Frequently Asked Questions

These are questions of general interest about fishing in St. Maarten/ St. Martin. Your question not here? Please contact us!

It always works out fine, customers have fun and sometimes they even bet on what rod gets the first strike or who goes 1st, rotation, or rod assignment, etc. it usually works out great.
The Cruise Dock is a secure area and the Marina is only 10 minutes walking distance depends on how fast you can walk. see the included map below.
Maximum 5. We very seldom make 5, sometimes we go out with 2 or 3 persons if they are willing to pay for the exclusivity.
Regulation is 4 rods at a time however this is not enforced, so we put 6 rods/lines in the water pariatur.
Usually, in St. Maarten the boat keeps the catch however if the customer wants some of the fish our policy is to always share the fish with the customer, we have found that this works pretty well.
No, we do not go out every day because some days we have no bookings.

Max 5 Persons Per Fishing Trip. Our 3/4 day fishing works out to be our most requested and successful trip.
Our boat is called Raphaella. It is an Express fisherman. We only use Tiagra Shimanos for trolling and for Deep trolling we use The Penn Senator 14/0, all our lures are islanders.
Yellowfin tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Dolphin(Mahi-Mahi) are running all year round. It is an excellent fishing season all year round in St. Maarten. In St. Maarten you will head out to the South Drop located approximately 4.5 miles (20 minutes) from the port. This area is actually a ledge that runs from Puerto Rico to as far as Dominica. This ledge is better known as the Puerto Rican Trench the section of the trench that crosses us runs between St. Maarten and St. Kitts and is a favorite hangout for big game fish of all species like Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Dolphins also called Mahi Mahi and Wahoo.
All refreshments are provided (beer, soft drinks, water) and a light snack on 3/4 day charters.
The Cruise Dock is located in a restricted area, designated only for handling and transportation people, however, we can arrange a pick up for you if requested. The Marina is a 10 minute walking distance away depends on how fast you walk.
No problem, no experience needed, no gear needed, we have lots of gear and our mate has lots of experience and is readily available to teach.
If we cannot make a trip because of bad weather we will offer you the next available day.
Yes, sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, and you may also want to bring a camera.
Our time schedule is:
- Morning 8-12
- Afternoon 1-5

3/4 Day (customer can choose, no later than 8:30 AM)

However, when the customer books the charter by putting a deposit, we will wait until the customer arrives, if the cruise ship docks late. This means that one boat will only be able to do one charter for that day, this happens occasionally.
1: Head to the terminal exit and turn left on Juancho Yrausquin Road.
2: Turn left at the gas station, just before the Vineyard Bldg and you are at Bobby's Marina.
