Water activities Lanzarote: deep sea fishing
Deep sea fishing is a very popular activity in Lanzarote. Use your vacation to go out on a specially equipped boat on the Atlantic and try your luck with fishing.
There are different ways of fishing from a boat in Lanzarote. Both trolling and bottom fishing are practiced on the trips. When we are trolling, we cast the lines at full speed and try to fish medium-sized predatory fish such as goldfish, tuna, marlin and wahoo.
When bottom fishing, we stop our boat at one of the many fishing spots on Lanzarote and try to catch smaller fish from the bottom. Just the boat trip on the open Atlantic makes these tours a real experience. The chance to see flying fish or dolphins on the way is higher than on any other boat trip on Lanzarote.
It is also possible to charter a fishing boat privately. Contact us for more details and indivdual offers!
