Guide to the Berry Islands

Fishing Gems Of The Bahamas

The small collection of 30 islands, which creates the family known as the Berry Islands, is famously known for being the Billfish Capital of the Bahamas. With all your fishing equipment onboard, this is a stretch of islands you won't want to miss.

Situated only 35 miles north of Nassau this collection of islands attracts many tourists from mainland USA and surrounding islands like North Andros and the Biminis. A small population of 700 residents are dotted throughout the Berry islands making many of the smaller islands feel more like your own private getaway.

Chartering around the chain of islands you will experience some of the exciting sights of Bahamian life. Travelling to Chub Cay is essential if you are here for the fishing. Attracting boundless amounts of baitfish, this island in particular really gives the Berry Islands their name of the Billfish Capital. Situated at the tongue of the ocean you can also be guaranteed a fresh supper every day you fish here.

For some home comforts during your trip, anchor down in the main harbor of the Berry islands, Bullock's Harbour. Fitted with all the amenities you need, this location will allow you to stock up on any trinkets, have a fresh lunch and even have a round of golf in the Bahamian sun.

Under the waters there are yet more adventures waiting for you. Once again Chub Cay has a great experience for you. The Chub Cay Wall gives divers the opportunity to explore deep drop offs and see underwater caves and caverns. Also in the same vicinity is the Mama Rhoda reef. Home to stunning coral formations and many eels, this reef is a highly sought after diving location in the Berry islands.

For those feeling really adventurous in the water, charter further north up the Berry islands to tempt fate at Hoffman's Cay's famous blue hole. At only 20 feet deep this blue hole is ideal for all divers and a great introduction into diving these natural marvels. Get the best experience of the blue hole by taking your own crewed superyacht, compare all the available luxury Bahamas yacht charters now to start planning your trip.
