Famous destination for marlin fishing, Cape Verde and the outskirts of Santo Antao Island are also great playgrounds for jigging, popping and other lure anglers.

Surrounded by very steep drop offs, the coast of the island is a perfect hunting area for large predatory fish that benefit Cape Verde from abundant food carried by the powerful currents of the Atlantic Ocean.

Located on the western part of the island, the traditional fishing village of Tarrafal is the starting point of our fishing trip in Cape Verde. Still safe from the mass fishing tourism, it is a real paradise for fishermen looking for adventure. This is where you will discover the authentic sea fishing in Cape Verde !

Pleasant to live and safe, this sea fishing trip in Cape Verde will be perfect for any angler looking for exotic fishing and easy access, regardless of the level of fishing.

The program in details

We invite you to discover the richness of sea fishing in Cape Verde during 9 days of stay for 7 days of multi-technical fishing: Jigging / Popping / Night fishing ... We will take advantage of each of our trips to try marlin fishing by trolling. We will discuss each of the fishing techniques in Cape Verde according to the season, weather conditions and fish behavior. We can also decide to focus in particular on a fishing technique according to your desires.

Our fishing trips in Cape Verde are "Catch & Release" but it is possible to keep one fish a day, provided it is not part of one of the endangered species. Fish consumption is not a problem, no disease affects local species. The multiple configurations of this sea fishing trip in Cape Verde will satisfy novice fishermen as well as experienced record hunters.


It is aboard the Bibitonic that we will have the pleasure to welcome you. Open center console type of 9m, it is powered by a Yamaha 60ch High Trust, and equipped with a combination sonar / GPS Humminbird (Type Low 50Khz Probe).

In order to prevent technical incident, the boat has a two-stroke 20hp emergency engine and a 406 MHz satellite distress beacon.

Several stainless steel rod holders are located on the front and back of the boat to accommodate your popping and jigging rods.

Go-Pro mounts have also been installed at the strategic angles of the boat for fishermen wishing to make videos with their own cameras.

An LED lighting system was installed for night fishing, convenient to see clear and reload phosphorescent lures before returning to the abyss.
