Our fishing charter trips are for parties of 2 - 6 people. Trip lengths range from 5 - 8 hours depending on which trip is chosen. We operate two charter vessels which provides greater flexibility and allows us to book larger parties (greater than 6). The size of your party will determine which boat you will be on. Both vessels offer heated cabins and bathroom facilities on board. We offer a 10% military discount for active duty and their dependents, or those with a reserve or retired military ID card.

Singles will be added to an existing charter. So for you guys or gals who like to fish but can't find friends or family to come along, give us a shout and we'll likely fit you in.

We do offer inter-island service. The location we are currently fishing will determine the pick up and drop off fee.  Please call as we can arrange pick-ups at most docks within the Islands.


As our basic service, we will fillet and bag your fish. If you would like your catch processed we can vacuum pack, freeze and ship your fillets.  See our 'processing and handling" drop down menu for details.
