Indian Ocean Deep Sea Fishing
Madukha Tours arranges deep sea fishing expeditions, experiences that add to the wildlife safari, and which will live forever. It is often stated as a fact that possibilities of catching a fish is endless because fish have a mere 3-second memory hold, after it is released. The diverse abundance of marine life on the East African coast ascertains this theory. Kenya's fishing season normally takes place between the months of August and April of the following year, after the monsoon season; this allows the temperate currents to mix, and yield large number of fish.
About The Boats
The boats used on your fishing expedition are: a 33 feet custom built Rybovich Sportfisher, with twin 140 H.P diesel engines and Tuna Tower; it is equipped with first class tackle, including Penn International and Shimano reels, Downrigger fish finder, VHF radio, and all other necessary amenities for a successful Kenya deep sea fishing safari. Or the "T.T", 25-feet Chris craft cabin cruiser with a fly bridge and having similar equipment as the Sportfisher.
About The Fishing
A variety of methods are used to fish; this depends on your preference and the type of catch you want. These are:
Kenya Day Angling - Fishing
Anglers have an excellent fishing experience on Mombasa's North or South Coast for billfishes, namely the Marlin and the Indo-Pacific Sailfish. The Blue Marlin has gained a good reputation for easy catch on the Kenyan Coast by the Europeans, who are often pictured in local papers boasting their catch. Marlins weighing between 500 and 1000 lbs are often caught. The day fishing expedition starts with your pickup at 7.30 a.m. from your hotel and lasts till the late afternoon or dusk, depending on your program. This type of fishing is most preferred by our customers.
Kenya Fly-Rod Fishing
Fly-fishing is popular among skilled rod fishers who want to attempt a Sailfish catch. Fishes weighing between 500 and 1000 lbs. are often caught. The day fishing expedition starts with your pickup at 7.30 a.m. from your hotel and lasts till the afternoon or dusk, depending on your program.
Kenya Deep Bottom Fishing
Families who take the day off to relax in the calm deep blue waters of the Indian Ocean often select the deep bottom fishing. This allows for complete privacy, family relaxation time and as well as an excellent fishing trip. A number of fishes can be caught like tuna, barracuda, snappers, kingfish, skipjack and other tropical fishes. The day fishing expedition starts with your pickup at 7.30 a.m. from your hotel, and lasts till the afternoon or dusk, depending on your program.

Preserving Fish For Tomorrows Game: Tag And Release Policy
Madukha Tours believes in the preservation and conservation of the African wildlife, marine life, and its natural resources. Since deep fishing can be detrimental to existence of some fishes, specifically the billfishes, we advise our clients of policies recommended by the International Billfish Foundation and Kenya Fishing Association.
We recommend for all billfishes caught on the East African Coast, the fish be tagged, if possible, and released back in the sea.
Before releasing the fish, the following can be done:
Take a picture or movie camera recording;
A record weighing fish will be published in the papers.
Fish is weighed, and approximate measurement taken.
Details of the skipper, address and related information.
Position on the Kenyan coast where the fish was caught, G.P.S location marked, tagging whenever possible, and then releasing the fish back into the sea.
