Mafia Island

Big Game Fishing & Diving

Only 40 minutes south of Dar es Salaam, is one of the most exiting big game fishing and diving locations in the world.

The virtually unfinished waters of the island, abound with a rich variety of fish of tremendous size and weight, many of them being great fighters. Catches include marlin, sailfish, shark, tunny, king-fish, barracuda, rock cod, dolphin, horse mackerel, wahoo five fingered jack and fimbo. The main fishing season is from September to March, although fishing is possible all year round, inside the reef and channel.
