Surrounded by white sandy beaches and crystal clear water that the Bahamas offer, you will be welcomed aboard a luxurious yacht and pampered for the duration of your trip. The first class service is provided by Captains Eddie and Kirk, and an experienced certified crew who love to see smiles of satisfaction on their guests’ faces. They will make sure you have everything you need and take you to the best fishing spots.

This beauty is powered by two 620HP Detroit Diesel engines with a maximum cruising speed of 22 knots. The yacht comprises 3 state rooms with beds, a kitchen complete with a refrigerator and freezer, a toilet and is air conditioned for your comfort. It also has a GPS, a fishfinder ideal for locating fish, and life jackets for your safety. You will also be able to use a fighting chair, fly fishing, snorkeling equipment, as well as the flybridge. An icebox is readily available for fish you will catch, in order to preserve their freshness until you return to shore.

First Strike Charters will take you on nearshore or offshore trips, depending on the package you chose and the fish you want to catch. On the nearshore trips you can catch Goliath Grouper, King Mackerel, Red Snapper and Wahoo among others available in the local waters. If you are after prize game fish such as Mahi Mahi, Tunas and Blue Marlin, you can go on an offshore deep sea fishing adventure. The crew will help you with the techniques and with landing the big ones aboard, depending on the fish regulations and seasonality. You will be provided with good quality rods, reels and tackle, as well as lures in order to attract and catch the fish of your dreams. The crew will serve drinks.
