If you choose to go on a fishing safari, we have several mother boats that we can arrange for your comfort. One of them, for example, is a 25-meter 5-star boat. This boat is equipped with GPS, fish finder, generator, radio and complete mapping of the Red Sea. The boat has three rooms with 2 single beds each and a suite with a double bed and private bathroom, a shower/toilet combination, 2 Mann 450 HP diesel engines, a spacious foredeck, aft deck, terrace and dining area above deck in the shade. There is also a full kitchen and a good chef so this boat is perfectly equipped to organize a fishing safari of a week or more!
During your stay on the mother boat, all meals, soft drinks, water, coffee and tea are included. On the spacious shaded upper deck, you can relax with a drink after a hard day of fishing and watch the sun go down and admire the stars. The boat is sailed by an experienced captain who knows these waters well.
There are two fishing boats available to actively go popping and jigging. They are equipped with all desired (safety) equipment and are perfect for this fishing. They offer maximum fishing comfort due to the walk around construction.
The Carla is a boat that fits 5 anglers max. It is a 27 foot Wahoo EFS type walkaround centre console equipped with two Suzuki F175 HP 4 Stroke outboard engines. It features a Simrad Go 9 Fish Finder, a live well for baitfish and Cannon Down-riggers for optimal trolling and 25 rod holders.
The Reefer is a boat that fits 3 anglers max. It is a 20 foot Sea Hunt Triton type walkaround centre console with a Yamaha F150 HP 4 Stroke outboard engine. It is equipped with a Simrad NSS Evo 3 Fish Finder, Airmar 1KW Low/High Chirp Transducer, has live well for bait fish, 27 rod holders and Cannon Down-riggers for optimal trolling.
During the season the boats are stationed in three different ports (El Gouna, New Marina and Sal Jasheesh Marina) around Hurghada depending on the season in order to fish closer to the best spots. But with the private transfer, this is not a problem and you will quickly get to the desired port to start your fishing day.
For this fishing it is possible to bring your own equipment. For popping, a rod of around 2.4 to 2.7 metres and a casting weight from 100 to 200 grams is required to be able to cast the desired distances to the reefs. For jigging a short sturdy boat rod of max 1.8 metre from 30 to 50 lbs is required and max 1.8 metre length. This in combination with a very fast retrieving reel and a sturdy braided line of around 30 kilos of breaking strength. As a leader a 150 lbs shock leader of 1 to 1.3 meters is used.
Next to this heavy equipment it is of course also nice to bring lighter material for example for slow jigging, and lighter jigging and casting rods for chasing smaller types of fish.
If you do not have your own equipment, it is also possible to rent it. The materials used for this are high quality jigging, popper and trolling rods & reels. The reels are Shimano Stella and the rods are high-end Japanese rods. Think Carpenter, Jigging Master, Shimano etc. In addition to this basic set up, you can also use various jigs, poppers, stickbaits, leaders and other terminal tackle at additional cost. Generally one type of fishing is scheduled because the spots for this vary. So you need max 1 set per day. For a 6 day fishing vacation the cost of the rental for 1 person is there for € 300,-.
You have to fly to Hurghada and we can off course arrange that for you. There you will be picked up and brought to the boat or hotel (depending on fishing safari or daytrips) for the first night. On the motherboat you will stay 7 nights with full board and sleep in double rooms. After leaving the harbour in the first morning you can fish 24/7 until you return in Hurghada after 6 days of fishing.
When you are staying in the hotel we can arrange you a halfboard or breakfast-only solution. The choice is up to you. Lunch is served on board the fishing boat. Also we have different options with regard to the level of hotels you can stay in and the price that goes with it.
Both trips can be organized for 2 to 8 anglers. Please note that this is also a perfect location for the partner or the rest of the family to relax on the beach or by the pool at the resort while the fishermen or -women enjoy their hobby.
Depending on the number of participants, choice of boat and periods, this trip is available from 1.495,- euro per person excluding flight for 6 days of fishing. This includes: local transport, private fishing charter, hotel with double rooms, lunches including water and softdrinks on the boat, harbour fees, fishing licences, local taxes etc.
