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.

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.
