Xacara - Brasilia Fishing Charters

Horta Marina
Horta AC, Portugal

In Horta Azores, land of the granders, you ll’ have the chance of fishing with Captain Olaf Grimkowski and his crew.

Native from Germany with an enormous. experience in Azores, Ghana,Canaries, Ascension, Cape Verde and Croatia. The renamed banks of Horta are the best place to do world records or to catch a more then 1000lbs blue marlin.

Xacara is a Hatteras 36 with twin Cummins 6BTA 350 with twin disc. Fishing tackles are first class . Xacara, Captain Olaf and mate Marty Bates are the best to do WR in light tackle.

Excellent fishing areas can be within 15 minutes of leaving the harbour as the waters surrounding the Islands drop off rapidly to depths in excess of 1,000 m.
The most productive fishing areas whilst fishing from Horta are the Condor Bank, The Azores Bank and the North Coast of Faial. The run out to the banks may take between 1 to 1.5 hours.
In not having found any advantage in getting out for the early bite, we usually leave the marina at 9:30 am and return by 6:30 pm. All food and drinks are provided on board.
