Take out your own small craft or gear up on a big power boat. Get onboard for a Caribbean pirate tour or a sunset cruise. Enjoy a half or full day group trip or rent a luxury yacht to cruise in style and elegance. Whichever you choose, there’s plenty of sea, sunning, food and fun to be had on a water excursion.
There are plenty of fish in our seas and three different ways to reel them in. Fishing licenses are easily available.
Bone Fishing is done by spin casting or fly rod catching the shy Bonefish. Bonefish are too bony to eat, but this is definitely a fun catch and release sport.
Bone Fishing, or Reef Fishing, is the most likely to produce bites and catches which is a fantastic activity for children or the novice angler. Hooks are baited with chunks of conch and cast along the reef and along the banks. Common haul includes snapper and grouper.
DEEP SEA FISHING
Deep Sea Fishing, or Blue Water Fishing, is some of the best in the Caribbean and it’s only a 15 minute boat ride from the dock. A thrilling fight on the trolling line can produce big game fish such as Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna, Dolphin Fish, and Barracuda.
