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).

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.
