Prepare For Pleasure and Adventure Both

Indeed, deep sea fishing in Dubai is not only a fun getaway, rather it is a blend of excitements adjoined with adventures. So, before you sail out on a deep-sea fishing trip, it is good to know the certain risks associated with deep-sea fishing and prepare for every eventuality that may crop out and also help you have an amazing experience without any worries. In the following lines, we have tried to bring together some of the precautions that should be taken when planning the next time, you are out for a fishing trip.

Take Care of Yourself First

We know that you are not going to forget safety precautions against Covid-19, even if you do so, still there would be notices at every place which would keep on reminding you. We want to remind you here is that you can easily get sunburnt when out in the high tides and scorching sunlight especially when you are out in open waters for fishing in Dubai, remember to wear a thin, broad hat whose weaving is breathable, and not those typical P-caps, and also good sun protection. Further putting on a nice fishing vest, better a full sleeves shirt to cover your whole body, would give your extra protection and complement the occasion as well. A piece of early advice here is that all of those members onboard who don’t know swimming shall wear life jackets as soon as they get on board the yacht or at least when they stand closer to gunwale i.e., the sides of the yacht.

Protecting Your Body’s Inside is Equally Essential

It is good that you have got sun protection, sunscreen and all essentials to protect yourself, however, all this stuff is going to protect your body from outside but what about taking care of your internal body system also. Many people are prone to developing seasickness, especially when going out in deep waters. Try to avoid catching seasickness as much as you can do, otherwise, the pleasure would turn into pain not only for you but all of your mates. Do take along necessary medicines from any of the pharmacies close to you and better have them before you get on board the yacht. Keep some of it with you during sailing also as your fellow may need it, no matter even he used to be a habitual or seasoned skipper.

Learn About the Safety Equipment Available Onboard

Reputable yacht rental firms, like Cozmo Yachts in Dubai, provides the fishing charter that is equipped with all necessary Personnel Protection Equipment (PPE) which include life jackets, one each for every person on board, fire extinguishers, a bright, florescent, highly visible flag SOS situations and EPIRB (emergency signal) or flares to be used in an emergency. Usually, all of the crew on board are aware of these PPEs or at least one of them, who is responsible to manage them. However, it is better to learn ahead about all of these from that crew member so that in case you get in an emergency and the responsible crew member is not available for immediate assister, anyone from the passengers could swiftly locate and utilize. It would expedite the rescue efforts and everyone would remain safe also.

Crews’ instructions are for your benefit

Commercial luxury yachts operating in Dubai prefer to keep experienced captains and crews and also keep them trained to ensure everyone’s safety onboard, especially when away from the coast into deep oceans. Their training includes knowledge of safety guidelines and awareness about the local rules & regulations. It is not just they are there to provide you with information regarding the different fishing spots in Dubai and help you handle the fishing equipment, but their main responsibility is to keep you safe from any danger. In exchange for this, you are advised to be gentle with them, listen to what they recommend and do abide by their instructions. It would make the onboard environment pleasant; the crew would not just listen to you as a part of their job but naturally, they would be glad to serve you and go some extra miles out of cooperation.

Care For the Next Comers, Species and Humans Both

The rules & regulations are set to keep the environment healthy and safe for all and the same is with the fishing rules. Countries across the globe have implemented fishing rules for catching fish within their limit to maintain the fish stocks and allow the fishers of next generations to have a healthy ecosystem for them also. So, remember to follow the fishing rules set by the emirates or limits you are fishing. Gather all the relevant information from the official websites of that Emirates or at least ask the crew available on board. By the way, the crew themselves would also guide you about it when you get onboard. Further, to be decent passengers, you should remember to carry out all the trash, of food & drinks that you carried on board with you, and dispose them off properly instead of dropping them on the yacht or making the Dubai waters filthy. For all our ignorant fellow shall remember that they may be fined for noncompliance.
