Going fast!

Billfisher III Deep Sea Fishing is owned and operated by Capt. Ralphie White, an avid fisherman from the age of eight. Nephew of one of the most successful charter captains in Barbados, Winston “Colonel” White, he has the experience and the knowledge to get you on some amazing fish.

You will be fishing aboard a 40’ Viking sportfisher which can carry up to six guests at speeds of 20 knots, straight out to the best fishing grounds. The waters here get so deep so quickly that within minutes of leaving the dock you can be battling Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and even Marlin.

The Billfisher III has plenty of equipment to give you the upper hand against these apex pelagic predators. A full battery of marine electronics sweeps the deep while her outriggers and downriggers spread your baits far and wide to tempt in the most fish.

The boat sports a large livewell bursting with bait, as well as tuna tubes to keep bigger fish fresh when on the hunt for sea monsters. Once you find these blue water goliaths, the vessel’s three fighting chairs will let you all enjoy the battle, amid the multiple hookups which make Barbados’ deep sea fishing so special.

The Billfisher III also has plenty of luxuries to keep you comfortable on your trip. Her spacious interior boasts an enclosed bathroom complete with a shower, as well as a galley, salon, and the option of AC to help escape the hot Caribbean sun.

Out on deck, you will find a large flybridge, with plenty of room to enjoy a tasty rum punch while taking in the view. On six and eight-hour charters, you will be given a full lunch to keep your energy up, and even on shorter trips, you will be given a variety of snacks and drinks.

All tackle, bait, and licenses are provided, so all you have to do is turn up. With a variety of trip options and the choice of shared and private charters, it has never been easier to enjoy the amazing fishing that Barbados is blessed with every day of the year.

    This eight-hour Trip is a great experience, as it lets you head even further offshore, or fish both inshore and offshore with plenty of water time. During peak times (January-May) you can head out in search of FADs (we call this "raffle fishing"), where you will be able to catch a good 30 heads of Wahoo & Dorado on a good day. I have personally caught over 100 heads numerous times on my personal fishing trips.

I have been an avid fisherman from childhood, I started from the beach and then offshore. My father fished with my uncle who was a fisherman and this is probably what inspired me to fish. I grew up on the seaside and enjoyed surfing and fishing from childhood. I also customized and built small boats and outfitted them to go fishing! I started deep sea fishing in 1988 and charter fishing in 1990 for a few years, then had a real job for a few years (LOL). However, I still fished on weekends and holidays. After I got married in 1996, we had two boys, Noah and Tony, who also started fishing from a very young age. They both love fishing and they inspired me to get back into fishing for a living! This career change presented an opportunity to create a family business and spend more time together enjoying one of the best pleasures in life. Today I spend a lot of time fishing, and truly it's a way of life I get to share with everyone. I go fishing on my day off!
