For your next fishing vacation, head to Spain and take a trip with Charter Santa Cruz. Captain Pedro Lopez and his crew have years of experience and will do everything in their power to make sure you have a successful fishing trip with them.

Hop on board their beautiful 36’ Doqueve jet boat. This boat is powered by twin 500 HP Yanmar engines, allowing you to cover more ground quickly. The best spots for Tuna fishing are on the 10-hour trip up to 30 miles offshore, which can take up to 2 hours to reach.

This boat is fully equipped with everything you could ever need for a comfortable and enjoyable fishing experience. The boat is decked out with full safety and navigational equipment and has a private restroom, kitchen, and bedrooms. You can even charge your iPhone or Android phone on board! There are enough snorkeling masks for everyone to take a dip simultaneously too.

When fishing, you’ll mostly be targeting Tuna. The best time for this is between March and November. Apart from 2 weeks at the end of June, Bluefin Tuna is always catch and release. Other species you’ll be targeting include White Marlin, Spearfish, Albacore and Bigeye Tuna, Thresher Shark, Amberjack, Barracuda, and plenty more. There is even a chance of catching Swordfish, but you’ll need to be highly skilled for that!

Everything is included in the price of the trip. Every angler on board will have a rod provided for them. There are Shimano rods of 30, 50, and 150 lb, and 50 lb Penn rods. Food and drinks are provided on each trip, as well as your fishing license for the day. If you wish to use live bait, please request this before the day, and the captain will organize it for you.

It’s time to book your Spanish adventure today! The crew of Charter Santa Cruz can’t wait to welcome you on board and start making some lifelong memories together.

Captain Pedro has been on the sea all his life. He started fishing in the Canary Islands many years ago. He has participated in many deep sea fishing competitions at a national level and has been very successful in these. The biggest fish he's ever caught is 370 kg Bluefin Tuna in Cartagena, Murcia – he was very proud of this catch! He loves teaching children and loves to see them catch their first fish. He'll gladly let the kids play "the captain" so you know the whole family will love going fishing with him.
