Blue Marlin Cove is located on the West End of Grand Bahama Island, 63 nautical miles from the Port of Palm Beach, Florida. West End is the oldest town and westernmost settlement of Grand Bahama Island. Known for its world-class fishing, West End boasts incredible offshore fishing as well as shallow water fishing just off our pristine beaches. Blue Marlin Cove is an angler’s dream! Designed and built for fishermen, by fishermen! Blue Marlin Cove has incredible deep-sea fishing within 1 mile of its marina. Year-round fishing for such great catches as Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Yellow and Blue Fin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and one of the Bahamas’ favorites – bonefishing! Blue Marlin Cove has gone to the next level adding the famous Bonefish Folley and Sons Outfitters and Guide Service. With new guide boats, offshore and snorkeling sightseeing boats, along with jeeps and a 15-passenger courtesy van to carry our clients to and from their island experiences, Blue Marlin Cove will not disappoint.
