Captain / Owner: José Furtado is 63 years old and been an ‘Ocean Skipper’ since 1993. José has been a fisherman all his life and started fishing from the rocks when he was just 3 years old. At the age of 12, he bought his first boat, a Kayak of 3.60 m that allowed him to fish out at sea. At the age of 16 and together with 2 friends, he built a wooden boat of 3.50 m. At the age of 24, he bought and rebuilt an 8.0 m ex-ship lifeboat into which he installed a 22 HP Diesel engine. Two years later, he bought a new boat, a 5.30 m ‘Fisher’ model with a 50 HP engine (the boat in which he caught his first Blue Marlin!). Finally, when he was 35, he acquired the ALABOTE which has become a well reputed and professionally run sport fishing charter boat.

Captain / Deckmate: Miguel Furtado is 33 years old (José Furtado’s son) marine biologist and local skipper who has fished with his father since childhood. He caught his first blue marlin with 8 years of age and has been working as a skipper and deck mate with Alabote Sport Fishing Charter’s since 2010. +351 296 636 592 +351 917 405 792
