Game fishing in Barbados

Are you looking for the ultimate fishing experience in the Caribbean and Atlantic? Game fishing in Barbados is a consideration no matter your skill level. Inshore, beach or deep-sea big game fishing, you can try them all.

The turquoise waters surrounding Barbados hold over 500 fish species. You’ll have some excellent opportunities to catch Tuna, Sailfish, Barracuda, Blue and White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, or Wahoo – most appreciated by fishermen from all over the world. Barbados fishing operators will join you on a one-of-a-kind trip for deep sea fishing; they know the best fishing spots and can give you some valuable fishing tips too.

The Barbados Game Fishing Association is the official authority for game fishing and organises all of the tournaments and fishing events. Game fishing in Barbados is seasonal, and it’s particularly good from January to April, and the good news is, tourists don’t need a fishing license for sport fishing on the island.

Seeing the Nature in Action

Barbados offers more than just fishing; you can jump into the beautiful sea water and swim with tortoises or snorkel. Or, you could explore the reefs and wrecks for a fantastic experience. Leaping porpoises, sea birds, giant fish, you can enjoy nature in action.

Moreover, from your fishing boat, you can admire points of interest and learn more about the interesting history of the island. If you’re looking for a shore experience, try fishing off the beach or rocks. The perfect time for this type of activity is very early in the morning and/or at dusk. Some of the most popular spots for shore fishing are Godings Bay and the pier in Speightstown, Alleyne’s Beach in Mount Standfast, and the southwest coast near Silver Sands.
