Blue Sky Adventures - Capt. Don

98 Lake Drive
Palm Beach Shores FL, United States

Join Captain Don Giehl aboard Blue Sky, a classic vintage Bertram 42. Based in Palm Beach at world famous Sailfish Marina she is ready to do combat with Sailfish, Dolphin, or Smoker King Mackerel. If turning up the heat to something more exotic like chasing Wahoo in West End,  working on mixed bag or world class bill fishing at Chub Cay, or targeting big Blue Marlin at Bimini, Bahamas, is more to your liking you came to the right place. We can custom tailor any type trip you want!

Fall and winter are peak time for the West End wahoo. Early - Mid spring Chub Cay is on fire. The slob Blues of Bimini are best done late spring. Guests are required to have passports for these trips that run 4 or more days in length. We do these trips as packages including lodging, fishing, customs fees, lunch, soft drinks, snacks and much more.

December and January are peak months for Palm Beach Sailfish.  While we do catch them trolling, investing a little extra in live bait really runs the numbers up. Palm Beach also offers some very good sword fishing at night if you are looking to try something a little different.

Nice older boat would have been 5 stars but the air conditioning stopped working in the cabin and it was HOT. Not a good day for fishing but not for lack of trying. Capt. Don and Shaun tried everything but it just wasn’t happening that day for us or the other boats.
