Deep sea fishing in Madeira is the ultimate experience for any angler. There are several reasons why fishing in Madeira has become so popular. The pleasant climatic conditions are certainly reason number one for that. Due to the warm Gulf Stream, especially the months March to October of every year are ideal.

One of the most popular fish in deep-sea anglers is the Blue Marlin, which can reach up to 500 kg in weight. You will not forget the fight for such a fish so fast. If you manage to bring it in, your fishing heart is full.

Whether you are a seasoned deep sea fisherman or a novice fisherman. The chances for a capital catch are really high off the coast of Madeira. In addition to the huge Blue Marlin, the bluefin tuna, which reaches up to 360 kg, and the bigeye tuna, which is around 115 kg, are caught very often.

On Madeira you can choose between chartering a boat for 4 or 7 hours or participating in a deep-sea fishing trip. All boats are equipped with the most advanced equipment for big-game fishing.

The method we use is trawling for Big Game Fishing which each rhod is launched out there in the sea and each fisherman choses 1 rhod and the line that runs is a the one that goes (each fisherman has 1 turn for each).
