Enjoy the breathtaking water wonderland of the BVI by charter boat.

WORLD-CLASS DEEP SEA FISHING
Bountiful deep-sea game fish flourish around Oil Nut Bay and include wahoo, white marlin, sailfish, yellow-fin and black-fin tuna, dolphin (dorado) and kingfish. Blue marlin fishing is just minutes from Oil Nut Bay in Anegada’s North Drop, where undersea canyons “drop” off the plateau undergirding the islands.
INSHORE AND REEF FISHING
Excellent fishing can be had in the BVI, especially in the reef-ringed island of Anegada. Inshore and reef fishing in Virgin Gorda, including the hunt for marlin, wahoo fish, and the slender, silvery bonefish—an incredible fighting fish that can weigh up to 19 lbs. (8.6 kg)—make for exciting fishing excursions. Fly-fishing is also popular for permit and tarpon. There are a vast number of fishing charter trips to choose from, leaving from Oil Nut Bay and surrounding areas.
