Gran Canaria fishing trips

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.
tuna fishing in gran canaria
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.
maspalomas fishing
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.
puerto rico fishing trips
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.
gran canaria tuna fishing
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.
fishing tours
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.

Fishing boats

Due to the high demand for fishing trips and the limited number of places on the boats, we work with 4 similar boats to offer, whenever possible, the spots you need on the day you want to fish.

Once you have booked, we will confirm the boat number and the pickup time.


If you want to hire a charter to go on the boat privately with a group of up to 10 people, contact us by email so we can offer you the best option that suits your needs.

Peeters L.December 2023

Every appointment on time, pick up service from the hotel, the boat,te crew. So far every thing is perfect. Most of the fishermans on board was unexperiend, therefore quickly a few mombers were see sick. Pitty thing. However the captain of the boat give us the best instruction witch rod was dividend to the members. My Son and where espected tuna and Marlin or other big fish ( this was mentioned in our call and e-mail from Pedro) . We onlusten catcher Some small bonitos, so this was for us a little minor. Boat, crew and equipment is perfect to catch the big fish.  

DARKO SOctober 2023

Nice weather, we saw the dolphins floating in front of the boat, the whales and catching four tunas. An unforgettable day for my wife and me.


WayneSeptember 2023

Perfect day with friends. 3 of us fished and 2 came as companions, and we had the best day of our holiday in Gran Canaria. The crew, the boat and the fishing were all fantastic. We will definitely return.

DerekSeptember 2023

Best fishing in Gran Canaria. Whenever we come to the island we go fishing, and on this boat, thanks to the crew's experience, we have caught blue and white marlin, a 200 kilo tuna and other, smaller fish.

CurtisSeptember 2023

As good as ever. I have already been fishing 5 times on the Blue Marlin, and although we don't always catch anything, the service of Pedro and his crew is always stupendous and the boat trip is always relaxing.

Panu J.September 2023

A great day and a nice catch! Snapper, hammerhead, barracuda, ray, moray and brim.


Brian E.September 2023

great boat and crew. fished for 6 hours and catches lots of different small fish.. halfway i caught a big 100kg (do not know the English word for that fish)

DonaldAugust 2023

Fantastic experience. It was the first time that I fished in my life and it seemed really fun, something I'll definitely do again.

TommyAugust 2023

A gamble that didn't pay off. In the 6 hours that we went around, we didn't catch anything, but it was still worth spending a day on the sea.

CarlAugust 2023

Well organized. Note that the owner, Pedro, is always on the boat and has fishing experience. He made us feel at home and guided us in catching a quite large tuna.

JeremyAugust 2023

Disappointing. We didn't catch anything but it must be said that the captain took us around for 6 hours in search of fishing grounds, and that helped us have a good day.

JosephJuly 2023

We'll do it again. Although it was cloudy and there was a bit of surf, we spent 6 pleasant hours on the boat, and one person caught a medregal and another caught a huge tuna.

DouglasJuly 2023

Great day of fishing. The experience of Pedro and his crew helped us catch 2 huge tuna.

PatrickJuly 2023

Relaxing and fun. I went with my wife, who came as a companion, and we spent a wonderful day relaxing and having fun catching tuna over 20 kilos.

FrankJuly 2023

3 days of fishing. We loved both the experience and the service provided by Pedro and his crew so much that our group of 4 friends went back 2 more days in a single week.

MarcusJuly 2023

I will do it again some time. The boat is comfortable and Pedro is very good. My wife and children and I had a fantastic day.

ChrisJuly 2023

Unforgettable. We had, according to the boat captain, one of the best days of the month. The weather was sunny, the sea was calm, and between the 2 of us we caught a huge tuna.

VincentJuly 2023

Bad day of fishing but a magnificent day on the sea. We were searching for fish throughout the entire excursion but didn't catch anything. All in all, it was an incredible day due to the number of dolphins and the whale that we saw. We just missed catching some of the big fish we were looking for.

CharlesJune 2023

Fantastic day. We got 2 medregal and a barracuda, and it happened to be a beautiful day in Grand Canaria, with a calm sea and clear sky.

PaulJune 2023

Great day for fishing. Captain Pedro has a lot of experience and we were able to catch 2 large tuna in the morning.

StevenJune 2023

Worthwhile. I've been fishing for more than 20 years and whenever I come to Gran Canaria, I know exactly where to go. On this boat I have already caught a 300 kilo tuna and various marlin and seabreams.

AnthonyJune 2023

We didn't catch anything. But thanks to Pedro and his crew, even though we didn't catch anything, the day was still lovely. Would do it again.

TomJune 2023

Perfect. They picked us up in Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles. The boat is big and we not only caught marlin, but also saw many dolphins around the boat throughout much of the day.

TinaJune 2023

A good quality-price ratio. Our group of 8 was very comfortable that day and the service by the crew was very good, as was the boat itself.

TravisJune 2023

Few fish. There were 7 people fishing on the boat but only 1 was lucky enough to catch a tuna. Even so, we had a good day.

MatthewMay 2023

Good service but we didn't catch anything. I have been fishing for many years and know that a catch is never guaranteed, but thanks to Pedro we were able to have a beautiful day regardless.

DanielMay 2023

Recommended. I went with my wife and son since they offered free pick up in Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas. The service was very good, from the time they picked us up at the hotel until they dropped us off. My son had beginner's luck because he was the only one who caught a 20 kilo tuna.

All fields are needed





Who gets the fish? What is done with the catch?
Fish up to 5 kilos can be taken by the clients, and the crew will decide at the time whether and how to distribute fish over 5 kg among the clients. Protected species are returned to the sea in the best condition possible.

What kind of clothes should I wear?
We recommend wearing clothes suited for the weather and season. But always bring comfortable clothing, warm clothing, a hat and sunscreen.

What type of fishing will we do?
The type of fishing depends mainly on the time of year and the type of fish that can be caught at any given time. The captain will decide the type of fishing based on his experience and the fishing experience of the previous days, both by him as well as by other fishing boats in the area.

As a rule, between November and March bottom fishing is more normal, while trolling is more common between May and October.

What is the best time to fish for blue marlin?
You’ll get more chances to fish for blue marling between June and September.

Do I need a fishing license to fish?

Do I need to bring fishing equipment?
No, the boat will provide everything you need to fish.

Do I need to know how to fish or have previous fishing experience?
No, in fact, for quite a few of our clients it’s their first time fishing.

The crew will teach you, give you instructions and help you so that you can fish like a pro.

Can I rent the boat to go only with my group?
Yes, contact us well in advance and we’ll give you all the information (available days and times, price, pick-up information, type of fishing).

What boat does the fishing trip take place in?
We have three very similar boats to offer as many seats as possible. Two of them are located at the Puerto Base dock in Puerto Rico and the other is docked at the Pasito Blanco dock.

Once the reservation is made, we’ll give you all the information about the boat, and where it’s located.

If you’ve booked with the pick-up option, the ship’s captain will contact you to tell you the pick-up time.
