Hawk Charters

It’s time to book a trip and meet the crew of Hawk Charters out on the water today. Captain David Berrane will make sure you have an awesome day out with him. With decades of experience, he will take you to the best fishing grounds for the most productive time.

Step on board his 35’ Legnos boat “The Hawk”. This beautiful vessel can have you and 5 fishing friends on board – so whether you’re celebrating one of life’s milestones, having a family vacation, or need to do some team building, this boat has plenty of room for you all.

With a 425 HP Cummins engine and full navigational and safety equipment on board, you can fish with peace of mind. Pair this engine with fishfinder and Capt. David’s extensive knowledge of the area and you’ll be on top of the fish before you know it.

Depending on the season and which trip you choose, you’ll be able to target a variety of species. These include Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Wahoo, Cobia, Kingfish, Red Snapper, Little Tunny, and many more.

Whether this is your first trip or your hundredth, there is a fish out here with your name on it. Capt. David and his first mate can’t wait to show you the ropes and have you fishing like a pro in no time.

Everything you need to have a successful fishing day is included in the price. You’ll use top quality rods and reels that won’t let you down when reeling in your trophy fish. The bait will usually be prepared for you before the trip so more time can be spent fishing. Even your fishing license for the day is covered. The only thing you’ll need to do is bring along food and drink and plenty of enthusiasm!

Captain David Berrane has been working on the water for almost 15 years and is a local to the area. He graduated with a masters degree in environmental studies, and is now an American Fisheries Society certified fishery professional. He is very flexible on his trips and will make sure you get the most out of your day with him. One of his fondest fishing memories is catching a 60 lb Wahoo and an 80 lb Warsaw Grouper – although you might not catch one as big as this, you'll love chasing them down.
