Deep Sea Fishing
Exceeding customers' expectations
You can sign up for a 1/2 day fishing or 3/4 day fishing or a full day of St. Maarten/ St. Martin fishing charters. Trips can start as early as 7:00 A.M. The half-day trip lasts for about 4 hours and the three-quarter day trip will last about 6 hours. For the half and 3/4 day trip depending on sea conditions, you will head out to the South Drop of St. Maarten located approximately 4.5 miles (20 min) from the port. This area is actually a ledge that runs from Puerto Rico to as far as Dominica. This ledge better known as the Puerto Rican Trench also runs between St. Maarten and St. Kitts and is a favorite hangout for big game fish of all species.
Trips include complementary drinks with a small snack along with bait and tackle.
In addition, you will find a vast amount of tourist attractions just minutes away from the Cruise ship Dock in Phillipsburg, St. Maarten. Our beautiful beaches are walking distance away, so get away for the day and enjoy an exciting day of St. Maarten Deep Sea Fishing Charter. It's our goal to ensure your comfort and enjoyment for the day, so come on out and go on a fish charter, swimming, snorkeling on the beaches or just lay on the white sands of our beaches and enjoy the St. Maarten Sun!

Captain Lance has lots of experience fishing in the Bahamas and the Caribbean and has run some of the best St. Maarten Fishing Boat charter operations in the Caribbean.
Our first mate is an experienced fisherman. He has been fishing since he was a kid and thus knows how to look at the horizon and identify where a fish is in the sea.

"We had a great trip with Captain Lance and First Mate Sparrow. We hooked into some great fish and overall had a great morning. After fishing, they helped us get set up with a local restaurant to cook our catch."
"We arrived early and Captain Lance was just unloading all of his equipment. First mate Sparrow was already on the boat preparing for the day. Within 20 minutes Sparrow starting putting out all of the rods. Within 45 minutes let the FUN begin! Landed a sailfish, a marlin, two barracudas, two wahoos and one small yellowfin tuna. Sparrow worked as hard as any first mate you would want on your boat, constantly checking and changing baits. Plenty of sandwiches and beverages on the boat. Captain Tony filleted out some wahoo at the end of the day for us to take back to our resort. A great day; highly recommend this boat charter!"
"Lance and Sparrow did an outstanding job of making our experience the greatest! We caught 4 fish. One 32 lb mahi mahi, 2 other smaller mahi mahi, and one Barracuda. Great experience!!"
