Captain Adrian Arcay loves to fish, and his passion eventually led him to start The Rodfather Tenerife Fishing charters a few years ago. Although they are a relatively new addition to the charter industry, both Capt. Adrian and his deckhand have made a great name for themselves, with The Rodfather being known as one of the most famous and successful boats in the area. In June 2016, they competed in the 16th Deep Sea Fishing Championship on La Gomera Island, where they placed 2nd out of 30 boats. Capt. Adrian and his crew always give their all to put their guests on the best catch, while providing them with a quality service and a fantastic day on the water.
