Margarita

Marina Do Funchal
Funchal MA, Portugal

Margarita Sportfishing operates out of Funchal, on the sportfishing paradise of Madeira. The area has become synonymous with Marlin fishing due to the incredible size and number of fish that can be found here. Captain Carmo Rodrigues specializes in landing the biggest Blue Marlin these deep waters hold.

Madeira is one of those special places where you can be out in the deep almost instantly. Instead of spending half your trip just getting offshore, you can be trolling as soon as you leave the harbor. As well as Blue and White Marlin, you can also target Spearfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Albacore Tuna, and much more.

The “Margarita” is a 35’ Henriques Maine Coaster powered by twin 200 HP Volvo engines. She has ample deck space, a spacious cockpit, and a head. She also boasts a fighting chair and the finest equipment and lures to make your trip a success. Throw in high-tech electronics and a multimedia system for your favorite tunes, and you’re ready for battle.

How long you fight for is up to you, with half and full-day charters to choose between. Even on a half-day trip, you’ll be able to get in some epic hook-ups and maybe even land a Marlin. Spend the whole day at sea, and the sky’s the limit - just check out the Margarita’s past catches!

This is your chance to take on the ocean’s top predators in their favorite hangout. Take one look at the size of the fish here, and you’ll never want to fish anywhere else. So step aboard and go make your fishing career!
