the Bahamas

The FISHING: We run most of our trips out of Hawk’s Nest Marina & Resort located in Cat Island, Bahamas. The fishing there in April and May is EPIC! Don’t believe it? CLICK HERE to WATCH some of the action from last year. We target marlin everyday and this is one of the few places in the world where you have a shot at a Super Slam (catching 4 different billfish species in one day – blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, spearfish). Aside from the spectacular billfishing, we get a lot of action with 15-50+ pound mahi mahi and also tunas (if you can get them to the boat before the whitetips eat them).  The Bahamas, especially Cat Island, is a special place that is full of natural beauty and fishing action!!!

Trips available in the Bahamas on Exile 65.  CLICK HERE to see the BOAT.

$2600   Billfishing Day Trip (7-3:30): We primarily target billfish on this trip, but we also get plenty of action with mahi mahi (aka dolphin or dorado) for a day of action packed fishing.  Sailfish and white marlin are around late march through May and blue marlin start to show up in numbers throughout April and into May and June. Note: Breakfast and lunch are included, but you are responsible for getting your drinks and water. We can take up to 6 people.

$3500 (+ Dockage at marinas other then Hawk’s Nest Marina)  Liveaboard Trip: This trip allows you to do a bit of island hopping around the out islands of the Bahamas and chase the fish. You will live aboard Exile 65 and all food is included.  Note: You are responsible for getting your drinks and water. The typical live aboard is a 4 or 5 day live aboard trip – 5 people max not including crew (we fish everyday for marlin and other species spending some nights anchored out and bottom fishing and spending some nights in other marinas in the Southern Bahamas). We can take you all throughout the Southern Bahamas on liveaboard trips so you can experience the fishing adventure of a lifetime aboard the Exile 65.

***Rates do not include 15-20% gratuity for the crew***

Note: flights roundtrip to Cat Island, Bahamas from the Mid-Atlantic Region are around $400-700. A hotel 1 BR/1Bath room at Hawk’s Nest Marina & Resort is $200/night. They also have a beautiful rental home available for rent called the “Blue Marlin House” that easily sleeps 6 people for $500/night.
