I am not a diver, but an advanced snorkeler. Does anyone know a local / fisherman / charter who will do a trip to catch lobsters or conch? Yum.

You would have to arrange a private charter with someone that is actually willing to share their favorite conch and lobster spots. There are rules and regs concerning taking conch and lobster as well.

See https://www.vinow.com/general_usvi/more_info/fishing/usvifishingregulations.php
for rules and regs. concerning season, size and limits.

Yes, there needs to be rules, limits ect., of course. Guess the meat is so coveted no one does this type of charter for a business? Or maybe, just doesn't advertise it, which is why i inquired here. Maybe one has to mosey around the docks? Just looking for something a little adventurous, and a lobster bbq / fresh conch salad would be the end bonus of the tour.
