St Maarten Fishing Deep Sea, Off-Shore adventure, is our full day top end charter for the serious angler offers an 8 – 10 hour trip, departing from our marina in Cole Bay. 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. On our off-shore charter, there are several productive fishing grounds ranging from 10 to 20 miles off the coast of Sint Maarten.
You catch it, you can keep it! You keep as much of your catch as you can responsibly use. Our crew are happy to clean and prepare your catch for you at the end of the day.
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. 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.
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. She has a range of over 200 miles and being a twin hull boat, has excellent stability along with a smooth ride in all but the roughest conditions. With a beam of about 14 feet, side mounted outriggers and rod holders strategically placed around the deck, we are able to run about 6 to 8 lines at once to maximize our chances for a hit while trawling. There is ample space to spread out when bottom or drift fishing and avoid fowling lines when the action heats up.
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!
