Eagle Express Charters

(49) Just booked!

Eagle Express Charters is a family owned and operated business that specializes in deep sea fishing and prioritizes the safety and enjoyment of its customers. Fishing aboard a large, 52 ft custom built vessel, they can cater for up to 15 passengers on a day trip, and eight on overnight trips. With trips ranging from four hours to over 12 hours, they offer professional and reasonably priced trips that are perfect for both large and small groups of anglers.

The Eagle Express is a large, custom built Miller sportfishing boat that features two powerful John Deere engines. The boat features a full complement of electronics to help the captain find the best fishing spots during the trip and to keep you in contact with the shore when necessary. With a huge back deck, a large tuna tower and an enclosed wheelhouse, as well as an extra large cabin with six bunks, a master bedroom and two bathrooms, this is a spacious and comfortable vessel with plenty of room for your whole group to fish and relax. The air-conditioned interior features satellite television and a Big Green Egg barbecue cooker.

The professional crew aboard the Eagle Express is headed by Captain Doug Price, an experienced fisherman who employs a wide variety of fishing techniques on his charters, offering trolling, top water and deep drop fishing. Whether you are a novice or an experienced angler, he will supply all the gear and expertise needed to fish for species such as Snappers, Groupers, and Triggerfish, as well as pelagics like Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and more.

Eagle Express’ aim is not just for you to have an above average fishing experience, however. Their main priority is to show you an adventure that is so much fun you will keep coming back for more.

I make it a point to make sure everyone that comes fishing with me feels comfortable and has more than just a deep sea fishing trip but a memory that will make you want to come back again. I run a family friendly company and enjoy teaching kids the joys of fishing.
