The small family business www.aquila-fishing-mauritius.com was born out of the common passion of Big Game Fishing shared by a father and his sons for more than 60 years.They have spent countless days working the seas around Mauritius on board the different boats they have owned over the years; they are fully aware of the sea bed contours, tides and currents around the island …
Aquila , sportfisherman of 53 feet, was Launched in December 2017.Designed and built in Mauritius, she is perfectly suited for the needs of big game fishing in Mauritius.She is very seaworthy and provides for a smooth ride whilst offering good comfort with a flybridge, 3 cabins with bunks and bathroom.Powered by twin Yanmar 464 hp, she has an autonomy of almost 300 sea hours with her 5000 lts fuel capacity.This allows for fishing expeditions of several days around Mauritius. Safety being a priority, the boat has been equipped with VHF radio, satellite phone, AIS receiver, autopilot, radar, emergency distress beacon, life raft and life jackets.
The mooring of Aquila in Cap Malheureux is the perfect starting point for the observation of hump back whales: from July to September, when great numbers migrate
to the warmer waters around Mauritius specially around the shallow waters surrounding the islands off the Mauritius North coast offering spectacular shows to those who want to try the experience !
