Happy Hooker III invites you to explore the aquatic opportunities on the beautiful waters of Tenerife. Try something different on your next Spanish holiday. Choose the type of fishing you want to try and get your hands on whatever patrols the local waters. Fish on!

Captain Jamie will meet you with a warm welcome aboard the ‘Happy Hooker III’. She is a 28’ sport fishing catamaran with twin 240 HP Yanmar Diesel engines to get you to the fishing grounds quickly and safely. The Happy Hooker III can comfortably accommodate you and nine fishing buddies. On board, you will find the latest fishing technology and electronics to aid your search for the fish.

Plus, the Happy Hooker is equipped with a flybridge to spot any action going on beneath the surface and a fighting chair for those who are up to a challenge.

Captain Jamie is an experienced captain who is ready to put his talent to work for you. His First Mate will assist you throughout the adventure to make sure your hooks are baited. You will be provided with all the necessary equipment, including light tackle with smaller rods for those who want to just test the waters.

On your day out, you will be able to try jigging, spinning lures, fly fish, chum for Tuna and Shark, and much more. The list of your potential catches includes White and Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack. Yellowfin, Albacore, and Bluefin Tuna, Wahoo, Bluefish, Bigeye Tuna, Spearfish, and even Shark.

The trips aboard the Happy Hooker III are all-inclusive. Your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you when you return to shore. If you decide to go for a full-day trip, the crew will offer lunch in addition to drinks.

My father used to run fishing charters back in the UK but in 1983 got fed up with the bad weather so decided to move his family to Tenerife to try his luck in warmer waters. When we arrived here he was the first boat to offer fishing charters in Tenerife and being a young 7 year old fishing enthusiast I spent every day that I could out on the boat, at one time the whole family had to live on board as things never went to plan and I used to have to see my home go fishing every week day whilst I went to school. Finally in 1990 we figured out where the marlin were hiding in Tenerife and had the best year ever. A few years later when I left school I got sent back to the UK to do a 5 year apprenticeship on the River Thames, in 1998 I earned my Freedom of the Company of Watermen & Lightermen of the River Thames and came back to Tenerife full time, by now my father had passed the company on but it wasnt long before I got my own boat.
