Reef Raider Charters

(18) Going fast!

It’s time to have an awesome day out with Reef Raider Sport Fishing Charters. Captain Ron Patton has over 4 decades of fishing experience and is ready to start making some incredible fishing memories with you.

Step on board his 53’ Sport Fisher a classic boat that was recently restored in 2016. There is enough space for your whole group to fish in comfort. Whether you are celebrating one of life’s milestones, having a family vacation, or need a team building, groups of 6 will love fishing from this beautiful boat.

This vessel has everything you could need on board, such as an air-conditioned interior, a 32” TV and DVD player for the kids, a queen-sized berth, a galley, a private head, and a spacious flybridge where you can relax and enjoy the sun while waiting for the fish to bite.

The fish you’ll be targeting include Mahi Mahi, Shark, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Black Seabass, Snapper, Wahoo, Grouper (when in season,) and many more from the Atlantic. Whatever your skill level there is a fish out here with your name on it.

On the day, you will need to bring along rubber-soled shoes that won’t leave a mark, as well as your own food and drink. If you would like the captain to cater your trip, please talk to him prior to the day to arrange this – there will be an additional cost. It is recommended you wear layers and have plenty of sunscreen to hand.

Included in the price are all the top quality rods and reels you’ll use, as well as bait, and even your fishing license for the day. After the trip, the captain will fillet your haul, leaving you the hard decision to choose how to cook it.

Book now for an unforgettable day out with Reef Raider Sport Fishing Charters. You are sure to come back time and time again.
