Summary

Summary

Guided Kayak Fishing in Abu Dabi every Friday and Saturday

Kayak fishing is a perfect way to target areas where boats cannot easily reach and cover large areas of water from a comfortable platform. The kayaks used are especially designed for fishing, very stable, and use a clever pedal system that is much faster and less tiring than using a paddle. Your hands will be free to fish. Your guide has been out countless times, and has his favorite areas, and always come back with fish. However, fishing is unpredictable and, although unlikely, there is always a small chance of catching nothing.

Abu Dhabi is blessed with some excellent fishing. The shallow water, mangroves and channels hide many fish, some of which are quite large. The best fun comes when you hook something over 2 kg and you have to play the fish while the fish pulls you along sometimes for a long way. There is also a lot of skill involved to be effective and you get a good deal of satisfaction when you find fish.

Over the last few years your guide has figured out the best bait and techniques to use, plus the most productive fishing spots. Sometimes you can travel several kilometers in a single trip depending on the species being targeted.

Other times it is quite nice to pull up on a small island and watch the herons and flamingos also fishing. There is also the chance of seeing dolphins. Early mornings are especially peaceful and you can get quite close to the flamingos if you are quiet.

All fishing equipment will be provided from rods to lures. Life jackets are provided. An icebox will be filled with cold water. You are advised to bring some snacks, sun cream and light clothing, preferably long trousers and a light top with long sleeves, good hat to protect against the sun.

It was my second fishing trip with Martin and only my second kayak fishing. It was really fun and relaxing. You really feel in contact with the Nature. But overall Martin knows where to find out some good fish for dinner. For sure I’ll go again. 2015-10-24

One word – Brilliant! Totally different to everything I’ve done before. One trip isn’t enough. Martin knows the mangroves like the back of his hand. We targeted Grunters, then Bream and finally Garfish. Light tackle means lots of fun. The kayaks are very stable and after you land your first fish everything comes together. The kayaks are effortless to get about in, allowing you to approach marks you wouldn’t get to any other way. Brilliant. 2015-09-29

this was the 1st time to go fishing on a kayak. the trip was simply awesome, all the credit go to captain Martin. I was there 15 min before the start time, the kayaks were already in the water. the kayaks and fishing rods were in mint condition. Captain Martin knew the area like the back of his hand, seems like captain Martin was out there countless times. Martin is a fishing enthusiast that you’ll enjoy talking to, he’s been fishing since he was 9 years old. Martin fished in different places around the world, I recall him tell me about his fishing experience in Thailand and Scandinavian countries. I got 3 stingrays (which we released), one of them managed to pull off two kayaks out of the anchor (that was the best moment in that trip) Martin advised me what to do at that time which really helped regaining control over the stingray. Other than stingrays we managed to get big silver grunts. I totally recommend this trip for people who want to take fishing into a totally different level. 2015-09-12

The trip was absolutely epic. Great spots, great kayaks, and a fantastic guide. Martin was very knowledgeable about the fish in that area and delivered a fantastic fishing trip as promised. His kayaks are in great condition and so is his gear. I would absolutely recommend this trip (mangroves specifically) for anyone who’s been wanting to try something new. The location makes you feel like you’re left the UAE for a short while. I can’t wait to go again. 2015-09-11
