Barbados father & son fishing break

Barbados fishing boats

Ask your son if he fancies going on holiday with you and he might not be too keen…until you mention Barbados! Then he’ll be hooked on this “father and son” fishing trip to the Caribbean island.

The Club Barbados Resort & Spa, the newest resort to join the Elite Island Resorts Group, has launched a “catch & prepare” open sea fishing stay aimed at the growing number of adult sons taking a boys’ break with their fathers.

The seven-night, all-inclusive stay in a one-bedroom garden view suite includes:

  • Two chartered boat fishing trips
  • Catches prepared for one beach BBQ and one restaurant dinner to preference (curried, blackened, grilled etc)
  • Rum-tasting session with the resort expert
  • A post-sail deep tissue massage at the resort spa

Barbados, and the resort’s West Coast location, is renowned for good fishing waters with world-record catches as well as smaller local fish including yellow and black fin tuna caught from small boats (above).

Paula Whitehead, European MD for Elite Island Resorts, said: “The trend for all-inclusive holidays continues to rise in the economic downturn – and we always want to go further than the trend itself. We wanted to offer more to our increasing number of dads and sons travelling together for quality time enjoying pastimes they both have an interest in. Our new “catch & prepare” fishing package is neatly all included so they can relax knowing they have paid one overall price at the time of booking.”

The package can be booked through tour operators British Airways, Kuoni, Signature by Thomas Cook, Virgin Holidays, Tropical Sky and Best@Travel.

Best@Travel are offering the package with return flights between June 1-30 from the UK, from £1,725 per person. Click here to book with
