The Algarve offers a wonderful Selection of Fishing options. Fishing in the Algarve can range from reef fishing to deep sea Shark and Marlin fishing trips. All of the Algarve fishing trips listed here have been tried by our team.
Due to Portugal's location on a Continental Shelf – which is an underwater land platform that extends to between 50 and 100 Miles in to the Atlantic Ocean - there are a wide variety of fish.
The large predatory fish such as shark and tuna come in to feed on the smaller (bait) fish that live in the shallower coastal waters. As a result there are hundreds of types of marine fish including sardines, bream, bass, mackerel, blue fish, shark, tuna, sword fish, salmon bass and plaice.
A Fishing Licence is required for all Fishing trips listed. We have only selected companies that can organise a licence for you on the day. It is inexpensive and you just need your passport.
At Algarve Activities we currently have a selection of the best boats and fishing guides across the Algarve, and we can also help with Cascais and the Lisbon area. If you are a fishing enthusiast then the sea is the place to be in the Algarve, although we can help with some fresh water options too on request.
Portuguese culture and diet have been long connected to the sea and this is still very much in evidence today with beautiful fresh fish avaiable at reasonable prices across the Algarve on a daily basis.
