According to customer reviews, Katjoa Extreme Fishing, Aquasares Offshore Fishing Charters, and Ocean Fun & Fishing - Big Game are some of the most popular fishing charters in Algarve. Full list of top fishing charters in Algarve.

Katjoa Extreme Fishing, Aquasares Offshore Fishing Charters, and Ocean Fun & Fishing - Big Game all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Algarve.

The most popular fish species you can target are Bluefin Tuna, Blue Marlin, and White Marlin. Top fishing techniques include deep sea fishing, light tackle, and jigging. Offshore fishing, reef fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Europe’s south-western tip is home to some of the best angling out there. Hit the Atlantic Ocean’s rich waters, and get your fish on in style aboard an Algarve fishing charter. With boiling summers and mild weather even in winter, there’s never a bad time to come and discover some of the continent’s best fishing. 
 
If you’re looking for a big game fishing adventure, then the Algarve is one of the best spots on mainland Europe. Just a few miles out from shore, you can come into contact with beauties such as White Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, and Mahi Mahi. Head up to 40 miles out, and you’ll come into contact with Blue Marlin, Bigeye Tuna, and Bluefin Tuna, along with Swordfish. It’ll leave you lost for words.
 
There’s plenty on offer for beginners, too, with the nearshore reefs offering up plenty in the way of light tackle fishing. Hop aboard a shorter trip and try to fill the boat with Seabass, Dentex, Groupers, Mackerel, and Seabream, before heading back to shore for a delicious dinner. 
 
No matter where you are on the Algarve, you’re not far from the productive fishing grounds. From Tavira to Albufeira, and all the way round to Aljezar on the west coast, you’ll have the chance to go offshore. Spend anywhere from 4–12  hours aboard, and get your fish on like never before!

Rules & Regulations

Another piece of good news is that, as per Algarve fishing regulations, you won’t need to buy your own fishing license. Every charter operator will cover your license, too. Your professional guide will also keep you on top of bag limits, and let you know if any fish, such as Billfish for example, are catch and release only.

January
What better way to forget about the winter blues than with a holiday? Come to the Algarve where the weather is ideal for exploring, as you get your fish on and work up a sweat to land a warming meal.
February
The big game creatures may not be biting just yet but there’s plenty of action nearshore. Go after delicious Seabass, Seabream, Groupers, Dentex, and many other reef-dwelling beauties to fill the boat.
March
You may be tempted offshore by the rumors of the arrival of Blue Sharks and Swordfish, but your best bet of landing that dream fish is with a nearshore trip to the reefs for the usual suspects.
April
There’s not long to go until the peak fishing season kicks off, so you just about have enough time to practice your skills before the serious fishing starts. Hit the reefs to bottom fish and flex your muscles.
May
Bluefin and Bigeye Tuna start making their way past the Algarve coastline in May, giving you a sign of what’s to come during summer. Head out on a big game adventure and put your strength to the test.
June
While you may feel the heat of the sun blasting down on the Algarve, there’s nothing quite as hot as the fishing. Sharks and Swordfish rub shoulders with the Tuna to keep you on your feet all day long. 
July
Tourists from all over Europe flock to the hillsides and beaches of the Algarve, and for good reason too. Take advantage of the weather and head to sea on a serious offshore sportfishing adventure.
August
Bring the whole family along now that school’s over, and head to the deep waters of the Atlantic in search of the catch of a lifetime. Blue and White Marlin join the offshore party, calling all anglers to sea. 
September
As the crowds start dying down, the fish are at their peak. Come to the Algarve in September and have the waters to yourself, as you go after Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, Sharks, and even more. 
October
Make the most of your last chance to land a tasty Tuna or monster Marlin as the water starts cooling down with the end of summer. Don’t worry, though, as the nearshore fish are still eagerly biting away.
November
Shift your attention to the reefs as the offshore season comes to an end. Beginners and pros alike can get their fill of delicious Bream, Bass, Dentex, Grouper, and many more, to make the perfect dinner.
December
End the year in style with a holiday on the stunning coastline of southern Portugal. Come to the Algarve and forget all your cares, and even indulge in some exciting nearshore fishing for some tasty fish.

The 4 girls were 11, 12, 12 and 13. They had never been fishing before. They are normally afraid to touch anything different. By the end, all of them were baiting their own hooks, holding the fish to take them off the hooks, cleaning the fish for cooking, and cooking the fish. This was a fantastic thing for them, and the adults were totally relaxed as the crew looked after them perfectly.

Accurate casting is needed. If you bring own tackle, 20lbs line is needed due to a lot if sunken woods

New, well equipped Nitro bass boat stocked with quality rods and reels, and plenty of up to date tackle for most any technique you want. Joaquim is professional, knowledgeable, and works to put you on fish, and to make your trip a pleasurable success! As a bonus, the food is fantastic.

We had a great afternoon with Joaquim. Lovely scenery and great boat. Fishing wasn’t quite as hoped as they weren’t biting. However, the trip is great well,worth the cost. We did have some difficulty getting to and from the boat. Due to low water levels it’s a very steep walk. Would definitely recommend.

I'd definitely recommend this trip to everyone who wants to go fishing with his / her family. The duration of this short trip is 2 hours, which felt just about the right. Miguel and his tram are wonderful friendly people and passionate fishermen. I am sure you'll enjoy the trip so will do your children. Thank you so much Miguel for having us onboard!

My husband and I had the most fantastic time on our fishing trip with Captain Pedro and his colleague! Pedro’s knowledge and experience are second to none and we truly enjoyed learning from his experience. He is really kind and helpful and great fun too! Nothing was too much of a trouble for him! We caught a fair amount of fish and had the best time! I honestly cannot recommend this experience highly enough, it made our holiday extra special!

Amazing trip, Pedro and his deck hand really knew their stuff. Brilliant day, they took us to the best spot and saw around 16 Marlin and other wildlife dolphins etc. Got few bites but luck wasnt on our side but thats fishing! Still an amazing trip regardless a proper gentleman with old school fishing knowledge. Will definitely be returning to Pedro’s boat next year!
