Captain Hook's "Mahi Mahi"

Come and explore the rich waters of the Bay of Bengal in style with Havelock Island’s premier professional fishing guide. Aboard Captain Hook’s “Mahi Mahi”, you’ll have everything you need for a productive and fun-filled day to sea, as you go after some of the ocean’s most prized game fish.

Captain Qutub Taher and his wife Nafisa promise a trip of the highest standards. They promise to do everything to make sure you leave with a smile on your face, by providing a personal touch to every aspect of the setup.

The 32’ custom-built center console was made locally. With plenty of space for up to 4 guests, she promises a smooth ride to the productive fishing grounds, as the crew waits on you hand and foot. Take advantage of the free drinks, hearty lunch, and make yourself at home.

Golden and Bluefin Trevallies, Snappers, Groupers, Wahoo, Jacks, Bonito, and a range of Tuna call these waters home. Get ready for a fishing experience like no other, as you put your fishing skills to the test against these monsters. Try popping, speed jigging, and live baiting to entice the bite of fish from the reefs to the deep seas.

After working up a sweat, you’ll even have the chance of hopping in the water. Go snorkeling and discover another side to these stunning waters, getting close and personal to these beautiful creatures.

At the end of your trip, you’ll even be able to take a couple of smaller fish back to shore for a delicious treat. What better way to end the day than by savoring the fruits of your labor over a hearty meal on the beach? 

All you need to do before coming aboard is to grab your fishing license at a cost of $40. Capt. Qutub asks that you join him in Captain Hook’s Activity Center a day before your trip to finalize everything, and away you go.

Captain Hook’s “Mahi Mahi” promises to make your holiday come to life. Hop aboard and experience the fishing trip of a lifetime!

I came to the Andaman Islands from Bangalore to work for a Grouper fish export company, and just fell in love with the Islands. I found sportfishing to be much more satisfying than the company work, and decided to start a charter for sportfishing called Captain Hook's Sportfishing! My wife and I work together to ensure that our charter is operated as a fishing enthusiast's outfit rather then a business – this allows our passion to shine through. We also operate a fishing lodge at the sea shore on Havelock Island, where we are based. Come aboard and get ready to explore these waters with us. Tight lines!
