Dream Catcher Madeira

Dream Catcher Madeira offers amazing trips off the coast of this beautiful island! Captain To Neves and his first mate are both experienced fishermen with a wealth of local knowledge. They are tireless in their efforts to get everyone hooked onto the fight of their life in one of the best and most beautiful big game fishing spots in the world.

The Dream Catcher is an American-built Rampage saltwater fishing boat – one of the toughest boats ever made. Powered by twin VolvoPenta 230 HP engines, you’ll waste no time getting out to the deepest waters, especially seeing as they are right outside the harbour!

The boat comes fully-rigged with the best fishing tackle and electronics around, including Raymarine GPS and fishfinder, and Shimano and Penn reels ranging from 30 to 130 lbs. It also boasts a fighting chair, head, livewell, and outriggers.

There’s a spacious interior and a flybridge where you can relax between bites, as well as a small galley where the crew will prepare you lunch on full day trips.

You’ll be targeting big game pelagics such as Blue and White Marlin, Bluefin and Bigeye Tuna, Mako Shark, and Mahi Mahi. You can also reel other great fish famous for their taste or tenacity such as Wahoo, Amberjack, Barracuda and Red Snapper.

All trips come with fishing licences for all on board and free cleaning and filleting for anything you want to take away with you. You are also more than welcome to bring your own snorkelling or scuba diving gear and go diving off the boat.

Join Dream Catcher Madeira and explore some of the most productive waters in the world, making some amazing memories!

I have been fishing with my father since I was able to hold a rod. It has always been the driving passion of my life. When I was 20, I got my first job as a first mate and that's when I got involved in serious big game fishing. I started skippering at the age of 24, and began entering tournaments, ranking national champion twice in a row in 2007 and 2008, and taking bronze in the FIPS world championship in Xabia in 2009. Since then I have competed and ranked in many championships and skippered several boats in the Algarve, until I decided to buy my own boat and take it back home. I was tired of traveling 100 miles or more in a day when I could simply pull out of the harbor back home and be in the deep waters and with the biggest fish immediately.
