Fishing in Azores

Sitting a thousand miles east of Portugal’s mainland in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, the Azores Islands may seem a bit out there as a vacation spot. But if you’re looking for red-hot angling action, there are few better places on earth. Azores fishing charters will deliver everything you’ve ever dreamed of. From exciting reef fish to grander Marlin, everything is possible.
 
Starting with reef fish, you’ll have a wealth of targets at your disposal along these rocky bottoms. Oversized Bluefish, Amberjack, Seabream. Barracuda, Parrotfish, and Amberjack are all available. There’s even freshwater fish on offer if you head inland, with Rainbow Trout, Carp, Pike, and Perch starring in the stunning mountainous lakes and streams. 
 
But the real exciting action takes place offshore. You won’t have to venture far, as you’re already out in the heart of the Atlantic. Within just a few minutes from shore, you could be going after Blue and White Marlin, Yellowfin, Bigeye, and massive Bluefin Tuna, along with a range of Sharks. 
 
The beauty of fishing in this part of the world is that you’ll be on the fish in no time. Trips as short as 4 hours can give you a chance at each of the prized species here. However, if you’re intent on getting a Billfish “Grand Slam” or want to land that fish of a lifetime, consider spending at least a full day aboard your Azores fishing charter. 

 

Rules & Regulations

You don’t need a fishing license aboard a registered Azores fishing charter boat. But if you plan on fishing from shore or in freshwater, you’ll need a Sportfishing License or an Inland Waters Fishing License. These can be problematic to obtain as a foreigner, so be sure to look into it before buying that extra hold baggage for your fishing gear.
 

Azores Fishing Seasons

January

Kick off the year with awesome angling. This may not be the height of the Azores fishing calendar, but you can still catch some huge Albacore, Amberjack, Grouper, and Sharks.

February

Even in the coldest month of the year, you’ll rarely see your breath in the Azores. What you will see are a lot of big Amberjack, Barracuda, Seabream, Albacore, and Sharks!

March

Albacore high season rages on and the reefs are always full of fish. You can also catch spring season Bluefin Tuna this time of year if you’re after a real monster.

April

April is still low tourist season in the Azores, meaning more water for you to enjoy! This is the peak of the spring Bluefin season, and a great time to spot whales while you’re fishing.

May

Temperatures rise into the high 60s in May, and the fishing really starts to heat up, too. Mako Sharks are on fire this time of year, and the first of the White Marlin are showing up offshore.

June

The deep sea fishing Azores anglers look forward to all year is here, with Bigeye Tuna, Blue and White Marlin, Longbill Spearfish, and more. The reefs are just as active, with tons of Triggerfish and Amberjack.

July

Visitors to Sao Jorge Island can enjoy a week of concerts and celebrations at the Velas Cultural Week. Everyone else can enjoy epic Billfish and Tuna fishing!

August

Faial Island celebrates the Week Of the Sea, a musical and cultural event in honor of the ocean. It’s a great time to celebrate it–this is the peak of the Azores Marlin fishing season!

September

Blue and White Marlin, Bigeye, Bluefin, and Yellowfin Tuna, Longbill Spearfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi–and that’s just the bluewater bite! You won’t be short of action however you fish in September.

October

Most of the summer crowds have disappeared by October, but the water is as active as ever! This is a great time of year to catch huge fish without picking up a big tab at the end of the day.

November

The last few Blue Marlin and Bluefin Tuna are still around in November, and the reefs are bursting with Amberjack and Grouper. Take your pick and head out for an exciting charter.

December

Temperatures are still in the mid-60s throughout most of December. Visit during the holiday season, and you can reel in some monster bottom fish for a real festive feast.

Coastal fishing was nice. It’s my second visit in, July. I fished with a crew I met last time in the Marina and once again, there was a lot of Dolphins. Seeing all the Dolphins is absolutely amazing, but makes fishing a bit challenging.

Keep in mind that it is fishing. There is no guarantee that you might catch something, or catch what you expected on forehand. The fish might be somewhere else then where you are.

Big game can be hit or miss depending on which whales are around the islands. Inshore fishing is basically a sure thing and the landscape vistas are top notch. Well worth the experience

you have to keep in mind, that actually adventure is only in case you are catching the fish, otherwise it's just a ride on a boat. The captain is trying to make it happen, his assistant the same, but not everything is in their power.

Belle expérience, joli cadre et zone avec beaucoup de poissons (pêche active). Pedro et sa sœur était très réactifs, disponibles et fiables. Je recommande cette expérience (très bon rapport qualité/prix par rapport à ce qu’on trouve sur l’île). Pedro a été un capitaine à l’écoute et très sympathique.

Captain Pedro has an almost life long experience with fishing and boating. He also has a deep appreciation and love for Sao Miguel. That said, he provided our family with an amazing experience, catching many fish and also seeing what we now think is the most beautiful thing we have seen on San Miguel… The ocean caves. We would definitely do this trip again, and I recommend it as highly as we can. Many thanks for a great sea adventure.

It was a tough day out as no fish were biting. We tried coastal trolling and bottom fishing both. Because no fish were biting, Captain Adriano was determined to get us on some fish and gave us WAY more time than he was obligated to. I appreciate the the fish do not always cooperate, but I also appreciate a captain who will put the work in when they aren't hopping into the boat. We had a very pleasant trip and appreciated the day out with Adiano.

Everything was top notch from communication to finding and catching fish. He knows where the fish are. He’s gentle and explains about the fish, the area, and other marine life. She taught us how to prepare the fish and we took them to a recommended restaurant in the beach and they prepared them for us to eat. What a perfect, amazing day we will always remember.

We had a fantastic morning's fishing with Adriano and his mate. He knew all the best spots to fish and constantly moved us around whenever there wasn't much action. We caught grouper, sea bream, barred hogfish and trigger fish. The trigger fish put up a great fight and we caught 9 of them altogether. Would definitely recommend this company.

What an amazing day. Captain Pedro is a complete expert and seasoned guide and commer ial fisherman. He will even tell you where you can get your catch prepared and served. Will fish with him first time, everytime from now on. A total bargain AND world class getaway experience on the rugged, isolated North Shore of Sao Miguel.

We had a blast with captain Pedro and is friend Miguel! Two really kind gentleman! We caught a lot of fish from grouper to barracudas, rockfish, lumberjack and others! He knows the best spot around! We took a half day trip(4 hours) but he extended the trip to 6 hours because we had fun and there’s was a lot of action going on! I 110% recommended a trip with Pedro, you will have more then enough for your money! 🙏🏻 fish on! 🎣

We really enjoyed the fishing trip. Although the weather wasn't that good (we were happy we brought rain coats) we had a great time with both crew members. We did not stick around one place too much when it appeared the fish wouldn't bite which was great. They also took into account one of us might get seasick by making medication available and choosing fishing spots where the water was not that wild. When we come back to the Azores in the future, we surely will go fishing with them again!
