and Saya de Malha. These islands were more than ten times the size of Mauritius and Reunion. However, they have submerged under the ocean.

By following the relief of the sea mount, it is possible to fish anywhere giving a wide variety of options depending on what the angler(s) would like to target. With a topography boasting a depth ranging from 3000 to 60 metres, all sorts of fish are a possibility with the right lures and guidance.

So for all you big game fisherman out there, this is the MOST Recommended Fishing trip for you! For a surcharge, you can enjoy the nicest meals onboard, paired with refreshing drinks!

Soudan Bank offers the possibilities to practise different type of fishing such as:

  • Jigging for Dogtooth Tuna, Green Jobfish, Kingfish, Giant Trevally , Captaine, Yellow Tail Croissant (Yellow-edged lyre tail) and Vielle Babonne (Spotted Coral Grouper).
  • Trolling for Yellowfin tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Wahoo, Dorado, Sailfish, Blue and Black marlin.

Honestly, it would be impossible to find any better boat in Mauritius for having this memorable journey for a great Fishing trip!

About Soudan Bank

The Soudan Banks are a group of underwater high points and reefs off the coast of Africa, known for their good fishing and they are administered by Mauritius. The five banks (actually a single feature) lie on the Mascarene plateau.

North Soudan contains large salmon stocks. The fishing here is slightly different from Great Soudan and makes a nice change of pace from the more popular Great Soudan Bank. The banks are interconnected via deep undersea channels which are best fished by using the latest fishing technology guided by the expert crew.

A hundred miles south of Ti Soudan is Great Soudan Bank, the main attraction of passionate Anglers and Fishermen across the world. This unique underwater formation is teeming with life in a special aquatic ecosystem that breeds some of the largest record holding fish in the Indian Ocean.
