Fishing in this area is an awesome experience. There are several guide services that you can hire. Sport fishing or trolling around the island off the coast, both a great time.

Fished with Martin and Pablo of Sea Kayak adventures with my son. They were very helpful and we enjoyed their two man kayak approach. Great value, very friendly and fun. Caught fish every day although missed a bunch of big ones but that's fishing.

Some people in our group decided to go fishing. During their trip, they saw dolphins, sea turtles and they even caught a 16 lb mahi mahi which we had for lunch and dinner. Fantastic!
