H2O

It’s been said that the tropical charm of the waters surrounding Antigua and Barbuda is irresistible to both visitors and locals. This definitely extends to the species that live below, too! Captain Frank Hart is a native Antiguan who knows this impressive fishery better than most. He invites you to come aboard H20 charters and experience the fantastic sport-fishing these islands have to offer.

Whether you’re looking to travel to where the big game fish hang out, or would prefer to cruise calmer inshore waters, H20 charters has a whole host of adventures for you. Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome on board, and your captain is happy to work with you to create your dream experience. No matter where you choose to go, you’ll get the chance to battle some seriously impressive species!

You’ll be heading out on your adventure in a versatile 26’ ProKat walkaround vessel. She’s perfect for targeting the bays, creeks, and flats of this area, and can easily handle some offshore fishing action, too. She can comfortably accommodate up to 4 anglers, and you’ll all be able to fish at the same time. Onboard you’ll find top-notch safety and navigational equipment, as well as a fully-enclosed private toilet. There are outriggers for maximum trolling, too.

As for the species you’ll be targeting, get ready to face up to some hard-fighters! If you head to inshore waters, you’ll come up against Tarpon, Snook, Permit, and Bonefish. Get ready to try out your best fly fishing and spinning techniques. Heading offshore? You’ll get to battle big game fish such as Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, and whatever else is biting. 

Your captain will provide you with top-quality rods and reels, and you’ll be reeling in your own live bait. Fly fishing equipment is included, but feel free to bring your own lucky gear along with you. Life jackets are available for all ages. Come aboard H20 and explore these irresistible waters through the eyes of a local!

Captain Nicholas Hart runs these top-class charters with his father, Captain Frank Hart. Capt. Frank has been fishing for 50 years, and working as a captain for 20 of these years. What started off as a love and passion for angling and just needing to be out on the water soon turned into helping other people fulfil their dreams of landing a fish on their own. He has some serious bragging rights, too - in 2012 he won the Antigua Barbuda Marlin Classic on his champion boat, the Overdraft. In 2007, he tagged and released the most Marlin in this area. In 2004, he took part in the Saint Marten Billfish tournament and came in second place. Who could be better equipped to introduce you to the beautiful, bountiful waters of Antigua and Barbuda?
