Big Game Fishing Madeira will help you make the most out of your fishing trip. They offer action-packed trips and target the fastest and biggest offshore species you can find in the area.

Come aboard “Xareu”, a 42’ Rodman sportfishing boat. This spacious vessel accommodates up to 10 guests. Since all trips are private, you’ll always have the whole boat for your group only, regardless of the number of people. The boat has two powerful 430 HP Volvo Penta engines, flybridge, a fighting chair, a private bathroom, several beds, and a kitchen that’s available for all guests to use.

The boat also has a swimming platform, which is used to help people in wheelchairs get on board without any difficulties. You’re welcome to bring your snorkeling gear if you want. In case you want to spend some time snorkeling, it’s important to notify the captain in advance.

Since the water gets very deep only a few miles away from the shore, there’s no need to go far. You can start fishing only a few minutes after you leave the marina. You’ll target Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, White and Blue Marlin, Wahoo, and all kinds of Tuna. Seeing one of these jump out of the water as you reel them in is a sight you’ll always remember!

The crew will provide you with all the necessary fishing equipment and cover your fishing license. Drinks are covered on all trips, while full day trips cover the food as well.

Get ready for some serious rod-bending action! Big Game Fishing Madeira is at your service!

Allan is a Captain, licensed since 1973 and he has been fishing for all of his life. He also used to be a commercial fisherman ... now only for sport and recreation... He likes to joke that fishing added extra 10 years to his life. He participated in lots of tournaments, mostly the ones Big Game Fishing Association makes - they organize several different destinations during the year and he won almost all destinations at least once.
