Booked a reef fishing trip for two, paid 70 euros + 6 for fishing permits. Staff was rude and aggresive. When my husband refused to fish with their antic gear and rusty, torn off hooks, he was being threaten with a huge hook by his neck by the captain's helper, and shouted at him: is this hook sharp enough for you??? I couldn't believe my eyes and I seriously feared for our safety and was glad that there were another 4-5 people with us on that boat. The only reason we did not report this to the police, was that it was our last day in Portugal and did not want to spoil it more than we did already by booking that fishing trip. Other than this... the experience was terrible!!! they sailed for 40-45 minutes, anchored and the captain and his helper started fishing themselves without even caring about their guests who paid hundreds of euros to be there... The fish was mackerel mostly, the size my 6 year old son would catch from our Newhaven beach on a normal Saturday visit. Save your time and money and avoid by all means! The english guy taking bookings at the marina was also rude and arrogant!!! He made us wait and he laughed in our face and we told him about the portuguese guy threathening my husband. I will warn everyone going to Portugal to stay away from such called fishing experiences!!!!!!
