The fish we catch ...
We specialize in big Blue Marlin although in the last few years we have become known as the boats that can deliver tuna and pretty big ones at that! Madeira has built the reputation for producing some of the biggest game fish around and therefore attracts private boats and the most famous captains and fishermen from all over the world. The marlin season in Madeira begins in late April and lasts until the end of September, and due to the deep water here, fishing begins directly outside the marina so there is no time wasted in catching that fish of a lifetime! ... Fenders in, lines out is how we play it here!
We also target white marlin, speafish, wahoo, barracuda and mahi mahi. We can also be found searching out the broad bills and sharks as well (hammerhead, mako and blue).
We operate a 'Catch & Release' policy for billfish and have a great respect for these beautiful creatures.
You will also see many species of dolphins, whales, sharks, turtles, sea birds and rugged breathtaking coastal scenery with deep ravines and amazing waterfalls, and of course the amazingly beautiful clear azure coloured water. This is an island you will never forget full of lush green vegetation and flowers and the most amazing walks and views you can imagine.
We also offer a very comfortable villa with swimming pool, set in beautiful gardens with huge palm trees and tropical plants.
Next to the pool is a really lovely club house, with a kitchen and very large inside barbecue.
There is a television, great stereo system and lots of comfy seating and dining area all in the fishy theme!
By the pool are are sun chairs and a large hammock, this is all only 5 minutes from the marina in Calheta and where the charter boats are berthed.
