Below are some pictures and video of a fishing trip as well as a write up and cost of excursions available.

Trips & Cruises

Alvro Boat Trips depart and return to the first pier in Alvor, on the riverfront next to the old fish market. Occasionally for operational reasons we have some departures from the marina in Praia da Rocha and on those occasions we arrange free transfers by car from Alvor and surrounding hotels.

Fishing Trips 08:30-12:30 & 14:30-18:30 (4hr trip)

Whether you fish a lot or it is your first time, you will not be disappointed on our fishing trips.
