Aquasares Offshore Fishing Charters

Aquasares Offshore Fishing Charters has exceptional access to some of Europe’s best big game sportfishing grounds. With incredible Blue Marlin fishing and a rich network of artificial reefs, this diverse fishery will delight serious sports fishermen and young families alike. Captain Bruno Sares will make sure you have the time of your life.

You will be fishing aboard a 26’ Starfisher offshore sportfishing boat. It has recently been restored to make it the ideal choice for fishing charters. The boat can cruise at around 26 knots, giving you access to areas that less powerful vessels can’t reach on a day trip.

It has the full complement of safety equipment and features a range of marine electronics to get you where the fish are. It is also fully rigged for sportfishing, with outriggers, downriggers, and a center rigger all on board. For additional comfort, there’s also a toilet and shower.

Capt. Bruno runs a variety of trips to suit every taste. You can catch the fish of a lifetime, hooking a big Blue Marlin, or you could have the time of your life fishing with light tackle for the energetic White Marlin. If you want to see the smile on your kids’ faces, then you can take your whole family reef fishing, an activity that will delight anglers from 8 to 80.

Whether you want to fish with light or heavy tackle, use a fighting chair or stand harness, troll, bait and switch, or fly fish, the crew will cater to your needs and put you on the fish. They are the Portuguese National Champions of 2016, winning in The Tavira Offshore Classic 2016 and Vilamoura Big Game Tournaments!

Join Aquasares Offshore Fishing Charters and explore these prolific waters. Everything you need to fish is provided – all you need to bring is your good mood!

Hi mates... I'm Capt Bruno Sares, start fishing for big pelagic fish in 2006 after catching my first Blue Marlin. Since then i'm passing along the joy of the finest experience you can get fishing, either catching +900lbs Blue Marlins, or the mighty Bluefin Tuna, or the fun fishing for the allusive White Marlin, catching double digits some days. Come fish with us, you will have the experience of a life time... The Aquasares Fishing Charters team will do their best to make sure you have a memorable day on the water.
