How often would you have thought about just taking off in a sea vessel and probably get a catch or two from the deep sea? The adrenaline rush of fishing in deep waters need not be restricted to Andaman Islands anymore. Thanks to a deep sea fishing company, BlueWaters, you can try it out here. Owned by two Bengaluru-based brothers Sangeeth and Santhosh, the company has been organizing deep sea fishing excursions since 2010. “Till about 6-8 months ago, our primary clientele were NRIs, expats and foreigners. But now we get bookings from families, college students, office colleagues, young couples and even senior citizens, who like to engage in some adventure over the weekends,” says Mukundan Sampath, who oversees the operations in Chennai.
Operating from the Royal Madras Yacht club located in Chennai Port, the company is well-equipped with two speedboats, viz., Sea Rocket and Sea Hawk, which are fitted with state-of-the-art equipment. Each of the boats can comfortably accommodate six guests along with crew members.
“Our clients get the rare opportunity to experience fishing at a ship wreck close to the harbor. This ship remains underneath the ocean since 1982. Our team will drive you into the deep sea in search of the most sought after game fishes, including the Barracuda, Giant Travelly, King Mackerel, Wahoo, Sail Fish, Barramundi, etc. Almost 90 per cent of the time anglers catch one fish or the other weighing nothing less than 5kg. Recently somebody managed to catch a fish weighing 30 kgs, can you imagine!” adds Mukundan. They ensure that guests wear life jackets and are constantly monitored by ground support staff with standby rescue boats.
One can start off by taking a 2-hour package that costs Rs 10,000 (for 4 people). They even have options of availing 8 hour packages and even a one-hour joyride to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
