This combo hunting/fishing / touring adventure is a great way to see all the different features the beautiful island of Mallorca has to offer! You’ll first start off hunting a Balearean Boc while driving and hiking through the island’s mountains, then head offshore in a cabin cruiser fishing boat to the land of giant tuna. After you’ve had your fill of hunting and fishing, you’ll take the last day to relax with a tour of some of the island’s most historic and beautiful places. The entire time, you’ll be staying in a high-end 4-star hotel nestled up in the mountains, complete with great food and incredible wines! This schedule is flexible and can change. For instance, if there is bad weather or rough seas on one of the fishing days, it will be postponed to the next day, or if you end up shooting your Balearean Boc on the first hunting day, you can either add a touring day for $650 all-inclusive or another fishing day for $1,990.
The fishing boat accepts up to three anglers. The package price decreases as more clients come along. If bringing two hunters, the package is $7,970 each and for three hunters it is $7,307 each.
About the Balearean Boc:
The only huntable species on the island, the Balearean Boc was introduced to the island over two millennia ago by the ancient Phoenicians who hoped to use it as a self-sustaining food source. Also known as the Mallorcan Wild Goat, the island of Mallorca is the only place in the world where the Balearean Boc lives and can be hunted. The males of this species are a bit larger than females and weigh between 100 and 130 pounds. They also have lightly spiraling horns that point backward. Their coats are unique and have a black stripe running from their upper back down through their shoulder blades. This is a striking contrast to their reddish-brown coats. and have horns that point backward and go into a gentle spiral. The animals are also naturally skittish and will flee at any perceived danger. Due to the terrain, the goat lives in, they have adapted to be very apt climbers and will often flee uphills and up cliffsides to escape a threatening situation. Because of this timid behavior, this animal has quickly become a prized trophy for hunters across the globe who are skilled enough to take one of these home with them.
You can expect your trophy Balearean Boc to be a representative size at this price point. For a bronze medal goat scoring between 50’’ to 54’’ 6/8 it is $900 additional. If you choose, you can upgrade to a silver medal that will score (54’’ 7/8 to 61’’ ⅜ for $2,200 additional. Gold medals are also available, and they will score from 61’’ 4/8 for $3,400 additional.
Balearean Boc Hunting Area and Terrain:
This outfitter hunts Balearean Boc over a large area that consists of rolling hills, rocky cliffs, pine forests, and mountains across the island. You can expect some tree and brush cover over most of the area. The concession also runs alongside the Mediterranean Sea, so expect incredible views while hiking and traversing the area. The outfitter recommends you to in good physical condition for this hunt, as it takes place in the mountains and over some rocky terrain. However, it is possible for hunters in any physical condition to be accommodated as long as they have solid shooting skills and are confident in their accuracy.
Balearean Boc Hunting Season:
Hunting Balearean Boc on the island of Mallorca is possible year-round, though the best time is in the spring season between April and May, and the second best is between September and October. Summertime is often the busiest time, the island is packed with tourists, and temperatures rise to around 100 degrees. At this time, the Balearean Boc are hunted in the woods and not on the mountainsides.
A Typical Day Hunting Balearean Boc:
On the first couple days of your trip, you’ll start by hunting Balearean Boc. The typical day hunting Balearean Boc varies depending on the weather and other external factors, but it is standard to have an early morning with a light breakfast. You and your guide will talk about the plan for the day and what the best hunting strategy will be. Then you’ll head out to the hunting area at dawn, just as the sun is rising. You’ll begin your hunt by searching for your Balearean Boc both by hiking on foot and driving the roads with a vehicle. Using binoculars, you and your guide will be able to identify a perfect shooter.
Once agreeing that this Boc is a shooter, you and your guide will begin the stalk! This usually entails some hiking to get closer and to the right position. With a well-planned and quiet stalk, you should be able to get a close shot within 100-300 yards on average. The closer the better, as sometimes the mountain winds can easily throw your bullet off course and cause a bad hit or a miss. Once you get within a shooting distance you’re comfortable in, line up your sights and take your shot!
Offshore Giant Tuna Fishing:
For the third and fourth days of your trip, you’ll be taken out on a chartered fishing boat to go deep-sea fishing for giant tuna. The boat will have a cabin for a bit of shelter from the sun and a large aft deck perfect for reeling up your giant catch! It is conducted on a catch, tag, and release system. The fishing guide will be fluent in English. Your fishing focus will be geared toward bluefin tuna, though in July and August it is also possible to fish for other species such as swordfish or spearfish with a high success rate.
If you are trying to fish for giant bluefin tuna (200-400 lbs), the best time to come is between the months of January to May. For regular-size bluefin tuna (30-150 lbs), the best time is between May and September.
In the unlikely case that it is not possible to go out fishing, $3,980 will be refunded.
Your final day on the island (or days, depending on how quick your hunt goes) will consist of touring some of Mallorca’s most famous tourist destinations. You can choose how you’d like to customize these tour days, and your guide will be able to assist in helping you make the best choice that fits you. The different options you can choose for your tour day are as follows:
- You can visit Palma, the capital of the island. It is known for its historic Catherdral and Muslim Palace which are nestled in its Old Town District. This district is one of the oldest in Europe and holds a tremendous amount of history in its streets and alleys. A small and cozy town on the Mediterranean, it is a picturesque place to sightsee!
- Soller is an isolated town on the North coast and another popular tourist destination. The city is known for retaining its classic Mallorcan lifestyle with minimal outside influences. The town’s traditional dishes of locally caught fresh fish and prawns are one of its biggest draws to outsiders!
- Visiting Valldemossa is another great option. Valldemossa is a town nestled up in the mountains and is known for being built entirely out of stone. It is famous for being the town where Frederic Chopin lived, and today is now the home of dozens of modern celebrities. It is located in the Tramuntana Mountain range and is a beautiful, quaint little town.
- Your guide can take you on a tour along the Mediterranian coastlines, where sandy beaches and secret sea caves await. These secluded little coves are great for enjoying a relaxing bath in the sea. The busy season in Mallorca is during the summertime, so the dates of this trip should be perfect to ensure the island is not overcrowded.
