Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Bermuda

According to customer reviews, Atlantic Spray Charters, Sea Wolfe Sportfishing, and Attitude Adjustment Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Bermuda. Full list of top fishing charters in Bermuda.

The average price for a private 4 hour Bermuda fishing trip is $999, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $1,531 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Atlantic Spray Charters, Sea Wolfe Sportfishing, and Attitude Adjustment Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Bermuda.

The most popular fish species you can target are Great Barracuda, Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), and Blue Marlin. Top fishing techniques include Deep Sea Fishing, Heavy Tackle, and Trolling. Offshore fishing, reef fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

It’s easy to see where Bermuda got its reputation for world class tournament fishing. This island nation located about 600 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras, NC is a small tropical paradise that one could easily mistake for the Caribbean. You’ll find astonishing variety here, from crystal clear flats and pink sandy beaches to coral reefs and the deep sea beyond. Anglers of all skill levels can make the most of these diverse waters, which is exactly what Bermuda fishing charters are all about. Whether you’re a seasoned tournament angler or just a beginner, you may be the next person to hook into a record-breaking catch here!

Known For

Bermuda is known for spectacular big game fishing, which has everything to do with the local topography. The islands of Bermuda are located on top of a large reef platform. Just beyond this platform, the seafloor plummets and anglers find themselves surrounded by the deep waters of the Atlantic. Due to the close proximity of the Gulf Stream, the water temperature here never drops below 62°F, allowing many big game fish to swim in the area comfortably year-round. Anglers start fishing for these beasts in April, as soon as the weather promises smooth sailing.

Deep Sea Fishing

You can enjoy excellent deep sea fishing on all sides of the island, including the southern and northern fringes of the reef as well as the infamous “Bermuda Edge” to the east. To experience the ultimate deep sea fishing Bermuda is known for, your time is best spent on Challenger Bank and Argus Bank to the southwest. Bottom fishing here is a chance to hook into a wide variety of Jacks and large Barracuda, while trolling the waters between these banks and the Bermuda Edge will bring you face-to-bill with Blue Marlin of enormous proportions (300 lb on average, and occasional catches over 1,000 lb). With fish of this caliber swimming around, it’s no wonder why Bermuda has become a renowned tournament fishing destination!

As impressive as the Blue Marlin are in these waters, the Tuna and Wahoo fishing in Bermuda may be even better. Both species are available year-round, with peak seasons in summer. Just before autumn, anglers get the added bonus of False Albacore for unbeatable light tackle action.

If that’s not enough to satisfy your need for speed, you can enjoy chasing Mahi Mahi, Rainbow Runner, Bonito, and large Sharks. There’s always a chance you could hook into White Marlin, Sailfish, Spearfish, or Swordfish around here, too.

Reef Fishing

Fishing in Bermuda can be equally rewarding close to shore. Shallow waters over the reefs hold Lane Snapper (locally known as Whitewater Snapper) and Triggerfish (Turbot). These fish aren’t large, but they swim in schools and you can fill your cooler in a few short hours. If you’re fishing purely for sport, you’ll enjoy great light tackle action while targeting Bermuda Chub.

Coral areas in deeper water host a wider variety of fish, including Amberjack, False Albacore, Yellowtail Snapper, Porgy, Wrasse, various Groupers, Almaco Jack, and “Gwelly” (a little-known relative of the Jack).

Flats Fishing

Between April and October, local flats hold some of the world’s largest Bonefish. Whether you choose to target them on spinning or fly fishing gear, you can look forward to catching some potential record-breakers. The odd Tarpon and Permit also make an appearance here, giving lucky anglers the chance to land a Grand Slam.

Shore Fishing

Casting lines from docks, jetties, and beaches around Bermuda will bring you anything from Gray and Yellowtail Snapper to Grunts, Bermuda Chub, Barracuda, and Bonefish. You may also catch a couple of lesser-known fish such as Sennet and Palometa, small relatives of the Barracuda and Pompano.

Bermuda Fishing Techniques

Most deep sea fishing in Bermuda involves trolling. At the height of summer, local anglers switch to chumming for Tuna on the banks and along the drop off. Chumming is often combined with kite fishing, which leads to Yellowfin Tuna, record-breaking Blackfin Tuna, and the occasional Marlin. Working the bottom at the same time will produce large Amberjack (100+ lb) and Almaco Jacks.

Chumming and bottom fishing on the reefs closer to shore will bring you Amberjack, False Albacore, Yellowtail Snapper, Porgy, Triggerfish, Grouper, and more.

Light tackle and fly fishing enthusiasts can test their skills anywhere in Bermuda, from the flats to the deep sea. Popular Bermuda fly fishing targets include Bonefish, Barracuda, Jacks, and Tuna.

Need to Know

Getting There

Traveling anglers can catch daily flights to Bermuda from Canada, the U.S., and the U.K.. This destination is just a 90-minute flight from New York City, and less than 3 hours from many significant travel hubs on the East Coast. The flight from London to Bermuda is about 7 hours long. When you arrive, you’ll find charter boats for hire all across the main islands.

Regulations

You are free to fish in Bermuda without a permit when fishing aboard a licensed fishing charter. Anglers casting lines from shore are also allowed to fish without a permit.

Most fish species are legal to keep in Bermuda, but many of them have size and bag limits. It’s common practice to release a number of gamefish, including Bonefish and Marlin. Be sure to discuss local regulations and your intentions with the captain ahead of time so you know what to expect when it comes to keeping any fish you catch.

Budget

Half day trips can take you to the reefs or just offshore in search of Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, and various bottom fish. These trips last around 4 hours and cost $900–$1,150. Full day Bermuda fishing charters will take you farther from shore, with a chance to catch Wahoo, Tuna, and other big game pelagics. These trips are recommended for anglers set on landing a Marlin. Prices range from $1,100–$1,600.

Serious anglers looking to partake in the Bermuda tournament fishing experience can book specialized tournament charters. These usually last 8–10 hours and focus on targeting Marlin for catch-and-release. Tournament charters cost anywhere from $1,500–$3,500 to account for fuel, boat maintenance, and top-of-the-line tackle.

As you can see, there’s more to these waters than meets the eye, and anglers are still discovering the full extent of Bermuda’s fishery. Come cast your line for a chance to experience world class fishing in one of the most beautiful destinations on Earth!

January

The weather in Bermuda can be hostile and unpredictable early in the year, causing many charter boats shut down until spring. Anglers fishing the flats can catch Bonefish, Jacks, and more.

February

Bermuda’s off season continues in February. Few anglers will venture offshore this month, but those who do may be lucky enough to catch Wahoo and Yellowfin Tuna.

March

You can still expect winter fishing conditions in March, but if spring comes early this year, your luck may change very soon. Cast your line in the right place at the right time, and you never know what you’ll get!

April

Bermuda’s fishing season officially opens this month, and it’s a spectacular time to be on the water. Wahoo and Tuna are already biting hard offshore, and Marlin aren’t far behind them.

May

Early summer is one of the best times to fish for White Marlin in Bermuda. Large Blue Marlin are also appearing, and anglers are hooking into Wahoo and Yellowfin Tuna ranging from 20-100 lb in size.

June

Blue Marlin are at their peak, making this one of the best months for billfishing in Bermuda. Trolling will also bring you Mahi Mahi, Rainbow Runner, large Sharks, and of course Wahoo and Tuna. 

July

July marks the Bermuda Triple Crown Billfish Championship! This open tournament series includes the Bermuda Billfish Blast, Bermuda Big Game Classic, and the Sea Horse Anglers Club Billfish Tournament.

August

Bermuda’s deep sea fishing season rolls on, with massive hook-ups happening left and right. You’ll see many anglers chumming and drift fishing along the banks and the drop off for Tuna.

September

A second wave of Wahoo comes through in September, accompanied by an influx in False Albacore. The result is fantastic light tackle action! Meanwhile, warm nights provide some of the most productive reef fishing.

October

You can still expect excellent Wahoo and Tuna fishing in October. The Blue Marlin you see at this time of year may be smaller than before, but there are more of them.

November

Many species are still giving anglers a run for their money as late as November. Try working the bottom as you troll offshore and see what exotic Grouper species you can scrounge up!

December

As winter gets underway, the sea starts becoming unreliable. Weather permitting, you can still enjoy great fishing for Wahoo and Tuna offshore, or try fishing the flats for Bonefish, Jacks, and small Snappers.

Captain Sloan was great! Accommodated our last minute booking and was flexible on timing to coincide with our cruise schedule. Brother Royce was gallant with the buckets when a few of us were sick (rough sea day). Captain worked hard to get us on the fish, husband and son caught three tunas! All in a great experience, highly recommended!! Don't waste money on a shore excursion, get the real thing!

Capt Sloan and his first mate Johnny, are top notch! I have been with many crews and they are at the top of the list. From putting you on multiple species of fish you are targeting, having a great attitude, excellent social skills, and making sure we are comfortable and all our needs are met; look no further in Bermuda!

Russell and Josh we're the perfect hosts aboard Sea Wolfe. We had perfect weather and while we were unlucky with the fishing (we still got a Wahoo and a Tuna though) they both worked VERY hard to get as many bites as possible and make sure we had an amazing day. On another day, we'd have had a dozen fish! Thanks both for a fantastic experience.

Great first deep sea experience with Atlantic Spray Charters! Captain Sloan was a Wahoo wizard and Johnny helped us handle the poles and fish. We trolled for a while and stopped to chum the water for tuna. Captain Sloan even let us stay out an extra hour since we were getting so many bites! We didn’t just catch Wahoo, nabbed tuna and rainbow runner as well. A+ experience, will be back again!

Captain Sloan and mates Johnny and Phoenix delivered a great fishing experience for us. The boat is Tenacious but that is also the spirit of the crew. Stayed on it till they got us into some nice fish. My wife Shannon thoroughly enjoyed the trip. They say Bermuda is even better from a boat and I would agree. Just beautiful! Thank you Captain Sloan for a great memory and some very nice fish! Sean and Shannon

Captain Russell and his First Mate Max provided us exactly the experience we were looking for. Great fishing, great tour guides and just a great day on the water. I’d recommend for beginners and experienced anglers alike. These guys are legit. Didn’t hurt that we pulled in a couple of nice Wahoos. Will be back for the Marlin!

We took a chance! It was my 1st time using Fishing Booker and my 1st time chartering outside the United States. Both worked out perfectly! I highly recommend Sea Wolfe Sportfishing! Although we were early in the season, Captain Russell and his Deckhand Daniel made sure we had alot of fun. The boat is clean and well kept and we all felt safe on the open water. It was a great experience, one we will always remember. Michelle Gregoire Woodstock Valley, CT USA.

We had a great time. Definitely recommend this Charter. You will not be disappointed. Captain Sloan is very knowledgeable about the Island and it's waters. He and his mate Kirk did everything they could to ensure we had a great time and were well taken care of. Capt. Sloan even filleted up one of the Tuna's for us to take home. Absolutely an amazing day and great time.

We did an afternoon trip with Sloan and his mate. We are staying at Tucker's point so it was extremely convenient to meet him in St Georges. Only a 10 minute ride out to of the harbor to the fishing grounds. We caught some nice wahoo and tuna. Great afternoon, very friendly and knowledgeable crew, excellent gear and fishing boat. Also got some nice sushi grade tune to take back to our time share.
