Covid 19 FAQs
Are you open for business?
YES!! Thankfully, we have returned to business as usual for boat charters in the USVI.

Masks are optional for the Captain and all crew members. If you have any questions, requests, or concerns related to the virus feel free to contact us prior to booking.
COVID 19 deposit and cancellation policy
100% Full Refund with 72 hrs notice of cancellation
We want to assure you that our goal is to have a great day on the water with you and your group. We will make every effort to accommodate refunds or reschedule your charter for a future date. In the event that you would like to cancel we ask that you give us as much notice as possible so that we can offer that day to other potential customers.
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 Northshore, we will pick you up on the North side of the Frederiksted Pier right by the fort in Frederiksted.
Our typical pickup time is 7:30 am for morning trips and we are more than happy to accommodate customers who would like to start earlier or later than our usual whenever possible. Afternoon trips vary based on the mornings charter. Text Captain Shane with any special requests +1 (504) 258-2589.
Weather allowing, we are also happy to accommodate customers requesting pickup at Salt River, Buccaneer, and Green Cay Marina.
What kind of boat do you run?
We currently run a Glacier Bay 260 Canyon Runner Catamaran powered with twin 2020 Mercury V6 200hp Four Stroke engines. These boats are notorious for their smooth and dry ride. For photos of it see our About page

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 10hr Fishing Trip Page
