If you are hiring or can sail yourself, then there is plenty of time and places to snorkel and scuba. I don't know the local laws for fishing, but you could presumably do that too. I'm just not sure where you get the tackle either and bringing it on the plane seems difficult.

If you take classes, then there is little time for anything else.
I can't sail. I need a Captain. I don't want to take classes on this trip but I'll take every opportunity to learn.

I'm envious. Have a wonderful time. Any fishing would be probably dragging a line. I have offshore tackle but I wouldn't bring it as it would be cumbersome.
