H2O Bonefishing Lodge is a perfect destination whether you are an ardent angler seeking fine bonefishing on some of the productive flats in the Bahamas, or in the spirit of compromise, you wish to provide a good vacation for your non-angling companions, then Freeport, Grand Bahama Island will achieve your objective. H2O Bonefishing program eliminates the need to choose between world class bonefishing for the anglers and comfort, amenities, and activities for the non-angler. It combines a world class bonefishing experience with a stay at a popular adventure resort located in the heart of Port Lucaya. Traditionally it has been difficult to find a larger resort with such a well-managed and comprehensive fishing program.
Pelican Bay Resort, a colonial style property is adjacent to Lucaya Marketplace and is Grand Bahamas’ newest boutique hotel where visitors find Caribbean charm mixed with Old World service. Danish architects incorporated sophisticated European design with traditional Caribbean architecture and delivered luxurious accommodations. Each of the 60+ rooms has a private balcony overlooking the courtyard area and the marina, shops and restaurants of Port Lucaya Marketplace. The spacious accommodations include air conditioned rooms with either one king-size bed or twin double beds and boast satellite TV, direct dial phone, refrigerator and in-room coffee maker.

The Lucaya beach is an easy five-minute stroll away. Fishing guests enjoy breakfast at the hotel’s Canal House restaurant and lunch on the water while fishing. There are a number of excellent restaurants within walking distance of Pelican Bay where non-fishers can have lunch and everyone can eat dinner.
The guides working for H2O Bonefishing are all employees of the outfitter. Unlike some large vacation resorts in the Bahamas that simply hire an independent guide and call it a fishing package, H2O oversees the entire fishing operation. Anglers traveling from late February through June can usually expect to catch more bonefish than at other times. Off-shore and tarpon fishing picks up in April and stays good right through the summer Cloud cover and thunderstorms sometimes hamper the fishing in from late July through September. Fall brings another opportunity for anglers to catch a big bonefish since trophy fish return to the flats in mid-October through December. This is a great bet for trophies. Grand Bahama boasts one of the most expansive bonefishing areas in the Bahamas, with shallow flats extending 25 miles to the west and more than sixty miles to the east. This fishery is also part of the extensive and undisturbed 2500 square mile Little Bahama Bank.
