Island Dog - Whaler One

Ocho Rios
Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Island Dog Water Sports is your key to the finest fishing grounds and biggest catches in and around Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Beginners to seasoned anglers, everyone is welcome to join in the adventure of a lifetime.

Come September, and the high seasons begins and then goes through March. But don’t let the season fool you - fishing is great year-round!

The list of your potential catches includes Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Blue and White Marlin, Barracuda, and Kingfish to name a few. Wahoo are also around in good numbers.

Island Dog Water Sports will take you out to the reefs, which are only 10 minutes away from shore. The crew will bait your hooks and you will drop the lines as soon as you reach the fishing grounds. When trolling, only 6 lines will be in the water at a time.

The crew will provide you with the finest tackle by the leading brands, such a Penn International and Shimano. All the fish caught will be evenly split between the anglers and the crew. All trips have a ‘no smoking’ policy.

You will be battling fish aboard the ‘Whaler One’. With her 33’ of excellence, a pair of 250 HP Cummins Diesel engines, and plenty of space for up to 7 anglers, the Whaler One can get you to the fishing grounds quickly and safely.

The Whaler One is outfitted with everything you need to make a great catch possible. She is also equipped with a bed, a toilet, and an air-conditioned cabin. All aboard!

I did not become a fisherman. I discovered that I was a fisherman from a tender age when there was nothing to me like catching a fish, so I just continue the life of catching fish until this day. My preferred style of fishing would be trolling with live bait, kite fishing, following weed lines, watching birds, and also watching the waves.

First off we got there early finalized remaining payment and were set to go.  They put us on a boat and then came and got us later saying.  “Speedy is coming in now and you are going to go in a different boat”. So we get out walk over and wait 15-20 minutes for that boat to arrive and passengers to get off, etc.  but then the boat won’t start back up so after waiting while they try to fix it we are told to go back to the original boat we went on.  Ok.  Things happen.  Then we go back to that boat and now it won’t start either.  So now we have waited almost 45 minutes past when we were supposed to leave and both boats won’t start.  So he finds a third boat that just came in.  Smallest of the three and then we get on, leave an hour late in a small boat in 15-20 foot waves and has no fighting chair.  We wouldn’t have been able to reel a fish in if we caught one it was so rough.  Needless to say we paid extra for a 6 hour charter and we went out for 3 hours.  Speedy may seem like a good guy and maybe he is, but the operation is terrible and a complete scam.  I can understand not catching fish but all the other things as well as only taking us out for half the time paid for is not good business.  Nobody offered us a partial refund or a refund for the extra money paid for the 6 hour trip instead of 4 hour and we received 3.  We are going back to Jamaica in Fall and I can assure you that we will not be booking with this operation.

Still waiting for a refund for the difference in a 6 hour and 4 hour trip!!
