    Come and have fun snorkeling around, looking at fish, and finding the super delicious bay scallop on our grass flats. They are super easy to find and it's like an Easter egg hunt underwater. We find the scallops in about 3-5 feet of water and all you simply have to do is swim down and pick them up. Come have a fun and relaxing day on the water with the family and kids. All snorkel gear and fins are provided.

    Our 6 hour trip gives us more time to get out further spots offshore that are not so pressured by the boats and regular anglers nearshore. These trips we get out to the areas where we see larger grouper, snappers and amberjacks and more chances of bigger and better quality fish. Getting a boat limit of Gag Grouper and Big 3-6lb Mangrove Snapper are a common accuracies on these trips. Boat can take up to 6 people. Mate on board help keep everyone rigged and baited during these trips

The red grouper bite and red snapper bite remaining super strong here the last few weeks. limits of red grouper every trip out. If your into slow pitch jigging these groupers and snappers have been slamming the slow pitch jigs. slow pitch jigging is super fun and it proves to catch some of the best quality size fish as well.
