International Game Fishing Association’s world records have been achieved and registered in the Caribbean Waters. Many islands have their own competitions. Aruba has got many reviews as some of the best.

  • Antigua

Antigua is one of the top spots for Caribbean deep sea fishing, and you can find both freelance boats and a number of sailing trips designed specifically for wanna-be sport fishermen here.

There's not a lot of variety from island to island as far as fishing goes, therefore anyone wishing to take a Caribbean Fishing vacation will not be limited with destination options.

Prices vary about the same as anything in the islands, so Puerto Rico and Aruba offer some of the cheapest Caribbean deep sea fishing in the region.

Use a Professional

In order to enjoy a safe and fruitful day of Caribbean Fishing, it should be done accompanied by professionals in the field, that for a fee will take you to places where you’ll catch your fish and take pictures to show back home.

Licensed shops on most of the islands offer half and full day tours for all budgets. Remember that each island has its own regulations and you should abide by them. I insist on recruiting licensed professionals to help you on your vacation.
