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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE FISH YOU CATCH?

A: Several restaurants on St. Thomas will cook your catch. We will fillet whatever you would like to eat and you can have it prepared here on island. Keep all the fish you wish with Ocean Surfari.

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.

WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH THE CHARTER?
