Europe’s #1 Big Game Fishing Spot

Welcome to the “European Paradise” of big game fishing. Our award winning fishing grounds is located in a just 1,000 meter distance in front of the beautiful green Island of Madeira.

Look for a memorable sport fishing experience? Then you are exactly right with us. Here in Madeira the climate is mild all year round, we have a wonderful beautiful island scenery and the fish grow here to world record sizes.

Due that the sea to the island of Madeira runs the migration routes of large fish, blue marlin (up to 500kg) and tuna fish are during the season from april to october to meet. Other species, such as, white marlin, yellowfin tuna, albacore tuna, blue shark, hammerhead, mako shark, dolphin, barracuda, bonito, marlin, swordfish and wahoo ground here also caught in large numbers.

Because Madeira is a volcanic island, there is the advantage that drops the seabed after a short distance forward to nearly 1,000 m. This has the decisive advantage that no long trips are necessary to reach the great fishing grounds. Even after leaving the port, you can start with the fish.
