Heritage Boat Charters - 40'

Heritage Boat Charters is not only a fleet of comfortable fishing vessels but also one of the longest-running locally-owned companies in Guam. Captain Carlos specializes in sharing his love for the ocean with everyone who steps on board.

Explore the Pacific shores and reefs aboard his 40’ Dorado offshore sport fishing boat. It comes powered by a single 400 HP Caterpillar engine and can cruise at a top speed of 20 knots. The boat is fitted with a GPS, a fishfinder, and a VHF radio, along with all the necessary safety equipment. It also features a sleeping area and a portable toilet for your comfort.

Capt. Carlos has been fishing these beautiful waters for close to three decades and knows just how to chase the bite. He specializes in deep sea fishing and trolling year-round and bottom fishing during the calm summer months.

While trolling you will be going for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, various types of Tuna, and Marlin. There is a 100lb catch limit to which the crew will fillet and bag the fish for you.

Your captain will provide Penn Senator and Electramate reels, along with live bait and lures. You will need to bring your own food and drinks with you.

Your skill level and expertise don’t matter: from complete novices to seasoned veterans, Capt. Carlos can cater to anyone. All you have to do is show up!

Please note, that the bite depends on the season. You will need to contact the captain before the trip to know the best time to catch the fish.
