The coast of Sal Island, on the Cape Verde archipelago, is home to a wide range of species. Enjoy a boat ride, and learn to fish in this stunning part of the Atlantic ocean.
Fishing on Sal Island
The tour meets at the selected time at the Santa Maria pier, and from here we'll climb aboard a fishing boat in search of the most succulent catch in the Atlantic!
During the ride, your crew will teach you the basics of the kind of open water fishing known as Trolling, whereby multiple lines are dragged through the water: especially good for catching predatory fish.
Among these species are fish such as barracuda, tuna, and marlin. These last animals, easy to spot in open water thanks to their distinctive sail shaped fins, can reach lengths of up to three metres and weigh up to 220 lbs (100kg).
You'll learn the tricks of the trade from the experts, allowing you to make the most of your time at sea with a great haul. Then after four hours, we'll take you back to the start point at the Santa Maria pier.
