The world-renowned fishery off the coast of Barbados needs no introduction. Welcome to Reel Crazy Charters, the premier Charter Service operating out of Bridgetown, Barbados. To be specific, we’re docked in the Bridgetown Careenage. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing day of bottom fishing over the reefs, or wanting a high-speed trolling trip, we’ll be able to put you on an unbelievable Barbados fishing charter trip. 

 

 Get ready to fish on our top of the line 42ft Bertram powered by dual 450hp Cummins engines. Reel Crazy Charters is outfitted with a variety of fishing equipment to help load up your coolers with fresh fillets. Our outriggers will help us troll multiple lines at once, double hook ups are common! You’ll also find down riggers, Ray Marine and Furono Chart Plotters, Ray Marine Auto Pilot, and we have 3 fighting chairs on board. Trust us… When you hook up on that 400lb Blue Marlin you’ll be glad we have them! For comfort features, our cabin is fully air-conditioned. Inside you’ll also find a kitchen, shower, bathroom, and 2 bedrooms. 

 

Here at Reel Crazy Charters, we have a wide variety of trip options for you to choose from. Quick afternoon trips, morning trips, full day trips, you name it! For families and kids, our most popular trip is the “Grill your catch” trip. We’ll fish the inshore reefs for the first three hours to load up on fish, then anchor up so you can swim with sea turtles and explore shipwrecks while we cook your catch! We’ll provide transport, drinks, and also snacks.

 

Barbados experiences year-round fishing opportunities, but our most popular months are from September-June. Wahoo is a fan favorite, as it’s one of the tastiest fish in the ocean. Wahoo are caught frequently 12 months out of the year! For anglers looking to cross one of the 3 billfish found off the coast of Barbados, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, and Sailfish are caught most consistently from December-April. January-April is also the top months to target big bull Mahi Mahi… Yum! But no matter which trip you decide to book, you have the chance at catching the following species: Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, Yellowfin Tuna, Yellowtail, Spanish Mackerel, and more!

Whether you’re snorkeling with the local sea turtles while we grill up your fresh catches, or are hunkered down in our fighting chairs testing your skills against Blue Marlin and White Marlin, we’re confident we’ll be able to put you on the fishing trip of a lifetime! Many great memories await you, book today!
