Azores Fishing and Adventures

Azores Fishing and Adventures offers you the chance to explore the incredible waters around Sao Miguel, targeting the pelagic monsters and inshore gamefish which grow to such incredible sizes here. Choose between half and full-day charters chasing anything from Bluefish to Blue Marlin and get ready for a fishing trip you will never forget.

The Azores are famous for their instant drop-off and huge numbers of big game pelagics. This is one of the best places on the planet to try for a grander Blue Marlin, and White Marlin also reach monster sizes. The Tuna bite is just as good, with Bluefin, Yellowfin, Bigeye, and Albacore Tunas arriving up in force every summer.

Sao Miguel is also home to a range of inshore gamefish. Bluefish and Barracuda hunt along the rocky shoreline while Amberjack, Triggerfish, and Grouper patrol deep reefs just a cast or two from land. Throw in Bonito and Little Tunny, and you have endless light tackle action.

It takes an adaptable boat to make the most of these waters. Luckily, Capt. Pedro’s 23’ Tecninautica walkaround is just that. The vessel boasts a range of electronics to get you locked on your chosen species and outriggers to troll multiple lines at once, doubling your chance of hooking a winner.

Once you do find fish, the boat’s Shimano rods and reels will let you fish with confidence, while her quality lures make sure no fish can resist your hooks. Azores Fishing and Adventures are strong believers in sustainable angling. All Billfish are released and you can also release Tuna if you choose to.

Everything you need for the fishing itself is ready and waiting onboard. You will be given snacks and drinks to keep you going, and fishing licenses are included for everyone onboard. Just bring your camera, sunscreen, and comfortable clothing, and jump aboard - the fish won’t wait forever!
