The Story

Enjoy Orvis-endorsed accommodations at Bair’s Lodge on your fly-fishing trip to the Bahamas:

  • The lodge is solidified as a classic bonefishing lodge, dedicated to providing the highest levels of service and comfort year in and year out.
  • Perfectly situated with access to Andros’ infinite flats—from the remote Southern Flats to the intricate creek systems and the fabled West Side.
  • Excellent wading opportunities, one of the most exciting ways to target big bones!
  • No trailering: you’ll run from the front door to the fish each day.
  • Our bonefish see little pressure. It is not unusual to see fish turn to eat flies that land just short of their intended target.
  • The West Side offers one of the best opportunities in the world to land double-digit bonefish.
  • Our veteran guiding staff is one of the best in the Bahamas. Professional and personable, they can put you on the fish and help you iron your double haul.
  • An excellent home flat in front of the lodge when the tide is right.
  • The latest Maverick skiffs, widely recognized as the ultimate flats boat, allow us to access the shallowest flats safely and in maximum comfort.
  • Loaner rods and reels are available free of charge.
  • Single rooms at no extra charge when available.
  • À la carte menu with exceptional fresh, local dishes.

Bair’s Lodge offers deluxe ocean-side lodgings in an attractive plantation-style building surrounded by palm trees. The bright, airy lodge is nestled on a sparkling, white-sand beach. Stretch out and relax on the veranda, enjoy a cocktail from the fully stocked bar, and breathe in the laidback South Andros scene, where you’ll spot friendly locals and bonefish tails for miles along the adjacent shallow-water flats. Our living room and dining room areas have comfortable sofas, plenty of reading material, and face the ocean. Here you will find your buffet breakfast laid out each morning. The lodge has a main bar and shop, both fully stocked. Two of the six rooms open onto a long veranda facing the ocean; they are furnished with comfortable benches and tables from which to sip coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. From the veranda, you can walk to the beach where the skiffs are moored. We also have comfortable lounge chairs and hammocks available all over. All bedrooms have terracotta tile flooring, white cotton sheets, tropical-weight duvets, and plenty of down pillows. Ensuite bathrooms and full baths are standard.

Culinary Experience:

Food in the Bahamas is the magical encounter between the treasures of the sea, history, culture, and its people. We pride ourselves on serving delicious local produce, specializing in fresh fish (mahi, tuna, grouper, and hog snapper), conch, and lobster. We carefully stock our larder with fine-quality foods from the U.S. and Nassau.

Loaner Equipment:

There are quality fly rods, reels, and fly lines available at the lodge for you to use, if needed, at no extra cost. Please advise us if you need a rod/reel prior to arrival to ensure availability. Flies and leaders are also available for purchase at the Lodge.

The lodge is a five-minute skiff run north or south to Deep or Little creeks. These easily accessed “cuts” open to more than 120 square miles of flats, swimming with impressive populations of bonefish in the 4-6-pound class. Our sheltered creek systems are both habitat and fish rich, and they offer anglers appreciated weather reprieve if the wind kicks up. Little Creek connects to the island’s West Side, which can be reached by flats skiff in about 45 minutes. There, you’ll find some of South Andros’ largest bonefish—adult specimens have been known to reach the trophy 10-pound mark. This is where anglers with sharp skills go to stalk larger singles and doubles pushing into skinny water on favorable tides. The pristine, undeveloped zone is protected by Andros’ West Side National Park. The southern flats, on the other hand, are home to some of the least-pressured fishing in the region. Grassy Creek is a 40-minute boat run from Bair’s. Weather permitting, you can ride on to Hawksbill Creek and as far as Cistern Point. This area is renowned for bonefish in high numbers; it is home to endless wadable flats, abundant schools, and very few competing skiffs and anglers.
