Island Time Offshore Charters welcomes you aboard for a day of great memories and even better fishing, launching from Port Aransas, TX, in search of anything from reef favourites such as Snapper and Grouper, all the way up to bluewater Billfish like Marlin and Sailfish.

It is no surprise that Port Aransas has grown from a small fishing town to a household name among anglers nationwide, with awesome fishing both inshore among the nearby grass flats and calm bays, and way out into the Gulf of Mexico - Island Time’s playground.

The “Island Time” is the newest addition to the offshore charter fleet in Port Aransas. The boat is a 36’ Bertram Moppie powered by twin Volvo Penta turbocharged diesel engines. She comes equipped with state of the art gear including the latest in navigational tech, all Shimano reels with world class Crowder rods, a Pompanette fighting chair, live bait tank, and extra large in-deck fish box. The boat also boasts a fully air-conditioned interior, with a full multimedia system, an enclosed head, and plenty of space to relax in the cool while waiting for the rods to bend.

Island Time Offshore Charters offers one of the best ranges of trips of any vessel in the area, with anything from 4 hour stints wrestling blacktip sharks, to 15 hour marathons heading up to 80 miles offshore in search of monster Marlin. During the Red Snapper season (everyone’s favourite time of year) the Island Time also heads out twice a day to give as many people as possible the chance to catch these famously exquisite fish.

All Island Time Offshore Charters trips come with tackle, bait, and lures, just don’t forget saltwater fishing licenses for everyone over 17.

We were more than a little surprised to learn that the boat Island Time has been out of commission for some time.  Both our boat and our crew changed due to this.  A good lesson learned is often the captains of the boats in Port Aransas do not own their boats…best to verify that you will be in the boat you see here on FishBooker.  Despite a one-hour delay, our crew was excellent and we caught our limit on red snapper (10) and got one shark. Overall a good experience.  Offshore means 1.5 hours out and 1.5 hours back, over a maybe rough sea (bring your motion sickness medication).  Prepare accordingly!
