Náutica Madrugada

Explore Isla de Sal, the land of wonderful white sandy beaches, warm, crystal clear waters, and coral reefs of the Cape Verdean archipelago. It offers unique conditions for fishing for world famous species and there’s no better way to experience these water than with a reliable local charter. That’s what Náutica Madrugada is all about!

They are located on the south of the island, in Santa María, and are a company dedicated to maritime excursions, recreational fishing, and water sports. Let them take you on a magnificent adventure through the deep waters of Cape Verde!

You’ll travel aboard the “Barakuda,” a custom-built catamaran with a length of 14 meters and a beam of 4.5 meters. The masterful design of this fishing boat allows it to take up to 8 guests on board. It comes with a flybridge, from which you can take the most impressive images of the ocean. The Barakuda comes powered by twin 234 HP Volvo Penta engines and features a restroom, beds, and top-notch navigational and safety gear.

You can explore the waters near the island of salt by trolling, jigging, or bottom fishing. Face the impressive marine species that inhabit these waters – a variety of Tuna, Wahoo, Snapper, Spearfish, and Mahi Mahi are all on the menu. And you will also get a chance to fight one of the biggest fish in the world, the beautiful Blue Marlin! If you’re a beginner, don’t worry – the crew will show you everything you need to know.

If you choose, you can also visit the impressive long white sand beaches of the neighboring island of Boa Vista, where you can take a walk through the city of Sal Rei.

Your trip will include premium rods and reels, bait, tackle, snacks, and soft drinks. You won’t have to worry about fishing licenses, either.

Discover the magic of the waters of Isla de Sal with the help of Náutica Madrugada!
