Captain Phil's Bonefishing Guide Service delivers outstanding half-day and full-day bonefishing excursions for anglers of all skill levels. Whether looking for a bit of sportfishing therapy during a visit by cruise ship or planning on the ultimate bonefishing getaway, Captain Phil can help all.

Captain Phil's Bonefishing Guide Service is based out of Mclean’s Town, Grand Bahamas Island, where we run half-day and full-day bonefish charters. To swiftly get on and off the flats, and to follow those bones in the shallowest of waters, our guide service is outfitted with 5, 17 ft. Mavericks flat skiffs powered by 85 horsepower Yamaha engines. Whether you want to go after them with a fly rod or light tackle, our guides will ensure that you are safe, happy, and ultimately receive the perfect saltwater fishing experience.
