Welcome to Early Bird Charters

Hop aboard Troubadour, a 42-foot double-ender boat with cedar trim and enjoy a classic fishing or a unique boating experience in Bermuda!  Run by a Ford 125 horsepower diesel engine, Troubadour cruises up to 8.5 knots to ensure a steady and relaxing voyage. We offer "Full and Half-Day Fishing Charters", "Evening Boat Cruises" at sunset, small "Wedding Charters", and "Vacation Photos at Sea"! If you have your own idea for a trip on the water, check out the "Your Day, Your Way" option!  Details for the different trips offered are noted on our page titled "Charters". Professional, licensed, and insured - you're bound to have a safe and fun journey while out at sea!


Early Bird Charters is a family run business in Bermuda with over 30 years of experience. Captains Jim & Blake West offer a variety of charters; be sure to check out which one will suit you best! Jim's wife, Melanie Fiander West, handles the bookings, invoicing, and waivers.
