    Descripción

    I was born on Faial Island in 1977, where I grew up with a deep passion for the ocean. I started fishing at a young age, gaining experience in many traditional fishing activities, from small wooden boats to the bigger tuna fishing vessels. Also freediving and sustainable spearfishing became popular activities.

    Twelve years ago I moved to Pico Island where, for two consecutive seasons, I worked as a skipper for a local whale watching and dolphin swimming organisation and diving school. Here I had the opportunity to participate in the training of “shark diving guide” with Dr. Eric Ritter and a Wild Whale and Dolphin workshop with Dr. Ingrid Visser. At the same time I worked a part-time contract with the fisheries program at the University of the Azores as a sampler at the fish auction, gaining knowledge of all fishing activities conducted around the islands.

    You can visit 3 islands (Faial,Pico and São Jorge) and have unique experience at the ocean and in the island.

    My experiences and passion for the ocean led me to buy my own fishing boat to earn my living. And I decided to initiate a project allowing visitors to the Azores to join in a traditional fishing activity, to have a unique experience learning about the ocean and Azorean traditions.
