Some of the many prized species you can catch on your trip are Yellowfin Tuna, Snowy Grouper, Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, Spanish Mackerel, and Sailfish. You’ll attract them by bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, drift fishing, and even kite fishing. If you want to, you can keep all the fish you catch and you’re welcome to bring children on your trip.

All the tackle, live bait, lures, as well as fishing licenses will be ready for you on the boat. What you should bring are just the food and drinks of your choice.
