El Capitano’s Offshore LLC invites you on a fishing adventure of a lifetime with a high-profile charter crew in the waters of Saint Petersburg, Florida. This highly experienced and welcoming crew will make your day on the water an unforgettable experience. Whether you choose an inshore seasonal trip for Kingfish and Tarpon, or an offshore trip for big game fish - you are in for an adventure!
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!
El Capitano will take you out on his 32-foot SeaVee center console, powered by two 350HP Mercury engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. This powerful boat will whisk you to the faraway deep blue waters where you can target a number of offshore species such as Blackfin Tuna, huge Amberjack, Grouper, Snapper, and more.
The boat contains all the fishing gear you will need, as well as a livewell for the bait, a GPS and a fishfinder to locate the fish, and a superb flybridge for sight fishing.
Your Captain Chad is a native of Saint Petersburg, a full-time professional offshore charter captain, a USCG licensed captain, and is a Veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard who was honorably discharged. He is certified by the American Red Cross in first aid and CPR.
El Capitano’s Offshore LLC runs approximately 100 trips per season, with 400 to 600 anglers who fish with them. Many are loyal, repeat customers who come back year after year, and you could become one of them!
