Madeira Sight Casting – 27'

Madeira Sight Casting – 27’ runs angling trips out of Funchal and offers to show you what the local fishery is all about.

Capt. Ricardo will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. He specializes in heavy tackle, trolling, and big game fishing, all to get you on that bite. This involves 4 to 7-hour trips, mainly fishing for Dolphin, Marlin, Amberjack, Tuna, Bonito, and Spearfish, depending on the season and conditions on the day.

Your adventure begins on board a 27’ Faeton boat that can fit a maximum of 3 anglers. The boat is fitted with a toilet, ice box, and fighting chair.

When it comes to rods, reels, and terminal tackle, everything you need is included in the price.

As for fishing licenses, everything will be taken care of by the captain so you don’t have to worry about it.

You can keep anything you catch, as long as it’s legal to do so.

Here to help you with anything you need, the first mate will be on hand during the trip. Leaving a tip for a job well done is much appreciated.

You’ll find free drinks on the boat for your convenience, but you’re always welcome to pack your own drinks and snacks should you want to.

Want to bring the rest of the family along for the ride? Kids are welcome aboard, so you’re free to make it a family adventure.
