The waters of the Caribbean Sea are home to some of the most popular fishing and boating sites in the world.  St. Martin is no exception.

The blue waters lapping on the shores of the dual nation island seem to call out to vacationers, drawing them to the deep waters aboard a sailing vessel of one kind or another.  Whether it be for fishing, to participate in water sports, or just a relaxing day of sailing, you can do it all in St. Martin.


Big game, deep sea fishing is where it's at in St. Martin. Anglers have been known to catch tuna, wahoo, yellowtail snapper, marlin, dolphin, amberjack, barracuda, and grouper on deep sea excursions. It isn't hard to find a fishing tour to take you out to the top fishing spots, usually the Puerto Rican Trench, and many of the island's fishing tour companies are highly regarded. For around $250(USD) per person, or $1000(USD) to reserve the entire boat for yourself and your guests, anglers are treated to a full day of fishing that includes tackle and equipment, refreshments, and instruction when needed. Some tours will even cook up your catch and serve it to you upon arrival back at shore.
