Sports fishing on the open sea on board the Albatros

Embark on an unforgettable day of sea fishing! You do not need experience, young and old can participate in this sporting event. We leave at 7 am from the Ostend fishing port. On the outward journey to the fishing grounds, the crew helps you prepare the fishing lines. Once the ship has arrived at its destination, the ship’s siren will sound, indicating that it is time to cast the fishing lines. After spending an entire day at sea, the vessel will return home. On the return trip, the fish that has been caught will be cleaned and upon arrival, you will get to keep your share of the catch free of charge! 

In summer, you will mostly catch mackerel, redfish and garfish, whereas in the spring and autumn, it will be tasty cod, common dab, whiting and flatfish. Those who prefer taking in the healthy sea air are also more than welcome! We will provide you with all the necessary equipment, which can either be rented or bought. You do, however, need to bring your own packed lunch – hot and cold beverages can be obtained on board. The vessel is equipped with the most sophisticated navigational equipment to be able to trace wrecks and fishing grounds and meets the strictest safety standards.
