Galveston Fishing Charter Company operates one of the largest and most reliable fleets in town, offering great value fishing trips with experienced crews and quality equipment. Launching out of their own private dock, your captain will work with you to build the perfect fishing trip, whatever that means to you.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 24’ Pathfinder center console. Built in 2005, this modern vessel provides a stable fishing platform and plenty of space for groups of five to spend a comfortable day aboard. She comes equipped with everything you will need, from the latest electronics to a wide range of tackle, as well as a choice of live bait and artificial lures.

You will be spending your day fishing around the area’s many jetties and shallow bays, targeting a range of big, tasty fish. Redfish, Trout, and Flounder top the list of table fare, while Sharks, Jacks, Stingrays, and more make sure you never get bored. You can choose between half and full days, so you can always find the perfect trip to suit your schedule.

All Galveston Fishing Charter Company trips come with live bait and fuel included in the price. At the end of your trip, the crew will also clean and package all your catch free of charge, ready to take home and enjoy – you’ll definitely have worked up an appetite!
