We are delighted to be one of only 22 skippers in Ireland selected and trained to partake in the Bluefin Tuna Chart programme since it’s inception in 2019, which means we are one of only 22 skippers nationally who can legally target bluefin tuna on a catch and release basis! We are consistently in the top skippers in Ireland for catching them during the CHART programme and are licensed by Inland Fisheries Ireland/The Marine Institute/Sea Fisheries Protection Authority as an approved skipper. We have all the big game gear on board and have caught these to over 800 lbs in the past. Come experience the world class tuna fishery we have in Sligo and Donegal Bay, which is currently rated as one of the best, if not the best, in the world. Forget wicked tuna!

It is very important when fishing these species you choose a skipper with a proven track record and experience. Daryl brings knowledge from large pelagic angling experience from all over the world to the bluefin tuna table, and has an exemplary record, just check out some of our pictures! Prime season for these goliaths in Sligo/Donegal Bay is from mid August until the end of October.
