Seawater fishing is a leisure activity that is often similar to deep-sea fishing. However, you can also try traditional fishing.
Freshwater fishing is less common in this region, but you can still fish in several rivers and lakes.

A multitude of ways to get into fishing!

For sport fishing, also known as deep-sea fishing, set off into the open ocean to catch big fish, such as skipjack tuna, swordfish and more… Be sure to check beforehand, as deep-sea fishing is strictly controlled, and only certain fish can be caught in certain conditions.

 

On fishing tourism excursions, learn more about the work of a fisherman by climbing aboard a traditional fishing boat at dawn, where fishermen will share their passion for the sea and their work.
