Reel Magic Sports Fishing

Sunset Drive
Montego Bay, Jamaica

Reel Magic Sports Fishing Charters is based in Montego Bay, Jamaica. This area is famous for its big game fish all year round, so a day out on the water with the crew can land you on the fish of your dream! 

Their 43-foot “Tiara” boat is one of the best vessels in the area. It is a newly restored spacious and comfortable vessel, powered by two 550 HP Detroit engines. The boat’s top-notch navigational electronics, including a Garmin 16’’ GPS, a fish finder, a VHF radio, and a radar will assure everything is on point. “Tiara” comes complete with a galley, a bathroom, a kitchen, a stateroom, two coaches and is also fully air-conditioned. The vessel is also equipped with a fighting chair and outriggers.

On the trip of your choosing, you will be focusing on catching the fish of your dream nearshore, offshore, or on the reefs. If you decide to go offshore, you will head 7-10 miles out to target Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, and White and Blue Marlins. Species such as Great Barracuda, Goliath Grouper, Red Snapper, Wahoo, and some more are among those that you can chase when fishing both offshore and nearshore, as well as when fishing the reefs. Reel Magic Sports Fishing uses electric reels for deep drop fishing.

Shimano rods, reels, tackle, and lures are included in the price of your trip. Moreover, you will be offered refreshing drinks. The catch will be cleaned and filleted by the end of the trip. The crew may also provide the snorkeling equipment in case you decide to go for a swim.

A day out with Reel Magic Sports Fishing is fun for any angler, pro to beginner. The crew are especially good with kids, so feel free to bring your whole family!

Ground transfer is offered for a party of maximum 6 provided your accommodation is in Montego Bay. Accommodations outside of Montego Bay will incur an additional cost based on distance.

Captain didn’t say one word to us the first 15 min. Didn’t let us know that the seas were rough and if anyone got seasick. The ride picking us up was late also.

Mr. Colgan, I am very disappointed you left this untrue review!

We always maintain a friendly and good rapport with our guests.

The sea was never rough, we would not take our guests out in rough seas. The sea was light chop with wind speed less than 5 knots.

Your wife got sea sick and you told me on your second trip with us you would do some deep drop close to shore. I even took you to a Marine Store upon your request to purchase fishing hooks and then to the Fish Market to get fresh shrimp for bait and I didn’t charge you a dime.

The following day you came back to the Marina to fish off the dock. While fishing you were approached by one of the guys at the Marina who offered to take you out to the reef for US$100 which you accepted. You asked our First Mate “Shaun” to take you out and he took you to the reef and you caught Jacks and Garfish. However, you only had US$20 which you paid and promised to get the balance of US$80 from your hotel room after the trip. You never came back!! We tried to reach you several times but was unsuccessful.

Yes, your pick up was a bit late, about 10 minutes. However, I contacted you prior and informed you of the situation.

My family and I traveled to Montego Bay Jamaica. We planned a fishing trip with Captain Craig and was very pleased with the knowledge that he had. He knew exactly where to go so that we could catch lots of fish. We had a blast and I would recommend this Captain to anyone interested in catching fish in Montego Bay!!! Loved it!!!
