There is a 16,000 BTU A/C and heated cabin, microwave, 32" tv with DVD player, Keurig coffee maker, Tuna green stick, and 5KW Norther light generator. You’ll have the help of a first mate available all the time.

There’s a great variety of fish for you to catch in these productive waters, with Goliath Grouper, Maco Shark, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Seabass and Marlin being just some of the species you can target. The captain and you will be using light or heavy tackle and will try your luck with bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, as well as drift fishing. Kids are more than welcome to join the trip, so why not bring the whole family and have a wonderful time together in nature. You’re free to keep the fish you catch.

Captain Shaun will supply you with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures, so you shouldn’t worry about equipment at all. He’s also got you covered for fishing licenses, which means you’ll just need to pack your favorite food and drinks before you start your journey.
