Bluefin Tuna Fishing Holidays The fight of your life

Customer Rating 82%

Highly Prized Sportfish

Bluefin Tuna are a highly prized sportfish and an iconic species the world over; they have been recorded up to 1,500lb in weight and rival the Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, and Swordfish as the king of the big game species. They are warm-blooded fish, which can live for up to forty years and grow over four metres in length, and are native to both the western and eastern Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, roaming the vast blue waters searching for food.

Due to their size, speed, and power they display as an apex predator, many anglers search the world high and low for these stunning fish, and they’re certainly on many anglers bucket lists. Once you have hooked a giant Bluefin Tuna, you will be in for one of the most challenging fights of your life, they possess enormous muscular strength that they use for propulsion, and fights can last anything from half-hour to over four hours.

A ferocious predator that can dive to depths of over 1000m, they typically hunt in the upper layers of the ocean, feeding on small fish such as Sardines, Herring, Mackerel and other invertebrates such as Squid and Crustaceans. A popular way of catching these hard-hitting brutes and one of the best is by trolling teasers behind a boat, enticing the fish up and then dropping a dead bait or trolled lure into the depths.

Below are the top destinations in the world for Bluefin Tuna Fishing.
