Fishing Experience from Split, Croatia

Free cancellation
Join Sparus Boats and get ready to explore the stunning Dalmatian coast with Captain Dario! Your guide for the day is an expert in a number of techniques, including spearfishing, trolling, bottom fishing, and more. You’ll be able to island-hop and visit some of the hottest fishing grounds that the Adriatic has to offer! You’ll be fishing from a 25’ Marlin center console, equipped with the latest Humminbird electronics, safety gear, and fishing tackle. On board, you’ll also find a shower, fridge, and a cooler. The boat even comes with WiFi, a go-pro, and drone so you can capture each special moment while you fish. The boat accommodates up to 6 guests, and children ages 6 and older are welcome aboard. Capt. Dario will take you to various fishing locations along Split’s coast to target a wide range of species. You’ll be able to troll for pelagics or bottom-fish for John Dory, Seabass, and Common Pandora. Other target species include Amberjack, Bonito, Tuna, Dentex, Seabream, and the list keeps on impressing! The captain also has snorkeling and spearfishing equipment available if you’d like to take a dip and take a closer look beneath the surface. For spearfishing, he recommends ages 18 and older and that you have previous experience. Spears are included but if you prefer spearfishing with a wetsuit, be sure to rent one or bring your own. You’ll be provided top-quality Okuma and Shimano rods and reels as well. Your fishing license is included in the price and the captain will gladly clean and fillet your catch after the trip. There’s also a hook-n-cook restaurant nearby where you can have your fish grilled the local way! Snacks, soda, and beer are included as well so that you stay fully energized during the ride. Capt. Dario will make sure you’re entertained and comfortable, just be sure to bring some sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses and the rest will be taken care of.

Dario Vrdoljak

Operator since 2017
It’s hard for a foreigner to understand the bond the Croats have with the sea. My love for the sea, especially fishing, existed ever since I was a little kid. As I grew up, it made me explore further and I got to find many secret places, caves and pristine beaches. After my studies at Marine Fisheries, I got a job at Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries here in Split and that’s when my dreams come true. The next big step was, of course, combining my experience and expertise to create a company for custom made tours and excursions. My goal is the individual approach and a tour with enchanted exclusivity for my guests of any taste and preference. An introduction to the marine environment and the various fish fauna while enjoying a scenic cruise to the beautiful Dalmatian islands would then sound like a perfect summer escape.
