Madeira is now one of the world’s foremost Bluewater angling destinations. Lying some 360 miles west of the coast of Africa, Madeira and its neighbouring islands straddle the deep blue Atlantic along the migratory routes of some of the most sought-after game-fish. Big blue marlin, big-eye and bluefin tuna, sword fish and shark — all exceed world record sizes in Madeira’s waters and provide serious action year round.
The warm summer months bring vast schools of skipjack tuna and Dorado inshore and blue marlin follow the feast. In turn, the cold green water of winter sees huge shoals of big-eye tuna chasing mackerel and scads providing anglers with what is possibly the finest tuna fishing anywhere.
Add to that the chance of legendary blue-fin tuna, or a high-jumping mako shark, and we think you’ll know why Madeira is quickly becoming an international hot spot for first class fishing (tagging and releasing 99% of our catch).
With only a 3 ½ hrs flight from UK and excellent weather almost guaranteed throughout the season, Madeira has a lot to offer both dedicated anglers and those looking for a family holiday with a few days out. Funchal has wonderful hotels, excellent seafood restaurants, and the whole town has a colonial charm which will leave a lasting impression.
