OUR STORY

From the inshore reefs to where deep ocean waters meet, Ocean Surfari provides a unique experience on the water and high quality apparel to keep the memory alive.

Ocean Surfari offers visitors a variety of Virgin Islands ocean adventures from exhilarating deep sea sport fishing to relaxing day excursions. We are committed to providing the ultimate Virgin Islands excursion and will assure your trip provides lasting memories.

We are located in beautiful Red Hook Harbor in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, known for its picturesque beaches, duty-free shopping, and historic center, Charlotte Amalie. Our operation in the British Virgin Islands is located in Soper’s Hole Marina on the island of Tortola, conveniently located near restaurants and shopping.

Ocean Surfari specializes in offshore and inshore fishing around the Virgin Islands. Inshore fishing is ideal for children or when ocean conditions Offshore are not ideal. On an inshore trip, our experienced captains can get you into kingfish, barracuda, snapper, and grouper, and many other species.

If you’re looking to tackle some big game fish, request an offshore trip and experience the thrill of hunting marlin, mahi-mahi, wahoo and tuna. We pride ourselves on a responsible catch-and-release policy for shark and blue and white marlin in order to protect and conserve these prized gamefish. Visit our FAQ for more information.

In addition to our selection of fishing charter options, we also offer half-day and full-day custom sightseeing and snorkel charters within the USVI and to the BVI. Visit remote beaches, hidden snorkel spots, and popular beach bars.

At Ocean Surfari, we keep clients coming back by always treating them fairly, and like friends. Letting them experience our island life. A life that doesn’t require shoes - although, I think I do have a pair, somewhere - a life that flows with the breeze and the waves. But also, a life that can be very exciting at times. We offer a taste of this wonderful life on every excursion with Ocean Surfari and thankfully, it keeps clients coming back for more!
