During our sailing catamaran tours, it is also possible to practice fishing, since we have fishing rods on the bow of the catamaran, as well as lures.
Additionally, our crew will gladly assist you while we sail, to hopefully catch some fish.
Some of the most common species that can be caught are Roosterfish, Tuna, Macarela, Jacks, Ojaran, Wahoo and Dorado or Mahi Mahi.
At the sites where we anchor, clients can still do a little more spin fishing, to see if they are lucky enough to catch a fish.
