St Thomas Fishing - aboard Black Pearl Fishing St John Virgin Islands

Black Pearl has been fishing around St Thomas St John and the Virgin Islands and experiencing the best deep sea fishing inshore and offshore for over 25 years, everywhere from the famous North Drop located in the BVI waters (for the Big Blue Marlin) to the South Drop and all points in between - get ready for TIGHT LINES!!

15' Fly Bridge and Tournament Tackle

Black Pearl is a 38ft Bertram Sportfisher with a 15' fly bridge stable and comfortable fishing yacht with twin turbo diesels, and is equipped with the latest award winning tournament tackle Penn International rod and reels, and premier FIGHTING CHAIR.

St Thomas' Black Pearl is currently one of the top three sportfishing charter boats in the Virgin Islands

Black Pearl also has a nice, comfortable air conditioned salon, head, full galley and plenty of fresh water. And, if the seas gets bumpy (fear no spray) or we get a bit of rain, go inside the salon where it's nice and dry or go where the true fishermen go - up on the 15' fly bridge (i.e. the Captain's territory).

Black Pearl is professionally equipped and fully licensed for all your needs for the true ultimate deep sea fishing experience in the US and British Virgin Islands (US and BVI).


When booking your next deep sea fishing adventure make sure you book the best SportFishing Charter Boat, not a Commercial Fishing, or the cheapest - call Black Pearl and experience Virgin Islands true Sport Fishing with seasoned professionals - there is a difference!!

All of our die hard fishermen all say Black Pearl has that "hummm" sound that raises the fish! That's why we sing..... Black Pearl on the North Drop... she really rocks... raising Marlin to the top... Black Pearl!
