Great afternoon, Jorge & Peter were excellent crew. No fish however, plenty of food and cold beer. As most fishermen can appreciate just being on the open ocean in good weather taking in the experience is reward enough, fish are a bonus.
The sail boat is amazing. This was a surprise for one of my friends and we really enjoyed the experience. Everything was perfect and well equipped. If we ever go back to Porto we will make sure to rent this boat again.
Amazing trip! First of all - thanks to Jorge, who advised to change date of trip because of wind and risky weather. Next day he picked us up at the hotel and we had an amazing fishing experience. He and his partner Pedro took care of everything - fishing licenses, equipment, food, beer and wine, explanation, nice talks and perfect music! We are looking forward to come back to Porto and have another one try with Jorge.
If You are looking for a nice boat trip, with great snacks like portuguese chees, ham and beer, than go with Jorge. He is really friendly and comunicative, his boat is classic and comfortable with a lot of space. You will catch mostly seabass by sailing along beautifull coast. Although if You want to catch something biger, thanYou propably need to go to south portugal for some deep ocean fishing. In general: 5/5 points:)
Jorge is great! He picked us up at the hotel, drove us to the marina pointing out restaurants and sites along the way. The fishing tour was great!! Comfortable boat, delicious food and drinks were served, and Jorge was super friendly and helpful. We had a great time!
We booked to celebrate a 30th birthday and had such an amazing time! The hosts were really hospitable and the boat was beautiful and really clean. Fully recommend to anyone looking to book a boat tour in Porto. Highlight of our trip :) Thank you so much.
