FISHING CHARTER PACKAGES & RATES

WET A LINE WITH US AND KEEP ALL THE FISH YOU WISH!

There are dozens of fishing charters throughout the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, but only ONE Ocean Surfari. Our difference and exceptional experiences are the reason we are often booked solid, so plan ahead and call early. Our captains and crews treat clients like friends … because you will be after your first outing with us. Once a customer, always a friend. We share stories and great fishing spots as if you were family. Just read our reviews and you’ll see! Nobody leaves an Ocean Surfari charter unhappy. We love it here and we want you to feel the same way. See us in beautiful Red Hook Harbor, where we charter seven days a week for half and full-day excursions. Tuna, marlin, grouper, mahi. If it has fins, we can show you where and how to catch it.

CRUISE SHIP FISHING CHARTER RATES

Ocean Surfari Fishing Charters is dedicated to providing exceptional customer service to all of our guests, including our cruise ship visitors. While visiting St Thomas on a cruise ship, choose Ocean Surfari for your fishing adventure.

Ocean Surfari is located on the East end of St Thomas in a town called Red Hook at American Yacht Harbor Marina. We chose this marina due to the close proximity to the best fishing grounds, both north and south of the islands.

Our cruise ship guests take a taxi from the cruise ship port in Charlotte Amalie to our dock at American Yacht Harbor Marina in Red Hook. This allows more fishing time in more productive waters than vessels picking up near the cruise ship dock. We recommend Abraham for private taxi services, he can be reached directly at 340-514-3119. His website is www.abrahamtaxiandtourservice.com and email is bazzaribrahim@yahoo.com. Feel free to call, text or email him directly to arrange private transportation.. He will pick you up at your cruise ship dock and be waiting for you at our dock for your return. No need to worry, he will get you back to your ship on time. Charges will vary based upon number of guests and cruise ship location. Please contact Abraham for a quote and appointment prior to departing on your cruise.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE FISH YOU CATCH?

A: Several restaurants will cook your catch here on island. We will fillet whatever you would like to eat and you can have it prepared here on island.

DOES OCEAN SURFARI HAVE ANY AGE RESTRICTIONS FOR GUESTS?

A: We do not have any age restrictions for our guests. Children of any age are welcome but we do suggest inshore fishing for young kids as the seas are calmer and usually more action. In general 5 years and older do very well.

HOW LIKELY IS IT THAT WE WILL CATCH SOMETHING?

A: It is VERY rare that one of Ocean Surfari’s boats completely strike out. I know of only two occasions in the last 8 years when this has happened and both trips were targeting blue marlin exclusively. As long as guests are willing to listen to our advise regarding best fishing options, we will make sure everyone catches at least one fish and usually much more.

  • mahi-mahi
