On March 2005, we decided to open our big game fishing centre in Rodrigues Island, a part of Paradise, lost in the middle of Indian Ocean whose nearest coast is Mauritius, situated 600km Western. Then, we were (and still are), cinvinced of the fishery potential that Rodrigues could offer, especially beautifull "strikes" to anglers who would honour us with they're coming aboard.

What happens if a trip is cancelled because of weather conditions? You will benefit an asset, available for 2 years. However, Captain is the only one to take the decision to cancel a trip. If customer cancels for personal reasons, this last one is due. 4. Do you offer half-day trips? No, even if we are in action as soon as we leave the port’s area. Good spots are still quite far. We would have just arrived on spot and we would have to come back. We prefer you to be disappointed by our answers rather than results. 5. Can we keep a small piece of fish for dinner? Of course! The crew will fillet with great pleasure. 6. What about the moon? Moon conditions tides and therefore currents. It is often stronger at moon changing phases. Some prefer fishing during full moon or black moon. Others do not believe in it and they do not fish less so far. Everybody knows fishing is not an exact science and sometimes, other parameters intervene.
