Bolhas Tours

Avenida Dos Náufragos
Sesimbra SE, Portugal

Bolhas Tours are based out of the Sesimbra Marina, just 50 minutes drive south of Lisbon in what is known as one of the best beach towns in Portugal. They operate all year round and offer deep sea fishing and snorkeling tours in beautiful surroundings on the Atlantic Ocean.

Their 27 ft Silcar 820 walkaround boat was made locally in Portugal specifically to tackle the area’s waters. It is powered by a 270 HP Cummins 4.6 Diesel engine and is fitted with top of the range electronics by Simrad, including a GPS, fishfinder, radar, and sonar, as well as a Navicom DSC VHF radio. The boat has a covered area to protect you from the elements and it is fitted with an enclosed bathroom. There is a live bait tank on board, and downriggers are included for the best fishing experience.

Bolhas Tours use a variety of techniques on their fishing trips, including trolling, bottom fishing, jigging and using handlines. They target a variety of species, including Red Sea Bream, Guilt Head Bream, Sea Bream, Red Snapper, Croaker, Courbine (Meagre), and Swordfish.

Their all-inclusive trips don’t only include the use of all the tackle and bait you’ll need to target this diverse fishery, but also give you the chance sample local cheese, wine, and other snacks. Please note there is a limit to the number of fish the clients can take home at the end of the day.

Whether you are a novice angler who wants a fun day out catching small fish with your family and friends or are a pro who is looking for a trophy fish, Bolhas Tours will make sure your trip is one to remember!
