Aquarius Sport Fishing welcomes you aboard! Come experience fishing in Ocho Rios, a prime fishing destination in Jamaica that will give you plenty of chance to reel in a great catch and have an unforgettable time on the water. Captain Vaughn Johnson can take you both near and far off the shore while making sure you have a fun and successful trip you’ll remember for a long time.

Your adventure begins on a restored 55’ Hatteras convertible, a mighty boat that’s powered by two 650 HP Detroit diesel engines and spacious enough to accommodate up to 15 guests. Fitted to provide great comfort, the boat features air-conditioning, a multimedia system, TV, refrigerator, and ice-box. You’ll have access to all of its facilities, which include a flybridge, kitchen, toilet, shower, and bed. The boat’s also well-equipped for fishing and has got outriggers, downriggers, a fighting chair, snorkeling gear, and spearfishing gear. On top of it all, there will be a first mate present to give you any help you may need during the trip.

Together with Captain Vaughn, you will target Mahi Mahi, different species of Marlin, Cubera Snapper, as well as Yellowfin Tuna. You can catch them in a number of ways, including bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, and jigging.

Captain Vaughn will provide you with all the necessary fishing gear, bait, licenses, as well as beer and water, so you’ll just need some snacks for the trip. On full day trips, you’ll even get a complimentary lunch.

Come to Ocho Rios and enjoy a wonderful day on the waters of Jamaica!
