Hunter Charters, a fishing fleet owned and operated by Captain Paul Smith, specializes in sport fishing, light tackle and bottom fishing, as well as snorkeling in the productive waters of Nassau, Bahamas. The father-son fishing duo has been in the fishing business for over 10 years now, and pride themselves in providing their guests with a high-quality charter experience, complete with an experienced crew, well-maintained, branded fishing gear and 4 boats to choose from, depending on your specific fishing preferences.

Captain Paul Smith has over 30 years of experience fishing the Nassau waterways. ‘Hunter’, a 42 foot Hatteras (the largest vessel of his fleet) features an air conditioned cabin as well as a toilet and shower on board, and is spacious enough to accommodate as many as 8 fishermen on board. Hunter is equipped with a single fighting chair for handling larger fish, and is decked out with a conventional range of marine electronics and navigational gear, such as GPS, fish finder, radio, as well as a multimedia system for your group’s enjoyment.

Nassau is a great place to catch some of the world’s most popular game fish species. Depending on the season, Captain Paul and the First Mate will take you searching for schools of Dorados (Mahi Mahi), Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Barracuda, Snapper, and a variety of other species frequenting the area. Captain Paul will supply your group with all the fishing gear for the trip, along with artificial bait, while drinks and fishing licenses for all are included in the overall trip price.

They worked well together and helped us land a.beautiful mahi mahi.  They cleaned it and directed us to a restaurant where they cooked it to perfection.

We struck out trying for the big fish, but Keith and Jay were smart enough to recommend spending time catching smaller fish which the kids (age 14,12,9) loved.  Good time, thanks!
