West End Ecology Tours

Old Bahama Bay - Bayshore Road
West End, Bahamas

The Boat of ELY is a 20 foot MAKO equipped for offshore and inshore fishing as well as eco-tours.

Captain Keith Cooper along with wife Linda Cooper own and operate the boat. Keith is a native of West End, Grand Bahama and grew up around the flats and deep sea fishing grounds. He organizes groups of up to 5 passengers maximum.

We welcome Lady Anglers who enjoy and love the pull of catching a big fish!

Guests can experience how to hand line fish and troll fish for mackerel, mutton snapper, yellow-tails and grouper.

We offer additional eco-activities for the non-fishing members in your group such as dolphin and bird watching, feeding stingrays or just relax the day away snorkeling around Sandy Cay.

    During the summer Lane Snappers are the most popular handline fish caught by Bahamians. Once we get into position on the reef or near shore the fish should be literally hopping in the boat. There are numerous reefs ranging from 10-60 feet depths where a variety of grunts, strawberry hinds, and porgy's hang out. Once you try handline fishing it becomes an addition especially when we land on the perfect spot. Our local fish are great filleted and served fried or sauteed for dinner. Water/equipment included.

The fishing around West End is the best in Grand Bahama Island. I loved fishing since I was old enough to throw a line in the water. I enjoy fishing with experts and novices who want to experience the thrill of catching fish.
