Details about fishing in Dubai

Fishing is regulated in Dubai, meaning that non-residents can only engage in this practice through a licensed vendor who has the proper fishing license.

This is why booking a fishing trip with an experienced services provider, such as our team, is mandatory as interested tourists are prohibited from fishing on their own accord.

The United Arab Emirates has implemented clear rules on fishing for the purpose of banning illegal, unregulated, and unreported fishing, as well as overfishing.

The following regulations for fishing are important:

  • The annual fishing calendar: for example, the fishing of shark species not subject to a fishing ban is not permitted in March, April, May and June and the fishing of sardines and anchovies is not permitted in July, August and September.
  • The minimum length of the fishes: 36 cm for the Farsh fish, 60 cm for the Sekal, 35 cm for the Senksar, 24 cm for the Safi and Yamah fish and others;
  • Restricted species: the list includes several species of sharks, rays, sawfishes (carpenter sharks, a family of rays), wedgefishes (rays of the family Rhinidae) or guitarfishes (also a family of rays, the Rhinobatidae).
  • Safe sailing: issues concerning boat lights, engines, spare fuel, the use of navigational devices and others; our team follows all these rules.

In addition to the requirements listed above, our yacht charter in Dubai team only sails with fishing boats that are properly licensed and registered with the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment.

Our team observes all of these rules for fishing imposed by the Government, as well as the laws (Ministerial Decrees) that apply in this particular field.

Fishing is one of the most common types of activities to engage in while booking a yacht charter in Dubai, however, it is definitely not the only one.

Booking a fishing trip can be a relaxing option to spend a day if you are visiting the Emirates.

It is a suitable activity both for novices and for experienced fishers who will thus have the chance to fish in the Persian Gulf.

Our experienced team can help you schedule and organize a memorable yacht trip in Dubai, complete with fishing and other types of activities such as different water sports (jet skis or scuba diving).
