I had a great time on my tour with Travis... He was knowledgeable about the water and knew the best spot for angling Black Snapper. You know it's going to be a good experience when you have fun catching the bait fish before you even make it out to the deep sea... Bucket list checked, thanks Travis!

About us

We charter a 26 foot Sea Hunt Gamefish. Our boat includes abundant bow seating, bathroom facilities, fresh water washdown, a side entry tuna door, misting system for hot days, a large center console for plenty of shade.  The boat is powered by twin Yamaha 150s, making it a quick trip from the Gulf to port. 

Our trips will go up to 9 miles offshore.  We target Snapper, King Mackerel, Amberjack and others. Each charter is private and will fish in State waters.   Our trips are focused on anglers wishing to experience near shore fishing in an enjoyable environment with a focus on fun and fishing.  Restrictions on harvesting fish are in place by the FWC and in season fish are limited by these guidelines found on the FWC website:  Your fishing license is part of the fee.  All you will need is a hat, sunglasses, sun screen, camera and what you want to drink and eat.    

Kids Fishing
Families, fish, and fun are the focus on this trip. Quantity over quality size fish is the mission, with lots of poles bending frequently. Fishing education is a key feature of these 3 hours on the water. The captain always makes time to visit dolphin friends on the way, as well as provide lots of explanations of the technology used to locate fish and navigate. These trips are catch and release, however, if a keeper is caught it will be cleaned and ready for dinner. This is a near shore trip.
