Faro, Portugal

4Picture_2.png4Picture_3.png This was my next stop of Faro portugal. the great views are complemented by amazing architecture. every body her speaks Portuguese and its hard to get directions from any one but everybody tries there best to understand what I'm saying and occasionally the speak english and can help me around this city. my hotel is a five star hotel called the Hotel Eva. this is a nice hotel i got a deal for $98 a nigh which isn't to bad. My room is Nice and the bed is comfortable .5Picture_2.png The view from my room is beautiful. Today i'm going scuba diving in the Algarve . the instructors knew a ton about the marine life around Faro. we saw so beautiful marine life. We went to a ship reck and saw sharks like hammer heads and blue sharks. the instructors were very nice. this was a great trip i highly recommend it to anyone who likes sharks.hammerhead2.jpeg
after this day of shark fun i decided to go deep sea fishing the next day to add to the beautiful days on the water. Even though i had to get up at six thirty A.M. i still had time to grab a quick breakfast before i left to catch the boat. we left from a small port off the coast of Faro. from there we had like an hour of traveling over the wavy ocean till arriving at a very desolate area with no boats in sight and thats were we casted our lines and waited but it didn't take to long. my pole jerked and the battle started. with some help and about 25 minutes of fighting the large fish was hauled out of the ocean. It was a enormous blue marlin, this was the biggest fish i have ever seen. 643_Jakes_..y_bite.jpeg That was so exciting to catch a fish that big. Im glad that was enough excitement for the day cause we didn't have any more luck with fishing for the rest of the day. the tour guild and fishing guild talked about there boat. It was called the pescamar 1, it was a 33 foot fishing boat with two turbo charged diesel engines. it has GPS radar and auto pilot. I got back to my hotel at nine Pm it was a long day but i have sea cave tours the next day and i was excited for that.
Sea caves are today i'm stoked and cant wait to get on the boat. when we left the port the took us down the coast and we saw some of the smaller caves but still great views where ever u look. the boat slowed down and stopped and we took a dingy to the beach were they set up a wonderful BBQ in the sand. After we stuffed our faces the took us out to the caves where we got pictures of caves. They put the dingy in the water and we spend off towards the caves. they were a lot bigger the closer we got. Some you could fit a school bus in. this was a great experience. On the way back we didn't see a lot of dolphins but there was one or two swimming beside our boat.
