Madeira Marlin - Balancal

Madeira Island has some of the very best big game fishing in the entire Atlantic. The area is the go-to place for landing huge Blue Marlin, and the Balancal crew will do everything they can to help you catch one.

Captain Anibal Fernandes is a highly experienced angler from Madeira who built his experience fishing commercially in South Africa for two decades before returning home and becoming the skipper of a boat there. Over his time working on different charters, he has landed or helped land a total of 20 granders, a reputation which speaks for itself and an indication of how hard he will work to make sure you land the catch of a lifetime.

He’ll take you after not only the famous Blue Marlin, but White Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi, and many other big game species. You’ll be exploring the most productive deep sea fishing spots, and the captain will show you all the tips and tricks for landing your personal best.

The 33’ Lochin 333 flybridge sportfisherman you will be fishing on is a superb fishing machine, fully equipped with GPS, fighting chair, restroom, and all the gear you will need for a variety of fishing techniques, including bottom fishing and trolling.

Marlins are strictly catch and release, but you’ll get to keep everything else (clients usually share Tuna with the crew). If you decide to keep your fish, the first mate will fillet it for your convenience. Balancal will cover all the fishing gear and bait you’ll need for a top day on the water, along with food and drinks.

Even though the captain loves having little ones on board, fighting Marlin can be very intense, so he recommends not bringing infants.
