Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The fishing was great (challenging, as targeting bonefish always is, but great), and there was plenty for the non-fishing members of our group to do. Staff were friendly and helpful, food was very good, and accommodations were very nice.

October is a beautiful time here! It can rain, but the showers are typically brief and days are mostly warm and sunny!

I've heard tarpon are not plentiful on Andros although there was one group that were determined to try for one of their 5 days. We did catch barracuda. I recommend taking a cuda tube lure and some steel leader the guides will know what to do. I believe they will also develop custom trips with fly fishing in the morning and bottom or reef fishing later on for more action.

"I loved our 2 room by the ocean, beautiful to watch the sun rise from your bed"
"All rooms are great and close to the ocean."
"Restaurant/Bar, not far from the rooms. Was quiet at night."
"Ocean front have a great view. Step out to beach."
"Be sure you have a plan for lunch if you are not going fishing. Shell's or Shine's are both great!"
