Come along for a ride with us on the F/V Black Diamond! We’ve recently updated all of her accommodations and interior to live up to the reputation of being one of the biggest and most luxurious charter boats in the fleet. Her crew is dedicated to providing you with the experience of a lifetime that sends you home with great memories and a whole bunch of fish.

The Black Diamond is a 48’ Egg Harbor powered by twin 335HP Detroit engines. The boat is configured with two staterooms, 2 full heads, a galley, salon, and plenty of room for fishing. Perfect for enjoying a day out on the water for 6 people. The vessel also comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, a livewell full of the freshest bait, and high quality fishing tackle which can be set up for trolling, bottom fishing and spinning, as well as a bow for those looking for something a little different.

Each charter is all-inclusive and completely customizable to better cater to each and every one of your needs. We offer 1/2 day charters, all the way up to 3 day freelance trips, and everything in between. Whether it is a 7 hour trip targeting Rockfish, or a multi day adventure down into Mexican waters to fish for huge Tuna, you will be provided with food, drinks, licenses, bait and tackle and a cleaning and filleting service for all your catch.

OVERALL WE HAD A GOOD TIME, FISHING WAS A LITTLE SLOW, SEEMED TO TAKE QUITE A WHILE TO GET TO THE FISHING GROUNDS, BUT WE REALLY DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. THERE WERE FOUR OF US, WE CAUGHT 5 YELLOW TAIL, 2 BASS AND 1 BONITA.
WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND A 7 HOUR OR LONGER TRIP.
THE CAPTAIN AND FIRST MATE WERE GREAT GUYS AND VERY HELPFUL.
BREAKFAST AND LUNCH WERE INCLUDED AND DID NOT DISAPPOINT.
