Native Crew – Fishing & Tours

Native Crew has a trip with your name on it along the stunning waters of Madeira Island.

These waters are known for Amberjack, Great Barracuda, Dentex, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Gray Triggerfish, Skipjack Tuna,  and more – with any luck, you’ll find out for yourself! For these species, you’re likely to drift and bottom fish using light tackle.

Any fish you catch are yours to take home, provided they’re within size and bag limits. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. Your next meal doesn’t get any fresher than that!

Trips with Native Crew are open to the whole family, so go ahead and bring the whole family along! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board.

Your day begins aboard a 22’ Starfisher saltwater fishing boat with room for 4 passengers. It comes with all the essentials. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures. Live bait is on offer, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself.

Trips are run with the help of a First Mate. It’s customary to tip the Mate to show your appreciation. There’s no need to buy a fishing license, so you can drive right over and come aboard without any hassle! Be mindful that some species may have special rules or limited seasons. Simply ask and your captain can tell you more.

Don’t forget to bring a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen (non-spray). Drinks will be available for you. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just be sure to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles. There will be some light snacks provided on board.

You could keep reading this, but wouldn’t you rather be Fishing Like a Native?
