Having the chance to come face-to-gills with some spectacular saltwater species while relaxing in a beautiful location is at the top of most anglers’ to-do lists. Join Captain Dragan Rudan aboard Sampei and get ready to explore the beautiful Adriatic waters around Poreč. You’ll take in some stunning scenery and hook some world-famous fish, too!

It’s safe to say that Capt. Dragan is a fishing fanatic. As well as running Sampei charters where he provides guests with top-notch trips, he works as a commercial fisherman during the winter months, and loves participating in Tuna tournaments. Angling isn’t just a hobby for him – it’s a way of life! Whether you’re an experienced angler looking to meet new buddies, or want to take your family on the trip of a lifetime, he can’t wait to introduce you to these waters.

You’ll be heading up to 12 miles out onto the Adriatic sea, and your captain has just the boat for the job. You’ll be traveling on board his spacious 42’ Kosanovic 42 vessel. She can accommodate up to 12 guests, allowing plenty of room for you to fish at the same time, and fit in some serious relaxation. She’s decked out with all the necessary navigational and safety gear, as well as a full toilet, so you’ll have a comfortable ride to the hotspots.

Your captain will have you trolling, spinning, bottom fishing, and jigging for a variety of species – whether you’re a newbie or a hardened fisherman, a first mate will be on hand to help you master these techniques. You’ll have the chance to hook King and Spanish Mackerel, Gilt-bream, and maybe even some hard-fighting Mahi Mahi. Your captain also targets Ugor, a local eel that puts up a huge fight. See how the locals battle this beast, then try it for yourself!

Your trip includes top-notch rods and reels, and snorkeling gear for all 12 guests – get ready to experience these beautiful waters from a completely different angle. Add some true local flair to your vacation, and get ready to reel ‘em in with Sampei!
