This boat is both speedy and safe, and contains all the navigational and safety equipment you might need. It also features an icebox where you’ll store your catch until your return to the shore.

American Allegiance Charters can take you to all the wrecks, reefs, flats, and even the offshore waters for a trip unrivaled by any other charters. You will chase big Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, Mackerel, Cobia, Barracuda, Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Trout, Grouper and the list goes on and on.

Once your trip is over, the catch can be cleaned and filleted for you so it can be taken home. Make sure you bring a cooler so you can transport it home safely.
