Crested Wave – Genuine Fishing

Join Crested Wave – Genuine Fishing and go your own fishing adventure on the beautiful waters of Tenerife in Los Cristianos! Captain Michael Williams got the business from his father, and is now running it with his son, so this is a family of experienced anglers.

You’ll go out on his 42’ James Taylor offshore sportfishing boat. It takes up to 10 anglers who can all fish at the same time. You’ll find everything you need for a comfortable day out on the water, without sacrificing home comfort. The boat is spacious and equipped with a flybridge, toilet, kitchen, and a bed, so you’ll feel right at home!

Capt. Michael will provide you with high-quality Penn and Shimano rods and reels. You’ll be using a variety of artificial and dead bait lures, and sometimes live bait, depending on the technique and the species you’re targeting.

These are productive grounds, so there’s a variety of fish species you can target. You can go trolling for Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Tuna, and Wahoo. Test your bottom fishing skills by reeling in some Common Pandora, Amberjack, and Shark. Depending on the season and the conditions, the captain will make sure to take you to the best spots so you can maximize your time on the water!

If you’d like to spend some quality family time and make some great memories with your kids, the captain can adjust any trip to be family-friendly. Kids older than 3 are welcome on board, and they’ll be safe with life jackets in all sizes.

The captain will make sure to have water, drinks, and snacks on all trips. Lunch is included on all trips except the half-day shared ones. Make sure to dress appropriately and bring some sun protection so you can enjoy your trip at ease.

About the Captain

Michael Williams
Los Cristianos, Canary Islands, Spain
Response time 1 hour
Member since July 2019
My father emigrated to the islands in 1980 and started to run general boat excursions, and always had a passion for Angling, especially in the sea as he was ex Merchant Navy. I used to regularly visit him from my base in the UK and 25 years ago I came here for an extended vacation. Who knew then that I would buy the business from him after helping him run it for a few years and skippering the boat. Now I run it with my son Jack, so 3 generations later, our family has been running this service here in Tenerife out of Los Cristianos Harbour. Since I was 8 years old my preoccupation has been fishing, so I have been lucky enough to have my passion and hobby turned into my business. Even after all this time, my heart races when one of the reels screams off, it's like an addiction! I cannot get enough of it. We have good and bad days, but the good days far outweigh the bad ones. My favorite has to be the Blue Marlin. That's why it is top of the international list, say no more!
