Owner description: It's all about having fun under the sun! Go Fishing Tours AKA "Go Fishing Dubai" started in 2010 out of passion for fishing in Dubai and what it brought along ; that sense of freedom being in the open sea, that fresh ocean breeze that brought a smile to your face, and that feeling of being on a vacation from your mind is the reason why we are still operational after all these years! Thanks to all the support from our visitors we are the only fishing chartering company in UAE that is 5 star rated with over 200 excellent rated reviews and a multiple "Certificate of Excellence" award winner on TripAdvisor. At Go Fishing you do not need to be an extreme fishing fanatic to go on a tour with us, our highly trained staff will guide you on your fishing trip, and get you reeling in that fish. All our staff have had years of experience fishing in these waters, and are all keen fishermen with first aid qualifications. Our fishing charters can take a maximum capacity of 8 people per boat, and all trips includes refreshments, snacks, bait and fishing equipment. All our boats are equipped with a toilet, sonar, GPS, and all the safety equipment as per UAE coast guard regulations. Our tours come with a warning label! This can get addictive and you can turn into an “aquaholic"! We have numerous packages to choose from depending on your preference and the occasion. Whether you are looking to go out on our “Big Game Fishing” session and get some crazy pictures, or looking to have a fishing competition and end up BBQing your catch on a luxury yacht (all in the ambiance of good music of course), then Go Fishing Tours is the place to be! Our main concern is that you enjoy your time with us, we will fish for that “content feeling” from you!

“The Best Fishing!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Thank you for giving us this experience - the best fishing tour we had - Ever!
The boat, the crew, the fish, the service - all are just outstanding!
And Barbeque on the island - just perfect! I never thought that it is possible to organize it in such a neat and comfortable manner!
More to it, I was worried about my small son to be part of this tour and his security on the boat and island - but it just went so smooth and absolutely with Zero issues!
Amazing company! Amazing Captain! Really comfortable boat, even for a small baby!
Go for it!

“It should be called Go Party Tours!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Jameel and his crew made January 1st 2013 even more memorable than our New Year's Eve party the night before. His secret formula? He took me and a group of friends on his cosy little boat to a small island in front of the Dubai coast. He set up a barbecue and his sound system and all we had to do was plug in our own tunes to create the most chilled out and upbeat party we ever had. Dancing barefoot in the sand, while watching the sun set on the Burj Khalifa, was just magical. Meanwhile he supplied us with fresh barbecue treats and an epidemic smile. If you're looking for a big glamorous luxury yacht style thing, move along. If you want to take your friends on an intimate party trip with super friendly hosts then look no further: with Go Fishing you'll have the time of your life.

“Wonderful and exciting day!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Around new year we had a very nice fishing trip with Jameel and his assistent. We chose the 'big game fishing', which seemed to be the best choice we could have made. Very exciting to see all the big fishes we caught! Our son is a hobby-fisherman, and Jameel supported him very well on a professional level. But also the rest of the family had a great time. After the big game fishing, there was time for the 'regular' deep sea fishing, which was also very nice. We caught a lot of fishes, and the enthousiasm of Jameel and his assistant are very supporting. We had a very nice and exciting day. When we ever get back to Dubai, we will get back to Jameel for a fishing trip.
By the way, this was our second trip with Jameel. Although we were staying in Abu Dhabi this time, we went to Dubai for the fishing trip!

“Customer service!!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

I read a lot of bad reviews for other fishing tours and this place stood out, so we booked with them and we were NOT disappointed!! Super friendly crew, well prepared and absolutely dedicated to us having a good time and catching fish! We caught big barracudas and did not go home till EVERYBODY had pulled at least one into the boat! Will go for these guys again..

“Keeps getting better and better”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

I went fishing with Go Fishing Tours on Jan 19 with my family and some friends. We opted for the fishing trip followed by BBQ as we had never done the BBQ trip before with Jameel. We were so pleased we did because not only is he is a fantastic cook but he set up a fantastic camp site with banging tunes that got the old folks up and dancing. It was hilarious and so much fun. Thanks again for an amazing day out Jameel and we will of course see you again soon.
