Sportfishing trips

Inshore fishing

Inshore trips are perfect for families or those who want to bend the rod without the long boat ride. Guests will experience multiple hook ups within the cays and surrounding islands at reef hotspots. Using live bait and lures, catching large varieties of fish is possible . Species include; bonito, yellow tail snapper, rainbow runner, barracuda, kingfish, jacks, and occasionally black fin tuna or mahi running inshore.

Offshore fishing

Located between the North and South drops, St. Thomas is one of the world's premier fishing destinations. On offshore trolling trips, we target the bigger fish currently passing through our waters during that season. Depending where the run is, it takes about an hour to get out to the grounds. Once there, the catch is wahoo, black and yellow fin tuna, mahi, kingfish, and marlin. These trips are best for anglers who love a fight and enjoy being on the water.

Fishing and Snorkeling

If your group can't decide whether to catch the fish or swim with them, this is the experience for you. We suggest a 50/50 split of fishing and snorkeling to have the ideal day. Throw some lines out inshore and even catch some lunch, then head out to favorite snorkel spots to check out turtles, coral and the reef..
