Description: Since anglers began stalking bonefish the name Andros has meant big fish—and South Andros is home to giants. For those ready to climb to the top of the Bonefish ladder, there is only one destination: The Legendary Bair's Lodge.
Ideally situated for fishing the South and West Flats of Andros, Bair's accesses some of the most remote flats while providing many sheltered locations irrespective of wind direction. The lodge has also come to represent the benchmark in terms of quality guiding, delicious food, comfortable accommodations, and courteous hospitality.
The biggest bonefish in the Caribbean have long called South Andros home—and for good reason. South and Westside flats are remote and renowned for large, unpressured bonefish. These varied flats provide ample room to stalk and wade cruising and tailing bones or to cast from the boat—expertly maneuvered into range by one of our professional guides. This variety bolstered by some of the most consistent fishing in the Bahamas chain is why South Andros is considered the Bonefishing Capital of the world.
In addition, Bair’s guests can cast for elusive permit and the occasional tarpon and snook—making a Grand Slam day within reach for adept fly fishers.
Accommodations: Bair’s Lodge on South Andros Island offers deluxe ocean-side lodgings in an attractive plantation-style building surrounded by tropical flowers and palm trees. The bright, airy lodge is nestled on a sparkling white sand beach. Stretch out and relax on the verandah. Enjoy a cocktail from the fully stocked bar. And breath in the laidback South Andros scene, where you’ll spot friendly locals and bonefish tails for miles along the adjacent shallow-water flats.
Bedrooms are open and airy. They include terracotta-tiled floors, luxurious white cotton sheets, as well as tropical-weight duvets and piles of comfortable down pillows. Rooms are air-conditioned, with plenty of storage space and electricity outlets to recharge phones and camera batteries.
All bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms with full baths with powerful, hot showers. You’ll also find white towels, robes, and a full array of amenities. Bair’s housekeeping staff takes pride is maintaining clean, comfortable rooms. Laundry service is available upon request, and laundry bags are provided in all bedrooms. Two outdoor showers are available on the beach, where you can take a swim then take advantage of showering al-fresco!
Capacity 12 anglers.
