The Queen Conch is a 40’ custom-built Munroe express cruiser that’s powered by a 450 HP Detroit Diesel engine. It has all the necessary safety and navigation gear to ensure a safe and productive trip, as well as a toilet that comes in handy during longer excursions.

The offshore waters in the part of Florida are packed with a variety of big fish. A typical trip can have you fishing for a variety of game fish, including Kingfish, Snapper, Barracuda, Sharks, Amberjack, and more. There’s plenty of fun to be had for the whole family. Captain Chris will provide the appropriate lures for anything you decide to fish.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of any given trip, along with all the required fishing licenses.
