High Seas Charters - Ocean Hunter

The Careenage
Bridgetown, Barbados

High Seas Charters is owned and operated by Capt. Robbie Atwell, a local of Barbados who has been fishing the local waters since the age of 5 has since competed successfully in many local fishing tournaments. He encourages you to come on a charter with him and promises that although you may come as a guest, you will leave as a friend.

You will be fishing aboard the Ocean Hunter, a 42’ custom-built sportfishing boat that can easily accommodate up to six anglers. The boat has a spacious cockpit and is equipped with all you need to catch some massive fish, with a range of marine electronics, a fighting chair and outriggers for effective trolling.

Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned pro. High Seas Charters will work with you to build the perfect fishing trip. Hardcore deep sea addicts will be taken out to the best waters as fast as possible to give you the maximum fishing time, while family groups will be taken to the more sheltered side of the island to enjoy some awesome hookups without the choppy waters.

Capt. Robbie prides himself on his strong customer focus. From adapting his trips to suit your needs to the little things like making sure you have food and drinks to keep you going, he does everything he can to make your trip perfect. So climb aboard and get ready for a day you will never forget!
