Depends on what you have in mind. If you're looking for a private charter (???), you shouldn't have too much difficulty finding a boat/skipper who'll take you out for a half or full day. If you're looking for a walk-on 'day-boat'/'head-boat' (no charter..you just walk-on) you may have difficulty finding a boat that's operating this early in the ' tourist season' on the day(s) that you want to go out that will have enough other fisherman to make it worth the operator's time and expense to crank over the engines and toss off the mooring lines.

Try checking directly with these 'day-boat' operators--

Not sure what their schedule is like for the offseason, but the Jolly Roger still is in operation. I went out with some friends in October and it was a great time.

Is there any reef fishing out of St. George in early May?

The '..JOLLY ROGER..' operation used to offer scheduled pick-ups at PENNO'S WHARF on the Saint George's waterfront, one(1) day per week...BUT...this was back when there would be two(2) cruise ships berthed at Saint George's. The cruise ship schedule has changed since then and now there will only be one cruise ship berthed near Saint George's for a single day....and even that will be anchored out and passengers will have to be tendered in. I suspect that the 'JOLLY ROGER's' Saint George's pick-up is no more.

In any event, 'JOLLY ROGER' is regularly based at DOCKYARD, which is easily accessible from Saint George's, via the ORANGE ROUTE--Saint George's-Dockyard-Hamilton public ferry route. In addition to this, the "ELLEN 'B'. operation is based at the public wharf at Mangrove Bay in Sandys...and also accessible via Orange Route ferry to Dockyard, then #7 & #8 public bus route from Dockyard. 'Ellen B' may also do pick-ups at the waterfront at Dockyard as well.

In any event, you will need to **contact the operators directly** to find out what their operational schedules will be for the coming, 2010 'season'.

In addition to these two '..day boat..' operators, there are any number of '..private charter..' operators who will be delighted to make pick-ups at Saint George's...on '..your dime..'.
