Acklins Island, Bahamas

Acklins Island is in the southern Bahamas, about a one-hour plane flight from Nassau. With a population of around 400 people, it is one of the most undeveloped, remote and beautiful islands in the Bahamas. There are many miles of unpressured flats and creeks on the bight (inside) of the island, where you will find bonefish and barracuda, often in knee to ankle-deep water. And on the Atlantic side, there are beautiful beaches and protected coves, where you’ll find good fishing for bones, barracuda, jacks and other reef fish.

Our trip will be based out of Ivel’s Bonefish Lodge / Golden Grove Villas, which are adjacent properties located on the water near Mason’s Bay, just a few miles north of Spring Point Airport. This is a new complex which has A/C, Wi-Fi and satellite TV in each room, and a modern reverse osmosis system that supplies unlimited fresh water. A traditional American breakfast will be served each morning in the main lodge. Lunch is packed to take on the water and includes a sandwich (or two), fruit, chips, snacks and drinks. And the dinner menu includes chicken, ribs, locally caught seafood and traditional Bahamian fixings.

Cost of this trip is $3000 per person, based on double occupancy. The package includes lodging, all meals and non-alcoholic drinks, all taxes and transfers, and 6 days of fishing. Five days will be guided (2 anglers per guide). Three of these guided days will be boat-based and 2 guided days will be wading from the road system. A vehicle will be available for DIY angling on one day.

Single anglers are welcome and will be paired-up with other singles when possible. And there might be some flexibility in this standard package, based on availability of guides and boats.

There are only 2 flights into Acklins Island each week, and they depart from Nassau on Saturday and Wednesday mornings. So in order to catch our flight, an overnight stay in Nassau is required on Friday January 5. Nassau expenses and flights are not included in this package. A packing list and info packet with lots more details will be sent out to participants when the trip gets closer.
