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. Captain Doug Price is an experienced fisherman who will make sure to put you on the fish and show you a great time fishing.

The Eagle Express is a large, custom-built 52’ 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.

With a huge back deck, a large tuna tower and an enclosed wheelhouse, as well as an extra-large cabin with 6 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 crew can cater for up to 15 passengers on a day trip, and 8 on overnight trips. With trips ranging from 4 hours to over 12 hours, they offer professional trips that are perfect for both large and small groups of anglers.

Capt. Doug employs a wide variety of fishing techniques on his charters, offering trolling, topwater, 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 Snapper, Grouper, and Triggerfish, as well as pelagics like Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Marlin.

The crew’s aim is not just for you to have an above-average fishing experience. Their main priority is to show you an adventure that is so much fun you will keep coming back for more.

    For anglers that really want to spend some time on the water but be back for dinner with the family, this is the trip for you. We have plenty of time to get out there and target the species of fish that are in season. We can fill the box or try to catch and release. We are always trolling for that big catch as well. So bring your buddies or your family and come enjoy a day in the water.

    This is a little extension of the 6-hour trip. This is still a perfect trip for all ages and all types of anglers, but with 2 extra hours you might want for those that really love to spend the day on the water catching fish. This is a combination of trolling and bottom fishing which is great for everyone in your group! This trip is ideal for both novice and expert anglers!

    This 6-hour trip will have you trolling out to where you will do some bottom dropping for whatever is in season. This is what we usually do for our Red Snapper trips. A 20% tip is customary for the deckhand and there's a fish cleaning service for .30 per lb whole weight.

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.
