Coming to Harbour Island in the Bahamas is like time traveling. Take a walk down any street in Dunmore Town and you’re sure to be greeted by roosters and warm smiles from the locals. It’ll take a day or two to get used to, but you’ll notice that everyone extends a kind wave of the hand or a soft “good morning” or “good afternoon”. It’s just that kind of place.
When it comes to offering fun activities on the island, Conch & Coconut is your vetted one stop shop. In this article, we’ll cover boat excursions, horseback riding, and beach activities (like bonfires) that we can help arrange for you. Whether you’re an active thrill-seeker or more into staying horizontal under a beach umbrella, there’s something for everyone in Harbour Island. We like to remind our guests that they leave behind a fast paced life to come unwind here. So make sure to set aside time to become familiar with the slower pace and friendly culture that makes the island so unique. You’ll understand what we mean the second you get here, trust us!
The community, culture, and cuisine in Harbour Island has been greatly influenced by the island’s rich sport fishing history. Geographically blessed, this outer Bahamian island faces the Atlantic and boasts various ecosystems that are sure to impress even the most vetted fishermen and fisherwomen in your party. From shallow flats rich with bonefish, to vibrant reefs and deep water home to record catches of marlin, tuna, and wahoo, Harbour Island truly has it all.
As your premiere concierge on the island we’re dedicated to offering top-quality fishing excursions aboard our fleet of Intrepid boats. As always, our white-glove service makes planning your dream fishing excursion an easy and effortless process. Reservations for full-day and half-day excursions can be made online or by contacting our concierge team. You can count on water, ice, fuel, and a state of the art-vessel from us, but our real secret weapon are our experienced captains who know the surrounding waters like the backs of their hands. While we can’t guarantee that you’ll catch an award winning marlin, we can guarantee that your captain knows all the best fishing spots.
When you arrive at the dock our captains will go through basic safety instructions to make sure everyone enjoys the thrill of reeling in a big one without hurting themselves or anyone else aboard. Once you’ve covered safety instructions, you’ll be able to curate your adventure to your liking.
Craving the thrill of deep sea fishing? Then we’ll take you over to James Point, an area that features a 1,000 foot drop where you can find blue marlin, dolphin, wahoo, and sailfish. The area is so rich with life that it hosts the annual Bahamas Billfish Tournament. Luckily, there are a few other deep drop-offs in the area that will ensure you’ll have an exclusive and crowd-free experience.
Interested in catching bonefish on the world-renown flats that surround Harbour Island and Eleuthera? Let our captains navigate you to their secret spots where clear waters give you a clear view of the shimmering scales of fish swimming around the flats. What these fish lack in size they more than make up for in agility. Our fishing excursions will give you a first-hand experience of the remarkably fast and powerful pull of Bahamian bonefish.
After you’ve hooked your lucky catches of the day on one of our half-day or full-day excursions, you’ll be brought safely to the dock. There, you’ll receive help cleaning the fish so you can take it with you to cook or so you can hand it to a chef at a local restaurant to cook up for you!
There’s nothing that goes better with Harbour Island’s glamorous old-world charm than a thrill-filled fishing excursion with Conch & Coconut. Book your excursion online today or contact our team of concierges with any questions.
