The Real Fishing Experience in Tenerife

One man, 25 years of experience and an unrivalled passion for fishing.

Captain Gavin is so in love with fishing and knows so much about Tenerife that he will transport you on a journey of knowledge, discovery and adventure.

His small yet nifty boat will get you to the best spots to learn the special techqniues needed for each type of sea condition.

Whether you are a total beginner that wants to have their first experience or an advanced fisher looking for their personal best - Gavin has you covered.

You’ll be fishing on a 25’ offshore sportfishing boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. This is one of the fastest boats in its class, reaching a speed of 22 knots per hour. The vessel is by no means a luxury yacht, it is modest and functional, this is about getting down to it and for that Gavin has all kinds of equipment for the most effective and fun fishing trip, such as a fighting chair, outriggers, downriggers, a live bait tank, and a wireless trolling engine.

If you want a real, hands-dirty, local and authentic no-frills fishing experience, then welcome aboard!

What sets our trip apart is Captain Gavin himself.

He lives, eats and breaths fishing.

There is not much he does not know about fishing in Tenerife and he is so passionate to share it with those who come aboard.
Whether you are a first timer or looking for your personal best, Gavin will do his best to assist you. His passion is palphable and he wants everyone else to fall in love with what he does too.

It all starts in the port of Puerto Colon, from the southwest tip of the island. You’ll head out offshore, where you’ll have the chance to target Marlin, Tuna, Barracuda, Amberjack, and many other species.

All fishing equipment and licenses are included in the price. The crew will also take care of your drinks and snacks, but feel free to bring your food. Make sure to have enough sun protection and bring a hat if you have one.

See you on board!

Fishing was Skipper Gavin's lifetime hobby that progressed to owning a fishing boat, then went professional since owning a 200 break HP outboard on his 22' fishing boat. He takes you after some of the biggest fish in the sea.
