Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Bahamas

According to customer reviews, Te'vaughn Adventures Charter, Captainctours, and Yellowtail Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Bahamas. Full list of top fishing charters in Bahamas.

The average price for a private 4 hour Bahamas fishing trip is $841, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $1,515 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Te'vaughn Adventures Charter, Captainctours, and Yellowtail Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Bahamas.

The most popular fish species you can target are Great Barracuda, Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), and Wahoo. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Deep Sea Fishing, and Trolling. Reef fishing, offshore fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

With pristine waters that take your breath away, well over 700 islands, and more than 50 set world fishing records, the Bahamas is the ultimate dream destination of every angler. To navigate this wealth of options, you’ll need an experienced local, and that’s where Bahamas fishing charters come into play. With a professional guide by your side, you’ll get the most out of your time on the water.

Owing to some of the clearest waters in the world, fly fishing in the Bahamas has a stellar reputation. Here, you can spend days going after Bonefish, “the Ghost of the Flats,” and leave wanting more. Want a monster on the line? Head to the sandy flats in spring and summer in search of majestic Tarpon and Permit.

Offshore anglers should go to the deep outer waters to witness the fantastic Billfish bite and take part in unforgettable Yellowfin Tuna battles. White and Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Mackerel, and Tuna species are all in the cards. Explore the reefs, and hook into a variety of Snappers,Groupers, Hogfish, Amberjack, and Triggerfish.

The sheer number of fishing tournaments is proof of just how magnificent fishing action is in the Bahamas. There are dozens of events to participate in or simply enjoy, from the Bimini Wahoo Mayhem Tournament to the Annual Blue Marlin Battle.

Whichever island you choose, chances are you’ll find plenty of Bahamas fishing charters. The trip offer is diverse as are the country’s fish! Spend several hours fly fishing the sandy flats or several days in the search of a deep sea trophy, it’s up to you. Bimini, Nassau, Freeport, Exuma, and Walker’s Cay are all a great starting point for your angling adventures.

Rules & Regulations

Most charter captains will provide fishing licenses, but it’s always a good idea to check with your guide before your trip. Also bear in mind that spearguns are banned in the Bahamas, so any spearfishing will be done exclusively with Hawaiian slings.

January

When the temperature stays in the 70ºF ballpark during January, you know you’re in a fishing paradise. This is probably the best time to go after monster Wahoo, while fly fishing for Bonefish is excellent too.

February

The Wahoo bite is still going strong. In the offshore waters, anything from Sailfish to Mahi Mahi and Grouper is biting. Feel free to sign up for a local tournament if you’re up for a challenge. It’s peak tourist season, though, so book well in advance.

March

The fishing pace is picking up all over the country due to the presence of fantastic species in the deep waters. As for inshore, Permit will join the local Bonefish population, so the stage is set for a fly adventure.

April

This is the best time to sign up for an all-star offshore experience. With White and Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and, of course, Tuna, you’ve got a ticket for the trip of a lifetime. Who knows, maybe you’ll land a new personal record!

May

There’s no time to catch a break as far as fishing in the Bahamas is concerned. Tarpon come in during the month in big numbers, so get your best flies ready. Want diversity? How about some adrenaline-pumping Tuna fishing?

June

Go out after Sailfish while they’re still there. After June, they’ll mostly be gone for the year, so make the best of it before they set sail. You can combine it with some reef action for Amberjack, Snapper, and Grouper.

July

The main attraction for a July fishing trip in the Bahamas is the impressive Marlin action. Those more interested in bottom feeders can feast on Snapper and Grouper galore, or go to the deepest waters in search of Swordfish.

August

You won’t find a lot of tourists when the weather is so hot, but the Bonefish are absolutely on fire! If you can stand the heat, you’ll be rewarded for it. Offshore, anything from Barracuda to Queen Snapper is fair game.

September

The rainy weather typical for September makes for less-than-stellar flats fishing, but the reefs will more than make up for it, with plenty of Amberjack, Barracuda, and other bottom feeders to go around.

October

This is a great time to be in the Bahamas, whether for fishing, tourism, or preferably both. Flats fishing is picking up again with an army of Bonefish at your disposal, and, in the offshore realm, you can look forward to Snapper, Grouper, and Barracuda.

November

The Wahoo bite is getting stronger as the year draws to a close – a great reason to host the annual Wahoo Smackdown. You can also head to the reefs and look for some delicious fish like Grouper and Snapper. In the flats, Bonefish are as feisty as ever.

December

Come Boxing Day, people in the Bahamas celebrate what’s known as Junkanoo. When you’re not partying, go fishing for Wahoo, or get a combo trip with a Bahamas fishing charter and chase after Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, and Grouper.

Yes. It does get hot so drink lots of water, take breaks inside and go on top and let the wind hit you so it feels like air conditioning. Great experience.

I fish a lot and the one thing I would recommend is to bring some ice to ice down your catch and keep it fresh. Its not so bad to not have ice on a 4 hour charter but I would definitely recommend bringing ice for the fish if you do a whole day charter.

Many of the charters are overpriced. $6-700 is fair for half day. $800 and up is ludicrous. If people stop overpaying the prices will moderate.

The only problem is we visited in early June which was sort of the rainy period in the Bahamas. I highly recommend the fishing there but I would go outside of May/June.

If you enjoy cruising and looking for bones, March is a good time to go. You’ll spend a lot of time looking, but when you find them, they are very concentrated. Stevie knows how to do it

The water gets deep closer to shore than you think. It is a short trip to deep water, a 4 hour trip is efficient. Reel that fish in quick, sharks will snag your fish before you know it.

The inshore reef fishing, bonefish on a fly rod and snapper with a bait caster, was a great experience. So many types of fish, but not enough time to catch them. There is also so much more to the trip than just fishing. The ecology of the area is incredible, sharks, rays tarpon, barracuda, turtles.. Not to mention the most beautiful water I've ever seen, and I have fished in many places in the world. My fun meter was pegged.

My wife and I booked this experience last minute, but it turned out to be incredibly fulfilling. The fishing was great, and we also learned traditional local fishing techniques. Captain Theo and his son enriched our experience by sharing their life stories and teaching us about the local culture and its wonders, making it more interesting and memorable. We have enjoyed the Bahamas and learned so much more about them through this experience! Thank Captain!!

Kids had a great time catching fish. Then we went to swim with turtles, got to hang out at Gilligans island, then went to a nice snorkeling spot with lots of fish. Capt Pedro and Andrew are great, kind and patient with the kids. The boat was nice as well with a cabin out of the sun and ac. I would highly recommend it for a family with small kids that just want to catch fish and have a great time.
