Pipe Dream Charters – Pipedream III

Join Pipe Dream Charters on the Pipedream III and explore the beautiful Amelia Island out of Fernandina Beach! With a crew made up of tournament champions with a positive attitude, Pipe Dream Charters will make sure you have fun while putting you in the best possible position to catch fish.

The Pipedream III is a 37’ custom-built sportfishing boat. It’s powered by twin Yanmar diesel engines to provide a fast and comfortable ride to the offshore fishing grounds. The boat has everything you need to find the very best fishing spots on your trip. It can accommodate up to 6 anglers.

With outriggers, downriggers, and a center rigger fitted on board, and well maintained Penn and Shimano gear, the Pipedream III gives you the opportunity to know what it feels like to fish professionally for the day. After a fun productive day, the crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home for a taste.

These are fish-rich waters, so prepare to come across a variety of species. Before booking your trip, 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 crew will be with you every step of the way to help you land the trophy fish. 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.

Don’t hesitate to turn this into an amazing family experience, so bring your kids and teach them all there is to know about fishing. There will be snacks and drinks on board, but feel free to bring your own. Pack some sun protection as well, and you’re ready for some fun!

Get on board Pipedream III and enjoy your day on some of the bluest waters around with Pipe Dream Charters!

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.
