Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy the Big Game Fishing in the Azores. The Azores is known for having a very rich biodiversity. Fishing lovers will be amazed not only by the fish wealth but also by beautiful landscapes and sea life. While fishing it is common to see several kinds of dolphins, turtles, whales, such as the Sperm Whale and, the Flying Fish flying in the sea surface. There are excellent fishing grounds around the islands featured by a coastal shelf rich in seamounts. These shallower areas of greater productivity are rich in several premium fish species, which make these areas outstanding for Bottom fishing and Jigging practice. Trolling is also rich in Longbill Spearfish, anchovies, Skipjack tuna, largetooth sawfish, mackerels and others.
The activity starts at Portas do Mar. The boat "Rabão" is operated by captain Carlos Linhares, an experienced and bilingual fisherman with more than a decade of fishing experience. The boat is anchored in the bay Ponta Delgada. It is possible to travel between the several islands of the Azores quickly and in the comfortable boat. This boat is great for the practice of Big Game Fishing as well as other activities of the sea like Coast Fishing and Bottom Fishing. All fishing gear is provided by the crew. The "Rabão" is internationally recognized for its navigation capabilities and the luck that brings the occupants in the catches.
