Challenger Charter Fishing Bermuda

Wreck Rd
Sandys, Bermuda

Capt Alan and Ian would love to take you on an adventure of a life time.
In Bermuda the name Challenger stands out in the Deep Sea Fishing community.  Many a thousand-pound blue marlin, caught over the last few years, has been aboard Challenger.  Whether it is a day hunting for blue marlin or trolling for wahoo and tuna….. you won’t be disappointed.

The father and son team of Alan and Ian Card operate the 40’ Gamefisherman “Challenger”.  This fast (30 knots), clean, and well-kept vessel is fully equipped with twin diesel engines; tuna tower and large cockpit with fighting chair.

Capt. Alan has over 40 years experience in the charter boat business. Ian has 21 years in the business. 

Winners of the 1993 Blue Marlin World Cup Championship and the Inaugural Bermuda Big Game Classic 2001.Capt.

We are all about a good day’s fishing!
