Have you always wanted to come face-to-gills with a world-famous, notorious sea creature? Family-owned and operated Fish N Divers are proud to say that they have landed over 10,800 Sharks in Galveston since they started out, and they can’t wait to help you battle your very own! If you’re looking for rod-bending angling action, as well as some serious bragging rights, then join your captain for the chance to hook into a sharp-toothed sea beast.

Captain Matt Garner is usually the man you’ll find behind the helm of Fish N Divers, but depending on when you book, you may be guided by one of their other experienced, friendly captains. Together, this charter company has over 30 years of experience when it comes to exploring the waters of the Gulf, and they love using this wealth of knowledge and experience to introduce anglers of all ages and abilities to these waters.

Mainly, it’s all about the Sharks here, ranging from 50 pounds up to a whopping 350 pounds. Bull Sharks, Tiger Sharks, Sand Bar Sharks, Black Tip Sharks, Hammerhead Sharks, and Spinner Sharks are all potentially on the menu, but if you’re not really into Shark fishing, don’t worry! Your captain will take you out to catch limits of Trout, huge Redfish, Sheepshead, Flounder, and many other delectable species.

No matter which trip you opt for, you’ll be traveling on board a 27’ Key Largo center console, perfectly built to tackle a variety of Galveston’s productive fishing grounds. She can accommodate up to 6 guests, making her the perfect vessel for a truly unique family vacation – or bring along your angling buddies and get ready for a fierce competition, instead! She’s decked out with top-of-the-line safety and navigational gear, and you’ll find top-notch rods and reels, bait, and tackle on board.

If you’re looking for an action-packed day that’ll see you battling some seriously incredible species, then Capt. Matt has just the adventure for you. Join Fish N Divers for the fight of a lifetime!
