Rose Island fishing and snorkeling

Running angling trips out of Nassau, Triple D’s Aqua Adventures invites you to check out the local fishery in style.

Come on aboard with Capt. Deno, whose main priority is to get you on some fish. Expect to use techniques like trolling, big game fishing, and handline, based on the species you’re targeting. Speaking of which, you have the option of 6-hour trips, where you’ll be fishing for the likes of Barracuda, Dolphin, Jack, Grunt, Mackerel, and Grouper, depending on the specific season and the day’s weather.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 28’ Defender boat that can safely take up to 10 anglers. This boat features an ice box.

When it comes to rods, reels, and terminal tackle, everything you need is included in the price.

As for fishing licenses, everything will be taken care of by the captain so you don’t have to worry about it.  You’re welcome to keep all legal species caught during the trip.

Capt. Deno runs trips together with his first mate, who’s there to help you with whatever you may need. Tips are always appreciated for a job well done.

You’ll find free snacks, and drinks on the boat for your convenience, but you’re always welcome to pack your own drinks and snacks should you want to.

This is a children-friendly charter, so you’re welcome to bring your kids on for a fun fishing adventure.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Triple D’s Aqua Adventures.
