STOP PRESS! WE NOW SELL FULLY RIGGED FROZEN BALLYHOO WITH OUR FISHING PACKAGES. $23 – PACK OF 3
There’s a reason it’s called fishing and not catching – but, here in the bountiful waters of the British Virgin Islands, with our quality rod and tackle rentals, you have a very good chance of catching your dinner! Fish while you sail! Drag a line from the back of your boat and catch surface feeding fish like mahi-mahi, kingfish, tuna and mackerel. Sushi for supper? Delicious!
NB – Know your fish! Be aware that many predatory reef fish in the BVI have Ciguatera poisoning which can give you nasty food poisoning. If you want to catch and eat a fish, avoid barracuda, snapper, jacks, triggerfish and parrotfish.
Trolling Rod and Tackle
Fish while you sail! Rent this package and catch some big fish if you’re lucky! Fully equipped and ready to go with Penn Senator Reel, full tackle box and gaff. Rod holders on request. Buy some of our fully rigged frozen Ballyhoo for a better chance of catching!
Casting Rod and Tackle
Rent our quality casting package. This is the perfect lighter weight rod and reel for fishing at anchor or from shore.
Please note – we allow the loss of 1 lure during your rental – any subsequent lost lures will be charged at a rate of $10 per lure. Additionally, should a reel need to be re-spooled due to excessive lost line, a charge of $15 will be incurred.
The removal of any marine organism from BVI waters is illegal for non-BVIslanders without a recreational fishing permit. These cost $45 and are valid for 1 month. Pls note, Children under the age of 18 yrs are not required to have a permit, nor those who will only be fishing from shore.
For a $20 service charge we can organise your permit for you but require your scanned passport information a minimum of 48 hours prior to your charter. A $30 charge will apply for same day permit requests or a $40 charge for permit requests where that is the sole request. Please note, these prices are PER PERMIT.
To organise your own permit, contact the ministry of Natural Resources and Labour for more information:
