The Azorean sea is one of the favourite destinations of the fans of big-game fishing. Enormous blue and white marlins swim in this part of the Atlantic, as well as dolphin-fishes and Atlantic bluefin tunas, among other species of tuna. Between the islands of the triangle (Faial, Pico and São Jorge), the challenge is always on, even though any of the remaining islands can be a point of departure for high quantity and quality fishing outings. On land, it is possible to find many specialised operators of big-game fishing. Those that prefer to fish independently may rent boats and equipment and leave in search of the coveted trophies.
