Vilamoura Reef Fishing Trip – 3hrs

Not all activities have to take the entire day and if you are looking for a short reef fishing trip, then the three hour option from Vilamoura Marina is ideal.

The skipper of the boat knows the Algarve waters like the back of his hand and can take you straight to some of the best reef fishing areas just off the coast of Vilamoura.

Everything you need for a successful fishing session is provided for you, including all bait, tackle and equipment, leaving you free to cast off and try your luck at catching one of the many species that swim in these areas including sea bream, mackerel, grouper and moray eel.

You don’t even have to fish yourself to enjoy this trip, as special rates are offered for spectators who are keen to take part in the trip but happier watching the others handle the rods!

This is as well a great activity for Stag Do!

This is for 3h Reef Fishing!

A half day fishing trip from Vilamoura Marina is a great introduction the sport and an ideal opportunity to explore a little of the stunning Algarve coast.

The half day fishing trips offer a variety of choices, including a morning or afternoon trip and the choice of either three hours or four and a half hours on board. This makes the trips very adaptable to your exact needs, with the shorter trip being an ideal option for those who may have never been out to sea on a boat before and want to literally test the waters!

All of the different variations of half day fishing set off from Vilamoura Marina, one of the most beautiful marinas in the Algarve and located in the resort town of Vilamoura. The marina itself is very easy to find and there is parking around the marina if you are travelling by car or alternatively transport can be arranged to take you to exactly where you need to go. Speak to one of our friendly team who will be happy to arrange everything that you need for a perfect trip with family and friends.

If you are keen to include lunch in your trip then opt for a morning fishing experience which also includes food on a local beach only accessible by sea and is a wonderful way to incorporate a different element into your day, these morning trips also include dinghy rides into the beautiful local caves – so be sure to take your camera!

A half day trip means that you will have some time to be able to explore the local area, either before or after your Algarve experience, and there is plenty to do around here with lots of bars, restaurants, shops and of course the spectacular boats moored in the marina to marvel at!

The fishing on a half day trip is reef fishing, which means that you do not go too far out to sea and are still able to look at the beautiful Algarve coastline while cruising along to some of the best spots for fishing in the area.

The experienced and professional crew are able to provide everything you need for a successful half day of reef fishing, including all equipment, bait and some top tips for both seasoned fishermen and those new to the sport.

Be sure to take your turn on the “battle chair” on board and feel the movement of the fish as the chair rocks and pulls with you, especially necessary if you are fighting with a larger specimen of fish!

There are of course no certainties about what fish you will catch during your trip but these Algarve waters are known for their large variety of species of fish including sea bream, groupa, mackerel, red sea bream, sole and many more.

On the way back from a successful half day of reef fishing the crew will be looking out for the other star of the sea – dolphins! These playful mammals can often be spotted along the coast so keep your eyes peeled to see these wonderful creatures at home in the wild.

A half day fishing trip is so much more than just an opportunity to catch fish, it is a unique way to explore the Algarve coast, nature and wildlife with something for every member of the family to enjoy.
