Shared and Private Charters

Shared Fishing Charters

Shared Charters are just that, you share the boat with 5 other anglers. You can go by yourself, or bring friends. Shared Charters fish for a wide variety of fish depending on what has been biting. Each of the 6 anglers (shares) will draw straws for 1 of the 6 rods on the boat. When your rod hooks up, you will have the experience (and the fight) of your life! WOW!

On Shared Charters each angler takes home up to 2 lbs. of the fish caught that day. Everyone wants to take a piece of the fish they caught home, however, because we can’t cut everyone’s fish, the actual fish that gets cut will be at the Captain’s discretion. Any single fish over 100 lbs. will not be cut, and will stay with the boat.

Private Fishing Charters

Private Charters are just that, it’s your boat! You can go by yourself or take 5 of your friends. Because we fall under U.S. Coastguard regulations, we are allowed to have a maximum of 6 passengers on board. If you have additional anglers, NO PROBLEM, we can accommodate your group using additional boats. You can let the Captain know what type of fish you would like to target and the crew will try to accommodate, however, please keep in mind any fish can bite the hook!

On Private Charters you get to take home up to half the fish caught, up to 50 lbs. of fish. If 10 Mahi Mahi are caught, you get 5! We will fillet & bag the fish for you. Any single fish over 100 lbs. will not be cut, and will stay with the boat.

Catering Available for Private Charters Only

Food Packages are available for $60/person plus tax, with a 4 package minimum.

Packages include Continental Breakfast (muffins or pastries), Gourmet Deli Sandwich, Chips, Fruit, Cookies for all day snacking & all the bottled water and sodas you can drink on your trip.
Please let us know when making your reservation if you desire this extra service.
