This morning trip will take you on a light tackle coastal adventure in pursuit of Grouper, Mackerel, Jacks, Barracuda, Bluefish, and who knows what else.
The charter will also include snacks, water, beer, and even red and white wine! Alabote Sport Fishing Charters have been operating out of Ponta Delgada, on the island of São Miguel that is a part of the Azores archipelago, since 1998. Our experienced crew is made up of an expert captain and two deck mates, one of whom is a marine biologist. The whole crew has extensive experience of fishing the local waters, having lived and fished in the Azores all their lives.
You will be fishing with top of the range equipment with 20 lb Shimano TLD reels with stand-up harnesses on board as well.
Capt. Jose Furtado has been an ocean Skipper since 1993. He has fished all his life, for more than half a century, starting fishing from the rocks at the age of three! By the time he was 12, he had bought his first boat, a kayak that allowed him to fish out at sea. After progressing through boats of increasing size through his life, he finally acquired the 'Alabote', when he was 35.
