Join Captain Goran Qvarfordt and Viking Fishing Brasil for some of the best offshore fishing available in the country! The state of Bahia holds the world record for both Blue and White Marlin, so you know it’s good. You can always hope for the best when you’re fishing these crystal-clear blue waters.

You’ll be fishing aboard the “Viking Dream.” She is a 39’ Carbrasmar 395 and is powered by a pair of 290 HP Mercedes engines. With enough space for up to 8 anglers to fish in comfort and 4 people to sleep on overnight trips, feel free to bring some friends along for the ride. She’s got all the amenities needed for a successful trip, from a fighting chair down to tuna tubes, outriggers, and an air-conditioned interior.

Apart from Marlin, there’s a whole lot of other species to catch for anyone who’s a fan of deep sea fishing. This includes Tuna, Wahoo, Red Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, and many more. The crew makes use of quality electric reels for depths up to 800 meters, making bottom fishing that much more enjoyable.

All the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for the trip are included in the trip price, along with drinks, snacks, and lunch. Make sure to bring a pair of polarized sunglasses and some sunscreen. The crew will do their best to make sure you have the best fishing experience possible during your stay in Brazil.

If you opt for jigging or bottom instead, you'll get the chance to reel in Amberjack, Snapper, and a whole host of other deep dwellers. There's also the possibility of chasing after Swordfish.

Originally from Sweden, Captain Goran Qvarfordt has spent the last 20 years fishing in the Caribbean.
