Fishing in St. Thomas is not just about charter boats anymore.
A morning or night kayak fishing excursion in St. Thomas is the ultimate sport fishing adventure. In small groups or private tours, you will be equipped with a kayak outfitted for big game fishing.
The beauty of a kayak fishing excursion is the kayak’s ability to access lagoons, cays and inlets that boats and shore fisherman can’t. And we will be fishing those areas for some big fish.
Arrive at the launch area (for morning fishing we typically meet at 4 am, for night fishing we meet at 5 pm although times are flexible) where your fishing kayak will be outfitted and a brief introduction given.
We will launch the kayaks and begin paddling to several different fishing hot spots. While paddling we will be trolling with lines in the water. The guide boat is equipped with a fish finder so that the best locations will be targeted. Depending on weather and water conditions we will target any of the following fish: tarpon, snapper, barracuda and/or kingfish.
Each fishing kayak is equipped with 4 rods, 2 rods for trolling while we paddle from spot to spot. 2 additional rods are rigged and ready to go so that as little time as possible is wasted on changing tackle when we are anchored or drifting.
A tackle box and bait box are included which includes cut bait and various lures and terminal tackle.
We will be fishing in water between 20-60 feet deep. Each kayak has an anchor and 75 feet of line. The kayaks fleet is made up of kayaks between 13-16 foot which makes for a very steady and stable ride.
The tour lasts approximately 5 hours.
This St. Thomas kayak fishing tour is for guests ages 16 and over and it is recommended guests have some level of physical fitness. Kayak fishing is for anglers of all skill levels.
