Predator Sportfishing is a small Barbadian family owned and operated business. We started offering fishing charters in Barbados over twelve years ago on a Bertram 25 then moved on to a Blackfin 25. The seaworthiness and comfort of Blackfin yachts impressed us and now we operate a thirty-two foot (loa) Blackfin with reliable twin 225 Hp diesel power. She's very comfortable with lots of shaded area, a private bathroom, a big fishing cockpit and is an express design which means there is lots of usable space (more than most forty footers). This design also keeps the center of gravity low which translates to less rocking than on a flybridge style boat. The captain is easily accessible as the bridge is on the same level as the guest and not tucked away on a flybridge. We've always preferred this design as have most of our clients as it allows you to sit in the shaded area but still watch the lines, chat with the captain and be right in the action. All while enjoying a 360 degree view. The express design also allows for a nice breeze blowing through, (though we can zip up for rain showers) because of this (and the lower CoG) we get far fewer guest getting seasick than most charters as the fresh air blowing through (and therefore no diesel fumes) helps prevent that.
We will pick you up at most hotels, villas and guest houses. Please ask us if your location is included before booking.
Everything; pickup, tackle, bait, soft drinks and beer, and snacks (if applicable) is included in the price of the charter.
The boat is professionally maintained and has all the necessary coast guard approved safety gear and quality fishing electronics.
Charter Options; We offer so many options for fishing trips there's something for everyone or tell us what you'd like and we'll make it happen. See all charter Options Now
Keep Your Catch; Unlike many Barbados charter fishing boats we let you keep your catch.
Quality Equipment; You won't find 20 year old reels or broken rods aboard our boat. We have top quality American made gear from Penn and Accurate. We upgrade or replace all our rods and reels every few years or sooner as needed. Line is replaced very often.
Billfish Catch & Release; You will never see photos of dead Marlin or Sailfish on our site. Most Billfish stocks are in decline worldwide so unlike most Barbados fishing charters we release all Billfish.
We have competitive rates, and service on a personal level. We'll make your fishing experience in Barbados the best it can be.
Private Charters; Some charter boats will often group single anglers or pairs of anglers into larger charters of six persons, charging each individually. We do not offer shared trips (except our bottom fishing special). There is nothing worse than paying all that money and having to watch as someone else fights a fish that should be yours. We have just one fee, for the boat and we limit charters to six guests who you choose - you may bring friends or fish alone.
Our captain Chris has been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod & reel. Coming from a long line of Barbadian seafarers with a great-grandfather and grandfather who were fisherman and boat builders and a father who was an illustrious racing yacht designer, builder, and sailing charter captain, Chris' love for the ocean was there from very young. Summer holidays were spent fishing, diving, and sailing around the Caribbean with his family on numerous trips to the Grenadines and other neighboring islands. During winter and spring holidays time was shared between fishing, spear-fishing and helping out on private sailing charters with his father. These trips were high end private trips on a mono-hull, not like the catamarans of today. It was on these trips that Chris developed a passion for the charter industry. These days when Chris isn't taking out charters for us in Barbados (on his off season holiday) he can sometimes be found fishing for Tarpon and Bonefish in the Northern Caribbean or in North-Western Ontario fishing for Walleye, Bass and Pike, or hiking and Trout fishing in Alberta.
