Blkbeird Fishing Tours

Blkbeird Fishing Tours are located on the beautiful west coast of Barbados by Mango Bay Hotel in Holetown. Captain Shaun Sandiford offers fishing trips to suit all levels of experience, whether you’re an amateur, a family, or a seasoned angler. It’s possible to try trolling, free lining live bait, jigging, or bottom fishing with this versatile charter.

You will be fishing out of an 18’ fiberglass traditional fishing boat, a custom-built pirogue, out of the box in 2016. It’s spacious enough to take up to 4 anglers fishing comfortably at the same time. The boat is equipped with a 60 HP Yamaha engine, a VHF radio, life jackets (in all sizes), a live bait tank, and an ice-box.

The species you can reel in, depending on the season, include Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Trevally, Kingfish, Marlin, Sailfish, Jacks, Snapper, and Tarpon. Bottom fishing at inshore reefs is also an option and is especially fun for the kids.

You will stay within sight of the shore, fishing with a friendly local fisherman who will guide you while he fishes using the traditional method of handlining.

Blkbeird Fishing Tours will provide excellent rods and reels, mostly by Penn and Shimano. Live bait is also included – the captain will catch sardines before the trip and he will even clean your catch at the dock after the trip free of charge.

Have the boat to yourself, bring your family, or share the adventure with like-minded people – you can’t go wrong with Blkbeird Fishing Tours!

I come from a long generation of fishermen and I always had a love for catching fish. I grew up fishing and have been a captain for around 20 years. My uncles were passionate fishermen and they taught me how to fish from a very young age. My first catch was a 10-pound Tuna. I love everything about my job, that it's not an office job, every day is completely different, I get to meet new people every day, the fish are always different, and you never know what you will reel in.
