Tunaroa

Come explore the beautiful Adriatic Sea alongside Captain Marc Inoue, a man who has some serious bragging rights – he was one of the first people to start fishing for seriously giant Bluefin Tuna in Vrsar, Croatia. Who could be better to guide you around this fantastic fishery? Climb aboard and let Tunaroa charters take you on an incredible angling adventure!

Angling is in Capt. Marc’s genes – his childhood was spent traveling with his father and exploring the waters of Oman, Tanzania, Panama, and Hawaii. He started Tuna fishing in Croatia way back in 1996, and is an expert at guiding his guests to the hottest spots where the fish are biting. He prides himself on being one of the most experienced captains on the Adriatic Sea, and loves nothing more than passing on his knowledge to fellow anglers.

You’ll be heading out on your adventure in a 30’ Cobia 296 center console vessel. She can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests, giving you plenty of room to reel in your catch. She’s equipped with all the hottest electronics, outriggers for maximum fishing, and necessary safety gear. An enclosed, private toilet is also on board, so you can chase your dream catch in comfort!

As for the species you’ll be targeting? Capt. Marc might be a Bluefin Tuna master, but that’s not all he offers. You’ll also have the opportunity to go after Mahi Mahi, Bluefish, a variety of Shark, and more. Get ready to live-bait troll, drift-fish, and bottom-fish for some impressively-sized species. When it comes to Bluefin, Capt. Marc prefers to release these beasts so that other anglers will have a chance at battling them! The rest of your catch will be cleaned by the captain himself.

Capt. Marc’s trips are suitable for all anglers, whether you’re a hardcore big-game battler or want to take your kids on a truly memorable vacation. Top-notch Daiwa and Shimano rods and reels are provided, so all that’s left is to come aboard Tunaroa charters and get ready to reel ‘em in!

Captain Marc Inoue says it best - fishing is in his genes! He's a military kid, so he spent his childhood traveling with his father and fishing all over the world. Oman, Tanzania, Panama, and Hawaii are some of his favourite places to reel in impressive species. He's been chartering boats for a long time now, and he has the bragging rights of being one of the first people to start Tuna fishing in Croatia, way back in 1996. He's a lawyer by profession, but decided to go back to his one true passion - fishing! His best catch? Well, as Capt. Mark likes to say, "I caught my wife two years ago!". As for fish, he's reeled in a 477kg Tuna and some pretty large Marlin. He's sociable, loves sharing his knowledge about this diverse fishery, and can't wait to introduce his guests to Vrsar!
