It’s a type of fishing where the bait stays at the bottom, close to the reefs, for the capture of a greater variety of fish, for example: • mackerel • grouper • conger • snapper • etc.The bait used is shrimp and common cockle. This activity is advisable to all lovers of this sport, with or without experience, as you will be accompanied by an experienced crew who will teach you all the secrets there are to know. The equipment and bait are included.

Boys for fishing trip first time
May 2019
We decided to go fishing do booked here as it was quite cheap and we knew we were going to a reef and not trawling
We left from the Albuferia marina and got out to the location after about 15 mins great views as going out
Fishing rods were provided and the bait
We were shown what to do and started fishing
Caught a few small fish nothing to brag about
You have to pull up as soon as you feel a bite as the fish are fast so the bait goes quick
We took are own drinks and some snacks as not provided in the price
Took some photos of what we caught
Good trip and as for the crew they were helpful , we were there for fun and not to talk to the crew they were there if we needed help and the trip back was good for the view of the coast line

Reef Fishing
Oct 2019 • Family
We booked a 3hr reef fishing for 2 adults and 3 kids (7, 8 and 10). We didn’t catch much but enjoyed it nonetheless, our youngest managed to catch a large red snapper so he was delighted. However, despite previous reviews which is why we chose AlgarExperience, the crew were in no way friendly or helpful. They didn’t say hello or anything for that matter when we got on the boat, just started cruising out to location, and once there they told us the basics and that was it. They weren’t particularly friendly and didn’t help the kids baiting up etc. The first thing they said to us was when we returned to dock and we were told there was a tip jar at the back of the boat. I don’t think anyone tipped which said it all. Lastly they didn’t offer the fish we caught to take home which I thought was poor. Would I go reef fishing in the Algarve again? Definitely. With AlgarExperience? Unlikely. Would have been so much better with friendly guides, come on guys it doesn’t take much.

Dear Ed, Thank you for your comment that deserved our best attention. Unfortunately our most experienced staff member was not able to join the experience which resulted too in a communication issue as the members on board didn't speak english so well. Regarding the fish our team always offer the fish that was caught, it is an unusual situation which might have been due to a communication issue. Hope you understand that this is not our usual service. We would be more than glad to see you and your loved ones again. Best regards, AlgarExperience Team

Last minute trip well worth the effort
Jul 2019 • Family
i had promised my two sons aged 11 and 10 a reef fishing trip during our holiday but hadn't managed to arrange anything. We are leaving Albufeira and it's wonderfully welcoming people tomorrow so took a speculative taxi to the marina today and as luck would have it managed to get aboard the 2pm reef fishing trip with Algarexperience Weather was very humid in town so the sea breeze, once we got up some speed out of port, was very welcome.
Skipper took time to do a passing visit to the coast caves which was nice before heading out to the reef, he also checked out three locations using his echo sounder before finally reaching a spot he was happy with. Using shrimp on a simple two hook paternoster set up we all started catching immediately and never stopped until asked to haul in for the trip back. We caught lots of sea bream and bogue, a few grouper and mackerel plus a coup!e of unwanted red sea scorpions. The boys and I had over 30 fish between us and although most were on the smallish side we had some decent sized bogue and two very nice black bream.We were just unlucky that we didn't have a barbeque waiting for us when we got back to shore. In summary a great few hours on the water, very helpful crew, and fantastic for the boys as they didn't get chance to get bored waiting for some action as they were constantly catching or baiting up.
Thanks for a great day out.

Small fish - Big fun crew!
Aug 2018
Crew were a load of fun. Fishing was OK but nothing to get excited about. Nothing bigger caught than 0.25 kilo fish. 5 different sdpecies though, ad a lot of local knowledge. Still fun for the kids.

It was really untertaining.

We noticed that the guides (and the other tourists) throw their cigarettes in the sea although there was a bin on the boat... Felt disappointed to see such a reckless idiot behaviour. The fishes thank you for feeding them.
