Guaranteed Fish… No Splash, No Cash* There are not many Sport Fishing Charter Captains who will make this offer for their entire Nassau/Paradise Island Charter Fishing Fleet. This is the commitment of Capt. Mike Russell, owner and operator, a seventh generation Bahamian with over 32 years of charter fishing experience. Our fleet consists of four boats, all fully equipped for Sport fishing, Snorkeling, Sightseeing and Beaching. Although we specialize in deep-sea fishing for Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi-mahi and Marlin or light tackle trolling over the reefs and wrecks for the reef species, our captains know all the great reefs and spots for snorkeling including Turtle Island where you can swim and snorkel with turtles in the wild. Whether you're a first time angler or an experienced fishing enthusiast, our goal is to provide a fishing experience that exceeds your expectations. *Guaranteed fish applies to full day "fishing only charters” and does not guarantee a particular species of fish.

Depends on which boat you choose. Around $600 is what we paid. You can have up to 5 people for that.
