Big game sport fishing Gran Canaria
Enjoy a thrilling day of sport fishing in Gran Canaria, leaving from the Pasito Blanco pier, located between Maspalomas and Puerto Rico. You can come alone or with friends, can share the boat with other clients or can rent the entire boat in order to go deep sea fishing in Gran Canaria on a private charter.
The abundance of fish in Gran Canaria allows us to fish all year round. In the autumn and winter, it’s common to catch fish such as snappers, groupers, mackerel, seabass, eels, morays and blacktail combers.
And in spring and summer, the current brings in blue marlin, white marlin, yellowfin, longfin, spearfish, bluefin, big eye, skipjack tunas and dorados. In addition, we can fish for small tuna (from 25 to 30 kilos) throughout almost the entire year (February to November) and for large tuna (up to 400 kilos) from March to May.
The boat on which we will enjoy this experience is 11 metres long and more than 4.5 metres wide, which allows us to take up to 10 people on the same trip. In fact, each fisherman will have his or her own rod. You can come with other fishermen, or with companions who don’t want to fish but who want to share the experience of a fishing charter boat in Gran Canaria.
If you are an expert fisherman, you already know the unique sensation of big game fishing, and if you aren’t, you will have the opportunity to experience it on our journey. Don’t worry if you don’t have any experience, since we will teach you how to fish and will give you all the instructions you need before and during the catch.
Even though the fish aren’t guaranteed, the 25 years of experience of the boat captain, Pedro Ortiz, and his crew make it highly likely that you’ll be able to find and catch fish.
During the cruise, we can switch from total calm, from the tranquillity of a relaxing boat ride, to complete excitement as a fish takes the bait. Depending on the type of fish you’re catching, the catching manoeuvre can last between 10 minutes and 2 hours, with maximum concentration to get your reward.
But there are other surprises that can impress you as you go deep sea fishing in Gran Canaria. Although whales are occasionally seen, with their unmistakeable spout, it’s common for us to be surrounded by pods of dolphins for part of our trip. They are so close to us that it even seems that you could take a selfie with them.
And the views of the coast of Gran Canaria—particularly the entire area of Meloneras with its spectacular hotels—the Maspalomas Lighthouse, the dunes and other attractions complement the excursion.
In short, we will offer maximum opportunities for sport fishing in Gran Canaria so that you can enjoy fishing for marlin, tuna and many other fish while you discover other attractions in this area of the Canaries.
