Azores Fishing

Rua Engº Manuel António Mart…
Vila Franca Do Campo AC, Portugal

Experience fishing in the Azores with Azores Fishing, a company that provides great experiences on the water in a fun and safe environment. Join the experienced team and explore the best fishing grounds near São Miguel, also known as the “Green Island” of the Azores.

You will be fishing aboard the ‘Frontino’, a 25 ft Rodman sportfishing boat that is powered by twin 125 HP Yanmar motors. Restored in 2016, the boat is equipped with up to date, top quality fishing equipment and electronics, including a VHF, fishfinder, GPS, and radar. The large deck has ample space for everyone to fish, and inside the boat there is a WC, kitchen, bedroom, and a stereo to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable fishing trip from start to finish.

The Azores is famous worldwide for its fishing, and with good reason. Most of the world’s big game fish call these waters home at some point in the year, with species such as Blue and White Marlin, Bluefin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Mako Sharks, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo all possible target species. If you want to fish with live bait for giant Bluefin Tuna Azores Fishing has the package for you, and they also have all the equipment you would need for a productive Bass fishing trip, using electric reels to give you access to these delicious deep sea fish.

Not only is the fishing in Azores hard to beat, the coastal scenery is also spectacular: if you want a break from fishing, the secluded beaches and coves are waiting for you to stop and take a swim in privacy.

All the top quality fishing gear you will need is supplied by Azores Fishing, which will also provide snacks, drinks, and even lunch on longer trips.
