You’ll be fishing aboard Chubasco VI – a 38’ Hatteras express cruiser, featuring a Marlin tower, a toilet, and a roomy fishing cockpit. Equipped with a fighting chair as well as a standard range of marine navigation and fishing electronics, it’ll put you on the fish in no time. The vessel has room for parties of up to 6 anglers.

All the fishing equipment will be ready for you on board. The crew will be happy to clean and fillet your catch if you’d like to take it home and cook a delicious meal. There’s snorkeling equipment on board as well, so you can explore the rich underwater world of the Bahamas up close!

If you’re looking for a deep sea trip on the productive offshore grounds of Nassau, a light tackle excursion on the reef, or a beaching and snorkeling combo, Capt. Mike has you covered. There’s a variety of fish to target, so expect to run into the likes of Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Tuna, and Wahoo.

The price covers the crew, fishing tackle, and snorkeling gear, as well as bottled water and ice. For an extra charge, food and drinks can be arranged on board upon request. Make sure to bring some sunscreen, so you can enjoy your time under the hot Bahamian sun.

Captain Mike Russell comes from a long line of fishermen from the Bahamas and it shows. He developed his love for the iridescent blue sea when he was a child while watching racing sailboats. He wasn't idle about it, and he became an avid sportsman, racing for the Bahamas in two Olympic games. Now he brings the same drive and passion to his fishing charter, putting his back into making sure his customers have the best experience possible. Capt. Mike is the Captain on Chubasco, the 48 ft.
