It can comfortably accommodate up to six guests and is equipped with state-of-the-art navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF, a fish finder, and a radar.

The boat is equipped with outriggers and a fighting chair for those anglers who are up to a challenge of professional fishing.

Take your friends, family, and well-behaved pets and join Blue Crush Charters for a fishing adventure inshore, nearshore, and offshore.

Each fishing trip with Blue Crush Charters comes inclusive with rods, reels, tackle, and lures, as well as the licenses for you and your party. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted after the trip for you to take home and have for dinner later. Or just fill the freezer.

With over 30 years of experience on the water, I enjoy boating, fishing, and meeting new people. I prefer using live bait or jigging, however, I am always prepared to try whatever method that will produce a nice catch.
