Deep Sea Fishing
It's not the size of your rod...
Do battle with the marine life of the Mediterranean in this Barcelona deep sea fishing experience, that pits you in a fair fight with some of the fastest fins in the West. You’ll charter a skippered boat for the day from a nearby marina, and sail out into deep waters several nautical miles from the coast, before weighing anchor and casting your hook out to sea. With some expert guidance you’ve got a genuine chance of reeling in garfish, hake, sea bass and even big game like tuna (for the latter we suggest you choose charter Boat 1 for the full 9 hours). And if you don’t get lucky you can always practice those fishermen’s tales on the way back to Barcelona!
Overall the activity offers a fantastic day out full of camaraderie, Spanish sunshine, the majesty of the ocean, cold beers and the chance to spot whales, dolphins and turtles swimming in the surf – and one of the highlights will be cooking the fish you catch afterwards at a local Catalan Restaurant.
The experience is suitable for both novices and expert fishers, and the price includes licenses, rods, live bait and all the equipment you need for trolling, ground-fishing, spinning and chumming (four different techniques you might try), plus of course your boat hire and captain.
Check below more info on the boats on offer and the prices. We’re confident these are the best value angling experiences on offer on the Costa Brava. The activity is available virtually year-round thanks to the great local weather, and the captain(s) speaks English, German, French and Spanish.

This is a longboat for coastal fishing only, but perfect for stag groups thanks to its large size. Up to ten can fish at one time, whilst the rest can have a beer or a swim. For a taste of angling in a fun environment, on a very affordable boat, look no further.
Boat 3: Es Cau
