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.

Capt Alan and Ian were absolutely wonderful! I can’t recommend this company enough.  I have a special needs son, and they were exceptionally helpful and attentive.  And he even caught a 7’ white marlin! Completely worth the cost and a day in Bermuda.  The memory of a lifetime for our family!

Great time! They knew the spots to go and had the gear to land some fish.

from the welcome to the very end the captain and crew treated us a unique Bermudian experience.  They answered all of our questions and made us feel very comfortable for the entire trip.  They know their business and we caught fish.  They were at all times very professional and yet very easy to be with on a five hour tour that took us sixteen miles our from this incredible beautiful island.  The experience and knowledge of this crew gives the trip extra umph.  Go with these guys when in Bermuda.
