There are not many Bahamas Sport Fishing Charter Captains who can make this offer and even fewer will make it for their entire Nassau Charter Fishing Fleet.

This is the commitment of Capt. Mike Russell, owner and operator, a seventh generation Bahamian. With over 32 years of charter fishing experience Capt. Mike comes from a long line of seafaring captains, including his grandfathers and great grandfathers who passed on to him their love of the sea. Capt. Mike is proud to continue this legacy with his sons Capt. Adam and Capt. John-Michael. Chubasco Fishing Charters is a family owned and operated company, registered and licensed in the Bahamas, specializing in either deep sea big-game fishing or light tackle trolling over the reefs and wrecks.

Top Destination

“The Bahamas is well known as one of the great Sport fishing destinations of the world”.

Chubasco Charters Celebrates TripAdvisor’s ® Certificate of Excellence, for two consecutive years!

We have calm seas most of the year and very little travel time to get to the fishing grounds. Less than a quarter mile off Nassau and Paradise Island on the north and west sides you are in 1,000 feet of water and 4 miles off you are deep sea fishing in 6,000 feet of water. You’ll discover that deep-sea fishing off Nassau is unlike any other big-game sport fishing experience you’ve ever had. Nassau is truly a place where the whole family can enjoy a day on the water. Blue & White Marlin, Sailfish, Yellow Fin & Black Fin Tuna, Mahi-Mahi (Dolphin) and Wahoo are our seasonal deep sea targets. We can customize your charter to meet your needs. Whether deep-sea fishing, trolling the reefs and wrecks, snorkeling, beaching, swimming with the turtles, sightseeing or a combination of all six, our goal is to make your trip a special event that you and your party or family will always remember.
