You can try everything you like. The captains always will ask you what you want to fish and how. I have chosen trolling but there is also bottom fishing,... We rent an appartement near the harbour. So it was an easy walk in the morning (5 minutes)to the boat. And as you leave very early in the morning you can get breakfast at the harbour promenade. There is a nice Cafe which was open at 8 when I arrived.

Not to worry, the people from Madeira are so helpful. Just take sun cream and a coat as it can get cold at night.

Bottom-fishing out by the islands is awesome, super-rich with fish. Smaller fish but still very fun.

My 14 year old son and I went on his first fishing trip this Christmas and it was a huge success. Our Captain certainly knew where the fish were and are we managed to lad a 45 - 50kg. Amberjack,...but it took a while. We lost another one about the same size but also caught a 5kg. Red Snapper which we cooked for lunch - DELICIOUS !!. I would highly recommend this trip for both experienced fisherman as well as beginners. ENJOY !!!

5 stars to the crew. They made for a wonderful day and the icing on the cake was they spotted a wounded sea turtle and rescued and dropped off on way back in at the local marine biology center to rehabilitate her. Highly recommended!

Whilst this is nothing against the captain a think its more the design of the boat. as the captain was stood on top driving the mate never said a word. There was not much conversation able to happen where its nice to chat to the captain about fish n fishing even the area. although that's nothing against the trip as that was excellent

We had a number of younger children on the trip and the team organised a lovely day doing some fun bottom fishing suitable for all ages. The boat and equipment are top of the line and I hope to go sometime in the future of some big game fishing with them.

Belle expérience. Les 2 gamins ont pris du poisson. Sortie de 4 heures un peu courte car intègre le temps de déplacement vers les lieux de pêche et retour au port. Le capitaine connaît bien les spots et s’adapte à la météo pour trouver le poisson. Ça parle peu français mais là com’ fonctionne entre passionnés !

As we all know , with fishing you are not guaranteed to catch. But you need a crew determined to help. We caught 4 red snapper whilst bottom fishing but no luck trawling. The captain and crew worked tirelessly to help , changing lures and Locations. And that is what you need whilst sea fishing. Hopefully back soon 😃

The crew wre very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the fish weren't playing ball this time, but the crew never gave up, trying different lures and areas. That's fishing.

This was an amazing experience! Started on the boat with a few drinks and met new friends from around the world (Canada, UK, Holland and North Korea). Captain said we are going after the big fish. After 1.5 hours, we caught not one but two 200lbs tunas. Never I was expecting this. Beginners luck maybe.The excitement of realling in was just amazing. I think the captain was as happy as we were. Got help and tips from the captain and crew. I recommend this adventure to everyone.

Boat crew equipment food all excellent. I prefer trolling for preditors as we did in the morning. But bottom fishing although produces more results in the afternoon was not for me. The mackerel fly fishing was good fun for all. Thanks Jose
