Some of your targets can be Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, Wahoo, Kingfish, Amberjack, Grouper, and many more.

All fishing equipment and licenses are covered by the crew. They will also clean and bag your catch after the trip. You only need to pack your food and drinks for the day. It’s also recommended to have your hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen as well.
