2019 Season. Blue Makaira is currently undergoing her winter maintenance and will be back in the water in early May ready for our clients to start fishing from mid-May. If you have not booked then please email info@atlanticbluemarlin.com to secure your dates.

Madeira offered some great fishing over the 2017 & 2018 season with good catches of Blue Marlin. Blue Makaira’s average weight of Blue Marlin recorded at 570lbs for 2017 and just over 650lbs for 2018 so we are in high hope for a good 2019 season. With some 100kg+ Big Eye and Yellow Fin Tuna thrown into the variety of the catch it should be a productive year. Madeira also had a few Blue Fin Tuna for 2018, so we should hope for an increase in their number for 2019.

Blue Makaira recorded the highest catch of Blue Marlin of all of the islands charter boats for 2018 and 2017, and recorded a win of the 32nd Blue Marlin World Cup in 2016 with a fish of 983lbs (446kg).
