Boa Vista Tours

Boa Vista Tours is located in Sal Rei and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters.

Capt. Frank will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. He specializes in bottom fishing, trolling, big game fishing, and jigging, all to get you on that bite. This involves 7-hour trips, mainly fishing for Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, Amberjack, Marlin, and Mahi Mahi, depending on the season and conditions on the day.

Your boat for the day will be a 23’ AL Custom that fits up to 3 anglers at any one time. The boat comes with an ice box. The price of your trip includes all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a productive day on the water. The captain will supply all the needed fishing licenses for your trip.

They can offer big game fishing all year round. In the months of December to May, however, it can often be very windy with high waves. In this case, trips have to be postponed or canceled completely. The best weather conditions for big game tours are from June to November. Of course, there can always be strong winds and high waves during this time.

If you catch a Blue Marlin, the following applies: Catch and Release – this fish is released again. All other fish are divided among the crew. In the case of larger catches, a portion also goes to the needy on the island of Boa Vista. Under no circumstances will the fish be sold afterward.

Here to help you with anything you need, the first mate will be on hand during the trip. Leaving a tip for a job well done is much appreciated. You’ll find free snacks, and drinks on the boat for your convenience, but you’re always welcome to pack your own should you want to.

Up for a family trip? This is a children-friendly business, so bring your loved ones to share these memories with.

Das bekannteste Fanggebiet für den Blue Marlin ist um die Insel Sao Vicente, aber auch hier bei Boa Vista besteht durchaus die Chance, diesen beeindruckenden Fisch zu fangen.
