Climb aboard the “Grand Slam”, a 30’ Island Hopper sportfishing boat and get ready to catch the big boys!

You’ll target a wide variety of species, depending on your preference and skill level. Barracuda, Snappers, Groupers, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and other species are all on the catch list. For the serious angler, tournament trips are
available, where you’ll go after prestigious prizes – Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, and Tuna. A variety of techniques are at your disposal such as spinning, trolling, jigging, drift fishing, spearfishing, handline, and bottom fishing, using light and heavy tackle.

Children are welcome on board Aquadventures and Captain Tim loves instilling the passion for fishing in young anglers. The crew will clean and fillet your catch as included in the trip price, but gratuity is always appreciated. All required equipment is supplied by the charter, as well as snacks and drinks.
