“The Team of Mar Balear Fishing Adventures is striving for a fundamental goal. When guests leaving the boat with a big smile and the words, we are coming back, we are happy because we achieved this goal. We ar also very happy because this happens quite often! If told by a group of anglers who experienced with us one or more awesome days of fishing on sea. If told by the family who enjoyed a great day offshore or the anglers who took full moon chance and had a successful catch of swordfish in the night. We go beyond fishing to ensure a comfortable time on board. Excitement and thrill are provided by the strong fishes at our spots. Our competent guides with many years of experience in these waters ensure the fishing success. We offer different tours.

Sample Premium itinerary:
After a welcome drink on the flybridge we leave Cala d’Or in the late evening. The Beneteau Swift 35 Trawler will be brought on speed, to quickly cover the journey of 60 nautical miles. We pass the island of Cabrera and halfway between Mallorca and Ibiza we reach the extraordinary hot spot Banco de Emile Baudot in the first dawn. This is a plateau that rises from the depths to about 100 meters. It is easy to imagine, that there live many different species of fish. So also a lot of baitfish and these are followed by the great predators of the Mediterranean Sea. Big tunas over 300kg or swordfish over 100kg have been caught here already. Also fishing for other species, such as Jon Dorys, Besugos or rays holds here some surprises. The answer on the question, what to catch here, the answer is:
Above all, bigger!
Towards evening, we switch to swordfish mounts, because the chances of catching the monsters of the deep, i.e. big swordfish, are very good here. If you like, you can fish for nocturnal fish such as conger or squid.
When the sun rises again, the rods are reeled in after a good breakfast. Now we troll along the Emile Baudot edge back to Cala d’Or with excellent chances of catching albacores, spearfish, skipjacks and big mahi mahis.
Depending on how often the catches of the aforementioned fish stop us, we reach the harbor after 8-9 hours. A very special tour with the use of different fishing techniques and the possibility to catch very big and very different fish.
This is a very special tour, because it is very rich in variety. Besides the chance to catch many fish species in considerable sizes, there is also the possibility to experience different fishing techniques.
Mar Balear Fishing Adventures feature two identical Bénéteau Trawlers. They are 11.50 m long, powered by a 430 hp Cummins diesel. Built in 2019, the boats are equipped with all safety elements to meet the german Flag/BG Verkehr standard. We also comply with the Spanish safety requirements.
Comfortably equipped with 6 berths, indoor and outdoor shower and toilet.
Galley with gas cooker and oven, fridge with freezer compartment.
All necessary fishing equipment is on board
We use two identical boats of this type: Pilar II and Carla II. It simplifies our organization, especially because we occasionally have groups of 8 anglers on board. It is much more comfortable for our guests to divide groups of this size between two boats. In addition, both boats can fish at different spots to increase the chances.
