Captain Andrea - African Fishing

Calle Principal
Cape Verde, Cape Verde

Captain Andrea invites you for an African Fishing adventure in the tropical island of Cape Verde, West Africa. He offers unforgettable experiences both on the land and in the water with fishing taking place on the shore and on the boat in the wildest Cape Verde hot spots.

Your adventure will be all-inclusive of accommodation in a lodge, terrain vehicles to transport you to and from your fishing adventure, fishing, camping equipment, and a guide who speaks Italian, Spanish, and English.

Since you will travel around the island every day, fishing from a new spot, the accommodation will be in different places. Some of the lodges are located in local villages and some on the beaches of Cape Verde. All lodges have bathroom and shower facilities.

Captain Andrea can take you fishing for Amberjack, various Shark species, Big Caranx, and tropical billfish that include massive Blue Marlin. Cape Verde is a premium spot for Blue Marlin fishing, as the climate suits them perfectly, and they populate the local waters in very healthy numbers.

Your fishing adventure can take place aboard various boats, depending on the type of fish you will be targeting and will include a 22-foot custom-built saltwater fishing boat. This boat is powered by two 100 HP Suzuki engines that make it perfect for getting 4 anglers to the most productive fishing grounds efficiently.

Safety equipment such as life vests and electronics in the form of a GPS and a fishfinder are available on the boat. There is also a fighting chair which you’ll use when fighting billfish. They are extremely powerful and a good fight with them can last close to an hour, so you’ll need all the support you can get.

This is where the first mate comes in - he will help you reel in your catch, and once you are back on the shore, he will clean and fillet it for you, too.

Captain Andrea and his crew will provide everything you will need on your adventure, so book today for a once in a lifetime African Fishing Adventure.
