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 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.

USVI & ST. THOMAS PRIVATE FISHING CHARTER RATES

While staying on St. Thomas, an offshore sport fishing adventure can be the highlight of your trip. A day of fishing with Ocean Surfari will prove to be exhilarating, while still relaxing, and the most memorable part of your vacation. See packages below and give us a call with any questions!

Unfortunately, our diesel fuel costs have risen from just over $3.00 a gallon a year ago to over $7.00 a gallon now. Rather than raising our trip prices permanently, we have chosen to add a fuel surcharge. Hopefully one day soon, fuel prices will drop, and we will be able to discontinue the fuel surcharges listed below.

GOOD TIME HAD BY ALL
GOOD TIME HAD BY ALL

A good time was had by all! Captain Trevor took us for a 4 hour inshore trip, he was very easy going, knowledgeable and especially nice with the kiddo. The pros of this trip are definitely more toward sightseeing, enjoying being out on the water and getting some small fish action. Not a big fish deep ocean trip, though they do that as well.

NOTHING BETTER
NOTHING BETTER

Had an amazing half day on the water, captain Trevor was great and full of helpful knowledge for us to use during our stay. There’s nothing better than coming back with a fresh catch for dinner. We will be back to St Thomas and will for sure be booking a second trip out with Ocean Surfari Charters! Such great people both on the boat and inside the store! Thank you all!

What a great day! Captain Jeff was awesome! He was professional, safe, informative and lots of fun. Although a shark took half of my catch, the enjoyment was “reel”.. I hope you appreciate what I did there. I highly recommend Ocean Safari Charters. Request Jeff be your captain!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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.

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.

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.
