Night Fishing in Maldives – Into the Magical Seas

Cast your line, sit back, enjoy the sea breeze and while darkness descends, await the gentle excitement of a fish tugging at your line. This is one of the unusual experiences that Maldives afford the discerning traveller. Luxury hotels Maldives has to offer such as the PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi Maldives sometime organize night fishing excursions worth trying. Night fishing is vastly different from day fishing. The ink blue sky, all enduring waters of the sea, gentle ripples and the stars twinkling at life beneath blend together to design a magical experience.

As sunset, traditional Maldivian vessels (Dhoni) set sail looking for the night’s catch with visitors aboard. These boats set up their gear and station near a lagoon or a coral reef to begin the expedition. Some use hand lines while others go for more traditional barbless hooks and bamboo rods whereas a few opt for more modern equipment. While the crew spins a yarn or two about fishing expeditions of the old days, visitors cast their lines into the still waters and wait for a bite from an unsuspecting fish. The gentle sway of the ocean ripples and the silence of the night can transport visitors into unearthly realms. Once the fish start biting, the real action starts. The lucky ones can fish out red snapper, barracuda or a squirrelfish for their supper along with the occasional emperor fish. Those who simply want to relax can take a break and gaze at the far away stars and contemplate life.

Once the night’s catch is in, the preparation of a meal begin. While some boats head back to land to scale clean and cook fish others opt to barbeque under the stars. And as the saying goes, nothing tastes as good as the fish you catch yourself and cook fresh out of the water.
