Passionate anglers from around the world visit Maldives to fish in the most pristine and remote areas while enjoying the world-renowned Maldivian hospitality. Equa Reef fishing speed boat captain and his expert team are from Addu Atoll, the southernmost constellation of the archipelago, majestically sitting south of the Equator. These expert fishermen have been fishing since their childhood, proficient in both traditional line-and-hook style and modern sports fishing. The team is thoroughly knowledgeable and ensures tip-top service and unforgettable fishing experience.
