Relax and explore the idyllic blue waters of the Arabian Gulf on a fishing trip with family and friends: an ideal way to escape the hustle and bustle of Doha' s traffic and crowded malls. The calm seas and subtropical climate provide ideal fishing conditions from October to May in particular, due to the abundance of plankton in the water and these months don't normally have high temperatures either.
Qatar offers many outdoor activities to enjoy its natural beauty and a trip out on the sea is one of them.
Fishing was an integral part of local people's lives in the past and is still enjoyed by Qatari's and tourists, who come from all over the world to catch the famous hammour and sailfish every season. So why not rent a private boat for half a day to experience it yourself?
The Diplomatic Club, a private and exclusive club located between Katara Cultural Village and The Pearl-Qatar, offers top notch sports and leisure facilities to non-members too. Among these activities there is a four hour fishing trip, which costs around QR 1,500 for non-members including the rental of a boat with its very own Captain. What a great opportunity to ride the waves of The West Bay Lagoon in style, whilst being in safe hands. Your experienced Captain will have an excellent knowledge of the best local fishing spots, so he' ll make sure you won't be coming back empty handed.
This boat trip will be an exhilarating experience for the rest of the family too as they will be able to enjoy the scenic coastline with sandy beaches and the beautiful skyline of the city in the background.
There is nothing better than a day out spent in good company and nothing to end it better than the taste of your very own freshly caught cooked fish!
