Red Hunter Fishing Charters

Red Hunter Fishing Charters runs private fishing trips off the beautiful Algarve coast. Based in Olhão, Skipper Claudio Condinho will do all in his power so you have a productive trip full of fun in the rich waters of the Atlantic Ocean!

The captain fishes from a 35’ Henriques Maine Coaster named the Red Tide that can take up to 6 guests. The boat was fully restored in 2020 and it runs on twin 240 HP Cummins engines. It features Raymarine and Lowrance navigation technology and safety gear (including adult and kid-size life jackets). The boat also comes with a toilet for your comfort and all the equipment that helps Skipper Claudio make your fishing experience the best possible – including a fighting chair, outriggers, a live bait tank, and an ice-box.

You’ll be exploring the best inshore and offshore spots in search of the area’s best species. Depending on the conditions, you could be reeling in the likes of Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and others! The techniques you can use include bottom fishing, jigging on light and heavy tackle, along with fly fishing, and more.

The crew provides top-quality Shimano and Penn gear and various lures and bait. The trip price also includes snacks, drinks, and fishing licenses. Keep in mind that fly fishing gear is not provided and that you’ll need to bring your own if you’d like to fly fish.

Kids of the age of 8 and older are also welcome to join aboard, just make sure they are accompanied by an adult. All that’s left to do is book your next trip with Red Hunter Fishing Charters and make memories to last a lifetime!
