“I definitely recommend these guys for fishing :)”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

My Husband and I enjoyed Big Game Fishing & Jigging with Sergio & Paulo. We saw their boat and signs in the marina and, after seeing other reviews, decided to book. We had a full day big game fishing for tuna, after no luck with marlin off Horta. Sergio took us to an area with good features and soon we saw plenty activity on the surface (and plenty of dolphins!). Although we lost the first hook up, it must have been big due to the speed at which it took line! The second bite provided an excellent fight and resulted the largest fish my husband had ever caught! After heaving it aboard we discovered it to be a yellowfin at about 120kg!! (Possibly a local record!) Although we were heading back, we asked if we could throw out a few more lines to troll one last time. Sergio agreed with about 20mins fishing time left. We soon got our 3rd hook up and again my husband put up a good fight but this fish was much bigger and with all the activity, also snapped off but was an exciting end to the day! We asked if we could have some of the fresh tuna to eat and met Sergio the day after where he gave us a huge portion. (If you ask at Bar Marina, in the old marina, they were happy to cook fish caught on fishing excursions).

We had such a good time that we booked a second day jigging, this time going for the afternoon/evening. Sergio and Paulo were a bit luckier getting bites but were quick to pass over the rod and let us play the fish in. We caught several mackerel, a nice Guilly Jack and a beautiful Amber Jack at about 20kg. This was a fantastic fight on the lighter gear and although I tried my best I was soon exhausted & passed the rod to my husband! We even got a close up with a seagull that managed to fly into the boat! (It was quickly caught and set free with the net).

In and amongst all the great fishing, we also got to see plenty of wildlife (namely dolphin), the whole of the south coast of Sao Miguel and a sunset. I would recommend Seazores and hope you are as lucky as we were with the fish!

“Thanks to Seazores for making our trip memorable”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We had a great time fishing with Seazores in Ponta Delgada. There are many big game boats operating from the harbour and we tried a few different ones. Seazores is not the biggest boat but it is fast and comfortable and less expensive than the bigger boats. The captain is very knowledgeable and got us several hits on the lures whilst tuna fishing and we caught a 120kg yellowfin tuna! In the week we stayed in Ponta Delgada, no one else was consistently catching the tuna. I would recommend you try this company for anyone visiting the Azores and make sure you get a full day trip since the tuna may be an hour or more away from port.

“A wonderful sunset cruise from Ponta Delgada - don't miss it!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We had a wonderful two and a half hour sunset cruise from Ponta Delgada with Seazores last week! It was just the two of us, wanting to get away from the crowds, to see the island from a new perspective, and to watch the sun sink slowly into the sea. Sergio and Paulo's boat was clean and comfortable, the sea was calm, conversation with them was relaxed but interesting, and the views of the western shoreline with its lava cross sections and precariously perched vacation houses were stunning. in a blaze of yellow and red colors, the sun did eventually set, but not before we had enjoyed a fine local wine, with fantastic local bread and cheese, cheerfully served up by Sergio. It was a really enjoyable trip at a very reasonable cost, including hotel pickup. We'll always remember this romantic trip and highly recommend Seazores.

“1 fish, 2 fish, he caught 4 fish!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Our friend Gary arranged a fishing trip for my new husband and Seazores. Wow! He went out around 8am for deep sea fishing. In the US you have to spend hours just to get to your fishing spot. They ended up about 5 miles off the coast and caught 4, yes FOUR big-eye tuna. Scott was thrilled by his experience and he talks about it now almost a month later. it wasn't cheap but it never is. It was worth every penny for sure! Make sure you know what to do with your fish if you go! You know, make sure you have a grill or kitchen because it was soooo delicious!
