Dubai should be on every anglers bucket list and is ideally suited as a Seychelles add on. Most fishermen heading to the Seychelles next year will be using Dubai as a hub, so why not take a couple of extra days and hit some queenfish on the way down as a warm up or on the way back as an after party? The waters of the gulf are both rich and giving so with the Burg Al Arab and the Dubai skyline as your backdrop, target a plethora of species on fly or on conventional gear.

As Dubai is one of the largest hubs worldwide, arranging a stopover en-route to your destination is straightforward.  Dubai is one of those rare destinations where you can go out fishing, safe in the knowledge that your non-fishing family or companion have plenty to do and see … chances are you won’t be missed.

Oceantactive, Dubai, Aardvark McLeodWith the sheer number of flights in and out of Dubai every day, and departures from all the UK’S major airports, finding a flight to fit into your schedule for a long weekend away shouldn’t be an onerous task.

Longer stays open up a huge world of options in addition to fitting in some fishing. From hotels in the heart of the city to romantic days and nights in the desert it is not difficult to “wow” your loved ones. The majority of Dubai’s hotels are a short distance from the airport with an enormous range of styles and locations to chose from. From the impressive man made Palm Jumeirah with its water park, private beach and Dolphin Bay to the small, boutique hotels in the old part of the city there is something for every taste and every budget. Splitting the city is Dubai Creek and north of the creek you will find the Gold Souk, Spice Souk and the Deira Fish Market. The Corniche winds its way along the waterfront and is a wonderful place for a walk, as are the labyrinth of narrow lanes leading to the souks. On the South side of the creek, visit the many historic sites, museums and buildings, art galleries and cafes. Away from the beaches and souks, Wild Wadi Waterpark is a popular family destination as is Dubai Mall, the largest in the world and while there, why not visit Dubai Ski; enjoy the icy slopes …… in one of the hottest climates in the world.
