Politically administered by Mauritius, the islands were probably discovered by Arab seafarers as early as the 7th century and were then controlled by Portugal, the Netherlands, France and Great Britain over the centuries. Only since 1968 did St. Brandon count as part of the independent Mauritius.
For many years this archipelago has been an absolute restricted area for tourists and anglers – but fortunately there are now a few, few dates when this area was made accessible. It is well known that paradises are seldom located directly at the motorway exit – so getting to such an extremely unusual area is somewhat more difficult. You fly to Mauritius, spend the night there and then board the “AQUILA” (see also Soudan Bank Tours). After about 24-26 hours drive you will reach the archipelago. Note: There are 2 double cabins on the AQUILA for the crossing – this means that the first 4 registrations are accommodated in the cabins – the other two participants can spend the night in the salon (sofa).
You fish on site mainly from smaller, open boats (2 anglers + guide each) – depending on the weather, either inside the lagoon or outside on the reef. We usually fish with 3 teams of 2 anglers, of which 2 teams occupy the boats and 1 team fishes from the shore.
In the lagoon, lighter lures are mainly used for Trevallies, Bonefish, Permits etc. – if you want, you can try your luck with the fly. Then on the outer reef with big poppers and stickbaits on Giant Trevally. The “AQUILA” is always ready for offshore fishing (extra costs), insofar as the weather permits.
From Mauritius to St. Brandon we will use the ‘AQUILA’. On request, this boat is also available on site for offshore trips.
