When it comes to marine adventures, there’s no place that does it quite like the Maldives. The island nation has pioneered unique concepts such as island-hopping, and has now a flagship nation that is pioneering the art of sports-fishing. This involves amateurs facing off against the best the country has to offer to see who can reel in the most catches. Most certified entities that carry out sports-fishing voyages adhere to a strict catch-and-release protocol in order to adhere to a sustainable-fishing concept in order to preserve the various exotic underwater breeds that make up the marine ecosystems the island nation is renowned for.
The practice of sports fishing is offered by various hotels and Maldives resorts, most notably by Kurumba Maldives. The fishing enthusiasts are taken into the sea on a usually state-of-the-art vessel equipped with the most up-to-date fishing gear and varieties of live and non-live bait. The crew and captain will be trained in international practices in regard to sustainable fishing, as well as everything necessary in order to prepare for an emergency event taking place in the sea. The fishing enthusiast will be provided a crash-course in the fishing techniques used by the crew, either prior to setting off or at some point during the voyage, as well as getting the enthusiast familiarized with the many varieties of sea-life that populate the underwater regions.
Given that the crew are well-versed in all the necessary techniques and knowledge necessary to be expert fishermen, you’re guaranteed to have a fruitful and rewarding experience without having to worry about the disappointment of not reeling in any fish. Although the rule of thumb is, the bigger the fish, the harder it is to catch, the professional crews are guaranteed to ensure that something significant will make their way to your fishing line.
So take up the challenge and embark on one of the most unique marine endeavors the world has to offer in the form of Maldives sports-fishing voyage.
