Hooked on Bluefin Tuna Charters is a family run business with Captain Allan, Son, Captain Blaine, and grandson Mackenzie. Allan has been involved in many areas of fishing for well over 40 years, which includes Bluefin tuna, lobster, mackerel, pelagics, groundfish and others. Both Allan and Blaine are experienced tuna fishermen. They both love the sport, and are very serious enthusiasts! Allan is a storyteller, and is known to keep people thoroughly entertained during fishing trips!
We do Tuna fishing, mackerel fishing, sightseeing tours, whale watching, sunset sailings, and any other boating experience you can think of.
During the summer and fall months, Nova Scotia is home to the largest Bluefin Tuna in the world, and Captain Allan docks his boat at the very same wharf where the IGFA All Tackle World Record Bluefin Tuna was landed by Ken Fraser in October 1979, weighing 1496 lbs. Giant Bluefin in the 700+ lb category are the norm for these waters, and granders are a regular sighting! Come and enjoy this unique and exclusive fishery … the only place in the world where you have a good chance of joining the 1000lb club!
We also have a completely furnished rental apartment over our garage if you choose to stay close by.
