I have been trying to get a license as well. It started off pretty good and I got an email adress to Mr Kenrick Thomas who was kind enough to send the application forms. I returned them togeteher with creditcard info and passport pictures and waited.

Two days ago I mailed him again to check if there was any progress, his reply was fast and short:

"This is the only email I got from you."

Checked my outbox to see if I forgot to send the applications but i hadnīt. Sent then again and asked him to confirm that he recived the application, no reply.

Devided all the attachments into 4 different emails in case the mail was to big for him to recive, no reply.

Mailed him again yesterday to check if he recived anything, no reply.

Well, leaving my office and faxmachine today, arriving Tortola tuesday. Guess I will have to take my chanses. Their loss unless they bill my card.

The easiest way to get a fishing license is to contact Scott at Island Surf And Sail - http://www.bviwatertoys.com/

He will get your license for you and have it waiting for you when you get here.

He is very reliable.

So are we all in agreement....? No real requirement if you are fishing from shore, kayak, dingy, or sailboat ?

Kerry being in agreement means a lot. There are few people around that know as much about the ins and outs of life down on the water here as her.

In May, we decided to purchase 1 license ($45.00) for our main fisherman - mainly because we planned to head up to the north drop and troll around w/o sails. An interesting twist to this was that our charter company asked to see our fishing license when they saw we had tackle. I don't know what they would have done if we didn't have a license. We were never checked by the BVI fisheries folks.
