If you’ve never been big game fishing, then get yourself down to your nearest harbour and get out on one of the many fishing charter boats. It’s not particularly expensive, and with a group of friends, it can be a cracking day out.
The seas of the UAE are teeming with life, and in many places you can actually see the fish leaping above the surface. So, no matter if you are a first-time fisherman or a professional angler with many a tall tale, you should be able to catch something in the warm Arabian waters.
The best time to go deep sea fishing in Dubai is between January and May. Plus, you’ll need to get up early, starting off around 6 AM. In the winter months (Jan-Mar) there is also quite a decent catch in the afternoon (2-6pm) as well.
