There's just something about the seas surrounding Curacao that makes you want to get up close and personal. Fishing is one way that vacationers choose to test their sea legs in international waters.



The temperate waters of Curacao invite big game fish to remain in the area throughout the year. Inland fishing and shore fishing are possible, but to ensure that big catch, most anglers stick to deep sea pursuits.

Shore Fishing

Shore fishing on Curacao is a way to get your fishing fix without the hassle or expense of hiring a chartering company. Angler's simply need to find some bait and tackle, head to the nearest lagoon or bay (such as Saint Martha's Bay) and cast a line. Permits for shore fishing are not necessary, however, many of the island's beaches are private, and fishing on private beaches is generally frowned upon. Tarpon and bar jacks are possible shore fishing catches.

Deep Sea Fishing

The best option for fishing on Curacao is deep sea fishing. Waters grow deep very quickly off the coast, so even relatively close to shore anglers will find such catches as amberjack, barracuda, blackfin, blue marlin, bluefin, bonito, kingfish, sailfish, shark, wahoo, white marlin, and yellowfin tuna.
