Fishing Charters — The Bahamas is well known as one of the great Sportfishing destinations of the world. We have calm water most of the year and very little travel time to get to the fishing grounds. Less than a quarter mile off Nassau and Atlantis’s Paradise Island you are deep-sea fishing. On the north side of Nassau and Paradise Island, you are in 1,000 feet of water 15 minutes from the dock and 4 miles off you are fishing in 6,000 feet of water. You’ll discover that sport fishing off Nassau is unlike any other big-game fishing experience you’ve ever had.
Jetskiing, parasailing, kite-boarding, paddle boarding — Test your skills in the bay by the house!!

Explore forests, wetlands, seashore, fresh water ponds, nature reserves to find your target birds or just enjoy visiting various habitat areas. Ecotour guide, binoculars, refreshments supplied.
