The Delphi Club on Abaco is a luxury fishing lodge in an idyllic wilderness location. Its guests enjoy the best of Bahamas bonefishing, brilliant birding and a wide range other activities in one of the Bahamas’ hidden beauty spots.
Its top quality accommodation and food and its beautiful, unspoiled location attract nature lovers from all over the world. Add in world-class bonefishing, a stunning deserted beach, and charming pool garden, superb food and a great wine cellar, and you have the perfect tropical hideaway.
Designed in the style of an 18th century colonial plantation house, with large wrap-around verandahs, the 8-bedroom lodge stands on a high ridge to catch the sea breezes and panoramic ocean views. It’s a romantic getaway, a luxury bonefish resort and a birder’s paradise View more... all rolled into one.
The Delphi Club has attracted consistently favourable reviews from guests and from the press since it opened in 2009. As one guest commented: “It’s payback time for the fishing widow; she’ll love it just as much as him.” So bonefishers with non-fishing wives or partners to pacify need look no further.
This elegant beachfront retreat is half an hour south of Marsh Harbour, which has an international airport with many direct flights to and from the US and Nassau each day.
There are many options for non-fishers, both active and inactive. Guided birding trips; diving over spectacular coral reefs; golf at Treasure Cay; guided snorkelling; big game fishing and miles of beachcombing along Abaco’s amazing sandy coastline.
For the less active, boat trips to the charming outer islands, with their picture-postcard colonial villages and the swimming pigs of No Name Cay; private massage treatments; or shopping for local crafts in Marsh Harbour or Hope Town.
It’s the initiative of Peter Mantle, who created the multi-award-winning Delphi Lodge in Ireland – a glorious salmon fishing lodge that is listed in “A Thousand Places To See Before You Die”. The Delphi Club at Rolling Harbour is designed to bring the same standards of comfort, atmosphere, dazzling location, culinary excellence and excellent flyfishing as its Irish counterpart, albeit with a tropical twist.
The cost of the accommodation package, including all meals, all taxes and airport transfers, is $500 per person per night. The Club is open from late October to the end of June.

The Club is close to the world-class bonefishing flats of the Abaco Marls, where large numbers of uneducated bonefish, barracuda and occasional large permit provide fantastic sport for fly-fishermen in uncrowded waters. There are also superb white-sand wading flats at Cherokee Sound, where larger and more seasoned bone fish and occasional permit present a special challenge, and at Cross Harbour. With the right conditions, there can also be great fishing off the Club’s beach.
