Experience counts when it comes to fishing. You want to know that your guide/captain really knows the area – where the fish are biting and everything to be weary of to stay safe. In St. Croix, just such a captain is named Ben Garcia. The head guy at St. Croix Deep Blue Fishing Charters, Captain Ben is a third generation fisherman born and raised in St. Croix. (He’s also a PADI-certified dive master in case you need that too.) With two boats – 45-foot Hatteras “Island Girl,” and 31-foot Sea Hawk “Reel Cruzan” – Captain Ben can put you on the fish whether they’re far out in the deep, or in the shallows closer to shore.
