Prince Edward Island | Canada | Bluefin Tuna

Tour code: CAN011  
Overview
Category: Big Game Fishing

If you are in search of a true specimen, then Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia is the place for you. The Bluefin Tuna that surround this Island are beasts and will test any angler to his limit. These huge Tuna grow in excess of 1000lb’s and are caught regularly by anglers on stand up and fight gear, but make sure you take your “A” game as these fish fight dirty.

We have for a long time been looking for such a destination that offers the real specimen hunter a chance to do battle with some of the worlds largest Tuna. If you have ever researched ‘The Worlds Best Giant Bluefin Tuna fishing’, then it will take you straight to this little Island in Canada called Prince Edward Island. You just have to look at our Captain’s stats to understand why we have chosen to work together.

We use the very best newly custom-built 45ft fiberglass fishing boat and are powered by a 430 horsepower Cummins engine. Onboard it is equipped with top of the line electronics including a 3D bottom charting plotter.

The boat also has radar and is equipped with “structure scan technology” . The captain, Scott, is proud to be the two-time winning boat captain of the Canadian Tuna Cup Tournament. This award is presented to the Captain, who’s charter landed the largest Bluefin Tuna during the competition. Good friend Ken is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having landed the largest Bluefin Tuna ever, weighing in at an unbelievable 1496 pounds!

Prince Edward Island is where our accommodation and boat can be found and is a stunning little piece of paradise, that will keep the most energetic of persons busy.
