Ratinho Sportfishing

Ratinho Sports fishing invites you on a fishing trip around the iconic waters of the Azores, Portugal. Experience the Atlantic and its fishing hot spots around the coast of São Miguel Island in a different way! You’ll be fishing with a sea-loving crew on board a top-notch sportfishing vessel, built to ensure a pleasant and smooth ride.

Trips aboard Ratinho Sports fishing run year-round, but the weather dictates the best time for fishing. The crew will take you where the fish are, around the coastline or further out for the chance to hook big game fish, usually about 10 to 15 miles from the coast.

There are many species on offer, such as Bonito, a variety of Tuna, blue and white Marlin, Mahi Mahi and a lot of smaller, edible fish. Just let your captain know what you’d like to hook and one way or other you will be reeling ‘em in!

Skipper Adriano Medeiros describes the sea as the love of his life and welcomes you on board his 28’ Starfisher to explore it with him. This vessel is fully loaded with equipment for your safety and comfort, as well as all the fishing gear you’ll need, and snorkeling gear. Lunch, snacks, water, soft drinks, and beer are on board, too. The cabin area has WiFI and it’s equipped with a table where you can relax with your family, as well as a full toilet and shower.

In the words of the crew themselves, “Our goal is for you to enjoy your trip with us, using our long-time experience in big game fishing, coast fishing, or just a run for fun!” you’ll be joined by an English-speaking, easy-going, fun crew who will do everything to provide you with an unforgettable adventure.

The crew is flexible and can cater to your needs, customizing the trips to suit your wishes and schedule. Bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera. Then grab your friends and come experience the striking beauty of Azores and its fisheries!
