The boat you’ll use is a 26’ Glacier Bay 260 Canyon Runner catamaran with plenty of open deck space for 6 guests to enjoy and roam around.

Kids of 13 and up are welcome to come aboard but arrangements are possible for younger kids as well, so please check with the captain before booking.

Captain Andy provides all the tackle, bait, safety gear, and licenses, meaning you should only bring the snacks and drinks of your choice. Keep in mind that besides regular trips, you can have a customized trip ranging from 6 to 10 hours which will include a combination of any of the water activities and fishing styles you want. Just message the captain and he’ll work out the price according to the trip parameters.
