Fishing the Abundant Bermuda Reefs
Duration: Half Day
For fishing enthusiasts looking for adventure and action on the open waters during their holiday in Bermuda, this exciting half day reef fishing tour is for you.
Although regarded by many as one main island, Bermuda is in fact an archipelago in the North Atlantic Ocean, comprising 138 beautiful islands surrounded by over 200 miles of coral reefs. The tropical waters are abundant with sea life, including plenty of game fish, making Bermuda a popular destination for anglers. Boasting paradise pink-sand beaches and crystal clear blue waters, this beautiful, tiny country is an idyllic destination for fishing. Who knows what you’ll catch!
Your tour will begin in Bermuda’s capital at Hamilton Harbour, where you will meet your captain for the journey, Captain Mike, before climbing aboard his 32ft, fully-equipped Nova Scotia Sports Fisherman. Enjoy the relaxing boat ride across sparkling turquoise waters, taking in spectacular views of Hamilton Harbour and Bermuda’s coastline as you venture onwards to one of the island’s best fishing reefs.
Bermuda is surrounded by coral reefs, which makes it extremely popular for reef fishing, as well as deep sea fishing and shore fishing. The three major reefs include Argus Bank, which lies about 30 miles off of Bermuda's shores. The closest reef is located about five miles from the coastline. A plethora of fish can be found around all the reefs, so the likelihood of catching something is high, but the further you travel out to sea, the numbers decrease and the bigger the fish you will find. If you prefer quantity over quality, reef fishing is for you.
Prepare yourself for an exhilarating battle as you wrestle with fish of all shapes and sizes on the other end of your line before you reel them in. Using light fishing tackle, you could catch anything from Bermuda chub, grouper, jacks, grey and yellowtail snapper, bonita, little tunny, trigger fish, porgy, wahoo and many more. Half the excitement is wondering what you’ll actually catch on the day, and then savouring the taste of fresh fish once it has been prepared on board.
Fishing is a year-round sport in Bermuda, but it’s at its best from May to November. Whatever you reel in on the day, make sure you get your camera ready to capture the moment! Your captain and crew will certainly ensure that you have plenty of fun and a fantastic experience during your trip.
