Deep Sea Fishing in Barbados

Looking to hook some world-famous fish in a location best described as “paradise”? Then deep sea fishing in Barbados needs to go straight to the top of your list. Whether you want to land a Billfish grand slam, or explore bottomless reef-filled waters minutes from shore, you’ll find your perfect angling adventure here. Even better? After you’ve hooked your dream catch, you can relax on one of the island’s picturesque beaches with a sense of pride – and a local cocktail in hand, of course!
 

What to Expect

It may only be a small island, but Barbados offers visitors a truly exciting deep sea fishing experience. Rather than having to travel for miles to battle hard-fighting big game fish, you’ll be able to plumb deep waters within less than a mile from any part of the shore.
 
The best way to experience these waters is alongside an experienced captain. You’ll find fishing opportunities all over the island, but the majority of charter boats depart from its capital, Bridgetown. This city is full of local captains well-versed in customizing their trips to suit everyone, from total newbies to expert-level anglers. You don’t have to be a seasoned fisherman to battle these beasts of the deep! 
 
Speaking of which, the most common catches here are Mahi Mahi and Wahoo, which is locally known as “Kingfish.” Newer anglers will be able to come face-to-gills with these prized species on half day trips, a perfect option if you’re just discovering your sea legs. It’s also common for captains to offer combination trips, where you’ll be able to spend part of your day casting off before jumping into the crystal clear waters for a swim.
 
If you’re looking for a hardcore adventure that’ll test your skills and endurance, then there’s only one thing for it: a full day of Billfish hunting. A longer trip allows you to explore a wider variety of hotspots, where Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, and Longbill Spearfish all lurk. If you’re looking for a unique experience, speak to your captain about handlining using live bait – this is a local deep sea fishing technique that’s not for the faint of heart, but provides awesome results!
 

How to Prepare

You don’t need a fishing license to explore the waters around Barbados, but something you should speak to your captain about is what will happen to your catch. Unlike a lot of fisheries, Billfish can be kept here. If you’d like to release your fish, make sure you discuss this before your trip. Most captains will happily let you return these majestic creatures back to the water!
 
The majority of charters here will make sure you’re decked out with all the fishing gear you need for an exciting adventure, as well as plenty of snacks and drinks. Just bring along plenty of energy and fighting spirit, and get ready to discover what the deep sea fishing in Barbados has to offer!

Big Game fishing is Seasonal so please be aware of which fish are running at the time you book. This is the same anywhere you travel so do not expect miracles off-season. Excellent place to experience some tight lines no matter what your experience level. What are you waiting for ? :)

Know the seasonal patterns for fish in the region. June is at the tail end of a season, so it can be hit and miss. But if looking for deep sea fishing, be loose in June on what you may be targeting

I would recommend fishing bridgetown! Set your expectations appropriately for fishing, it's called fishing not catching.
