For those who like to challenge themselves on the water, and perhaps even catch their own dinner, there are a wide variety of options available for fishing in St. Maarten. You can spend the day deep sea fishing with one of the many trusted captains who have been fishing St. Maarten's waters for many years or, if you prefer, you can rent your own Boston Whaler and drop your lines closer to shore and see what's biting. The waters around St. Maarten are known for their abundant supply of Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna and Dolphin (the fish, not Flipper) along with many others, and you’ll enjoy the day casting your lines and reeling in your catch. All bait and tackle are included in the packages offered and no licenses are required. Just bring sunscreen and a hat to protect against the strong rays of the sun. Enjoy!
