Madeira Big Game Fishing Championship
Jul 4 all-day

Madeira Islands hosts this well-known event in the sport fishing world, which takes place in various parts of the world. This is an initiative directed at the sport fishing lovers, whose challenge is to capture the largest specimen of blue marlin.
The great marine biodiversity of the seas around Madeira confirms its reputation as one of the best spots of the world for big game fishing.
No other big game tournament allows teams to fish anywhere in the world for 8 hours in their time zones. The World Cup is for 1 day only, for 1 species only and with 1 winner only. There is no second place in the World Cup.
For the last two years Madeira has won the competition and since 1995 five winning fish have been caught around Madeira.
The entry fee of $5000 includes everyone on the boat.
On July 4 make sure your team is ready to win hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention bragging rights for having caught the biggest blue while competing against some of the top sport fishing teams around the globe.
