Xiphias Big Game Fishing is a fishing charter based in Olhão, Portugal that is run and operated by Captain David Modri. This charter is all about catching the big fish, and David has the skill and expertise to give you the best odds to do so. While still relatively unknown, the local Blue Marlin fishery is one of the best in the world. If you’re looking for the experience of a lifetime, you are sure to find one here.
You will be fishing aboard a 36’ Trojan offshore sport fishing boat that is powered by two 300HP IVECO engines. Apart from all the necessary safety and navigation gear, the boat has a toilet, two beds, and a kitchen so you can have a comfortable time during longer trips. It also has a livewell for bait and an icebox to keep any drinks you might decide to bring along.
Captain David’s business is all about big game fishing, and there’s plenty of big game in these waters. Depending on what you want to do, you can fish for White and Blue Marlin, Bluefin and Bigeye Tuna, Swordfish, Sharks, and more besides. Whether you’re looking to hook a 1000-pound Marlin or chum for Tuna, Captain David will make sure to point you in the right direction.
The price of the trip includes rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as all the required fishing licenses. Children over the age of ten are welcome aboard, and an appropriate lifejacket will be provided.
