Rock & Reel Land Based Fishing Adventures

If you’re up for some fishing off the coast of Portugal, Rock & Reel has got you covered! Guide Cristian Pérez will take you along the fisherman’s track of Costa Vicentine Natural Park, where you’ll enjoy fishing on foot with some incredible coastline views.

Getting to the fishing spots can take up to 20 minutes, and then the real adventure starts! Capt. Cristian was born into a fishermen family, and he’s spent his entire life on the water, so you can be sure of his ability to make your trip as fun and productive as possible.

You’ll use mostly Daiwa rods and reels. Your main target will be Sargo (White Seabream), but you’ll also come across Gilt-head and European Seabass as well. You’ll be sight fishing, and the crew will introduce you to the traditional fishing techniques used in the Algarve.

If you’re keen on tasting your catch, you can take it home with you. If you want to learn how to clean, process, and cook your fish, the crew will be happy to teach you and share their recipes with you. It is time to make yourself comfortable on the beach, take a little break, and share your amazing experience! The fishing license will be taken care of by the crew.

Kids older than 10 are welcome to come on this adventure if you’d like to make some amazing memories with them. They can enjoy some of the most beautiful natural views while learning how to fish in these pristine, rich waters.

The crew will provide coolers, and you’re welcome to bring your own food and drinks to stay energized. Make sure to wear rain gear and waterproof shoes in the fall and winter, and bring some sun protection in the warmer months, so that you can fully enjoy your trip.

Join Rock & Reel, get out of your comfort zone, and go on a new adventure in one of the last wild fishing paradises in Europe!

I was born in a rock fisherman family, where I learned about the sea and how to respect it. My grandpa taught me the old fishing tricks. My passion for anything happening in the seashore kept me searching and learning during the last 35 years. You can find me rock fishing, picking seafood, surfing, snorkeling, cooking my catch in front of the sea or even better sharing all of this with friends. My fishing partner got intensely into fishing all over Australia. From then on she never left a country behind on her travels without trying to catch a fish. We have been fishing on 5 continents but finally decided to stay in the Costa Vicentina Natural Park. It's one of the last wild fisheries in Europe, where you can enjoy a pristine fishing spot just by yourself.
