If you’re looking for a fun day on the high seas, catching big fish with an experienced skipper, “Foramando” is the boat for you! Skipper Miguel Serra Bestard has been running charters around Mallorca since the early ‘90s, giving him the experience and the skills to put you and your group on some great fish.

You will be launching from the stunning seaside town of El Arenal, just 15 minutes from Palma De Mallorca. Depending on your trip, you could be fishing the local waters for Seabream and Comber, or heading way offshore in search of Mahi Mahi, Spearfish, Swordfish, and even Bluefin Tuna! You can also drop lines into the depths for delicious Dusky Grouper and Monkfish.

Whatever you do, you couldn’t ask for a better boat to spend the day on. The Foramando is a 42’ Marea sportfishing yacht with masses of room for 6 guests to spend the day in luxury. She has acres of deck space, plenty of air-conditioned seating inside, and a full bathroom complete with a shower for extra comfort on longer trips. In short, she has it all.

And that’s without even getting started on the fishing itself. The boat has outriggers and downriggers to target fish at any depth and speed. Her fighting chair will let you stand your ground against the fiercest bluewater beasts, while her spearfishing equipment will get you up close and personal if you’re the adventurous type.

Skipper Miguel is proud to offer a safe, enjoyable experience that is tailored to your group and what you want from the day. Whether you’re after an all-day, all-out angling extravaganza or a morning of sea, sun, and fishing fun, he and his skilled crew will guide you toward some great catches and an unforgettable experience.
