Alvor Boat Trips is currently unable to accept reservations on FishingBooker. But don't worry we've found some great alternatives for you nearby.

Discover the pristine waters of southern Portugal with Alvor Boat Trip. Let Captain Luis Lourenço take you to some of the most productive fishing grounds on the eastern Atlantic! As the owner of the first official charter service in Alvor, Capt. Luis has seen it and caught it all. From monster pelagics to delicious bottom-feeders, he’s become known as the “fish whisperer,” always knowing where to be at the right time.

Your boat for the day is a 28’ Starfisher. She’s an offshore sport fishing vessel designed for deep sea expeditions, accommodating up to 10 guests per trip. She is fully outfitted with top-of-the-line equipment and safety gear. She’s decked out with a private toilet and a bed, making her perfect for long offshore trips. The boat is also wheelchair accessible with a ramp, child-friendly, and spacious with ample seating. Sit back and enjoy the view!

You won’t have to travel too far to reach some of the diverse fisheries off the coast of Alvor. It’ll take you 45 minutes until you can start hooking offshore pelagics such as Mahi Mahi and Tuna. In just 20 minutes, you’ll be bottom fishing over reefs to target Conger Eel, Triggerfish, Dentex, Common Pandora, and John Dory.

On longer trips, you’ll be able to battle against apex predators, such as Mako and Blue Shark, while shorter trips will see you targeting local favorites such as Gilt-head and European Seabass. No matter which trip you choose, Capt. Luis will provide top-notch tackle, made by Penn, Daiwa, and Tica, so you can fish like a pro.

Your fishing license is also covered, so just be sure to bring a valid photo ID, and you’re all set. Capt. Luis also keeps water, juice, and beer on board, but feel free to bring snacks and store them in his cooler.

Arrive at Alvor Harbor 15 minutes prior to departure and get ready to create lasting memories. Alvor Boat Trips will put you on incredible fish and show you a great time. Book your trip today and experience southern Portugal like a true local!
