About Genuine Fishing Crested Wave
We offer a variety of ʻGenuineʻ fishing excursions from a half day 4 hour, or a full day 7 hour trip. On all trips we do a mixture of Game Fish Trolling & Bottom Fishing, approximately half time trolling and half time bottom fishing, depending on what is fishing the best at the time, we use a variety of artificial and dead bait lures on best quality PENN and SHIMANO tackle when trolling for Tunas, Marlin, Wahoo, Dorado, Amberjacks, Barracuda etc, depending on what is in season at the time. The bottom fishing we sometimes do 'Drift Fishingʻ but mostly at anchor, over a specific mark, either the edge of a shelf, or on a line of rock and sand or basically anywhere we see fish showing up on the fish finder screen directly under the boat, it is very precise and effective. We use a mixture of baits, whole fresh caught dead baits on the heavy tackle for Big bottom feeding Flatfish, Snappers, Morays, Amberjacks etc and any big sea bed scavenger species that often take a big bait. Also we use lighter tackle for small to medium fish, and catch the fresh baits for the big rods, like Mackerel,Boga, Herring etc and other good eating fish like Snapper, Sea Bream, Amberjacks, Sea Perch, Trigger fish etc using baited hooks, feathers, artificial baits, just off the sea bed bottom. We practice ‘Catch & Release’ on most fish and any protected species accidentally caught are returned back to the water alive, all Game Billfish like Blue Marlin, White Marlin & Spearfish are always released. We also offer 'Private Charters' and 'Specialist trips' at discounted prices where you can decide want you want to target, we will always advise you as to what is fishing best at the time, as we also want a productive trip. The British owners of the boat and their crew are all fishing enthusiasts with many years experience who know these waters like the back of their hand. We cater for the serious fishermen and are also very willing to teach the novice, set up all the tackle and bait and give any advice and help if needed. Run by Father & Son, Mick and Jack, the Crested Wave has a very well known and respected reputation as a Genuine Fishing excursion. If you are an experienced fisherman you will know nothing is guaranteed when it comes to fishing, but believe us, no boat crew tries harder than the Crested Wave team. We do guarantee you will be very well looked after by the 3 of us, and pride ourselves on our customer service, that is why we are in the top of the reviews and have many regular repeat customers, and is probably the most well known fishing charter boat in Tenerife. Everything is included in the price, no hidden charges! All equipment, tackle, 2 rods each, bait, cold soft drinks, water and beers (food on the 7 hour trip). Full toilet facilities and shade around the whole boat if required. Reservations are normally necessary a few days in advance, but you can always check with us at short notice in case of any cancellations.

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic day out fishing with the Crested Wave crew. This was my first time fishing and now I can't wait to come back! Within the first fishing rod going into the water we were quickly catching small mackerel. Within the hour we were catching larger tuna; I was even able to catch a large stingray with the help of the highly skilled staff. You are truly able to get a hands-on experience with Crested Wave, "Genuine Fishing" is very much an accurate description for our trip. Better yet, we were even offered to take some of the tuna home (which was courteously cut up into steaks for us). Overall, I would highly recommend Crested Wave to anyone interested in fishing in Tenerife. We will be back!

Thank you very much for your review about our morning fishing trip. Yes the smaller tunas have been very frequent during our last trips, and even though they are not the biggest, they are still very tasty when prepared and eaten so fresh ! When we leave Los Cristianos Port we head in various directions, not always Puerto Colon, as we are fortunate to be situated right near the very bottom of the island near the lowest point, and have the choice of setting off in many different directions depending on where the fish are and the weather conditions, the last weeks they have been very close indeed. Glad you enjoyed the fishing with us and the fish on the plate. Hopefully see you another day. Regards Mick 'Crested Wave, Genuine Fishing Tenerife'

Absolutely loved our day out fishing we were party of 3adults and 2 teens and the staff were amazing, explained everything and helped us every step of the way. We first went bottom fishing and caught Ray's which we put back and some tuna. Then later went trawling which we didn't catch anything but still had an amazing time and spotted 2 dolphins. The owner and crew were really knowledgeable and helped our daughter of 12 reel in and even got my hubby to help her when it was a big one. Would definitely book again when we come back, it was one of the best days of our holiday.

Dear FamilyAshurst, Really pleased you and your family enjoyed the trip so much, and it's always great to hear we helped people have a memorable time. We always try our best to give as much help, if needed, and make everything very clear and easy to understand for all our clients, especially the novice anglers, but we do not interfere with experienced anglers, it's often a bit of a mixture. The dolphins and whales are an added bonus, and very often spot them when we are doing the trolling game fishing. So we will look forward to meeting you when you come back, and who knows, maybe even more fish !!! Kind Regards Mick 'CRESTED WAVE, GENUINE FISHING TENERIFE'

Mick and Jack took us out yesterday on a half day private charter, the whole family came even though the girls did not fish the crew could not do enough to get us on the fish, would recommend crested wave to anyone, having used other operators in Tenerife over the years the crested waves crews depth of knowledge and experience made it an unforgettable experience, we won’t be using anyone else in the future!
