About the Captain

Erling Klemens
Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal
Member since May 2016
The proximity with the sea and the interests in Marine life made me to search for a skipper certification 9 years ago. Once I had the Local Skipper certification, I started working in a Whale and Dolphin watching skipping a 30" glass bottom boat. Two years later I had the opportunity to join the fisherman community becoming First deck mate in a local sport fishing company. After 2 months I was the Captain of a fishing vessel (Pacemaker 31") and I was in charge of all the fishing activity. In 2012 I bought my first fishing boat to start my sport fishing company that continued developing the main activity until today.

We really lucked out with the weather. We caught well over 40-50 fish between the two of us. With about 6 different Species. Great day with a great couple guys on the boat

Captain Erling Klemens did a great job putting us on fish for the day. Just boating around the coast and seeing the cliffs was worth the charter on it’s own. First mate was extremely helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed all the shared humor! We had a blast!

For our first fishing experience in salt water it was really great! We did coastal fishing and caught 4 different species: tiger fish, White Sea bream, trigger fish and king fish. The crew made us feel very welcomed. They were very helpful. The captain gave interesting information and the deck mate prepared our fish that we directly ate at the marina for 10€ per person with potatoes and vegetables. They also provided fresh snacks and drinks during the trip. I would definitely recommend Azores fishing Center-Sport fishing for an unforgettable fishing experience in Sao Miguel.
