Go Fishing Portugal

This beautiful seaside town offers spectacular views from the water and is located just 30 minutes from Lisbon. You’ll head out with Captain Victor Ganchinho who loves teaching his guests to fish more than catching fish himself!

The beautiful vessel can accommodate up to 8 anglers and features all the comforts of home including a toilet, microwave, freezer, and two beds. There’s also a Garmin GPS and Fishfinder on board to help locate the most productive spots.

The fishing in Sesimbra is spectacular. You’ll head into the open waters of the Atlantic, where a wide variety of inshore and offshore species reside. Hook into Dentex, Seabream, European Seabass, Blue and Mako Shark, Tuna, and more. Trolling jigging, spinning, and drift fishing are just some of the techniques you’ll try!

Go Fishing Portugal provides only the best fishing gear including Daiwa, Penn, Shimano, Smith, Xesta, and Rapala. The crew practices catch and release fishing. If you want to keep some a few fish for dinner, that’s up to you. Unwanted fish are donated to a local children’s charity.

Basic catering with sandwiches and water, beer, and wine, is also included in the price. Take your Portuguese vacation to the next level with a dedicated crew aboard Go Fishing Portugal!

I am 54 years old and I started fishing when I was 6 years old. I do around 120 days in the ocean every year. For me, it's very important to teach my guests everything I've learned over the years. That's why I do love to take beginners out on the water. It´s a different world and I really appreciate being able to show it to you for the first time. Customers enjoy a lot of the places we visit and find it easy to catch a nice fish. All the equipment we have is top quality, Daiwa, Penn, Rapala. At the end of the day, we offer some of the fish caught to an institution that cares about children. It´s also possible to prepare lunch with the fish that we catch.
