About This Boat

When fished for properly the Marlin fishing off the Algarve coast of Portugal can be as good as any other destination in the world. The big blue marlin turn up around 50 miles out from the eastern end of the Algarve in June and travel down to the deep canyon of Portimao by mid August, staying around till 2nd week in October, depending on water temperatures. Size is very good and we catch very few under 500lbs with 'granders' ( 1,000lb fish) possible.

A big good game boat will use close on 1,000 euros in fuel for a proper full days fishing searching out and fishing for big Blue Marlin, so for the best boat you can expect to pay 2,000 euros for the full day when chartering a boat to chase these superb fish.

We can advise you on the options for this more expensive charter fishing of its what you are really looking for!

As an alternative to Blue Marlin, for those of you a tighter/smaller budget we can offer fishing for White Marlin which also turn up of the Eastern Algarve around 1st to 2nd week August then travel down to the Western Algarve again till October, again depending on water temperatures.

The summer of 2013 was incredible with many boats reporting over 50 hits a day from large shoals of White Marlin

Prices for our White Marlin fishing bookings is much lower than for the 'blues' at around €600 euro's a day for 3 anglers fishing

On these charters we do occasionally hook blues on the smaller white lures, but very often lose them due to the tackle being inadequate for the much larger fish. Dorado and various tuna can be taken in numbers whilst fishing for whites and this summer we will be targeting monster tuna that turned up this year.

Its important to note that unlike some the less scrupulous 'tourist charter boats', we will not take you out fishing unless we are sure there are marlin around and we will never take you out when its too rough and unsafe or unfishable in reality.
