Tunana Fishing Charter

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!

Member since March 2020
I'm part of the Tunana fishing team since the beginning when my brother Ćići bought the first tunana boat Faeton Moraga 910 back in 2014. That's when I truly fell in love with tuna fishing with my first catch, a 211cm long and 120kg heavy bluefin tuna. In the meanwhile, I become 3rd officer on large container vessels and navigated around the globe for a period of up to 6 months at sea. After 3 years on container vessels, I came back home and decided I will dedicate myself to our family big game fishing charter. So in 2021, we bought a bigger 12m boat Costa Smeralda and I'm looking forward to new adventures at sea.
