Top Tenerife Destinations


The largest island in the Canaries, it’s no surprise that Tenerife is also the most-visited of the popular tourist isles. Located far from land in the heart of the Atlantic, it’s also no surprise that fishing in Tenerife is popular with the masses of visitors. It’s an offshore fishing paradise. Target monster Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Spearfish, and plenty of smaller fish year round!

What to Expect

Saltwater fishing is the name of the game in Tenerife. Whatever kind of sea fishing you crave, Tenerife has it. From the shallow reefs nearshore to the deep waters just a stone’s throw away, it’s all here. 

Offshore Fishing

In the deep waters surrounding the Canaries, you’ll come into contact with some incredible-sized monsters. From delicious Tuna and Mahi Mahi to three kinds of monstrous Marlin, there’s no end to what you can catch. 
 
You’ll mainly be trolling these waters to attract the bite of all of these prized fish. While this may sound like the chance to sit back and enjoy, remember that you’ll be on the choppy waters of the Atlantic. Get your sea legs ready for a bumpy ride offshore. 
 
Experienced anglers will relish the chance to do battle with some of the ocean’s most cherished creatures, but beginners may find it difficult. Some captains enforce an age limit on children, so check in advance if your child is welcome aboard.

Nearshore Fishing

If you’re looking for a trip that will definitely cater to the kids, then a nearshore excursion is a great idea. Not so far out from shore, you’ll get on the fish right away without wasting time,  keeping the kids entertained. 
 
All year round, you’ll find some delicious creatures making themselves at home in these shallower, warmer waters. Target delicious Sea Bream, Seabass, Mackerel, Pandora, Dentex, and many more smaller fish to fill the boat. 
 
Beginners can land their first catch, while avid anglers will go after hit, after hit, after hit. Grab your rod and reel and cast away as you bottom fish for a hands-on experience. You’ll also have the option to go snorkeling in these crystal clear waters. Discover the magical, colorful underwater world and teach the kids a thing or two, too.  

Where to Go

Most fishing takes place in the more popular resorts on the west and south coasts. Facing the island of La Gomera before the Atlantic opens out, the fishing grounds here yield more bang for your buck than elsewhere. Hop on a charter out of Costa Adeje, Las Galletas, or Playa San Juan and you’ll get to fish the productive reefs and deep waters.

When to Go

There’s never a bad time to go fishing in Tenerife. While the nearshore fish are always available, the offshore pelagics replace each other throughout the year. Come in winter and Bigeye Tuna, Barracuda, and Amberjack will form the bulk of your offering. As you head towards summer, Bluefins and Wahoo will be passing through, before Marlin take over. 

How to Prepare

All rods, reels, and a selection of lures or bait will be waiting on board the huge offshore sportfishing boats docked in Tenerife. Some charters may even offer a full lunch and a selection of drinks. All you’ll need to do is bring your swimsuit, a towel, and plenty of enthusiasm to fill the boat!
 
When holidaying in Tenerife, don’t waste your time lying on the beach, wondering what’s out there. Get on a boat and explore the wonders of the Atlantic!

January
Escape the January blues with a trip to Tenerife. Liven up your holiday with an offshore trip for Tuna, or fill the boat with some delicious Seabream or Mackerel nearshore.
 
February
As carnival season kicks off, the streets of Tenerife will be awash with colors and festivities. Combine this with a trip to sea, and you’ve got yourself a real holiday.
 
March
Spring brings with it new arrivals and you can start to find plenty of new fish in March. The rich offshore waters will yield some serious big game fish, while nearshore is as good as ever.
 
April
You’ll feel the season really start to heat up as tourists start making the most of Easter holidays and plenty of exciting fish make their way in for summer. 
 
May
White Marlin start arriving in May, giving you the opportunity to land the catch of a lifetime. With the hot sun glistening down, the workout will be made even more intense.
 
June
When summer hits, you’ll want to make the most of the offshore waters. While Dentex and Pandora will be inshore, the true stars of the sea are Marlin, Spearfish, and Tuna. 
 
July
The feast of Virgen del Carmen illuminates the island. A must-see for any marine enthusiast, the Virgin Mary is carried to a cruise amid wild feasting on sardines and wine. 
 
August
Arguably the best month for offshore fishing, August has all the big names around. Go after Marlin, Wahoo, Spearfish, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi for a productive day out. 
 
September
Come and catch the late summer sun and make the most of the dwindling crowds. Still technically in-season, you’ll have more of the beach to yourself.
 
October
It’s Amberjack and Tuna season in fall, so test your skills and strength against these strong creatures and head back to shore with something delicious for dinner. 
 
November
Albacore, Bluefin, and Bigeye Tuna will be making their way through the Canaries at the same time, giving you the rare chance to go after all three in November.
 
December
See out the year with a holiday. The weather stays warm and the fishing red-hot, so what’s stopping you? Enjoy the quietest time of year and be at one with the sea.

Depending on season, fishing varies. If you go for experience of the day, catching the fish you want is a bonus. Have fun and enjoy the day the boats can't guarantee you a fish, it's a big ocean out there.

Did a 4hrs trip on the morning and catched one nice tuna. The captain's thoughts were though that you catch better on the evening, on sunset.

Professional boat, crew and gear. Overall positive. Only downs; simple sandwiches for lunch, a bit too much service as in no room for helping out, and rod in hand when fish on.

Great day out Captain and Mate were very professional and certainly looked after us very well I managed to hook a large tuna but sadly it got off quite close to the boat. Otherwise fishing was very quiet. Plenty of tuna seen close to the surface but only two strikes the whole time

2 boys 2 dads for half a days fishing. They all enjoyed the trip (except the one who was sea sick🙄). Reports where that the crew were great very helpful and knowledgeable. Only negative was that there were 10 people onboard fishing and not the maximum of 6/7 that was advertised.

It was a great day out. I would highly recommend for anyone from beginners to more experienced fisherman. We were a mixed party of those who had never fished and experienced fishermen and we all had a great time and caught fish. The views are Sri other equipment is great with plenty of room and space for those who perhaps want to take a break. The price might be high but it is 100% worth. I could not recommend it enough.

Great expirience! We learned how to fish on a boat with the 3 different setups. Everyone had a massive fish rod and fished something. The boat was spacious and had a toilet, table and sits. The last hour was more calm so we enjoyed the sun + saw dolphins jumping around several times!! The crew were very frendly and they were very kind! Recomened 10/10. P.S. Don't forget to take the Motion sickness pill 30 min before the ride.

Eine kleine Abenteuertour, gute Wellen und abwechslungsreiches angeln. Der deutsch sprechende Kapitän war nicht dabei, aber zwei gute Angestellte. In englisch wurde dann alles erklärt. Aber wer auch kein Englisch versteht, bekommt auch so genug mit. Der gefangene Thunfisch wurde gleich an bord gebraten. War sehr lecker. Ich empfehle die Tour. Zieht euch keine gute Kleidung an.

It was an incredibly interesting adventure! The whole family was delighted, especially my ten-year-old son. The captain Hellenthal and his assistant Jesus are real fishing professionals, which always ready to help if something goes wrong. A real vacation full of unforgettable experiences. Unfortunately, we did not catch big fish, but we caught a variety of fish one by one. Thank you very much!

We left the port a 2 pm in search of tuna, trolling for 3 hours and watching dolphins and whales it was very relaxing with plenty of refreshments on board the boat, unfortunately we did not catch any tuna but the last hour we had a chance to do some fishing on the bottom of the seabed and my son and I caught 6 fish of various species. All in all a lovely day and I would definitely recommend it..... tight lines 🎣

Great morning out. Well organised. Friendly. Knowledgeable. And loads of fun. Would have given 5 stars if we’d caught a big one. But we did catch loads of smaller fish so plenty of action - and 4 stars!
