Take part in the fishing traditions of the people of Azores on a half-day boat trip from Ponta Delgada. Relax as your skipper leads you out on the water, where you can try jigging, trolling, and deep light tackle.
What to Expect
Spend some time fishing off the coast of Ponta Delgada with a half-day boat trip out on the water. Enjoy your excursion out to sea on a boat equipped with everything you might need. Practice techniques such as jigging, trolling, and deep light tackle while you enjoy on-board food and drinks.
Heading out onto the water, you might try your hand at jigging, a recent technique targeting pelagic found on rocky bottoms. With this, you will likely catch amberjack, guellyjack, bluefish, barracuda, and seabream. You may also try trolling, a similar style that yields larger catch. Another method that is effective year-round is deep light tackle, performed with a fishing rod, up to 3 hooks, and using natural bait such as shrimp, mackerel, and sardine.
When you are on the boat, you will have plenty of time to relax as well. Drinks are available and you will have a skipper and deck mate to not only navigate the boat, but also assist you on-board.
