Tranquility Hill Fishing Lodge is situated on top of a hill, overlooking the Eastern entrance of the North Bight, near Behring Point, Andros Island, Bahamas. Tranquility Hill’s location gives bonefishermen quick access to miles and miles of virgin flats and the numerous Cays of North Bight. Large numbers of bonefish averaging 3-6 pounds roam these flats. Plenty of fish in the 6- to 9-pound class can be found, and there are good chances at double-digit fish. Tranquility Hill also has wadable flats directly in front of the lodge and around the dock, where bonefish can be caught tailing, if the tide is right. The bonefishing waters of Middle and South Bights are less than an hour boat ride.
Tranquility Hill is a well run Bahamian Lodge. In early 2013, they upgraded and “resized” the lodge. The new configuration reduced the number of rooms to 5 spacious double rooms, each with 2 double beds, and 3 slightly smaller single rooms with double beds. Each room has a new couch/sitting area with 32 inch flat screen TV, small refrigerator, coffee maker and new quiet AC units. Also added is a brand new “Cottage” with 2 double bedrooms, common sitting area and kitchenette, for groups of 4 anglers. Outside is a new rod rack/ washing station with a rigging area. The dining room / common area includes a comfortable couch, satellite TV, bathrooms, and 2 tables to enjoy some delicious meals. The bar is a separate building with a patio. Hors d’oeuvres are served in the bar every afternoon along with Kalik’s, Exotic Caribbean cocktails, including Bahama Mama’s and Goombay Smashes, plus a wide selection of brand name liquors. This is a great place to sip your favorite cocktail, or the beer of the Bahamas, Kalik, while watching the sunset over the North Bight.
In addition to the many bonefish flats, there are numerous creeks and lakes, which could offer opportunities for record size Tarpon, Grey Snapper and Jacks or you may choose to fish the three “Sunken Rocks” where you find large quantities of Barracudas, Permits, Spanish Mackerels and Mutton Snappers or you may choose to fish off the third largest reef in the world for Dolphins, Marlins, Tunas, Kingfish, Wahoo, or the Graceful Sail Fish, just five minutes away from Tranquility Hill.
If you have any special fishing desires (you want to wade, target big bones or tarpon, etc.), please tell Ray Mackey your preferences upon arrival. That way your guide can discuss the options with you based on current conditions, and then work your requests into his overall plan for your trip.
Tranquility Hill’s chef, Cora Neymour, prepares delicious meals with a homemade feel and a Bahamian flare. Dinners are typically comprised fresh seafood, however Cora’s menu also offers barbecued chicken, ribs and steaks, as well as Bahamian specialties like homemade Johnny Cake, conch chowder, peas and rice, and baked spicy macaroni and cheese. The homemade bread, served with each meal, will have guests asking to take a few loaves home.
President Raymond Mackey, who started Tranquility Hill Fishing Lodge with legendary Andros guide, Ivan Neymor, leads the Tranquility Hill staff and guides. Prior to Ivan’s passing in September 2008, Ivan and Ray had over fifty years of experience guiding on Andros Island, making finding fish second nature. Ray Mackey capably continues the tradition leading one of the deepest and most complete guide rosters in the Bahamas, most of whom were trained by Tranquility Hill. Beyond catching fish, Tranquility Hill stresses the importance of having knowledgeable and friendly guide in any fishing situation. The guides at Tranquility Hill will greet you with an eager smile and can-do attitude the first day on the dock and will make every effort to give you the type of fishing experience you most want.
If you choose not to fish you may beach comb, sun bathe or collect shells on the seemingly endless white sand beach of Wood Cay. On lazy days you may wish to lie around in your spacious air-conditioned room, and watch satellite television or play games, like chess or checkers, with your traveling partner. You may even just lounge around the bar and watch for bonefish swimming in the flats or try a game with one of our smiling bartenders.
Flights from Fort Lauderdale to Andros Town Airport are now offered commercially on certain days of the week, making access to Andros more convenient than ever, and just a short 12 minutes from Nassau. Once in Andros Town a representative of Tranquility Hill Lodge will meet you.
