    Our swordfish trips are definitely for those who want to catch monster fish! These trips have you out in 1,500 to 1,800 ft of water. Being that deep you can catch Swordfish and other creatures from the deep. In the mean time while you are waiting for that monster to bite, you have the opportunity to catch Mahi Mahi as they swim past you.
