Hi guys,
I would love to have some company while kayak fishing especially that I've never tried in Dubai and don't know where it's allowed or not and if I do need a license or not.
I need also some guidance and tips about the lures and when and where to use each.
I used to kayak fishing in Sharjah open sea but don't want to waste more time there now that I got a new Mirage Sport and would love to try it in Dubai.
My number is 0529289894. Let's whatsapp.

Some questions, will I need a license to kayak fish in Dubai?
how is it at the black palace beach? is it rough water and high waves even if it's little windy? You know kayaking with waves is not fun especially when fishing.
What lures do you suggest to use? do you jig or troll? do you use live baits such as shrimps and sardines?
Any info you may provide would be of great help to me and others reading here.

Thank you.

Hi. I just bought my kayak(though used) I want to find fishing buddies. But I can't fish in Dubai coz they need license there. I'm planning to go fishing in Ajman.

Early morning bro.

Kim Eugene 6 years ago

I also just started kayak fishing
Seems not so active at this moment
But hope we can enjoy together
I may go to al bateen and mussafah for fishing on early morning or late afternoon of weekends and weekday also during ramadan

Quick question. Can i use eastern mangrove dock? I believe that fishing is not allowed but just kayaking with my own
Hope to meet you guys.

Hi Basheer,

When is the next Kayak fishing competition?

Missed the April one .....

JvK 6 years ago

Are you guys having any luck in summer, the queenfish and kingfish seem to have disappeared?

Saw some porpoises the other day, not sure if it's a good or bad sign?

Heard about a lot of Tuna and dolphin fish being around in Fujeirah and Abu Dhabi.

Have any of you caught tuna of your kayak in Dubai?

mammassan 6 years ago

Hi brother good morning

im planning to buy kayak so there is licence for kayaking in uae ?

JvK 6 years ago


As far as i know, in Dubai for kayaks its considered to be inshore fishing and you need to apply through the dubai municipality website.

You fill in your details and upload your documents, once your license is ready they will send you an email and you go pick it up.
Simple as that.

Do you need a license for kayak fishing

Muhammad Roshin 1 year ago

Hey i am new to this thing. I am planning to buy a kayak for fishing, can u guys help me with things i should buy for the kayak and any information regarding setting it up..

Mark Totzke 1 year ago

Hi Muhammad Roshin,

When you buy a new kayak I would highly recommend to buy a pedal drive kayak for fishing. It makes fishing a lot more enjoyable when you have your hands free.
Check out the video about the kayak we use here:

You might not be able to buy the same kayak in the UAE, but perhaps something similar.
If you use a pedal drive kayak you also don't really need an anchor. Especially if you're planning on lure fishing.
I would however suggest to add a fish finder. Either install a small fish finder like a Lowrance 4x for example or you can use a portable fish finder such as a Deeper Pro, we also made a review video about our Deeper here:

Then you need a few more essentials. A life jacket of course, perhaps a VHF for safety, high vis clothing if there's lot's of boat traffic and I would recommend to use light tackle for fishing off a kayak.
In terms of reels I really like the Penn Spinfisher 3500 reel or the Penn Slammer 3500. They are waterproof and this is invaluable when kayak fishing. That means you don't need to service them after each session.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
