Fishing in Mallorca
Mallorca is well known for its sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters. However, it should be noted that this famous tourist destination is much more than a paradise-like island where you can disconnect and get tanned under the sun. For some people, Mallorca is the perfect place to enjoy a lovely afternoon on a fishing charter and catch a few fish. In fact, regarding big game fishing, Mallorca clearly has one specific target fish: the bluefin tuna.
In this regard, it is important to highlight that, thanks to the number of captains who put at our disposal their fishing charters and know-how, competing with these extremely good fighters is currently something anybody can do with a little bit of time, practice and guidance. In consequence, it is safe to say that whether you are a fishing amateur or professional, there is a place for you to fish in Mallorca!
Deep-sea fishing trips around Mallorca
As has already been pointed out, many captains in Mallorca offer us a rather different experience on the island by letting us book their deep-sea fishing charter for a day. Naturally, this service not only includes fishing tackle, gear and bait, but also the captain himself. That is obviously the most important part since without a captain to guide and help us it is quite impossible to make the most of a fishing day in Mallorca.
Now, when it comes to deep-sea fishing trips in Mallorca, it is not surprising that there is a wide range of companies to choose from—which is why it can be quite difficult to decide the right fishing trip for you and your family or friends. For this reason, in this article we will provide you with the best fishing charter in Mallorca so that you can book your experience with your mind at rest knowing you are making a good decision.
Best Mallorca Fishing charters
Currently, there are not many fishing charters in Mallorca, though it is true that the best of them all is, by far, Fishing Mallorca. Why? Well, the reason is simple: Fishing Mallorca is the only company in the industry that has fishing charter boats specialising in giant bluefin tuna (the jewel in Mallorca’s fishing crown). Besides, its captain Toni Riera has more than 15 years’ experience in the sector organising big game fishing trips in Mallorca from both port of Palma and port of Alcudia.
On the other hand, it goes without saying that Fishing Mallorca is one of the first fishing companies in Mallorca, which means that its crew are used to dealing with all kinds of situations. They take care of everything so that their clients get to live the experience they were looking for. In fact, Fishing Mallorca offers 3 different services so that users can book the one which best suits their needs. Such services are big game fishing, light trolling, and family fishing; which can last from 3 to 8 hours (depending on the option).
Sharing a fishing experience
To offer a useful opinion, we decided to contact one of the clients of Fishing Mallorca to share their experience with us. This is what Karl Kratz told us:
‘We fished at the end of May with Toni Riera as captain, and the experience was truly amazing. I decided to book a whole fishing charter, known as Rodman 34, for me and my family while we were spending our holidays in Mallorca. We chose www.fishingmallorca.com because it seemed professional and offered a reasonable price for deep sea fishing in Mallorca.
The day before the fishing trip, captain Toni contacted us and offered to let us go on a different day because the weather was predicted to be better, which is something we really appreciated. We departed on a sunny morning at 10:00 p.m., and within a few hours, we were literally in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. There, Toni started chumming and gave us some useful tips to maximise our fishing experience, and we certainly did! In a matter of minutes, my wife caught our first fish. It was a huge bluefin tuna. And that was just the beginning. At the end of the day we got 5 fish, all tagged and released. We are really happy with the experience, it is absolutely worth it. Toni is a super experienced captain, and this is a world-class fishery for bluefin tuna. Highly recommend.’
