Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A successful morning's fishing on the Frontino. Plenty of hard-fighting trigger fish and one grouper, most of them caught on a light spinning rod. We also saw 2 whales and several turtles. The trip was a birthday present from my wife, and couldn't have been better. And thanks to Paulo for finding the fish!

Highly recommend these guys. My wife and I went out for an afternoon looking to catch a tuna. Paulo and Vasco really looked after us and after seeing two different pods of dolphins, a shark and a turtle they we were on with a decent sized big eyed tuna. It was a great afternoon out with a really professional outfit. Thanks guys 👍

Yesterday I went out alone with Paul on a fantastic tour! With his skills he soon got to right spot and yes!! After 35 minutes of strugle I landed a 70 kg tuna. I took a bit to the hotel and me and my wife hade the most delicious fish I ver had. Paul was extremely friendly, with 13 years experience of fishing these waters - a day I will never forget. Although we were only two on the boat, with Paul it could nave been better! Obrigado Paul!

Booked an 8 hour big game fishing trip on the Frontino. Through their website and reviews I believed that this team would put me on the fish. Their website lists good changes of catching tuna or marlin from July to October. While booking through the owner Diogo, he mentioned the weather would be good and they would do their best to catch a nice fish. Which based on reviews here and their website I believed to be a very high possibility. When I arrived at the boat I was greeted by a completely different team, not listed anywhere on their website. Paulo was the skipper and another crew member was on the boat to assist. The first thing he asked was if I am excited and I mentioned I was, he said right away I should not be excited as the possibility of catching anything would be very low. As I fisherman I know many days of no catch, but when working with customers who pay 850 euro for a single day, you should mention this when they inquiry and before booking, not when they already set their foot on the boat. I appreciate Paulo’s honesty and as such blame the owner for not telling me upfront.

We spent all day trolling near shore. The gear was good, the lures looked fine and Paulo seemed to try hard. As he said when I got on the boat, we did not see or catch a single fish. To me this was just a massively expensive sight seeing trip. I would surely not recommend this company for big game or keep your expectations extremely low. This really turned out to be a huge disappointment.

To be fair, the team was very friendly and they did their absolute best to do some sight seeing including dolphins, a whale and a turtle. From the service perspective 5 stars. In the end though when paying 850 for a single day of fishing, I do expect to be warned up front about the low changes of catching a fish and being put on a boat with a different team than listed on the website.

Do not get your hopes up!

Words aren’t enough to describe this amazing experience. Let me start with de boat , Sensei, uauuuu. Big, comfortable and so well equipped, with everything you’ll need. Just perfect for everyone, including the children that came with us. Just as the sea suddenly became our home for a day ! Of course the team that accompanied us provided a fantastic service, always so caring and responsive. Diogo welcomed our family perfectly, made us feel very safe, very comfortable. He kept his promise that we would not end our day without seeing some dolphins and it was just incredible!! 🐬🐬

I had an incredible experience on the fishing tour! Diogo and the team were knowledgeable and friendly, creating a fantastic atmosphere. We were fortunate to catch 2 marlins (800,600), making the trip even more memorable. The equipment was top-notch, and the overall organization was impeccable. A definite 5/5 rating!

We had a perfect half day private charter with Captain Paolo and his First Mate, Bernado. We were two couples seeking merely a nice boat ride to take in the sites but Paolo got us fishing which was an unexpected treat as was a dolphin sighting. We swam for a bit and were treated to some delicious snacks and beverages along the way. Paolo and Bernado were a delight and extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout. It was a highlight to our trip to the island. We would absolutely recommend them and would not hesitate to book with them again. Thank you!!!

Don't think twice! They are the right team! They made my dream come true!
I had the best birthday ever with these guys!
They really know what they are doing!
My dream was catch my first real tuna doing my favorite sport Spearfishing, and these guys they made all efforts to make it come true! And I got my first tuna, a big eye with 135 pounds!!!
I have no word to tell how much thankfully I am to them, and I even can't express it by words!

I just can say that if you wanna fish, if you have a fish that you dream to catch, this is the right company to do it!

All the best to you guys!
