While you may think all the best things to do in Maldives take place during the day, that is not quite the case; providing an unforgettable voyage, sunset fishing lets you witness a sunset and even fish for your dinner!

The Idyllic Setting

Part of the joys of this activity is the chance to immerse yourself in a breathtaking setting. In the Maldives, island resorts that offer sunset fishing will generally take you out to sea in the late afternoon; you will be able to view a magical sunset, have time to appreciate nature’s beauty and may see dolphins too!

A Local Experience

For something truly distinctive, certain resorts the likes of Naladhu Private Island Maldivesprovide a local “flavour” to your adventure; you will get to sail on a boat known as a dhoni and learn the art of traditional line-fishing. From trolling to jigging and casting to popping, there are many techniques to try.

A Tug of War Awaits!

Those venturing out to sea and waiting for that tug on the line have a chance to bait a variety of fish species. With some patience and perseverance, you may be able to do “battle” and emerge victorious against snappers, mahi-mahi, groupers, tuna, wahoo and more.

Rewarding Experiences

Even if you do not end up with any fish, the experience in itself is bound to be memorable. However, for those who are successful, some sunset fishing expeditions will give you the chance to have your catch cooked or barbequed for dinner!
