Tunana Fishing Charter is a family owned business that keeps getting more people high on the adrenaline, year after year. Siblings Marko, Cici, and Nana are an unbeatable team when they fish together and they have already won several Tuna fishing tournaments. This time, they gather their forces for you and to make sure this is the day you’ll never forget!

Join this fun crew on their 38’ Cantieri Costa Smeralda boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. She’s fitted with a private toilet, a small kitchen, a bed, and lots of seating space. To help you get to your fishing spot in no time, there are twin 380 HP Caterpillar engines and to help you battle the fish more easily, you can use the fighting chair.

The star of the show is, of course, Bluefin Tuna. But you can also have lots of fun and excitement going after Mahi Mahi, Mackerel, and Shark. Depending on what you’re after, you can use bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, and drift fishing as your main techniques.

Your fishing equipment and licenses are fully covered by the crew. The price also includes your snacks and drinks on the boat. The adventure doesn’t have to stop early, and you can take a multiday trip, which also covers your accommodation.

With the fully equipped boat and experienced crew, you will enjoy your Tuna fishing experience in Croatia. Year by year and Tuna after Tuna, the Tunana Fishing crew continues to live and breathe the sea and the local fisherman lifestyle. Join them and share the adventure!

    Half day option is perfect for early morning sunrise fishing or late afternoon sunset fishing. We drive approx 30min to the position and we fishing 4 hours total. The main location for the half-day fishing is a shipwreck. It means we fish for smaller fish like mackerels or conger or scorpion fish on the bottom but at the same time, we use 3 big rods for the bluefin tuna, mahi mahi, and shark. The trip is perfect for a family with a tide schedule but you can be sure it provides the full experience!

My name is Marko born in Pula 02.11.1990. Since we bought the bigger 12m boat in 2021 I decide I’ll quit my Navigational Officer job and start work permanently on our Tunana family business. I fell in love with tuna fishing in 2013 the moment I hooked and rilled in my first bluefin of 2,11m and 110kg. After that few more personal records and endless fights with this magnificent fish and countless dawns and sunsets at sea onboard our Tunana boat. Every tuna I catch I’m happy as it’s my first one, and always remind myself how grateful I am to have this opportunity and privilege to work as a captain on a charter boat and to share such amazing experiences with fishermen from around the world. My goal is to transmit this wonderful experience of spending a day at sea, on such a nice boat, the lifestyle that I’m lucky to live for the most part of the year, all of that whit few rods in the sea waiting for the most wonderful fish to bite and to cheer us up even more!
