Hunter Charters - 48' Ocean Yacht

If you’re dreaming of battling some of the most prestigious fish you can find in the world, in one of the best fishing spots in the world, all while surrounded by fantastic comfort – you’re dreaming of Hunter Charters in the Bahamas.

Their vessel is a 48’ convertible Ocean Yacht, filled to the brim with amenities for comfort and serious sportfishing. She can easily hold you and 9 of your fishing buddies without tangling lines. Your focus can easily stay on the fish as you’ve got an A/C cabin available to cool off under the hot Bahamian sun. A shower, kitchen, and bed are there to help you rest up between epic fights with the big boys in the blue waters.

Hunter Charters have spared no expense to make sure you have all the tools you need to catch that dream fish. A fighting chair will give you added support in the battle, while the first mate assists you in any way you need. Outriggers extend your reach when trolling for Marlins, Sailfish, Wahoos, or Barracudas.

The fish that live in the waters around the Bahamas are known worldwide for their size and quality. You’ll get the chance to fight some of the most wanted beasts like Blue and White Marlins, Yellowfin and Skipjack Tunas, as well as the speeding Sailfish. Even if you aren’t a fan of trolling, this charter can offer you a lot of excitement, as you will target Yellowtail and Mutton Snappers, Amberjacks, Blacktip Sharks, Mahi Mahi, or other species. The light tackle used makes for an amazing battle with every fish and every one reeled in is a proper achievement.

Catch and release is mandatory for Sharks and Billfish. You get to keep the fish you want to eat, with the crew keeping the rest.

So, if you feel like going to one of the most beautiful fishing spots in the world and battling a variety of exciting and gorgeous fish, join Hunter Charters for a memorable fishing adventure!
