Best charter in Dubai without a Question, quality captain crew and gear with quality spots. Captain Hisham is very knowledgeable about the waters and will put you on fish. Friendly for beginners and enticing for seasoned fisherman (Photo is my catch alone)

I came to Dubai with my family on a vacation, and I wanted to go fishing. After few calls and contacts I contacted Hisham and arrange a fishing tour. If I may say, I'm quite expirienced angler and spinner, and I was not looking for usual fishing tour. Hisham's boat is really clean and powerfull, and a crew member really tried to help on a every single step. I met Hisham just for half of the day, but I felt like I know him all my life. He is a really nice person, and profesional fisherman. We were burning petrol like crazy in search for schools of fish, and he did not spare a single liter in search for fish. He provide me one of the best fishings in my life. Also, I did not bring my fishing gear with me, as Hisham had full equipment on the boat. You can check my caches on that day on my instagram profile @igor_podravac

First contacted Nisham about fishing in Dubai 2 weeks before my holiday and from the replies I could tell straight away he new his fishing. I am a experienced boat angler from the UK with my own boat and was not just looking for tourism fishing. His prompt replies, advice on tackle and information where first class. Booked trip and went fishing 5th sept 19. Nisham kept us updated with weather right up to day of trip we actually put the trip back a day due to favourable weather conditions .Boat is very well kept, fast and comfortable to fish off. Tackle is good quality and up to the job. We tried inside marks first to no avail but credit to Nisham he found the fish trying various marks and we had excellent sport with Barracuda , incredible amounts of queen fish and golden trevalli to top it off. Always sign of a good skipper never stops till he's found the fish. Also a shout of thanks to the crewman never stopped all day helping us out making bottom ends up and taking fish off. Also when you book 6 hrs fishing you get 6 hours fishing, no rushing in which is great even offered us some free time fishing great gesture. To sum up this is not tourism fishing it's real fishing which was what I was looking for. I studied a lot of charters in Dubai before booking and I would look no further than this boat top draw great people, book it. Look forward to my next trip.

We had a great experience on our trip to the grand mosque. Comfortable and efficient transport to and from our hotel. Usama was an excellent guide providing local information and moving at a good pace throughout the day.

I’ve done a ton of fishing, and a have travelled the world spearfishing. From the moment I first made contact, Hisham was very professional. He didn’t push me for business, but rather took the time to explain that the conditions and that fish I was after hadn’t come into season yet and I was best to wait. We’re talking Dubai here, where people will say anything to get your money. Not Hisham. To me this was a really food sign. It’s very rare you find a fishing charter that is all about fishing first, business second. Not saying others are bad, I’ve made some really good friends with many charter operators over the years. It’s just a rare distinction that I noticed. When it came to finally getting on the boat with Hisham, I was again pleasantly surprised. In Dubai, you can’t get anyone to do anything before 9am. So when Hisham asked me to meet him at 6am, I was very happy. When I saw his boat, I asked him if it was brand new. It looks brand new, it’s polished clean and his fishing tools are laid out like a dentist does. His boat is 15 years old, but there is not a mark on it. Hisham is meticulous with details. All his fishing lures are lined up on a shadow board and his rods/reels are top of the line. This is not “tourist” quality. This is a passionate fisherman’s pride and joy. Normally, you can expect a charter to take you to a single overfished spot, spend hours trying to distract you while you reel in undersized fish on a rusty reel with 100lb birdnested nylon before getting sent home early with a bad sunburn. In my trip with Hisham, he took me to about 5 different wrecks and 3 different shelves. The man has hundreds of marks on his GPS of places that are teeming with fish. His knowledge of spearfishing is great, he used to be a free diving instructor and is obsessive of safety. I booked the boat to myself, and he organised someone to be my buddy since Hisham’s sinuses were a bit shot from the flu. Normally if this happens, you get some guy who basically swims off on you and shoots all the fish he can. Earl (who also works at the local spearfishing shop) watched over me the entire time. I can keep going on and on about how good Hisham is, but I’ll leave you with this. If you LOVE fishing, then go with him. If you want a party boat, maybe choose someone else. But if you want the highest chance of catching a dream fish in Dubai (spearing or line fishing), then I wholeheartedly recommend Hisham. He’s like the business class of charters. More personalised and purposeful. Once you’ve gone with him, everyone else is economy class.
