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.
