Background
Captains Ricardo Gavina and Sergio André are the owners and operators of Madeira Sight Casting. Their grandparents and fathers were anglers before them and now they carrie on the family tradition by introducing other people to the fantastic fishing Madeira has to offer. The entire crew loves fishing so much that they often stay out past the end of shorter trips because they want to keep fishing. If you're looking for a fun, dedicated team of true fishing enthusiasts, you've come to the right place.

Saltwater fly fishing for Billfish, Tunas, Mahi Mahi, Jacks, Bluefish, Wahoo etc. Spinning with stick baits and poppers for Tunas, Jacks, Wahoo, Barracudas, Bluefish etc. Bottom fishing and jigging for Amberjack, Snappers, Groupers, Triggerfish, etc. Trolling. Everything.
