El Capitano’s Offshore LLC invites you to join them on the fishing adventure of a lifetime. Get ready to cast off alongside a high-profile charter crew in the prolific waters of Saint Petersburg, Florida. Whether you choose to chase Kingfish and Tarpon inshore or want to head offshore for big game fish, you’re in for an experience you’ll remember forever!
This highly experienced and welcoming crew will make your day on the water truly unforgettable. The charter is owned and operated by Captain Chad Hickman, who is also known as "El Capitano." His nickname hails from his years of serving as a United States Coast Guard in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He proudly wears his nickname, and has even named his charter company after it!
Capt. Chad is a native of Saint Petersburg, a full-time professional offshore charter captain, a USCG licensed captain, and is certified by the American Red Cross in first aid and CPR. You’ll be in safe hands when you cast a line alongside him, and he’ll happily show you the local tips and tricks he’s picked up.
El Capitano will take you out on his 32’ SeaVee center console, powered by twin 350 HP Mercury engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. She can accommodate up to 6 guests, so bring along your best angling buddies, or make this a family vacation to remember.
This powerful vessel will whisk you to faraway deep blue waters where you can test your skills against a number of offshore species such as Blackfin Tuna, huge Amberjack, Grouper, and Snapper. She’s decked out with all the fishing gear you need, as well as a livewell for the bait, GPS, and a fishfinder to locate the hottest bite around. There’s also a superb flybridge for sight fishing.
Capt. Chad runs approximately 100 trips per season, with 400–600 anglers who fish with them. Many are loyal repeat customers who come back year after year. Hop aboard El Capitano’s Offshore LLC today, and you could become one of them!
