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.

We where trolling one day I the beginning of May. It Was two weeks to early for most fish species, and there was only tuna in the area now. We didn’t have any luck with the tunas that day (but that´s fishing some times) but the weather was fine and Charlie and Matt did what was possible to find a fish, and they are really an experienced crew. We had a fine day and we would like to come back another time.

Hello Gabriella and Ulf, thank you so much for taking the time to right this kind review. It was a great pleasure to have you both on board the `Mako` boston whaler. Sorry we did not catch you that prize fish!  But hopefully the beautifull Island of Madeira will tempt you into retuning again. And catching that fish of a lifetime. Hope to see you again soon, Best regards Matt and Charlie.
