Fishing: Charter Operators

A detailed listing of fishing charters in Tobago

In view of the differing budgets and preferences of visiting anglers, we have listed three separate lists of fishing charters in Tobago. It is seldom necessary to pre-book game fishing in Tobago, as there is always a surplus of supply over demand.

The following list covers the main game fishing players operating on Tobago. These operators offer the largest, specialist, sea-going fishing boats, fully equipped with all fishing gear and safety equipment and providing the highest levels of service - fishing at its safest and most comfortable. The services are listed in alphabetical order:

RSR Grand Slam

Grand SlamKester Herbert is widely acknowledged as Tobago’s number one choice for inshore, river, mud flats and fly-fishing. He is also a serious contender for top title for offshore game fishing, having been top captain at Hard Play for some years, regularly out-fishing his boss. He is a very quiet man with a wealth of experience and especially good for “one-to-one” fishing. He operates a 38ft Bertram Convertible, Bounty Hunter, and also has a smaller custom built flats boat, Grand Slam 200, for inshore fishing. His rates are probably the most competitively priced on Tobago. Kester is co-author of these articles, Steve Pitts, fishing charter service of choice and comments:

“I wholeheartedly recommend Kester Herbert and his mate Kevin. They are very professional and extremely knowledgeable of both inshore, flats and offshore fishing. His rates are worth every penny! Kester has fly gear, rods and reels suitable for tarpon and some offshore gear for ‘cuda, kingfish and dolphin.”
