Start your big game fishing adventure with El Diablo Fishing Charter. Based in Opatija, in the North Adriatic, Captain Robert runs exciting trips year round. Join the captain with the longest big game fishing experience in the area. If you haven’t gone fishing in the offshore waters of the Adriatic Sea, you haven’t seen everything that Croatian seaside offers.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 32’ Luhrs offshore boat. This very spacious vessel accommodates up to 10 guests, so all of your fishing buddies or the whole family can join. To make your trip comfortable, especially if you’re taking a full day trip, the boat has an indoor seating area, a private bathroom, a TV, and a kitchen.

Twin 600 HP Cummins engines are there to make sure you reach your fishing spots as soon as possible. You’ll go up to 15 miles offshore, which usually takes 30 minutes. You’ll go after Mahi Mahi, huge Tunas, Amberjack, and Sharks. You can keep the catch up to 5 kg.

Different activities are also an option, so if you want to go spearfishing or snorkeling, just ask the captain. Note that you need to request this in advance and that there’s not enough gear for the whole group. Your fishing equipment is fully covered, you only need to bring food and drinks.

El Diablo Fishing Charter is your ticket to a whole new experience. Fishing with a knowledgeable captain on a luxurious boat is something you’ll definitely remember for years to come. Just choose your date!

Captain Robert has been fishing for 40 years and he’s been doing it professionally for 20 years. One of the things he's known for among the locals is that he was the first one to start doing big game fishing in Croatia. Seeing his guests happy is one of the best parts of his job. Occasionally, he participates in the international fishing tournaments. In 2019, he placed first in Costa Rica.
