Tightlines – Olhão

Tightlines Portugal specializes in big game fishing off the coast of the beautiful town of Olhão. Your skipper for the day, Captain Martin, is a knowledgable and passionate angler with decades of experience fishing the Algarve region of Portugal. If you’re looking for an adrenaline-pumping, deep sea expedition, you’ve come to the right place.

Your boat for the day is a 23’ Key Largo center console, equipped with top-notch equipment, electronics, and safety gear. She comes with outriggers, a live bait tank, and a multimedia system for ultimate enjoyment while you fish. The boat accommodates up to 3 guests and children above the ages of 6 are welcome aboard.

You’ll zoom off from the coast of Olhão in search of incredible game species, such as Dentex, Mahi Mahi, Blue and White Marlin, and Bluefin Tuna. You’ll have your choice of techniques to choose from, including trolling, bottom fishing, drifting, and deep sea fishing. Your captain will provide you with as much assistance as you need but he’s also more than happy to give you space if you’d like a more hands-off approach.

The crew will provide you with an assortment of top-quality brands of rods and reels so you don’t have to lug your own equipment around. Your fishing license, as well as catch cleaning and filleting services, are also included in the price. All you have to bring is sun protection, as well as your own snacks and drinks, and you’re all set.

Tightlines Portugal is ready to show you the time of your life. Join Capt. Martin on an unforgettable adventure and get ready to create lasting memories off the coast of Portugal!
