Hi! I will be travelling to Azores by the end of this summer (August 31 to September 13) and would like to do some spearfishing while there. I will only be visiting Sao Miguel and have never been in the Azores before. I am not a beginner, but not an expert either. I usually go spearfishing only once a year during the summer; last year I did the Mediterranean, and the year before that I did Bali. Any tips for spearfishing in Sao Miguel Island? I have read that it is better not to rent a charter, but rather spearfish along the coastline because the islands lack of a continental platform. Is there anybody on the island that I could spearfish with? any spearfishing groups in Sao Miguel?
I will only be taking a small Omer spear gun with me. It has a reel, and it is somewhat powerful, but I am obviously not planning on spearing big game. As I said before I am not an expert.
