July 9th 2016. A fantastic win on the 4th July with a fish weighed in of 983lbs (446kg) for Blue Makaira in the 32nd Blue Marlin World Cup. A really great day for the crew, fisherman , Blue Makaira, Calheta and Madeira. Madeira has now taken the cup for the last two years quite an achievement.

Madeira

Map of the Madeira island

Madeira is a beautiful island in the Atlantic Ocean, some 500 miles South West of the most southern point of Portugal.

Madeira was discovered early in the 15th century by the Portuguese navigators João Gonçalves Zarco, Tristão Vaz Teixeira and Bartolomeu Perestrelo, and now Madeira is an autonomous region of Portugal.

Madeira Islands are just a short trip from main land Europe (about 3 hours flight from the UK), a destination where you can combine your holiday fishing with the opportunity to enjoy the sea, mountains, and fantastic scenery.

Madeira is a popular destination for tourists of all ages. Its temperate climate (between 20 and 27°C) makes Madeira a very comfortable destination all year round.

Madeira is famous for its fantastic food and wines, not least the Madeira Wine. You will find that there is one thing that Madeira is not short of and that is good restaurants, for which Calheta has more than a fair share.

Madeira has so many attractions, other than the world class fishing, it would be hard to cover them on this web site, more information is readily available elsewhere on the web, but we suggest the links below are a good place to start.
