Rankin Tuna Charters

You will have an unforgettable experience of tackling the giant Bluefin tuna in one of the most beautiful scenic areas in the world. Feel the adrenaline rush that happens every time you hook up whether it’s your first time or whether you did it all your life. Cape Breton has some of the largest Bluefin tuna ever caught as well as the World’s Record for largest Bluefin tuna weighing 1496 lbs. Our home port is in the picturesque fishing community of Mabou Harbour, Nova Scotia.

The conservation measures that have been taken throughout the past years in Nova Scotia and the large amount of bait in these waters have led this area to having an abundance of Bluefin tuna.

Reel in a tuna with Captain Andrew Rankin who is an experienced fisherman of 37 years. Andrew is a third generation fisherman from Mabou Harbour who employs his children to continue in the family tradition. He presently fishes lobster, snow crab, herring, mackerel, rock crab along with the Bluefin tuna.

We are taking bookings for the season which runs approximately from September 1st to November 1st. This is a day trip which includes food and beverages. This is a highly regulated catch-and-release sport fishery.
