Madeira Fishing

Big game fishing in Madeira is quite an experience. You could catch White Marlin, Black Marlin, Wahoo, Barracuda, Dorado, Tuna. You may even find yourself a shark! (Hammerhead, Mako , Blue Shark). The Marlin season in Madeira begins in late April and lasts until the end of September. Head to the Calheta Marina in Madeira for your big game fishing experience. The water here is so deep that fishing begins directly outside the marina, so no time is wasted heading out to sea.
