Are you ready to go on a boat tour with fishing Madeira?

Go fishing in Madeira and experience real fishing adventure. We provide a unique fishing experience for the whole family.
For many years Madeira has been known for its sports fishing qualities. Many Big Game Fishing World Record-breaking giant Blue Marlins were caught in Madeira’s calm waters.

Most of the fish is caught within a friendly 3 miles of the coast, making Madeira a perfect fishing location. Sport fish range from blue and white marlin, swordfish, spearfish, tuna, wahoo, small sharks down to red snappers, jacks and even giant squid fished on night trips, amongst others.

Go fishing with Captain David Abreu, who has over two decades of experience in fishing the waters of Madeira. With David and his crew, you are guaranteed a professional service and dedication on seeking your fish in the best areas around the island.

This fishing tour in Madeira takes place on board the “Cabo São João”, a Bertran 31´ customized sports fisher boat, with the best quality and conditions in the fishing tackle.

Conservation is an important issue for us. David is a member of the Billfish Foundation and the International Game Fish Foundation and practices a “Tag and Release” policy with all billfish species unless there is no chance of survival or it is a potential world record fish.
