As our name suggests, Nassau’s Premier Deep Sea Fishing Fleet is THE finest fleet of fishing vessels operating out of Nassau! Clean, well-kept charter boats, matched with our Captain’s local expertise make for an unbelievable day of fishing for YOU! Come spend a day either trolling or bottom fishing with Nassau’s Premier Deep Sea Fishing Fleet and you’ll soon find out that the rumors are better than true! 

 

You’ll be cruising the crystal blue waters off the coast of Nassau aboard the First Strike. A pristine 43’ Bertram Sportfishing yacht, built to fish. She’s powered by dual 450hp Detroit engines, and is outfitted with a wide range of fishing equipment. You’ll be able to hunker down in our fighting chair when you hook up on that 400lb Blue Marlin that are known to frequent the surrounding waters of Nassau. There are also outriggers, a flybridge, GPS, fishfinder, radar, and spacious cockpit on board. We also offer snorkeling equipment if you want to jump in the tropical waters of Nassau to explore the world-famous reefs! 

 

Charter boat First Strike offers both half day fishing trips, and full day deep sea fishing packages. No matter which trip you decide to book, the cost for the day includes a First Mate who’ll handle all of the rigging and fish handling on your trip. (If you’re happy with their service, a 20% tip is much appreciated!) The price also includes use of our top of the line rods, reels, & tackle, a fishing license for everyone on board, lures, and the First Strike crew will fillet your catches at the end of the trip. 

 

Whether this is going to be your first trip, or your 100th, all are welcome aboard Nassau’s Premier Deep Sea Fishing Fleet! Our experienced, friendly crew will make sure everyone on board is comfortable and confident with the fishing techniques we’ll be using to catch an assortment of Nassau’s game fish. While trolling, you can expect to hook up on Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish, White Marlin, Mahi Mahi (Dolphin, Dorado), Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Sharks, and more! If you’d rather bottom fish, this method will yield you: Yellowfin Tuna, Mangrove Snapper, Sharks, Yellowtail Snapper, and Grouper. 

 

Spending a day on your Bahamian vacation fishing the abundant waters of Nassau will prove to be the highlight of your trip! Catch yourself fresh dinner, bucket list fish, and make memories that will last a lifetime with Nassau’s Premier Deep Sea Fishing Fleet. Our availability is limited during peak seasons, make your reservation today to guarantee you’ll be able to fish the dates that work best for your party!
