The fishing of big samples of fish as a marlin or a tuna fish is an experience that you will never forget. After the capture of a sample like that, the addiction guts and we want to repeat the feat. The adrenaline goes through all the veins during a combat that can last for hours.
In this type of fishing the utilized method is the troll with artificial samples, or it can also be with death or live bait. All the swordfish (blue or white) are freed alive, except if they are a potential record of the world.
We have fishing trips for 4h or 8h, since the departure of the marina to the arrival. During this time we recomend to bring something to grink or eat. All the equipment in the boat is entirely available for the client.
The marlin season begins in July and ends in October although there are some exceptions where the conditions of the sea and the presence of this fish may extend or anticipate the season.
On the other hand, the fishing of tuna fish begins on April and can extend till November. However, this fish is known for its unpredictability, so there are epochs where it appear almost all year. There are years that this fish is very abundant next to the coast of the island.
The entire coast of São Miguel island is very exceptional for the practice of this kind of fishing and there are some specific benches with some varied species of fish. This way, the fishing place, it’s a daily decision of the skipper that is based on the weather and the information collected about the routes of the fishes so the skipper can assure the security and comfort of the crew and clients.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE ONBOARDING A CHARTER
What type of yacht should I charter?
No matter what type of yacht you choose to charter, we know that you will have a fantastic time on the water. If you are more about the journey, and want a relaxing time aboard, then choose from one of the many sailboats on the platform. If you are more about the destination, and going fast, check out the powerboats. For an exclusive experience, we recommend chartering a luxurious yacht for the day. Finally, we have access to many event boats as well for group outings from 50 – 1,000 guests. If you are still unsure, then just ask!
What should I bring?
Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location. Please coordinate with us regarding any food or drinks that you wish to bring aboard. For term-charters, we recommend using soft-sided luggage, and keeping it simple!
