Coastal Fishing in Sao Miguel

If you would like to go coastal fishing in Sao Miguel you can charter our 22ft (6.7m) boat with yamaha outboard motor. It is fully equipped for various types of sea fishing and the charter can be tailored to your needs. On a day’s fishing in Sao Miguel you’ll spend approximately four hours out at sea. Common species you may catch are barracuda, scabbard fish, black groupers, amberjack, blue fish mackerel, anchovies, bonito and saw fish. If you’re fishing on the sea bottom you’re most likely to catch groupers, sea bream and other similar sized fish. Coastal fishing charters start at €295 or individual places at €105 (subject to availability)

Big game fishing in Sao Miguel

The Azores are widely recognised as one of the world’s best destinations for big game fishing particularly for Marlin. So if you’re up for a challenge we offer specialist big game fishing for tuna, dorado, marlin and more. For big game fishing we have two boat options: a 10 meter boat with flybridge, 220HP diesel engines, kitchen, bathroom, cabins, a living room etc so you’ll be comfortable on a long day’s fishing or a simpler 7 meter boat. Both boats have all new, specialist equipment.

Before you set off on one of our fishing trips you’ll be briefed about the types of fishing you’ll do, how to use all the equipment, the fish you may catch and safety precautions. Charter rates start from €450.

Don’t forget your camera because as well as recording your catches against the spectacular backdrop of the islands you may well spot the turtles, dolphins, whales and interesting other marine life. Beginners and more experienced fishermen/women are welcome as are non-fishing friends or family members.
