Experience the Bahamas in true local style with Captainctours. From Lobster diving to deep sea fishing in the heart of the Atlantic, you’ll have the chance to really get to know the crystal clear waters, fishing to your heart’s content and landing plenty of delicious creatures to take back to shore.

Who better to take you out than a local captain? Captain Charles King is just that. A lifelong fisherman, he’s worked on boats most of his adult life. He finally decided, in 2012, to get his own captain’s license, and is now able to spend his time doing what he loves most. He claims there’s nothing better than sharing the experience with others, and hopes to let you see why he loves fishing here so much.

Come aboard the 26’ Boston Whaler center console and discover the beauty of the Bahamas. Up to 10 guests are welcome to make yourselves at home on board the spacious deck. You’ll have 360-degree views throughout the day, feasting your eyes on the crystal clear waters all around you and getting your fish on.

Sit back and troll the open waters, bottom fish the reefs, or hop in and go diving for delicious Lobster, there’s no end to the fun you can have. Target beauties such as Snappers, Groupers, Amberjack, and even Tuna, and you’ll be sure to head back to shore with a delicious treat for lunch and dinner.

After an intense few hours of fishing, you’ll even have the chance of cooling off by going snorkeling, just let Capt. Charles know in advance so he can provide the gear. At the end of your trip, he’ll clean your catch for you and take you to a beachside restaurant, so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor right away.

What more could you want from a fishing adventure in the Bahamas? Captainctours promises the whole package, so come aboard and make some lifelong memories!
