Blue Marlin Fishing | La Gomera | Canary Islands


Tour code: TEN002  

La Gomera is the ideal big game fishing destination for anyone who does not like long flights. It is also perfect for a family fishing holiday as the island is packed with other attractions to keep the entire family entertained.  You will be fishing some of Europe’s most prolific waters for species such as Blue Marlin and massive Giant Bluefin Tuna. A big advantage of this fishing holiday is that all fishing tackle is included.


La Gomera is one of the smaller of the Canary Islands, situated 20 miles south-west of Tenerife. The island has no international airport so has been relatively untouched by tourism thus keeping its local charm and beauty. The island is easily accessible via various ferry services throughout the day from Los Cristianos on the south coast of Tenerife

La Gomera offers good local food and drink. There are several great little restaurants in the capital where the marina and accommodation are. Food and drink are very cheap which is an added bonus. There are various shops and supermarkets all in within 10 mins walk from the boat.

You will fish the calm waters in the lee of the island, which are only five minutes from the marina. These calm waters are home to world record Blue Marlin, Bluefin Tuna, Bigeye Tuna, Albacore, Yellowfin, Spearfish and White Marlin.


The two main target species are Tuna and Blue Marlin, both of these species grow to a huge size in these waters with the Giant Bluefin Tuna reaching 700lb and Blue Marlin exceeding 1000lb. Other species you may catch are Spearfish, White Marlin, Makos and Wahoo.

The season for the Giant Bluefin Tuna is February to May and in some years the Tuna have been caught as early as mid-January. Blue Marlin season runs from May to end of October and each year anglers boat fish reaching 1000lb with the most common size being around 600lb.

The skipper and deckhand take fish conservation seriously. For any fishery to be sustainable we need to not only release fish but make sure that when we do, they are in great condition to breed and fight another day. Bait and switch techniques with circle hooks are used for Marlin and Tuna. This is because it is far more ethical and less damaging to the fish as in most cases the hook sets in the scissor of the jaw, which facilitates the easy release and prevents foul hooking. This also has the benefit of being able to match the tackle to the fish, unlike lure fishing.

The fishing hours normal depart marina of San Sebastian at 9:30 am and head out to the fishing grounds, 5 minutes from the Harbour. The boat then heads back to the marina for around 5:30 pm, 8 hrs later. Onboard, there will be food and drink included and all of your tackle will be provided.


Jason Pipe and his crew of numerous skippers and deckhands will be looking after you whilst out fishing. All of the skippers have wired some incredible fish in their lifetime and you will soon realise from the work ethics why they are the most used team on La Gomera.

Other Activities

There are daily flights from most parts of Europe so we can extend your stay so you can experience the stunning island. We have listed below a few of the Islands natural attractions that are well worth a visit:

  • Parque Nacional de Garajonay – La Gomera’s prime attraction, the magical, often- misty Parque Nacional de Garajonay extends across 40 sq km of dense, primeval forest and is something you simply must visit as it’s very much like stepping back in time.
  • Drago de Agalán – Visit the island’s oldest Drago (dragon tree) rests in the palmed lined valley, 2 km north of Alajeró.
  • Parque Etnográfico Los Telares – A reconstructed 19th-century gofio (roasted Canarian grain) mill sits at the heart of this multifaceted private ethnographic centre, which also takes in a traditional, self-sufficient organic orchard and a gallery showcasing the local rural lifestyle, typical crafts, Silbo Gomero and the island’s history

Parador La Gomera

The hotel we have chosen for this big game trip is a very charming quiet hotel that benefits from panoramic views of San Sebastian’s harbour. It is located a short 10-minute taxi ride away from all the many harbourside restaurants and cafes, where you spend a lazy day watching the million-pound yachts rocking gently in the harbour.

The Hotel

We have two swimming pools available and is the ideal spot to sip a cocktail whilst watching the world go by. This little piece of paradise only has 54 twin rooms, 4 double-bedded rooms and 2 junior suites. As their guest, you will feel the attention to detail and will soon feel like you are an individual because the gardens and the pool terraces are large and one never feels crowded.

Our standard rooms mostly have garden views and even some have their own private terrace, the superior rooms have fantastic views over the sea. All our rooms are very neat and elegant and all have private bathrooms, satellite TV, free safe, hairdryer and mini-bar.

Food & Drink

In their very own restaurant called Restaurante Especia Parador de le Gomera, you will find a wide range of local dishes all served from local products and put together by in house chefs. The meals vary and you can expect to see on the menu local dishes as well as the more popular western-style dishes. At the onsite bar you can choose from local drinks, local beers and also more famous drinks, or why not try one of their homemade cocktails which are a perfect blend of fruits and spirits. Breakfast is served in the restaurant each day and consists of a buffet-style continental breakfast with fresh meats, cheeses, jams and spreads, cereals, fresh fruit and all the normal drinks. If you fancy something a little different then simply as your waiter/waitress for the menu.

On Location

In and around the hotel you will find swimming pools with sun loungers and sun terrace, sports activities which include table tennis and golf and also a big bonus a private beach. In and around the island there are many tourist attractions which can all be booked at the hotel reception. They have full detailed lists of activities that can be booked or why not head out on one of the local buses and explore a little. There is a fantastic marina called San Sebastian located a short 10-minute taxi ride from the hotel where you can at your leisure, browse around the many little shops, cafes and restaurants or simply sit and relax whilst watching the huge Yachts come in and out of the marina.

The below itinerary is only a suggested one, as we have daily flights departing from the UK, therefore should you wish to extend your stay with either more fishing days or free days, the itinerary below can be tailored to suit.

Day 1:

Depart UK (alternative routes available)
Arrive Tenerife South

On arrival, you will make your way outside the terminal building, where you will take a taxi to Los Cristianos Ferry Terminal (taxi not included). Alternatively, there is a kiosk at the airport who will be more than happy to help you book a taxi. Once you arrive at the ferry terminal, you will make your way through the building to the waiting area. The ferry crossing takes around 45 – 60 minutes.

Once you have arrived on the island of La Gomera, take a taxi to The Parador Hotel (taxi not included).

Overnight accommodation: The Parador Hotel (Twin room) B/B

Day 2: Fishing Day

At the pre-agreed time, you will meet your captain at the Marina for your full 8 hours fishing onboard our Big Game boat. Our guides will let you get as involved as you wish, why not have a go at rigging the lines or just sit back and relax. The main target will be Blue Marlin however they do get the odd Dorado so make sure you stay alert as you never know when the rod may go off.

Overnight accommodation: The Parador Hotel (Twin room) B/B

Day 3: Fishing Day

Our boat is a fish catching machine and has been fishing these waters for years and there is not much the crew do not know. They will take great care of you and try their hardest to make your dreams come true. With all Big Game fishing especially Marlin fishing can be a waiting game but when that rod does go off and the reel is screaming you will need to have your wits about you as you will need to be prepared straight away to ensure no fish is lost. If there is more than one person on the boat, always ensure you know who’s turn on the rod it is before the bite happens.

Overnight accommodation: The Parador Hotel (Twin room) B/B

Day 4:

At around lunchtime, once you have checked out of your hotel, take a taxi for your short transfer back to the Port of San Sebastian for your ferry crossing back to Los Cristianos (taxi not included). Once the ferry arrives at Los Cristianos, make your way out of the ferry port and take a taxi back to Tenerife South Airport

Depart Tenerife
Arrive UK

Questions & Answers

Where is the hotel?

We have the option of two different hotels, the first one which is an adult-only hotel is called the Parador Hotel which is full of charm and character located on the side of a cliff overlooking the port of San Sebastian and with a short 5-minute taxi ride you will find yourself in the heart of all the cafes, bars and restaurants. The other hotel is the Hotel Jardin Tecina, it is a great place to spend your holiday and is family-friendly with swimming pools and is closer to the beaches and restaurants. Both hotels are perfectly suited to take full advantage of the amazing fishing that La Gomera has built for its self.

Where will I fish?

The Canary Islands with the Atlantic Ocean on their doorstep are blown by a northeasterly wind called the Trade Wind which blows fairly constant during the summer months and because La Gomera is high, where we fish in the south, it is completely protected and flat calm. Due to the volcanic nature of the island, we are also fishing close to shore due to the quick drop off. This means that there are no long runs to the fishing grounds giving us longer time actually fishing, starting just outside the marina.

How long does it take to reach the fishing grounds?

As mentioned above, the fishing starts almost the moment you leave the marina due to how steep the terrain is, meaning no time is wasted by motoring out miles. The Giant Bluefin Tuna fishing is a little different as these can be some way out. Our skipper is in constant contact with the commercial boats so in the months of February to May he gets up to date information on the fish’s location.

What fish will I catch?

The two main species found in these waters are the Blue Marlin and the Giant Bluefin Tuna. Both these fish reach over 500lb and give the best fight and sometimes can last a few hours. Our boat is set up for this style of fishing.

How many fish will I catch?

As with any specimen fishing and when hunting large fish, it is a waiting game, especially for the Blue Marlin. Anglers spend many hours and sometimes many days chasing one fish but when you get that Blue Marlin and all hell breaks loose you will soon forget the hours spent fishing for them. On the other hand, the Giant Bluefin Tuna is a little more obliging and the captain can almost guarantee at least a hook up each day, it just then down to you if you can land it. 

How will I fish?

The guys at Team Bocinegro take fish conservation seriously.  For any fishery to be sustainable we need to not only release fish but make sure that when we do, they are in great condition to breed and fight another day. Bait and switch is the most exciting technique for Marlin.  If you are unfamiliar with it what we do is, we tease the Marlin right up to the back of the boat and then pitch a dead bait to it. Watching the dark looming shape of a Blue Marlin following and slashing at bait only a few meters behind the back of a boat makes an incredible sight to see even before you catch your fish. When you are Tuna fishing they tend to use circle hooks only. A great hook up to catch ratio which also allows the release of the fish in perfect condition if needed.  When fishing Big Tuna this is especially important as they are such powerful. 

Do the guides speak English?

The guides and Captain speak perfect English.

Who is best suited to this destination?

This destination is perfect for a huge variety of anglers from beginners to the most expert of anglers. The boat team will help you with every style of fishing and if you have never fished for hard fighting species before they will give you as much help as you need.

What skill level is required?

General knowledge of fishing from a boat is an advantage but not necessary. The guides are there to help you achieve what you want out of your holiday.

How physically demanding is this trip?

The trip is not that physical apart from playing the fish. The boat is very easy to walk around with a big fishing platform at the rear.

When is the best time to go?

There are two seasons for the two main species. The first is from February to May this is the perfect Giant Bluefin Tuna time. Then the Blue Marlin start to show around the middle of May and can fish all the way through to September.

How will I get there?

There are many different flights with many different flight companies from all over the UK. Just ask a member of our team if we can fly you from your local airport.

What is the accommodation like?

We can offer two different styles of accommodation, the first is the Parador which is an adult-only hotel. This hotel is full of charm and elegance and benefits from panoramic views of the Atlantic ocean. The hotel is decorated as if it were a keepsake of the age of Columbus when ships departed the island-bound for the Americas.

The other hotel we use, Hotel Jardín Tecina is a lovely hotel and welcomes families of any size. With many swimming pools, 7 restaurants, Spa, golf course, 5 tennis courts, Squash court and many other activities it truly is a little piece of paradise and the perfect base for an exciting family getaway with some of Europes best fishing

What is the food like?

At both hotels, the food is wonderful and freshly prepared by local chefs. Many of the items on offer are grown locally and fresh each day. There is a huge selection at both hotels from English cuisine to more local dishes.

Is fishing tackle provided?

All fishing tackle is included and is of a high standard.

Is internet and phone signal available?

The phone signal is very good around the island and at each hotel, you will get Free WiFi.

Are there other activities available?

As mentioned, there are daily flights from most parts of Europe so we can extend your stay so you can see some of the island which is absolutely stunning and well worth taking an extra day or two to explore. We have listed below a few of the islands natural attractions that are well worth a visit:

  • Parque Nacional de Garajonay – La Gomera’s prime attraction, the magical, often- misty Parque Nacional de Garajonay extends across 40 sq km of dense, primaeval forest and is something you simply must visit as it’s very much like stepping back in time.
  • Drago de Agalán – Visit the island’s oldest Drago (dragon tree) rests in the palmed lined valley, 2 km north of Alajeró.
  • Parque Etnográfico Los Telares – A reconstructed 19th-century gofio (roasted Canarian grain) mill sits at the heart of this multifaceted private ethnographic centre, which also takes in a traditional, self-sufficient organic orchard and a gallery showcasing the local rural lifestyle, typical crafts, Silbo Gomero and the island’s history.

How much does it cost?

We offer you the complete package including all flights and transfers. To view all available weeks and prices click the Dates & Prices tab above.

Alternatively, if you wish to arrange all our own travel we can book just the lodge and fishing for you. If you wish to book or have any questions please feel free to call our offices on 01603 407596.




First day caught a Marlin, boat fantastic. Wedding Anniversary 2 Marlin Caught, my wife caught so did I.

Peter the captain was brilliant and the crew were the best. Fantastic holiday

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Hello Kevin, a huge congratulations to both yourself and Sharon. Must of been an awesome experience and what a day to catch one each. Well done

All the best



Most memorable moments when I caught a Marlin and Kevin caught one on our wedding anniversary. Next time the flight need to be nearer to Milton Keynes. The hotel was great, the whole holiday was fantastic your organisation was fantastic

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Hello Sharon, really please you both caught your Marlin. La Gomera is fishing so well for big Blue Marlin and glad you got to see them. Thank you for your kind words

All the best



Fishing was great, Jason + crew are excellent and incredibly experienced with some of the best kit + boat and great hosts on the boat (definitely recommend him).
There was a trousers for dinner policy at the hotel which seemed strange, as it was't a posh hotel. I did't take any trousers, so we had to eat out. We did not mind as there was good places in town. Food on the boat was good.

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Hi Henry, thanks for your feedback form. Some very useful tips for future travellers especially about the trousers at dinner policy which we were unaware of.

We get such good feedback from anglers who fish with Jason.

Hopefully you will our services again for any future trips.

All the best



Raising the marlin to the teasers, what a stunning creature , sadly they would not come to the bait but worth it just to see the two Fish that came up. What an amazing colour these fish are an iridescent cobalt blue when aggressive /excited. Will go again some time, I have to catch one!!

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Hello Neil, do not know what happened with your feedback form and the name fields. Just tested one and works fine. Anyway, thanks for filling out your form. Such a shame one of those huge Marlin did not take your bait but at least you got to see them.

Hopefully I will catch up with you soon Neil

All the best



Great hotel. Great boat and Crew lovely location

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Hello Michael, glad you liked it. The boat is an awesome fishing catching machine with the very best crew. Hopefully you will go back next year for your big Marlin

All the best



I fished with Bocinegro in August and had a great time . Great captain and crew.

State of the art equipment and fantastic fishing.

Caught 3 big blue marlin in 4 days bait and switch fishing.

We a had many more chances.

Liked it so much we are going back in a few weeks

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

3 Blues in only 4 days fishing, no body could complain about that. The boat and crew really do push the boundaries to make sure our customers get on to fish.

They look after everyone so well.

Thanks of the review.


Jason and Bocinegro only rarely fail to be the high flag boat in Gomera

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Jason and his team are always doing the business for your customers, still a 100% record with no complaints whats so ever. So that makes everyone happy.

Tight Lines


Sherrell and I could not have enjoyed our trip to La Gomera more…a great captain and crew, super comfortable boat, perfect weather, and an IGFA BLUE MARLIN WORLD RECORD!!

Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful trip…your total commitment to achieving our goal was a crucial element to our success.

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Congratulations on the new world record.

Plus thank you for the destination review, everyone loves Jason and his team.


I cant recommend Team Bocinegro enough – if you fancy some serious Bait & Switch Marlin J’s your man. (And if you’ve had enough of the cold & rain in February he’s worth a call to see if the Tuna are biting! – take the wife, stay at the Parador and earn some brownie points!

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Great review and we agree a great destination to take the wife.

Kind Regards


Fishing out of La Gomera on July 24 & 25.

First day no fish or takes (no fish caught on other boats either).

Second day two blue marlin caught. The first was estimated at 600lb and the second at 800lb. Both fish went deep and took off large quantities of line, the first one down to the backing. They took approx 30 and 45 mins respectively to bring to the boat. It was like a double gym session: I was exhausted. I prayed (successfully) that we wouldn't have any further takes.

Both fish were tagged, revived and successfully swam away. The boat crew were excellent: skipper was Mark Lee, originally from Sunderland.

I also had a dorado.

I will send photos separately.

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Mr Ball sorry I missed you when you popped in the office but what a couple of days fishing you had.

A 600lb and 800lb Blue Marlin fish of a lifetime, I bet that was a real fantastic fight and one you will not forget for a while.

Also thanks for the pictures we have put them on our company Facebook page.

Just like to thank you for using our services and hope that you will consider us again for any future fishing trips.

Kind Regards Peter


I Cannot recommend Tenerife / La Gomera fishing enough, with so many epic fish, great food and first class service this will no doubt be one of the best fishing holiday venues in the world - i cannot wait to go back

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Glad you had an awesome time. can't wait to see the pictures. i heard you managed something very special. Hopefully get to speak with you soon




Dear Peter

Having returned from our family holiday to La Gomera I wanted to say a big thank you for sorting this our for us. We have had a fantastic time at the Jardin Tecnica and have had one of the best holidays I have had in my life.

The hotel was amazing, it offered everything we wanted for a family holiday and with all the sports on offer my 16 year old son had plenty to do, (mind you he did run us around as well). The food was out of this world and they even served sparkling wine with breakfast. The staff were incredibly helpful and we felt special the whole time we were there.

The entertainment team Omah and Eva to mention just two were really helpful, they worked really hard to supply a wide variety of activities, without being over pushy. This all added to the enjoyment of the holiday for our 16 year old son.

The duplex suit was the best room I have ever had and the sun terrace on the top was fantastic in the heat of the mid day sun. It had a wonderful wooden gazebo with slatted top that gave dappled shade and a cooling breeze gently blew over us as we sat on the huge circular day bed, with either a beer or cup of tea in hand.

The swimming pools were all immaculate with more than enough sun beds (no need to get up early to put your towel down), and in the smaller swimming pool by our room there were a lot of times we were the only people in it.

With me earning the voucher you supplied to Bauer, this made this an affordable holiday for us and without that we would never have been about to enjoy this experience, so again a very big thank you for that.

Should you wish to use any of my comments to other holiday makers in the future when they are considering holidays please feel free to do so.

All in all amazing.
Thank you.


Reply from Sportquest Holidays


Thank you for such a detailed review as we appreciate it and I am sure the staff at the hotel will also along with future customers looking for detailed reviews.

It is comments like this that make our daily jobs all the more enjoyable.

I enjoyed talking to you this morning and listening to just how over the moon you and all your family were with it all.

I look forward in looking after you all again one day soon.

Regards Peter


Hi Mel, thanks for your help putting this together at such short notice. Us old boys owe you a drink as we all caught fish and were more than happy with everything. Top marks Sportquest Holidays you have gained your selves four keen anglers for the rest of our angling lives

Thanks, Roy, David, Charles and Ian

Hello Roy, David, Charles and Ian

That was my pleasure, you were so happy every time we spoke that it was a pleasure dealing with you and your party.



PS mine is a brandy and coke


Thanks guys for organising a great holiday. Brilliant fishing and great boat and crew. Recommend for a short cheap getaway

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Thank you Gary for your kind words. We aim to please




We just wanted to send in our feed back and hopefully help others when travelling to La Gomera:

Firstly, we had a great time but the fishing was poor due to the weather. On our first day out we had to come back in after 3 hours of fishing due to strong winds and was not offered any refunds. i understand that the guys have wages etc to pay but maybe a half day at the end would of been nice.

Secondly, the Hotel we stayed in was fantastic, but was not very child friendly very small pool and no other activities. We did mention this to Paul on our return and he had said that you have other hotels in La Gomera that are more suitable for families

Apart from the above we were very happy with the rest of the holiday and the travelling went very smoothly. The paper work we received from day 1 all was very professional and we would be more than happy to use you again

Thanks the Moore family

Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Hi Lisa

Thank you for your feedback it is very important for us to receive every ones feedback as we try very hard to act where we can on fixing any issues

Unfortunately if the captain of the boat decides that the weather is good enough to go out and then turns bad that you will not receive any refund. I can kind of understand the reasons for this as he is there to catch you fish and will try and do this at any cost, unfortunately the winds did pick up again and after steaming out to the fishing grounds and trolling for a little while he has used a lot of fuel and still had to pay for his crews wages.

In relation to the Hotel not being child friendly, we now do offer a family package to La Gomera with the hotel being in the main part of La Gomera with big swimming pools and activities for children so this will not happen again

I hope this has helped and you may wish to visit La Gomera once again




Just a quick note to thank Paul for organising our stag do at the last minute. The accommodation was a little on the quiet side but a quick taxi trip in to town solved that. Plenty of bars and restaurants

The fishing boat and crew were spot on and tried very hard all day. We managed a few fish but nothing massive.

The only moan is that the taxi to the ferry port and the other side was a little expensive but thats nothing to do with you. We felt we should of been made aware of the price

All in all we had a great trip


Reply from Sportquest Holidays

Thanks Stuart i shall pass on your kind words to Paul who is off guiding in Norway. We do now offer two different hotels, one that is quiet and has stunning views over the marina and one that is in town and much nearer the bars and restaurant

Glad you got on with the skipper and crew, they are one of the best on the Island

We understand about the Taxi and we now inform people that they will have to pay for the Taxi and that we can not include it in the price

Once again thank you for your feed back and i shall mention it to Paul
