A family-run local business with decades of experience in both fishing as well as hospitality, available from multiple ports and offering pickup? Possible? Yes. Welcome to Barbarossa Excursions.
The charter operates a 30’ fast cruiser, a custom-built center console, powered by a 470 HP Iveco engine. The speed provided allows “Jake” to reach the fishing grounds more quickly, wasting no time on travel. The vessel is equipped with a full-head toilet for comfort, as well as a sunroof to keep the rays under control. An electronics suite is also available on board, to help you find that dream fish.
The species targeted on this charter are varied, depending on season and location fished. Fishing near the coast of Malta can result in a colorful mixed bag, though the real action starts offshore. Bluefin and Albacore Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Swordfish are all on the menu, depending on the season. All required equipment is provided by the charter, though they do allow experienced anglers to bring their own gear.
The charter is operated by a father-and-son team, Captains Frankie and Chris, along with Jamie, also an experienced fisherman. Together, they bring a wealth of experience to the table, not only in all sorts of fishing techniques but in hospitality as well.
Children are encouraged to come onboard and learn the exciting sportfishing however certain age restrictions apply. Nearshore fishing trips have a 4+ minimum age policy, with 8+ being applied to offshore trips.
Barbarossa Excursions offer pickup from various hotels and accommodations to the boat and back, at the following rates: 70 euros per taxi for 4 passengers, with a minibus available for 90 euros for 12 passengers. The prices are per vehicle and for return trips.
