Point to Point Distances around coastlines

I am trying to calculate point to point distances for 125 points scattered in the sea around a Caribbean island.  Hawth's point to point tool will provide straight line distances but these paths in many cases would go over land.  I am interested in calculating the distances between points for pathways of fish that must stay in the sea and not cross over land (i.e. shortest distance but sometimes around headlands and islands etc. 
Any ideas on how I can do that?  Thanks
