Fishing Cape Verde – Blue Marlin capital of the world

Impressive numbers and also good size fish await you and our crew will do everything to make this an unforgettable trip. Even if Blue Marlin are the main goal for many anglers there are plenty of other game fish such as Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish and Jacks. You will be based on Sao Vicente, a Northern island with a population of around 70,000 people. This island offers a bustling marina, good hotels, apartments and restaurants. The Cape Verde archipelago is located around 370 miles off the coast of West Africa and consists of ten volcanic islands. The pleasant climate varies between 25 and 29 °C on average. The official language of Cape Verde is Portugese.

Current season

The current season in Cape Verde for this one boat has been nothing short of spectacular. The numbers below speak for themselves…….
