Sea Fishing

The deep sea fishing in Cape Verde is hard to rival and there is often the opportunity to fish with the locals who use harpoons to catch lobster, octopus and parrotfish, as well as using specialist companies.

The channel between Santo Antão and São Vicente and the waters off Sal are a perfect spot to find huge blue marlin.  The average size of the marlin caught here is approx 200- 300 kilos, but due to some 'whoppers' caught in the deep waters around the archipelago, Cape Verde is quickly getting the reputation as one of the hottest new fishing spots in the world.  Fishing runs from mid-March to the end of November but the best time is between June and Sept.  As well as Marlin, Cape Verde also boasts good numbers of wahoo, big tuna and sharks.
