Our vessel comes equipped with a bathroom and a large canopy to protect you from the harsh tropical sun!

Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Skipjack Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Roosterfish, Sailfish, Cubera Snapper, Grouper, and more are in the cards if conditions are right.

During the trip, you might be light tackle fishing, trolling, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area. For the more adventurous among you, there’s spearfishing (upon request).

Capt. Novel welcomes you aboard a 30’ Center console with room for 5 passengers. It has outriggers and everything you need for a productive day on the water.

Rods, reels, and tackle are covered by the charter, as well as lures. You’re welcome to bring home some of the fish you catch within size and bag limits. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. How’s that for fresh seafood?

It’s never a bad idea to bring sunglasses, a hat, sunblock, and bottled water.
