I had confirmation for trip. Boat was a no show. My credit card was charged. Captain said he never got request from trip advisor. Blew families whole day of our short vacation. When trip advisor contacted they didn’t seem concerned about my inconvenience if disappointing my 3 grandkids. Yes they said they would refund my money. But offered no suggestions how to make their error up to me.

Half day trip with Carlo and his son.

Both were fun, knowledgeable, and very helpful.

We are a family of 4, and we all enjoyed the trip.

The boat is clean, comfortable and well maintained. They provided quality gear and tackle to use for the trip.

The scenery along the coast is beautiful, adding to the enjoyment of the trip.

If fishing, or just being out on the water is your thing, you will not be disappointed. Just do it!

Fishing with Captain Linhares and Phillip has been awesome. They are true professionals and are extremely gracious. They work extremely hard and know where the fish are. On our first morning we caught two Blue Marlin in the 620 -660 lb range. We are here to fish for big Blue Marlin and glad that I chose the right team. Their boat handling and lining skills exceeded my expectations.

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.

I got in contact with Yulia who is the fishing charter's representative who told me that the weather was a little crazy and advised me that it was best to go for the rock/bottom fishing option. I agreed and I decided to go ahead and book an afternoon trip since I was going to go scuba diving in the morning. Yulia then offered to move the start time an hour back so I'd get more time to prepare which was great.

After getting on the boat in the afternoon to meet the crew and go out to the fishing grounds, it started slow, mainly because I didn't now which technique to use. But once I got the technique down (basically use California Rockfishing but the fish have smaller mouths), I was on FIRE! I caught and caught and caught fish. I could have done that all day actually!

And near the end of the day, I caught what looked like an Amberjack, my first of all time so I caught quite a bit of fish. And best of all, was that I took the Jack to the nearby restaurant which then cooked up my fish dinner. Great times. I need to go back!

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
