The best fishing getaways for couples

Couples that fish together remain together and everything begins at the best destination. Fishing might not be that pops up in your mind when thinking about a romantic trip, but angling helps people connect and know each other better, which means that going fishing can be a great activity to do together with your better half.

Many fishing destinations are just perfect for couples. Regardless of whether you are in a recent relationship, or if you have been married for years, these destinations will make you have a great time while fishing with your significant other.


Montego Bay, Jamaica

The MoBay region, as it is affectionately called by the natives, which is located northwest of the capital Kingston is more than just a fishing destination to catch many different species such as tuna, marlin, sailfish, kings, wahoo, and mahi-mahi. The city is considered to be the island's tourist capital, is also known for hosting the world's largest reggae festival, Reggae Sumfest. There are some of Jamaica's most sought-after beaches, Walter Fletcher, located inside Aquasol Theme Park and Doctor's Cave Bay, in Montego Bay Marine Park. The first, with calm waters and fine sand, is perfect for those looking for fun. There, it is possible to rent jet skis, walk banana boat and jump on water trampolines. The second, which was known by the legend that its waters cured any disease, has a beautiful structure of restaurants, shops, and showers of fresh water, and is located in the Hip Strip. Montego Bay has everything you need for both good fishing and romance. What more could a couple ask for?


Yellowstone National Park, Montana

Located primarily in Northwest Wyoming and extending partially in Montana and Idaho, Yellowstone National Park is the oldest national park in the United States. Home to mountains, verdant valleys, waterfalls, and geysers, Yellowstone Park extends beyond the sum of the territories of Rhode Island and Delaware, stretching over 8,992 square kilometers. The size of Yellowstone may seem overwhelming, but the best of the park's key features can be found along the park's main thoroughfare, the Grand Loop Road. If you stay a moment on the Fishing Bridge, you will enjoy stunning views of the 352-square-mile Yellowstone Lake, snow-capped mountains in the distance and fish watching. You can also go kayaking around the lake, stay close to the geysers or simply fish. There are so many things to see and do in Yellowstone. The possibilities are pretty much endless here.


Hawaiian Islands, USA

Big Island, the largest of the Hawaiian Islands, offers tourists wonders such as the active volcano Kilauea, nestled within the Volcanoes National Park, and Punalu'u Beach, known for its black sands. Oahu is the main island and also the busiest with urban amusements in Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii, as well as natural attractions and bustling beaches such as the famous Waikiki Beach and secluded as the paradisiacal Lanikai. With about 15 km long, and excellent waves, North Shore is more a good beach option on Oahu. Hawaii's second largest island, Maui also has enchanted its visitors with breathtaking scenery and beauties like the Wailua Falls and the beach at Ho'okipa Beach. For those who enjoy nature, but also the pleasures of modern living, Wailea Beach Villas offers access to one of the most beautiful stretches of the island's coastline, but also to the main luxury shopping, The Shops at Wailea. Less visited than the three largest islands, Kauai hides some of Hawaii's most amazing postcards. The Na Pali coast in the north of the island, with its volcanic cliffs falling into the sea, and the incredible Waimea Canyon is known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" are some of the attractions. And when it comes to fishing, offshore tuna, sailfish, and mahi-mahi thrive a short distance from shore. But the great catch is the blue marlin. This may not be the profile of fishing destination for all couples, but those that love a physical challenge will truly appreciate this region.


Prince of Wales Island, Alaska

The cold climate of Alaska forces people to get closer together in search of warmth. Therefore, it makes a perfect destination for couples. Prince of Wales Island is one of the islands of the Alexander Archipelago in the Panhandle of Alaska. The island is 135 miles (217 km) long, 45 miles (72 km) wide and has an area of 2,577 (6,674 km²). Craig is the largest community in the region, founded as a Saltery in the early 20th century, and has a population of 1,000 people. About 750 people live in Klawock, a long-standing village that grew up with the fishing industry. Hollis is where the ferry terminal is located, an hour's drive from Craig and a three-hour trip to Ketchikan. Recently, tourism, including sports fishing, has become a more important role in the Prince of Wales economy. Tourism has increased not only because of the easy accessibility to the Prince of Wales Island by the new Inter-Island Ferry Authority, but also because Alaska offers the best of both salt- and freshwater fishing. Coho, Chinook, and sockeye salmon are there in numbers, along with cutthroat and steelhead trout. From rolling hills and to vertical cliffs, Prince of Wales Islands is one the most dazzling places in Alaska and home to an assortment of wildlife.

Couples that go on vacations together many times will have to compromise to make both happy. We hope these destinations will keep you both pleased and entertained. In any case, the great angling destination above can make it hard to pick exactly what to bargain about.
