Fishing in Barbados – Blue Marlin

Fishing in Barbados is located in Bridgetown and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters. Capt. Johanna and her crew love fishing, diving, being out in the ocean, and having a great time. The captain’s boat was a passion project for her, with her dad customizing it completely. It’s great for fishing all day or doing a cruise for the whole family – mum, dad, and kids can all come and have some fun!

Capt. Johanna will do her best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 4 to 8-hour trips, mainly fishing for Wahoo, Dolphin, Marlin, Barracuda, Sailfish, and Amberjack, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips, you can expect to use techniques such as bottom fishing, trolling, big game fishing, handline, jigging, and spearfishing.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 36’ Thomas Herbert boat that can safely take up to 8 anglers. This boat comes with a toilet, an ice-box, and a fighting chair. It’s comfortable and provides super shade.

All rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Please make sure to buy a valid fishing license ahead of time. The crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home at the end of the trip. The boat will be supplied with snacks and drinks for your pleasure, be sure to let the captain know if you have any questions or want to bring your own.

Capt. Johanna has been spearfishing for many years but became a freediving instructor about three years ago. That's also when she started teaching people to spearfish and leading blue water spearfishing tours as well. She used to be a photographer and she still enjoys doing a lot of underwater photography and video. It took a lot of guts and effort to change her whole life around but she couldn’t be happier now and it never feels like work for her. Everyone who comes on a tour with her and the crew gets the full experience and you all have a great time together. The captain says it’s not just an experience, it’s a lifestyle. This is a great way to spear your own dinner and practice selective fishing methods. The crew's looking forward to getting in the water with you soon!
