Where will I get picked up and what time?
We generally pick our customers up in front of Shupes on the Boardwalk. In the event of rough weather on the north shore, we can change our pickup point to the dock in Frederiksted where the seas will be significantly calmer. Our typical pickup time is 7:30 am for morning trips and we are more than happy to accommodate guests who would like to start earlier or later than our usual times where possible. Afternoon trip times and availablity vary based on the mornings charter. View the availability calendar for each activity by clicking the activity in the header menu.
Weather allowing, we are also happy to accommodate customers requesting pickup at Salt River, Buccaneer, and Green Cay Marina.

How many people can I bring?
We are limited to 6 max passengers in your group. This number is set by USCG and cannot be increased. There is no minimum amount of passengers, you can even pay for us to go fishing without you :)
How far do we run? How Deep?
Picture St Croix as the top of a mountain and the valley below is the Caribbean Sea. We are surrounded by terrain that slopes into the depths extremely quickly and the result is very deep water surrounding the island. On a typical day of fishing we will generally stay within 10 miles of the St Croix passing depths exceeding 13,000 ft at times. Although we frequently stay somewhat close to our beautiful island, our boat has incredible range and is suited for longer journeys when the opportunity presents itself. If you are interested in a long range trip you can get more info on the Deep Sea Fishing page or you can contact us directly for any other questions or concerns.
