Madeira is known worldwide for big game fishing, especially marlin and tuna fishing. A very short distance from the port, there are already great depths that are perfect for big game fishing. Usually right after leaving the port the lures have been launched!
The Blue Marlin is in any angler top of his wish list. This amazing predator, which can be more than 600kg heavy, visits Madeira from May to October. The prestigious Big Game tournaments in Madeira are generally held in June and July. 2015 and 2016 were very successful years for Calheta. The World Cup Blue Marlin have been won here both years.
In addition to the blue marlin, also mahi-mahi & white marlin is caught. Throughout the year, different species of tuna are caught in our waters, which include the big eye tuna, albacore and bluefin tuna (more than 150kg !!).
