Cape Verde is an excellent fishing destination for a variety of fishing techniques. There is a great variety of species ranging from groupers, moray eels, triggerfish, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, amberjack, mahi mahi to blue marlin. The best known fishing area for blue marlin is around the island of Sao Vicente, but there is also a chance of catching this impressive fish here at Boa Vista.
For tuna, mahi mahi, serra and blue marlin, trolling is used in so-called big game fishing. With different plastic lures (Rapalla & Squid) we go to depths between 40 and 70 metres.
Amberjack are mainly caught by vertical jigging. This can be combined with the Big Game Tour.
The Big Game Fishing is offered as a half-day and full-day tour. Depending on which tour you choose, you will either go to the north and west or far south of Boa Vista.
The peak season for Blue Marlin is from April to July.
Big Game Fishing can be offered all year round. However, during the months of December to May it can often be very windy with high swells. In this case tours have to be postponed or even cancelled completely. The best weather conditions for big game tours are from June to November. Of course, there can always be strong winds and high waves during this time.
Safety and well-being always come first. Therefore, we will always check the weather forecast when you are here and if necessary we will discuss the dates with you again.
If we catch a Blue Marlin, the rule is: Catch & Release - this fish will be released again. All other fish will be divided among the crew. In the case of larger catches, part of the catch will also go to the needy on the island of Boa Vista. In no case will the fish be sold afterwards.
Get involved in an adventure: Pure adrenaline when you hook your first big fish.
At the moment of the bite, you feel the adrenaline rising inside you. You feel the power of the fish without initially knowing what kind of fish it is. Experience what goes on inside you when you have pulled the first fish on board the boat.
