2021 Season for Blue Makaira starts in mid-June.

Update 4th May - We approach the start of our season with an increasing confidence that we will once again be able to welcome our charter guests to Madeira to fish with us on Blue Makaira.

Madeira has taken a very sensible approach in opening its borders with clear guidelines on the requirements for entry with respect to Covid 19 safety, and now with the rest of Europe and the UK taking a more positive view to the safety of travel and tourism, overseas travel is looking a lot more hopeful.

We are expecting a great season with excellent catch reports on the migration path of the Blue Marlin, so a great time to take part in what might be a momentous Blue Marlin season.

For 2021 we have some great offers at the moment to extend your fishing with gratis days. Contact us at info@atlanticbluemarlin.com to enquire and book.

2019 Season. A great season for all the charter boats fishing in the waters of Madeira, with a very large number of good size Blue Marlin being caught. Blue Makaira for the third season running recorded the highest catch and release of Blue Marlin of all of the islands charter boats, going 42 for 86 on Blue Marlin, releasing 40 of which 34 were over 500 lbs with 15 of these over 700lbs and 7 being over 800lbs, with an average weight recorded of about 620lbs!

 

Blue Makaira

Flying the Red Ensign ‘Blue Makaira’ is a 34ft sport fishing boat manufactured by Rodman and powered by two 260hp Volvo engines.

The Rodman 10.40 is a very seaworthy boat, with a hull construction that is second to none. To our added advantage the hull produces a great sound signature that pulls fish up and the crew maintain this advantage with regular hull and prop cleaning.

‘Blue Makaira’ is equipped with the latest generation Navonics systems from Raymarine and is importantly equipped with the latest, and best, fish finder, a 2Kw Chirp Sounder.

She was built in 2006, and has been converted to allow for the greatest comfort for our customers, in the cool main cabin there is very comfortable seating with great views of the rear deck and the lures being trolled.

For your further comfort, there is a WC, wash facilities and a fridge that is always well stocked with soft drinks, water, beer and snacks for the day.

On board there are two fixed video cameras and a number of GoPro’s recording the action on the rear deck, stern view and underwater. Catches that are recorded will be put on a USB thumb drive and presented to you as a memento.

If you are interested, in the cabin is a 16” screen displaying the output of the echo sounder.
