Greenboat SportFishing

Greenboat Sportfishing is giving you the chance to explore the prolific waters around Rio de Janeiro! Owned and operated by a family that is crazy for being on the water, you can be sure that you’ll have a great time, and a productive fishing adventure.

The Greenboat is a 51’ RioStar flybridge boat, powered by twin Volvo D6 engines. It makes light work of traveling offshore for Billfish, and also gives a smooth and enjoyable ride around the iconic city’s nearshore waterways. Fully equipped for both sportfishing and relaxing, the Greenboat will make your nautical dreams come true in Rio.

The IGFA record books speak of a legendary Blue Marlin caught just a couple of hundred miles down the coast from the Greenboat’s mooring. This was the largest Blue Marlin ever caught on rod and reel, weighing in at over 1400 pounds, and it came from the same waters that you will be fishing aboard the Greenboat.

Equipped with a Pompanette fighting chair and fully rigged with Shimano gear, this boat might give you the opportunity to come close to your very own monster Billfish. The crew also runs specialized bottom fishing trips, as well as liveaboard trips to the offshore oil platforms, where you can practice jigging and popping for huge Tuna, as well as Blue Marlin, White Marlin, and Mahi Mahi.

If you would rather spend a day on the water simply soaking in the unmatched beauty of Rio de Janeiro’s coastline away from the city’s bustling crowds, you can combine some cruising along with fishing. Here the crew will prepare a Brazilian barbeque in remote surroundings, supplying meat and fresh mussels to make your trip unforgettable.

Whatever you want to get out of your time on the water in Brazil, Greenboat Sportfishing will make your trip unforgettable!
