Honesto Maena Fishing Charters

Honesto Maena Fishing Charters specializes in putting their clients on top of the biggest fish of the Adriatic Sea. It’s as simple as that and it can’t go any better.

Whether you are a complete beginner who has never held a fishing rod in their life or a hard-core angler in search of a hunt of a lifetime, look no further. With Honesto Maena, there is something for everyone.

Venture out to the open sea and leave the shore behind. Enjoy the finest deep sea action and get your hands on Bluefin Tuna. While targeting the big boys, you will get a chance to land Mahi Mahi and Seabream.

Once you’re done catching, you will return back to shore with a catch of the day. It’s possible to have some parts of your catch prepared for dinner later. The crew could take you to a special place where you could enjoy your catch with your family and friends. All of that is at no extra cost at all!

All of that magic happens aboard a 29’ Luhrs offshore sport fishing boat. It comes powered by a pair of 130 HP Volvo Penta engines and can cruise at a top speed of 24 knots. The boat can comfortably take put to 5 anglers to fish in comfort and style.

There is a full range of top-notch navigational and fish finding electronics by Raymarine. The boat has all the comfort of home, including a lady-friendly toilet, a bed, a shower, and many amenities to cater to your comfort.

The trips are all-inclusive. You will only need to discuss your snacks and drinks preferences before the trip.
