La Gomera is the third smallest island from the eight main islands of the Canary islands. It is located 200 miles from the Northwest coast of Africa. The landscape is lush and hilly with the highest point of 1 487 meter above sea level. This iconic volcano island is 25 km wide with an area of 372 km² and has around 23 000 inhabitants where fishing and agriculture is the main occupation but tourism is growing every year. The name Gomera is derived from the Guanches, a tribe originating from the north part of Morocco. This tribe had their own language, a whistled speech called Silbo Gomera and this is still being used by the locals to communicate with each other.
La Gomera is also known to be the last port before Christofer Columbus set sail to cross the Atlantic ocean in 1492. His house can be found in the town San Sebastián, where we stay and is open for tourism.
Fishing has always been important for the inhabitants on the island. That’s why many strict rules have been implemented to protect the fish around the island. That’s also the reason why the fishing is so good nowadays. La Gomera is one of the best places on earth to come in contact with giant Bluefin tunas and the majestic Blue marlin. This place has a very low fishing pressure compared to many other famous big game destinations. The few people fishing here have been silent about how good it is and therefore, it has not reached international attention in the same way. We are very proud to have the opportunity to offer fishing trips with one of the best boats, with top class crew for this type of fishing.
La Gomera is a destination for Big Game fishing. In addition to the good fishing for Bluefin tuna and Blue marlin, you will also find fish species such as big Yellowfin tuna, Bigeye tuna, White marlin, Spearfish, Mahi mahi, Wahoo, Albacore, Amberjack and Skipjack in the waters surrounding the island.
