Fish Whistle Sportfishing Charters is a locally owned and operated partnership of highly respected, well known and fully licensed fishermen. Our captains are tournament winners and know the world famous fishing grounds surrounding the Virgin Islands extraordinarily well with over 30 years experience!

If you dream of having a memorable and exciting day offshore fishing for prized game fish species such as the majestic Blue Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna or Mahi Mahi or even just a relaxing day inshore fishing combined with some snorkeling and sightseeing with a professional crew that treats you like family, you found your boat!

“Family Ties” is a 45′ Wilbur yacht designed by dedicated down-east craftsmen for commercial fishing in the North Atlantic – but was customized exclusively to charter fish in the US Virgin Islands. We utilize tournament-grade tackle and cast net our favorite types of live bait daily when available.  On board there is a HUGE 16′ x 25′ open air aft deck with shaded seating and bean bags chairs under the extended hard top. There is a enclosed air-conditioned pilot house with a full-sized bathroom facility and a raised settee inside. For your safety and enjoyment aboard there is all the USCG-required offshore safety gear and the latest Garmin navigation systems which includes 25kw radar, chartplotter, sonar, autopilot and a 3-zone Fusion stereo system with bluetooth. She is powered by a single Caterpillar C18 1015hp diesel engine and is the ONLY charter fishing boat on island certified to carry up to 12 passengers + 2 crew! To call this boat a fishing machine would be an understatement!
