Nice day of fishing
We booked the four hour cruise. We had a great day with good service. Although we didn’t catch anything, but that is fishing. You never know.

Nice people but poor service
Sep 2018 • Family
We are a family of 4 adults (no teens but Trip Adviser makes you choose family with either young children or teens and there is not an option for adult siblings or adult children) We are very experienced in deep sea fishing and we wanted to try big game fishing. We booked a half day excursion for the following morning at the small office on the dock. The woman in the office was very nice but as we now know, she knew nothing about big game fishing. There were photos in the office that were used to explain the tours. She led us to believe that the boat would use tech equipment to know where the large fish were and then take us out to those spots. She showed us a computer in the office that tracked weather as well. This is what we do for regular fishing at home so it seemed normal. Unfortunately,there was no such equipment on the boat! She also led us to believe that we would use fishing equipment -- rods, bate etc. -- and that we could switch to "normal" fishing if there was no big game to be found. This was also not true. The sign said 400 Euros but she showed price sheet for 600 Euros, which seemed quite steep for a 4 hour trip. I showed her the website of other companies that said 400 Euros but she insisted it was 600 Euros. Stupid us for accepting the price -- it was nearly 5pm and we did not think we would be able to find another company that was still opened in order to book for the next day. The boat was fine and the skipper and mate were very kind and nice. Then they started driving the boat fast. After an hour I inquired when we would be stopping to fish. They said there is "no stopping" -- the whole 4 hours would be driving around dragging a hunk of meat from the side of the boat. If a fish would bite the meat, the line would tighten and then one of us could try to reel it in. What? We literally drove around for 4 hours, very fast. We never touched a fishing rod. I have no idea how a fish could possibly catch the bate that was moving so quickly. Plus, the four of us were sea sick from all the bumps. There was no stopping the boat for 4 hours and no fish to be seen. After nearly 3 hours, I inquired if we could switch to regular fishing and was told "no, we don't do that." After a miserable 4 hours, we got back to shore. I gave the skipper my visa and he said it was cash only! $722! We didn't have that sort of cash with us and the girl in the office had not told us that they were cash only. The skipper showed us how to set up a PayPal account and send him the money. This happens all the time, he said. I told him that it would be better if he told people BEFORE the trip that it is cash only and he shook his head. Stay away from this group. There are other much more reputable, cheaper and better groups out there. I'm so sad that we spent so much hard earned money for such a miserable afternoon. At least they were nice people but that's about it.

Dear Marie, First of all, thank you for your review. All reviews help us grow as a company. We apologize for our services not pleased you. Our team knows all about the fishing services and why it informs and explains to the customer how they work.For this we use our office. We have our sales catalog, with images and prices for each fishing activity and boat. Regarding prices, these correspond to activities that the customer chooses. Prior to your choice you are explained various types of fishing and prices. We also inform you what this price includes (briefing, insurance, all fishing equipment, drinks and meals and others). Since we have different fishing activities they can not be performed simultaneously. The fishing equipment is different, the area of fishing varies according to the activity and also its price. According to the customer's request for big game fishing was presented the price for it. Being that our prices did not change, 400 € for Coastal fishing and 600 € for Big Game Fishing. The boat is fully equipped with navigation and safety technologies. We always have all the necessary equipment to carry out the fishing activity. The recommended and for several years at sea, the experienced captain keeps his boat in progress at 7 nos. At Big Gme we catch large fish that swim quickly. Right place and a little patience are the key to success in the Azores. Big Game Fishing is just that. It's fishing!!! Regarding the method of payment, we do not yet have a machine to receive payments by card. By request of several customers we will improve in this aspect and by a machine! There are several fishing companies because fishing for us (residents) is of great importance.Each company according to various aspects to take into consideration as dimensions of the boat, capacity and facilities of the boat, types of fishing and its equipment as well as the service provided have different prices. It is up to you dear client and visitor to inform yourself and to book in advance the company the service according to the price that pleases you! Once again our apologies for not having informed you of the methods of payment available in our company. Although you did not like it, it was a pleasure to have you aboard our boat Rabão. With best regards, Oceantur Sport Fishing Team Nice people but poor service - with good mood
