Top Fishing Charters in Canary Islands


The Canary Islands are not only one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations. They’realso one home to some of the best fishing grounds in Europe. The subtropical climate makes them an excellent vacation spot, as well as a great habitat for fish. You’ll find plenty to catch all year round on your Canary Islands fishing charter.

You can start off the year in January with fish like Mackerel and Barracuda. In March you’ll encounter Albacore, Bigeye and Yellowfin Tuna. These make way for White Marlin in May. June marks the start of big game season, as Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi and Wahoo arrive. And September is a good month to fish for various Seabreams, before Mackerel and Barracuda rule the waters again.

For an entirely different adventure, try fishing for Carp and Black Bass on Gran Canaria. There are several dams, lakes, and rivers that have excellent freshwater fishing if you’re not the seafaring kind, or if you’re simply looking for some variety.

In Tenerife, you’ll find the largest selection of fishing charters and therefore the largest variety of fishing trips. Choose between shorter adventures fishing along the coast, or go for a long trip to troll for Marlin and Tuna. The smaller islands of La Gomera, La Palma, and El Hierro are all about big game – they have great access to offshore fishing grounds. And if you’re looking for Tuna, definitely visit Lanzarote.
 

Rules & Regulations

Fishing in the Canary Islands requires you to have a fishing license. The type of license you need depends on where you want to fish. Licenses can be bought from the local authorities and are valid for 3 years. Teenagers need parental authorization. If you are fishing with a charter, your license is usually included in the price.

January
Thanks to the warm weather, you can escape the January blues with a trip to the Canaries. Get out on the water and target delicious inshore species or Bigeye and Albacore Tuna offshore.
 
February
“Carnaval” lights up the Canaries, with Tenerife standing out as the epicenter of this traditional celebration. Get ready to be dazzled by the show across the island!
 
March
The fishing season is warming up with the arrival of more Tuna and an abundance of delicious nearshore fish, giving you the extra chance to fill the boat. 
 
April
Between escaping the winter blues and the peak season, April is one of the best months to visit the Canaries. Take advantage of cheaper hotel rates, while the fishing is as good as ever!
 
May
Big game fishing season is almost here, as Bluefins and Yellowfins start to make their way through the Canaries and White Marlin put on a show for you to behold.
 
June
There’s no doubt that the season has arrived as Blue Marlin and Mahi Mahi join the party, giving you the chance to target some of the most sought-after fish in the ocean.
 
July
As peak holiday season hits, the fishing is in full swing, too. Escape the crowded beaches with a trip to sea that promises plenty of delicious nearshore and monster offshore fish to target.
 
August
There’s no sign of the red hot fishing letting up as big game fish make themselves at home in the deep waters, giving you the chance to land a trophy-sized Marlin, Tuna, and many more. 
 
September
While Marlin and Mahi Mahi make their way out of the Canaries, the nearshore fishing is heating up once again. With some Tuna and Wahoo still offshore, you won’t regret a trip in September.
 
October
Monster Bluefin Tuna and Amberjack make their way back onto the scene when October hits. Get out on the water and see how the fishing simply doesn’t let up.
 
November
If anything, the fishing is getting better as the year draws to a close. Bigeyes join the Bluefins to make the Canaries a Tuna fishing paradise, so come and fill the boat with something tasty. 
 
December
What better way to end the year than with a holiday? Look back at the year from the beach or, better still, from a boat. Target anything from Mackerel to Tuna and end the year in style!

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.

I went for an eight hour trolling trip with captain Pedro and deckhand Pepe. I was late in the season for marlin but one of the boats near us, caught a blue marlin, about 200 kg. Sadly we didn't have any strikes at all. But as I use to say... A bad days fishing is better than a good day at work.

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.

I always have low expectations of catching on sport fishing trips, it’s the nature of the sport, so it was so exciting to firstly catch 2 Bonito in the first hour and then a 300lb Blue Marlin in the second! Pedro was great, really friendly and helpful and encouraging, I really enjoyed the experience and would recommend Go Fish to anyone holidaying in GC who wants to have a crack at catching a monster! My arms ache but it was an experience I will never forget!

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!
