Two half days on Dream Catcher with To and Claudio

Good couple of days despite somewhat indifferent weather. Quality boat and gear run by professional and friendly crew. Hooked (unfortunately in the bill) a big Blue Marlin on day 2 only to lose it after 20 crazy minutes!! So close……

Second trip with Captain To’

This was our second trip with the Rampage. ” Dreamcatcher”
Great sea boat. Very stable in fresh conditions.
As before, Capt.To’. And first mate Claudio worked hard to get us hooked up which they achieved after 3 hrs. On an Amaral lure.
They guided my 14 yr old son through the experience of a lifetime to successfully get a 500+ lb
Blue Marlin to the boat.
Then immediately set off for another.!

These guys know what they are doing. Consummate professionalism at all times
We add our thanks to all the others you’ve helped achieve a dream.

Half Day trip with Captain To and Claudio

I had a great Day on the Dreams Catcher with Captain To and Claudio. They are both very friendly, pashioned and professional fisherman and teach you everything you have to know to catch and land a Marlin. We caught a 500 pound Marlin. After releasing, they tried to catch more.
Afterwards we had som beer and puncha. It was a realy great Day and I certainly will come back to fish again with the Dream Catcher.

2 great days with a professional team

I had the privilege of spending 2 days out on the dreamcatcher, with Antonio, Sean and Francisco. In difficult conditions they pulled a superb result out of the bag on day 2, my first white and my record Blue Marlin (700+). I spent a long time researching this trip and was not disappointed at all, they did not stop working and were happy to discuss other lure options and happy for you to be involved in the chase.

The boat is great and has real presence and is very comfortable for days out on the water.

Communication, prior and after the trip was excellent and unlike other outfits who disappear at the end of the day, he was happy to share a beer and made time to talk to my daughter and make her feel part of it all.

Thanks again and looking forward to next year.

Great experience

What à day , thanx to the crew


Just plain fabulous

It was my first time ever going onto big game fishing . Usually i limit myself to diving and taking pics of a fish in his habitat .  Being able to experience the big game fishing was a big Wow .  What makes it extremely special for me was the knowledge of the skipper To   about these animals and the gentleness with what he treated the animal, reoxigenated it, held him up right till he was fit for release .  To be able to see such a beautifull creature from so close was an absolute top experience . the fish we caught was a 600 lpds blue marlin

Fabulous Boat & Crew

Captain To Neves and Tonio are one of the best outfits in Madeira. Based in the beautiful town of Calheta. The boat is probably one of the newest and best kept models I have ever been out on. As a woman 4 months pregnant, I felt happy, safe and comfortable with this crew always. Drinks and lovely Madeiran sandwiches were provided. We had a wonderful time hanging out on the boat. Captain To was very honest with us about the weather and best time for us to go fishing. This is not a money making venture like some other outfits my husband and I have gone fishing with. These guys genuinely love fishing and try their best to ensure the guests have a great time on the water. Tonio the deck hand is hilarious and went such a long way to make us smile. We had several strikes but netted my much sought after dorado. I was ecstatic!!! I would not hesitate to recommend these guys, they are very skilled, professional and put the customer’s needs first…Thanks all see you again soon…

First blue marlin of the season 2016

Went out looking for tuna but caught 350kg blue marlin! Our first experience of deep sea fishing! Trip of a lifetime! The captain and Tony the crew were just as excited as us! Definitely recommend.
