As an island, Barbados and Barbadian people have a close affinity with the sea so perhaps it has always been second nature to get into a boat and fish. Many local people do it as their everyday job, some entrepreneurs also offer charter boat fishing trips for visitors but the vast majority of fishing people are enthusiastic amateurs who love to go to sea and relax from all the trouble and strife of everyday life. By their nature, fishing people are peace-loving conservationalists who enjoy the bonhomie of fishing trips and the associated relaxation much more than the cut-and-thrust of competitive sport. Their sport doesn’t require high fitness levels, and refreshments to stock their sapped energy while at work are usually cases of Bank’s beer, bottles of rum and a packed picnic basket!
Sporting Barbados magazine was introduced in 1998 and remains an annual sports tourism publication that extols the virtues of the sporting and leisure activities of Barbados.
It is particularly valuable to prospective visitors as it not only covers the main topics, but it gives a plethora of information about activities, attractions, the island, the people, the culture and just about anything a tourist would want to know before they arrive, or while they are here.
