Rum Pirate Fishing

Bermuda is an amazing fishery for pelagic and big game blue water fishing, with the closest point of land being North Carolina, 600+ miles to our shorelines, which makes Bermuda a gem in the middle of the Atlantic.

Bermuda’s fishing grounds start at less than 30 minutes of running time, where you can catch world-class pelagics such as Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Almaco, Amberjack, Snapper, and Marlin year round! We also have two main offshore banks and sea platforms located offshore to the southwest of the island, Challenger and Argus Banks.

Our rates are very affordable, starting at $950 for half-day trips, 3/4 day trips are $1,150, and a full day at $1300. If the fish are biting, we can keep you out for added extra time at no additional charge (on agreed-upon terms). We also provide inshore fishing/reef fishing for Snapper and Triggerfish, fun for all ages, and light tackle to make it a challenge. The inshore rates start at $650 half day and $800 for a full day inshore charter.

The crew keeps the catch, and the fish of choice will be cleaned and bagged for the guests to enjoy it later. Water, soda, and beer are provided. There’s no need to buy a fishing license, just show up ready for a good time. Rods, reels, and tackle will be waiting for you on board.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 35’ Nauset Marine boat that can accommodate 6 passengers. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. A First Mate will be there to make sure your trip runs smoothly. Tipping is customary to show appreciation for their hard work.
