Albufeira Reef Fishing

Reef fishing trips in the Algarve are a great way to experience the high seas off the coast while getting close to the species of fish out there!

Get on board a three hour reef fishing boat trip from Albufeira Marina and try your hand at fishing, whatever your age or level of experience.

The fully equipped boat has all the bait and tackle you need and the experienced crew can teach you all the basics to ensure a fantastic day of fishing at sea.

Passengers are taken out to a location about ¾ of a mile from the main coast of the Algarve to a location especially sourced by the crew and once the anchor is dropped the fishing can begin with waters between 20 and 30 metres deep offering a rich choice of fish to catch including mackerel, grouper and snapper.

There are two different options for Albufeira boat trip fishing trips, one taking three hours and offering reef fishing and a second option taking six hours and focused on shark fishing, but both being suitable to people of all ages and levels of fishing experience.

If you have always fancied yourself as being a great fisherman then this is the perfect place to show off your skills on board a full equipped boat with all the bait and tackle you need, however for those that may be new to the sport there could be no better place to learn as you are guided by experienced crew who can teach you all the basics and so much more to ensure a fantastic day of fishing at sea.

The reef fishing trips and shark fishing trips start from Albufeira Marina, just west of the main city of Albufeira and easily accessible by car or public transport.

For the reef fishing, passengers are taken out to a location about ¾ of a mile from the main coast of the Algarve to a location especially sourced by the crew as being a perfect spot for some great fishing!

Once the boat is in the ideal location, the anchor is dropped and the fishing can begin with waters between 20 and 30 metres deep offering a rich choice of fish to catch including mackerel, grouper and snapper.

This type of fishing uses a method where the bait, of shrimp and cockle, stays close to the reefs and the sea bed to encourage the widest variety of fish to take a bite!

To be able to tackle the larger fish out there then you need to head further out on your Algarve fishing trip to around 10 miles from the coast where you can then find more exotic species such as blue shark, short fin mako and others using the tasty bait of sardines to lure in the fish.

Everything you could possibly need for a successful day of fishing at sea is organised for you for the fishing trip, including the bait and equipment and even the fishing licenses to ensure everything is above board!

There is of course, no guarantee that you will bag yourself the catch of the day but thanks to the friendly and knowledgeable crew on board you will have a better chance than most in catching some fish while on your trip.

Enjoy a relaxing day at sea while fishing for spectacular species off the sunny coast of the Algarve on an Albufeira Boat Trip Fishing trip.
