Cape Verde, a cluster of volcanic islands arranged in a semicircle in the Atlantic Ocean off the westernmost point of the African continent, 400 miles off the coast of Senegal. This natural treasure of undoubtable beauty with its white beaches, lunar landscapes and spectacular crystal blue water, was only recently discovered by international operators who have opened the doors of Cape Verde to a new kind of tourism, luckily, still not for the masses.
The ten islands are perpetually battered by the trade winds that constantly blow from the north-east dividing the archipelago into two main groups: the Windward Islands in the north and the Leeward Islands in the south.
Amidst the senery of these wild and unspoiled islands lays one of the most important spearfishing spots of the entire planet, a top destination for blue water hunting lovers, where large pelagics abound.
An extraordinary number of Wahoo are present all year round together with Marlin and Sailfish which make their appearance from April to November. Yellowfin Tuna, Dorados, Almaco Jacks, African Pompano and big Cubera Snappers are the the icing on the cake in this magnificent setting.
But it is the high concentration of Wahoo, one of the fastest predators in the ocean, capable of reaching speeds of 60mph, that drives us to dive the turbulent waters of Cape Verde every year, from the best known Windward islands to the remotest corners of the Leeward Islands, where the encounter with the fish of a lifetime is always possible.
This adventure consists in 5 days of diving, aimed at landing large pelagic fish in the open water, such as Wahoo, Amberjack, Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish and Marlin. But for the lovers of the rocky bottom there is a pleasant surprise... massive Cubera Snapper await in our secret spot!
Each diving day has a duration of approximately 7 hours.
Air temp: 25 ° C - 30 ° C | Water temp: 23 ° C - 27 ° C
