Not only is she fast, but this beautiful boat is fitted with a covered flybridge and marlin tower, modern navigational electronics, fighting chair, outriggers, center rigger, quality Shimano gear, and plenty of deck space to accommodate up to eight anglers. The cabin and galley also feature a toilet, shower, kitchen with fridge, a queen bed and two single bunks, as well as a TV and stereo system for your enjoyment.

The professional Watchdog Fishing Charters crew have extensive knowledge of the ocean.  Whether you are trolling for Marlin or fishing the deep, they provide top quality heavy and light tackle to cater for all fishing conditions. Along with hard-fighting Marlin, you will also be in pursuit of Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Cod, Wahoo, Perch and more.

Trips include rods, reels and tackle, live bait, lures, fishing licenses, bottled water, and on their full or extended day fishing charters you will also be supplied with morning tea and a light lunch.
