Explore Galveston’s offshore waters with Bandolure Charters! Captain Jay Dee will be your host and guide for the day, taking you to best fishing spots in the area. He has a knack for locating where the fish are and he’s very attentive to his guests. He’ll make sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable catching a few, regardless of your previous fishing experience.

You’ll be fishing on Bandolure, a 31’ Twin Vee catamaran that accommodates up to 5 guests. The boat is powered by twin 250 HP Suzuki engines and reaches the speed of 45 knots. This vessel also has up-to-date and cutting-edge navigational technologies. This assures a safe and reliable ride to and from the dock! In the harsh Gulf waters, the catamaran-style hull provides a calm ride. There’s plenty of room for fuel and fish, as well as a seating area.

During your trip, you’ll have a chance to target a variety of fish species, such as Red Snapper, Kingfish, Black Drum, Redfish, Amberjack, Barracuda, and many more. Discuss with the captain what you want to catch, so he can adjust the techniques and move to spots where you’ll have the best chances to reach your goal.

All fishing equipment is included in the price, as well as catch cleaning service after the trip. Captain will also prepare fresh water but feel free to bring other drinks and some snacks. Make sure to have your fishing license with you.

Bandolure Charters is here for a fun-filled day on the water for you and your loved ones. Pick a date and see you at the dock!
