St. Croix offers a wide variety of outdoor adventures to partake in, many of which include the beautiful Caribbean waters. While snorkeling and scuba diving might first come to mind, sport fishing is growing in popularity and offers visitors and locals of all ages a way to enjoy the water and bring home dinner!
Someone who knows the local waters well is captain and fisherman, Colt Cook. Colt moved to St. Croix nearly four years ago and turned his passion into a dream job. “Captain Cook Charters” is a fishing company located in Green Cay Marina that offers inshore and offshore fishing trips. Colt has two boats to choose from and ensures that every charter keeps their catch.
While fishing offshore you can expect to catch mahi-mahi, tuna, or wahoo. If fishing the open water is not your thing, you can experience calmer waters on the south shoreline and book an inshore trip. There you can fish for snook, bonefish and tarpon. Colt provides all the tackle, bait and refreshments to make for an enjoyable trip.
Captain Cook says he also enjoys educating clients about the different marine life on St. Croix. “Coming from a marine biology background, I want clients to not only catch fish but understand what they are catching and why it’s important to help preserve and protect these waters.”
