Reel Crazy Fishing Charters - 42 ft

Reel Crazy Fishing Charters Barbados introduces the largest and most luxurious boat in its fleet: the Reel Crazy Too. This spacious and well-built sportfisher has everything you need for a fishing and snorkeling vacation. Take a trip with them for a Barbados fishing charter that you will remember for years to come.

If you are looking for comfort on the water, this is where you will find it. Reel Crazy Too’s air conditioned interior will keep you cool on the hottest of days, while its comfortable salon will give you plenty of space to relax in between bites. With a kitchen, bathroom, shower, and bedrooms all on board, you might not want to come out on deck!

That is, until you see what the local fishing is like. Reel Crazy Too’s cockpit is 14 ft wide, meaning there is a lot of space to fight even the biggest - or most numerous - of fish. And with these waters being full of notorious game fish all year round, catching them is not an experience you will want to miss out on.

Reel Crazy Fishing Charters uses only the best quality equipment from brands that are respected across the globe - they furnish Shimano and Penn rods and reels as standard. Pick a pole and get ready to catch the huge variety of fish that call these waters home throughout the year. Who knows, this could be your chance to catch Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, or even a Marlin, Sailfish, or Bluefin Tuna.

Join a crew that loves fishing with a passion and has the experience to prove it. Let them show you a great day on the water fishing, snorkeling, and spending quality time with your friends and family.

Snacks are included on 6 and 8 hour trips, and lunch is provided on the 8 hour trip.

I have been fishing for years: I grew up as a spear fisherman and professional surfer and now I own and operate a successful surf school in Barbados. I started offering fishing trips as well as surfing a few years ago, partly because of the enjoyment it gives me, and also so that the guests staying at our apartments can get the taste of more adventurous activities.
