Wasabi Loco – 45' Viking Express

Wasabi Loco is proud to present their newest boat – a 45’ Viking Express! This boat completely sets a new standard in the local charter industry. There is almost nothing like it in the neighborhood!

You are guaranteed an exceptionally smooth ride due to her size and her deep “v” hull. With her huge helm area and adjoining cockpit, there is room for everyone to be in on the action. She accommodates up to 14 guests.

You have lots of choices for your fishing adventure! You can troll for those giant trophy fish, like Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna. As deep waters are very close to the marina, you can start trolling only after 5 minutes! If you prefer bottom fishing, you can catch Grouper, Snapper, Triggerfish, and other typical reef fish. It’s great fun for kids and everyone else for that matter. And the fish taste good, too!

If you want to get up close and personal with the native wildlife (ie. sea turtles and rays and such) – you can do that too! Bring your own snorkeling gear or use the one on the boat!

The crew provides fishing equipment, soft drinks, snacks, and even lunch on a full day trip. Just bring your flip flops and sunscreen!

Wasabi Loco knows how to make their guests feel special and provide the best chances of catching a great fish. The crew has amazing boats available and each of them is the epitome of style and comfort. This is a rich man’s boat brought to you at an affordable price.

Don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
