Gavito - Madeira Fishing Charters

Free cancellation
Operating out of Calheta Marina on the south coast of Madeira, the highly experienced crew of the Gavito is here to give you a fantastic nautical adventure. Join Captain Anders and Co-Captain David, as they take you fishing at some of the best spots in Madeira. Our boat Gavito, a Rodman 760 flybridge powered by two FNM 135hp engines, has been brought up to all modern standards and is constantly being upgraded in terms of fishing ability, comfort, technology, and safety. As for the fishing equipment, Gavito is loaded with the best rods and reels from Alutecnos, Shimano, Penn, and Daiwa (electrical). Gavito is equipped with both outriggers from Rupp as well as electrical downriggers from Canon. Two experienced captains are on board to help you out with everything. Tackle, bait, and lures are all included in the trip price. Water, soft drinks, and beer are complimentary as well as lunch on our full day trips. Gavito Fishing is fully licensed by the Portuguese Tourist Office and fully insured for all risks. The boat is professionally maintained by qualified engineers on a regular basis. Our Bottom Fishing trips offer fishing for Snappers, Barred Hogfish, Triggerfish, Groupers, Bream, Amberjack, Barracuda, and many other species. On top of that, you keep your catch – either take it home with you (the crew will help you clean the fish) or the crew can make plans for your fish to be prepared by one of the best restaurants in the marina. Our Big Game Fishing Trips offers trolling for Blue Marlin, Tuna and Wahoo deepening on season. The Catch and Release scheme are operated for all Billfish. Take the hassle out of booking your next fishing holiday. Book now to guarantee your spot with Gavito Fishing!
