      My FI wants to book a deep sea fishing trip for the boys, so we will ask the resort if they can arrange one for us!

          I haven't booked one, but this is something my FI and his father would LOVE to do but from what I've researched in the past it's soo expensive. When we were in Hawaii we looked into it and it was $800 per person! I haven't researched prices around Jamaica, though so maybe they have better deals?

            The guys did one the week of our wedding. Unfortunatley my DH just left for work, but what I do remember...

            It was about $600 for a half-day for up to a set number of people. I want to say 6, becuse at one point I think that is how many were going to go.

            We booked through the tour companies on the resort. We talked to four different representatives and they all recommended the same boat.

            The boat was nice and they had a good time - relatively - they did not catch anything and only had two nibbles. They did an afternoon tour becuase that was all that was available. Not surprising since all the tour companies use the same boat. They were told mornings are better. So, if you can you might want to try to book it in advance through you TA.

              I'd save your money for a different excursion- Jamaica is pretty well fished out !!

                  We went on one in Puerto Vallarta for our friends wedding and it was awesome!! There was 6 of us...3 couples and it was around $100 a person...the two other girls including the bride were soooo sea sick they slept underneath almost the whole 8 hours and my fiance was sick for the first couple hours but he stayed up with me and the two other guys....he kept throwing up overboard though...but every time he threw up we caught fish so it was very exciting!! We caught a lot of fish lol We had other boats following us cause we did so good! It is such a good idea for the guys to do before the wedding too! When we go we are definatly going to do it again and we just checked out the Punta Cana Marina so we could book a good chater ahead of time just to make sure! Even the girls will have fun...just not if you get sea sick...ughh that would suck!!!

                      I have five male guests who want to go deep sea fishing while we are in Jamaica. I arranged a tour for them through Norma with Lee's Tours & Taxi. The cost is $500 for a half-day up to 5 persons.
