Charter Rates

The best thing about a fishing Charter is the cost. Compared to the price one of these high tech boats, your cost is minimal. Friends and family alike will have memories for a lifetime. For the business people, what a way to tell your clients or employees your appreciation for their part in making your business a success. So get your dates booked and get ready to hang on, for that fish of a life time is out there with your name on it.

 We work 110% for you and treat you with the utmost respect on our boat. We want you to comeback and we think it's important to make every aspect of your trip the best it can possibly be.


We are a full time charter service, this is our life. Serving families, friends and corporations since 1997.

If you are looking for a quality trip and a professional crew then you have come to the right place. This is not like buying a toaster. Not all charter services are the same.
