An ideal location, Scrub Island Resort offers easy access to the famous North Drop, known for world-class Blue Marlin fishing.
“The inaugural tournament was such a huge success, drawing very accomplished teams from various countries, and we expect a great deal of interest for this year’s event from competitors anxious to get out and enjoy the challenge,” said Michael Schoonewagen, general manager of Scrub Island Resort. “We have full support from the BVI Department of Conservation & Fisheries and tremendous feedback from the most devoted of anglers.”
During the tournament, anglers and their families may enjoy the resort’s top-tier amenities, including Ixora Spa, world-class restaurants, two private beaches, a four-tiered pool with waterfalls, a 55-slip marina and more. Scrub Island’s Marina is the departure point for most of the water-oriented activities available at the resort. Yachts and watercraft of all sizes are available for group and private charters, from sightseeing to deep sea fishing.
