Pipe Dream Charters - Pipedream III

251 Creekside Drive
Fernandina Beach FL, United States

Located on the beautiful Amelia Island at Fernadina Beach, northeast Florida, Pipe Dream charters run enjoyable deep sea fishing adventures aboard their sport fishing boat, Pipedream III. With a crew made up of tournament champions with a positive attitude, Pipe Dream Charters will make sure you have fun while being in the best possible position to catch fish.

The Pipedream III is a 37 ft custom built sport fishing boat that is powered by two Yanmar diesel engines to provide a fast and comfortable ride to the offshore fishing grounds. Equipped with a Furuno GPS/ chartplotter as well as a Furuno fish finder, the boat is ready to help your captain find the very best fishing spots for the day you go fishing. With outriggers, downriggers, and a center rigger fitted on board, and well maintained Penn and Shimano gear available for you to use, the Pipedream III gives you the opportunity to know what it feels like to fish professionally for the day.

Before booking your trip, you should decide whether you want to troll offshore for species such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, Tuna, and Marlin, or to fish the reefs and wrecks for delicious Grouper, Amberjack, and Cobia. Whichever option you decide to go for, the experienced mate will be with you every step of the way to help you land the trophy fish, while the captain’s superior knowledge of the local waters will make sure you’re in the best position to find the fish of your dreams.

My passion for fishing and being on the water began with my grandfather taking me fishing offshore in Ocean City, Maryland at the age of 6.The enjoyment I get from my clients excitement boating a grouper or my mate gaffing a Wahoo only adds to my passion to continue searching for that trophy wall hanger or bottom bumping for that reminiscent back water flounder.

The weather started out great but when the showers moved in this group toughed it out and caught fish and the spinner sharks put on a show.  Great time with your family.
