Blue Captures Fishing Charters

Blue Captures Fishing Charters offers the best sportfishing action in Olhão, Portugal. From Tavira to Sesimbra – the crew knows where to take you to make you feel the adrenaline rush of fighting some big fish. The captain and the team are winners of many tournaments of the Portuguese Big Game circuit.

Enjoy your trip aboard a 28’ Henriques Yachts offshore sportfishing boat, which comes powered by a 375 HP Cummins engine and has a maximum cruising speed of 23 knots. Originally built in 1997, the vessel was restored in 2017 and is fully rigged with top-notch navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a fishfinder, a VHF radio, and a radar.

Inside, there is a toilet, a shower, a kitchen with a refrigerator, a bed, a multimedia system, and a TV for you to relax in between the bites. The boat is equipped with an anchoring system, an ice-box, a fighting chair for those anglers who are up for a challenge, and a live bait tank. With outriggers, downriggers, and centerriggers fitted on board, the boat is perfect for fishing in comfort. Up to 4 guests are welcome aboard.

The crew has tailored a great variety of packages to suit any angler’s needs. From April to October, they offer 4-hour trips for kids and families. From May to July, you can go jigging on the south or west coast. Big game fishing trips are available for those anglers who want to experience the best angling the offshore waters have to offer. Night trips for Swordfish are perfect for the most passionate fishermen.

If you want, you will be able to keep the catch, except for Tuna, injured Marlin, and Billfish. A trip with the crew comes inclusive with all gear and tackle, as well as Mullet and Mackerel live bait, lures, and the licenses for you and your party. You will be offered drinks and snacks, and the crew will clean your catch.

So what are you waiting for? Book a trip with Blue Captures Fishing Charters and get ready for your Portuguese fishing adventure!
