Full description
Indulge your passion for fishing, or pique your interest in it, by taking a boat tour from Gran Canaria's south coast. Fish in the Atlantic Ocean with your included fishing equipment, and see what you can catch. Set sail from the Puerto Rico pier, and spend between five and six hours out at sea. Practice ledgering or trolling fishing techniques, depending on which season you go. Ledgering, also known as bottom fishing, is the most common fishing technique, and is used to catch fish that are found near the sea floor. Practice it during the high season, from late September until March. Trolling is a method that draws one or more fishing lines, baited with lures or bait fish, through the water. Try your hand at it during off season, from April until September. Take a break to recuperate with a snack of a sandwich, soft drink, and fresh fruit. Hotel pickup and drop-off are included with the tour, as long as your hotel is located in the south of Gran Canaria. The boat accommodates ten passengers and two crew members.

It was a very nice fishing trip on open water, a lot of fish and incredibly nice staff who helped and made the trip really fun! Good sandwich was served at half time! Got a mako shark up to the surface near the boat but it just dropped! Thanks for this time, hugs Axel and Molly

The fishing date was brought forward from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. I received the notification for this by telephone on the morning of the fishing day at 07:55. That was pure stress. The day began without breakfast and unprepared. Otherwise it was a relaxed fishing trip. Catched some perch up to 40 cm and one sea bream up to 60 cm. Marlin no, they are caught in June / July. Board service was okay. Chilled drinks and sandwiches were served. Captain Enrike and his young wife were extremely nice, there was a warm farewell at the end of the fishing trip. The return to the hotel was organized. I'm looking forward to the next trip with them.
