The Soudan Bank is an underwater plateau located about 100 nautical miles north-east of Mauritius. There are actually 5 banks, which extend over an area of approximately 100 km². The average water depth is about 50 meters, while the bank quickly drops to 3000 meters on its steep slopes. The fish population here is incredibly large and varied. The bank is known above all for the capital Dogtooth Tuna, which are caught here regularly.

On the trip we offer, we will be 2 long tours, each with 4 nights / 3 days at sea. In between there is a break of 2.5 days that we will spend in a hotel to relax a little from the rigors of fishing. Excursions on the island are of course also possible. 
 
The journey to the bank and back takes around 12 hours each and takes place at night. That means we leave Mauritius on the first day in the late afternoon, then arrive on Soudan Bank very early the next morning and then have 3 days with 12 hours each from sunrise to nightfall. At the end of the 3rd day we go back at night and we arrive in Mauritius in the morning.

AQUILA

The AQUILA is a 53 foot Sportfisherman yacht, which was specially designed for fishing here off Mauritius. It is very seaworthy and is powered by 2 x 370 HP Yanmar engines. Safety equipment such as VHF radio, satellite telephone, life jackets + life raft are a matter of course. Shower + toilet on board. 3 cabins.

Big Game fishing gear (2 x 130 lbs, 3 x 80 lbs and 2 x 50 lbs) for trolling is on board. Lighter equipment (jigging / popping) must be brought.
 

We only have 2 hotel nights for the guided tour for single drivers during the break between the two fishing trips. Here we will be accommodated in a good middle class hotel or an apartment house in the Cap Malheureux region (northern tip of Mauritius).

Hosted tour for single drivers to Soudan Bank / Mauritius
