Fishing in Fuerteventura

With its volcanic terrain, 150 kilometers of golden beaches, crystal clear waters, and year-round sunshine, it’s easy to see why Fuerteventura is a popular holiday destination. The second-largest of the Canary Islands has plenty in the way of recreational fun, and fishing is part of the appeal for tourists. Come fishing in Fuerteventura and discover the wealth of fish in the heart of the Atlantic.
 

What to Expect

From the shallow bays to the deep waters offshore, there’s something for everyone here. Fill the boat with some smaller, yet delicious creatures nearshore, or battle it out with some big game fish in the depths. Bring the whole family along and get everyone hooked on fishing!

Nearshore Fishing

Fishing the shallows will give you the chance for a real hands-on experience, getting to grips with a rod and reel. Try bottom fishing and you’re sure to land delicious creatures such as Sea Bream, Dentex, Pandora, Triggerfish, and many more. 
 
Home to so many diverse and dazzling fish, you’ll want to get close and personal too. Most charters offer snorkeling gear, so take advantage and discover a whole new world underwater. Experienced divers can even try spearfishing for a real pulse-racing experience.

Offshore Fishing

If you know your stuff, then the chance to go after some of the ocean’s most prized creatures will appeal. Head offshore to the deeper waters and go after some monster fish. Fuerteventura literally translates to “strong wind,” so be sure to have your sea legs ready!
 
An offshore fishing charter in Fuerteventura will see you troll the open waters for the bite of a range of exciting fish. The beauty of fishing here is that when one species migrates out, another one passes through. All year round, you’ll have the chance to go up against monstrous Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and many more prized creatures. 
 
Another bonus of fishing in the Canaries is that the deep waters are right on your doorstep. Spend anywhere between half a day and the whole day, or even go out at night, and explore any of the diverse fishing grounds that make this an angler’s paradise. 
 

When to Go

There’s never a bad time to come fishing in Fuerteventura. Warm weather means warm waters year round, which always attracts plenty of exciting and delicious fish. Come in late summer or early fall for the pick of the fishing, where Blue and White Marlin and four kinds of Tuna offer thrilling offshore opportunities. But beware, the waters can get even more choppy then. 

How to Prepare

Aboard your monster offshore sportfishing boat, you’ll find everything you need for a productive day out. The crew will set you up with all the latest fishing gear, and you can take advantage of the spacious cabin and deck to relax and enjoy your trip to sea. Most captains offer snacks and drinks to keep you refreshed, while some will even provide lunch, so there’s not much left for you to do.
 
All we suggest you do is bring some medicine to protect against seasickness, coat up in sunscreen, and get ready for a thrilling day out. 
 
With such a range of fishing in Fuerteventura, you don’t want to miss out. Book your fishing charter to make your holiday that extra bit special!
