Description

St Maarten Fishing – Near Shore

Join us on the high seas for a St Maarten Fishing Charter adventure. Because Sint Maarten enjoys a diverse ocean geography we can enjoy the best of all worlds. Whether you like to fish deep, shallow, on the surface or on the bottom, we are spoiled for choice. Just off-shore we have several productive shoals and wrecks to go after smaller reef species. Just 3 miles off-shore we are in deep water where we can go after larger pelagic species, either by trolling or drift fishing.

We provide all the fishing gear you will need but you are free to bring your own if that is what you feel comfortable with. No experience necessary! Our dedicated crew will be only too happy to help you out or give you a few tips if it’s been a while.  You might also want to bring a towel and your swim wear as we often stop for a quick swim on a nice beach before heading back to port.

The Boat

Our boat, Blu Bi U, is a 38 foot, motor catamaran, powered by two Mercury 150hp outboards. She will accommodate between 1 to 8 anglers and up to a total of 12 passengers in style and comfort. We have a head on-board, along with a small galley and gas grill for a perfect BBQ. She has a range of over 200 miles and being a twin hull boat, has excellent stability along with a smooth ride in but the roughest conditions. With a beam of about 14 feet, side mounted outriggers and ample rod holders strategically placed around half the deck, we can run maximum lines to increase our chances for a hit.

At the helm, Blu Bi U features a range of modern electronics and equipment to ensure your comfort and safety. We use a Simrad GPS and Fishfinder hooked up to a Maretron GPS antenna and an Airmar 1KW transducer which allows us to view bottom features down to a range of 3,000 feet. We also sport a state of the art music and entertainment system to keep you rocking in between the fishing action. Feel free to bring your own tunes!
