And I guess catching on a fishing trip is an added bonus because it is never guaranteed.
We booked a 40 euro per person (including the licence fee of 5 euro) 3 hour reef fishing trip departing at 4pm. We left Vilamoura Marina a few minutes late and overall the trip ran a little late, but that was no real problem as we did not have a dinner booked later. Be careful if you do though!
It was a no frills affair and "reef" appears to be a bit of poetic licence as I did not see one. We chugged out at about 15kph for a good 40 minutes and then dropped anchor.
A guy came round with some squid as bait and set up the rods. No real tuition, but if you have done any fishing it is fairly self explanatory.
Within minutes someone had caught a fish, nothing spectacular, but a couple of pounds and from then on, we and our fellow anglers pulled out fish of varying sizes continuously for the next hour or so.
I caught 3 and my 14 year old son caught 2 so we got to experience fishing including the catching and baiting. The fish were quite small so do not expect to be wrestling 20lb tuna out of the ocean (I am sure there is a trip for that) but overall it was exactly what it said on the blurb albeit that I couldn't see a reef!!
