Marlin Cape Verde

There’s nothing but excitement and rod bending action when you’re on a fishing trip with Marlin Cape Verde! Captain Zak has been fishing in the area for years and the local big game fishing scene is like an open book for him. This isn’t just a job for him, it’s more of a way of living.

It’s hard to catch the biggest fish if you’re not using a boat designed for sportfishing. That is why Capt. Zak made sure that your trip takes place on one of the best fishing machines there is! All aboard a 44’ Henriques boat that accommodates up to 4 guests.

Newly built in 2020, this vessel has the latest navigational electronics, it’s powered by twin 610 HP Man engines, and all fishing equipment you could wish for. To make even the longest trip a comfortable one, there’s an enclosed cabin with AC, a private bathroom, a lounge area, and even the internet connection!

The main start of the show is Blue Marlin on any trip! You can also go after Sharks, Barracuda, Wahoo, Amberjack, and other species. Trolling is the best way to catch them, but you can always challenge yourself with some other technique.

Your fishing equipment, license, food, and drinks are fully covered, but feel free to bring your own snacks. Kids over 7 years old are welcome to join under parental supervision.

Join Marlin Cape Verde and experience the thrill of big game fishing!
