As the capital of the Bahamas, Nassau is the epicenter of art, culture, nightlife, and fishing! Nassau is a real fishing hub, where avid anglers come to fulfill their biggest ambitions. Even if you’re a newcomer, don’t worry. There’s plenty of Nassau fishing charters to show you the way to the best spots.

The name of the game is deep sea fishing. It’s no surprise that the Bahamas boast some of the best big game action on the planet, and the Nassau nook of the archipelago is no different. Tuna, Marlin, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo – all the big names are prowling these productive waters practically year-round, so whenever you come, you’re in for a blast.

Reef species are the bread and butter of this fishery. They're abundant, always hungry, and on top of that, taste delicious. Snappers and Groupers are there for the taking, as well as the unique Nassau Grouper, named after its place of origin. Fly fishermen can also explore the local flats in search of Bonefish, Tarpon, and Permit.

Competitive anglers come here to attend a diverse range of fishing tournaments. The Bahamas Billfish Championship, Blue Marlin Cove Wahoo Classic, and Wahoo Smackdown are just a few of the most popular competitions to check out.

Most Nassau fishing charters offer half day and full day trips, and you should take your pick depending on what you’d like to target. Shorter jaunts mostly focus on reef fish, while longer expeditions are reserved for going after monster pelagics and Billfish.

You’ll easily find a guide in downtown Nassau and on Paradise Island.

Rules & Regulations

The boat, not the anglers, needs the permits in the Bahamas, so all registered Nassau fishing charters will have the paperwork sorted out for you. There are also bag and size limits and closed seasons for some species which your captain will advise you on.

January
Winter Wahoo fishing is at its peak, making for awesome offshore action. January is one of the driest months, and the temperature is in that sweet 70ºF range, so this is also a decent time to hit the flats for some fly fishing.
February
Wahoo are still on form, and February is the end of the annual Wahoo Smackdown, so grab one of the many Nassau offshore charters and get ready for some high-speed action.
March
Big game fishing really starts to heat up, with the first of the Marlin showing up, joined by large numbers of Amberjack and Yellowfin Tuna. The Wahoo are still biting, too, making this a great time to be offshore!
April
Permit arrive inshore, joined by the first of the Tarpon. It’s also a great time to do some bottom fishing for Grouper and Snapper and go home with a royal catch. Billfish action is fantastic!
May
May is your best chance at bagging a Bluefin and a Yellowfin Tuna on the same trip. Sailfish are still around and the Marlin are heating up too, making May irresistible offshore. Closer to land, Grouper and Snapper are biting!
June
Prime Blue Marlin season sees a number of tournaments take place, like the Abaco Beach Blue Marlin Invitational, the second half of the Bahamas Billfish Championship, and the Abaco Outboard Marlin Series.
July
Swordfish are in full swing offshore, and Snapper and Grouper are filling up the reefs. Watch the rain though, because this is peak storm season, and maybe not the best for wade fishing inshore.
August
Grouper, Snapper, and Barracuda are still biting strong on the reefs. Inshore, Bonefish are everywhere, and there are still decent numbers of Permit and Tarpon as well.
September
The last few Billfish can be caught offshore, but don’t worry, Swordfish are still at their best. Mahi Mahi are biting well, too, and the reefs are teeming with Snapper and Grouper, making for productive offshore fishing.
October
The heat and the rain finally start coming to a halt in October, and with them, so do a lot of the offshore species. Wahoo are starting to arrive, though, and there are always Bonefish inshore.
November
The rain finally leaves as Wahoo fishing picks up. November is also the beginning of the annual Wahoo Smackdown, which is worth checking out. You've also got active reefs and great flats fishing if that's more your scene.
December
If you're visiting in December, you have to check out Junkanoo. This huge festival promises colorful parades, great music, dancing, and loads of fun! Oh, and there's world-class Wahoo and Bonefishing, in case you get bored!

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.

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.

Spend a little extra and go for a bigger boat. We had a 55 foot boat for 6 of us and I'm glad we went bigger instead of less expensive

Pretty damn great out with Captain Frank and Swanky today. Can’t say enough about those guys. They worked hard to put us on the fish. Baits were constantly refreshed. Swank was great working with the first-timer teenage sons. Would definitely go out again with those guys.

Captain Ted and his assistant gave us great fishing experience in Bahamas. My family 3 of us caught 12-13 fish and took big 4 to the restaurant nearby after fishing for great dinner. Ted took very good care of my son during the fishing trip and Ted took us a secret spot for wild turtles at the end of the trip. Thanks Ted.

Deno was fantastic and knew to take us to swim with the sea turtles before the area got too busy….we had the sea turtles to our selves!!! He also went over and beyond and let us have the boat a little longer because we were running behind and he really wanted our kids to snorkel more. He also dropped us off at Atlantis instead of back at the original dock which was very helpful!! It was a wonderful day Thank you Deno❤️

You’ll be hard pressed to find a cleaner more well kept boat. We had nice day on the water. We caught some Barracuda and Mahi Mahi. Missed the Wahoo but that’s fishing. Overall, easy to book, communication leading up to the trip was timely and Captain Teddy did his best to get us hooked up on some fish.

Capitan Ted was very professional and knowledgeable. Very patient with kids and teens as he would teach them a new fishing technique- the Bahamina style fishing. The kids had tons of fun and caught us dinner. We took the fish to the poop deck and had a cook for dinner. It was delicious. Capitan T was very flexible and allowed us time to snorkel and see turtles. We have done fishing on the Capri, Miami, St John and this maybe the best experience yet! Would definitely recommend.
