A wide variety of fish to be caught

We believe that we offer the best shark fishing trips on the Algarve. These are not tourist trips, but proper full days fishing, unlike most charter boats, where you only get in four hours fishing if you are lucky.

We fish for six hours and will stay out longer if we are catching. Best trips have seen up to 19 sharks landed. With an incredible trip  where nine Mako sharks were landed.

We only take six fishing on the boat, unlike some charter boats which take up to 20.

This a fully escorted trip fishing with John Bate, we use 3 different boats, depending on the numbers of anglers and type of fishing you require. The Portuguese rules regarding the use of boats at sea a very strict and rigidly enforced by the police who often board boats at sea to ensure that these rules are being adhered to with regard to safety equipment and that the skipper has a licence and his boat has been subject to its annual safety condition inspections and that he has valid insurance cover. This ensures your safety when boat fishing here in the Algarve!

3 Day Short Break - Sea Fishing

These prices are based on two sharing a double room, single room supplements start at an additional £50.00 rising to £120.00 per week in High Season. Additionally prices reflect the time of year, number of anglers fishing and whether the fishing is sea or fresh water fishing. Please note that boat fishing is on a ‘weather permitting’ basis but we can fish 19 days in 20 and have some excellent shore fishing available should the weather be too rough for taking you out in one of our charter boats.
