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’ custom-built sport fishing boat that is powered by twin Yanmar diesel engines to provide a fast and comfortable ride to the offshore fishing grounds. Equipped with a Furuno GPS/ chartplotter and fishfinder, the boat is ready to help your captain find the very best fishing spots for the day you go fishing.

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.
