Showtime Charters is a team of professional, polite, and courteous mates who work hard to make your fishing experience exceed all the expectations.

Captain Tony will take you fishing aboard his beautiful “Showtime”, a newly upgraded and well prepared for the current bite 42-foot Hatteras. She comes powered by twin 600 HP Diesel engines and can cruise at the maximum speed of 21 knots. The former owner of the “Showtime” was the mate for Ernest Hemingway. The vessel is rigged with modern navigational electronics, including a sonar, a radar, a VHF radio, and a GPS. Perfect for accommodating up to six anglers, the “Showtime” features a wide and spacious deck fitted with a flybridge to spot any action going on below the surface, as well as an ice-box for the catch. Inside, she is air-conditioned and has a comfortable retro interior with all you need to relax in between the bites.

After a quick 15-minute ride to the fishing grounds, you will be able to enjoy butting heads with Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Cobia, Blue Marlin, Blackfin Tuna, Little Tuna, and who knows what else. Captain Tony is very familiar with the methods that work best in the local waters, including light and heavy tackle, spinning, bottom fishing, trolling, and kite fishing. Showtime Charters spares no expense to keep the latest tackle and equipment on the boat to make sure your fishing trip results in an outstanding catch.

A fishing trip with Showtime Charters comes inclusive with rods, reels, and tackle. You won’t have to worry about purchasing the licenses, the captain will provide them for you and your party. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted at the end of the trip, ready to go home and straight to the frying pan!
