Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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.

Had a great time fishing for a week with the crew of crested wave.every day is different new sights and experiences. Always a chance of the fish of a lifetime.
Good way to top up your tan without sitting by a pool.

Having previously been out with these guys on several occasions before we knew what to expect and didn't hesitate to book with them again this year.
Mick, Jack, and the rest of the crew really will do all they can to ensure you have an enjoyable trip and hopefully catch some great fish !
We weren't able to book on a full day trip this time due to our other commitments but Mick happily offered us a deal on two back-to-back half day trips, and even threw a bit of lunch in in-between (cold drinks are included throughout the trips already), can't ask for better hospitality than that !
The two trips proved to be great fun with my brother catching more in the morning and me more in the afternoon (though not enough for the 'win' !).
Pete looked after us very well in the afternoon and Gabbi is an excellent and very attentive deck hand, but a special thanks must go to Jack. My brother has moderate learning difficulties and he was delighted that Jack firstly took a moment to acknowledge that he recognised us from previous trips, and then went on to provide great assistance directly to Sean when he hooked into a ray.
All in all, I couldn't recommend them highly enough - great guys, great tackle & boat, and great hospitality !
See you again next time guys..

After a disappointing rip off trip we had booked on the Sofia, these guys are professionals and really genuine nice guys. Everyone person caught fish. Unlike the Sofia these guys on the crested wave use real good bait and chum buckets instead of "frozen chicken" really enjoyed our day. One of our guys dropped 20 euros in the water when bringing up a fish and the skipper jumped in and got for him. Cheers guys will be booking with you again next time I visit tenerife.

I am an experienced fisherman and have also been big game fishing before; but not in Tenerife. I went with my son (13) so he could experienced being on a boat, find sea legs and just experience this adventure, 4 hour trip. Booking was easy just call via Facebook and Mick will sort it all out.(English speaking and run company) Got a taxi to the Port Los Christians and the boat is easy found.There were about 10 on board but the boat is big enough to handle it, mixed. abilities. Jack (who's Mick's son) and the crew attended to the rods and baits, providing cold drinks and beer for the brave. I found them all very helpful and friendly. Beautiful scenery with turtles and dolphins spotted in the calmer waters. It's been a bad year for onshore big game fishing but there is always a chance.The crew worked hard in spotting when trolling with 2 hits on skipjack tuna shoals. It was great fun watching the different reactions of the anglers in the frenzy that followed. The water did get a bit choppy at times which tested some but was fun as we skirted those crested waves.
After a few hours we anchored up in calmer waters and went bottom fishing. Nice touch was the sun umbrella's and of course another beer, was hot and sunny! Well chilled then another flurry of activity, 4 stingrays in a row which bent the rods and tested a few fella's onboard, one of these stingrays was a beast., All were released. Overall, my son had a great adventure and is now looking to do it again. I would recommend for beginners, families and those wishing to try it out. For me I just love fishing and there is always, always the chance of the big one! (English speaking and run company)
