Perfect glassy waters in magnificent shades of blue and turquoise. Sand that is so white, it simply doesn’t appear real. Weather so phenomenal one has to invent an excuse not to spend everyday out of doors.
Without a doubt, the island of Anguilla in the Caribbean British West Indies is a small slice of paradise. Many activities are enhanced when done on Anguilla, but few are as spectacular as fishing. Imagine, you’re sitting on those pristine beaches gazing out across penetratingly bright blue water and you crave to be a part of it. Looking out at the beauty isn’t enough, you want to be in the water. Feel the sun and the light breeze. Smell the sea. And taste? Yes, taste is involved – you can taste the sea…food!
Engage all five senses with Anguilla’s natural wonders through fishing!

He’s become one of the most successful fisherman on the island, and will take excellent care of you and your group.

Shoal Bay Scuba Fishing
Spend the day deep sea fishing on a 28ft fiberglass Panga, specially designed for off-shore fishing. This vessel can carry up to six passengers, making for a very exciting day out to sea! Though nothing is promised, the types of fish often caught are: Kingfish, tuna, horse eyed jack, barracuda, spanish mackerel, cavalli and on occasion swordfish and marlin.
