Rent boat for albufeira sea fishing

You’ll be set up with a specially adapted chartered fishing boat, and all the fishing equipment. You’ll never find a saltier old dog than the local Algarve fisherman: delighted to show you the ins and outs of the reel work required to haul in a hammer-head or two (our forearms are still aching !) while sat sedately in a chair that is seriously bolted to the deck (you’ll be glad of that).  All in all the excitement is guarantee with trips of varying length, commitment and price.
