Capt. Black charters return


Legendary sportfishing Capt. Billy Black has joined the company’s Expedition Outfitter program, and has begun operating sportfishing charters out of Old Bahama Bay Resort & Yacht Harbour on West End.

Black, who has spent the past 40 years as a charter captain and operated a charter service out of Walker’s Cay from 1977 to 2004, has held many of the Bahamian record catches for blue marlin, white marlin, bluefin tuna, yellowfin tuna, dolphin, wahoo and sailfish.

His 50-foot Hatteras S/V The Duchess has recently been re-powered.

Old Bahama Bay is part of Guy Harvey Outpost Resorts. For more infgormation, visit
