Having a fishtrip a week ago with my two children. (50 euro/person 4 hours). The captain and his aid were nice people and aided us with the equippment. However our luck wasnt the best, caught some fishes but most of them were to tiny. There was a lack of chair, standing 4 hours could be a long time if you not are young and fit.
However the trip was nice but could be more comfortable

Went out this morning with Maguel and crew, superb fishing trip caught 5 White Marlin. Captain and crew were all very professional, great company, best fishing gear you can buy. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great fishing trip. Food was good too.

I had a very enjoyable experience with plenty of fish caught. Enjoyed my fishing and was a good morning. However the only negative(not very negative just a small thing) is the captain appears to be a bit of a know it all and develops a bit of an attitude if you are doing something wrong somewhere. I wouldn’t mind it much but I was made seem like I didn’t know anything about fishing even though I am an avid angler, to be fair I’m used of freshwater fishing in lakes in Ireland. Not to worry as it was a great trip, would give it 5 stars otherwise.

It is the faulty towers of fishing without the comedy. A more glacial welcome would only happen in the mortuary slab !!
Throughout the 4h trip paid in cash only get shouted at as lines crossed. They made us fish at 50cm from each other. A complete rip off and waste of time with very unfriendly skipper and hand.
Please do not fall into the same trap

To start i must say i found the captain, Miguel, a very friendly and knowledgeably gentleman but the whole experience was completely ruined by the rudeness of his first mate. i booked a 2 hour trip for my wife and i and 2 teenage boys and were joined by another very nice man and his young son. immediately both our groups noticed that the first mate was not having a good day when he refused to acknowledge anyone who tried to greet him. The captain brought us through some base rules before we left and it was very noticeable how his assistant changed for the better in front of him but while the captain was driving the boat his behavior changed again and was even quiet aggressive at times which normally i would not accept but i did not want to make the atmosphere any worse in the company of the kids. We had to stop off at Lagos to refuel which we thought was a great addition to the trip until the first mate proceeded to fill the tank with a lit cigarette which did not seem to bother the captain, i am no expert but surly this is not good practice. i do not normally write reviews but felt compelled to do so on this occasion, Most people did catch some fish but if you are looking for a family trip please use one of the other companies available in this lovely resort who enjoy what they do and appreciate your business!

Hi Mr. Kenco thank you for your review. Just to inform you the first mate Paulo is no longer working with me since the 4th of August and probably you know why. I am really sorry what happened, because I give every days my best to the customers. Hope to see you again fishing with me. Best Regards Capt. Miguel Alexandre Alvor Fishing Donzela

Booked for two hour Family trip paid around 175 euro for 7 of us ages ranged from 79 year old, 15 year old, 12 year old and 6 year old with parents in our 40's. Trip started well however very arrogant two man crew, did not make any effort to speak until out to sea then tried to be humourous while setting a load of very strick rules about how much to bring line in while fishing ( never had this on previous trips). Once young children started catching mackerel and forgot some of rules the two crew became extremely aggressive and rude. Children became scared of crew and stopped enjoying fishing. I have done this type of trip all around the world for example America, Europe, Africa and have never had such a bad experience. My advise would be AVOID at all costs if you have young children and elderly parents who may not be able to follow the very strict rules immediately. We caught Mackerel but that does not make up for the rude unprofessional crew who completely spoilt this experience. Book at your own risk!!!

Well what can I say first time I went shark fishing ...
we arrived at 7.50 am it looked like tbh it would be pretty crowded at first then guys spread out it was fine
6 fishing rods were set up with a no on them , you picked out of a hat the no that related to that rod ! If that rod got a bite it was your shark !
Well I watched 7 ,1, 3 have a Shark and it was nearly time to leave .. then no 5 rod mine burst into action ! To say I was happy was an understatement!!
We saw dolphins and big tuna in shoals smashing in to makeral wow !
Miguel top skipper and he’s right Haha man looked after you
Would I recommend it well it’s easier when you catch of course !
Would I go back ? Oh yes !

We had a perfect fishing trip, nice boat, a laidback captain and good weather conditions made it a good start of the day! Now we need to clean the fish to set up the Bbq, how good can life be👍👌

We went for a 4 hour tour and it was amazing. The team is very friendly and helpful, the boat was clean and everything well organised. We even saw plenty dolphins that passed near the boat. I would recomend it for everyone even for non fishers, because it's not only an activitie, it's a experience, a must.

As a group of two dads and four teenage boys this was an excellent adventure for all of us.
We booked online, and confirmed by phone a couple of days in advance. (Don't forget your passports for your €5 fishing license that's additional for all over 16's)
We departed on time, travelled 3 miles out, and all had our lines in the water within 45 minutes after a quick intro to bottom-fishing for the novices in our group.
After a slow start the fish, although mostly small, just kept taking the bait (which was good quality and well prepared) and we soon had more than enough to take home for dinner for us and our neighbours!
Both the captain and first-mate were very welcoming, great fun, and tirelessly helped unhook our catch.
All-round an excellent, fun and safe experience for everyone. The fish tasted great too!
