Hunter Charters – 38’

Enjoy your day on the beautiful blue Bahamian waters off the coast of Nassau with Hunter Charters! Join Captain Paul Smith who’ll take you on a memorable adventure. He’s been fishing in this area for over 30 years, having spent the last 10 growing his fishing charter fleet, that is now comprised of 4 vessels.

His boat, the Mornin’ Ride, is a 38’ Hatteras offshore sportfishing trip, with a capacity of 7 anglers per trip. It is air-conditioned and features a toilet and shower on board. There’s also a single fighting chair among the boat’s amenities, to help you maximize your chances of reeling in any larger fish that may strike your bait.

Capt. Paul will provide you with all the fishing equipment your group requires, along with artificial bait for the trip. After a productive day of fishing these abundant waters, he’ll be happy to clean and fillet your catch so you can take it home for a nice dinner.

Depending on the season, you’ll troll the deep waters and run the reefs in pursuit of a variety of species that call these waters their home. Expect to run into creatures like Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Barracuda, Snapper, Grouper, Marlin, and Sailfish.

Feel free to take your whole family on a great adventure. Pack your kids and teach them all about fishing on a trip they’ll always remember! Make sure to bring some food and drinks to stay refreshed throughout the day, as well as some sun protection so you can relax.

Explore the turquoise waters of the Bahamas, and make some lifelong memories with Hunter Charters!
