Azores: Fishing

Europe's Best Kept Secret

Azores Fishing

Located in the middle of the deep blue waters of the Atlantic, it is no wonder that the Azores are great for fishing. In coastal waters, charters can be hired for bottom fishing, live bait fishing, trawling and jigging. A large variety of fish including Blacktail Comber, Common Seabream, Guelly jack, Forkbeard, Offshore Rockfish, Axillary Seabream, White Seabream, Chub Mackerel, Dusky Grouper and Largescaled Scorpionfish can be caught in these ways. Beach fishing and big game sport fishing (marlin, swordfish and shark) are also popular in the Azores. You may even spot dolphins or whales from your boat!
