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 bathrooms. Free parking, restrooms, and complimentary coffee are available at the marina upon check-in.  We offer a 10% military discount for active duty and their dependents, or those with a reserve or retired military ID card.


At Highliner, groups of 4 or more are guaranteed a private charter!
