Galveston Fishing Charter Company is one of the biggest and most established names in town. They have been running charters in the area for years, building up a reputation for reliability and quality across their large fleet of boats.

Choose from a wide range of trips, fishing either inshore or offshore at competitive rates, with times to suit any schedule. All this aboard safe, well-maintained boats with quality equipment, run by experienced captains and crews.

You will be spending your day aboard a 26’ Stamas center console. The vessel cruises at an impressive 45 knots, comfortably carrying groups of up to six guests out in search of great fish. The vessel features a covered top to escape the worst of the summer sun and a head for extra comfort on longer trips.

The waters around Galveston are famous for the sheer variety of fish you can catch. You will be able to take full advantage of this on your trip, fishing the local jetties or deeper offshore waters to fill your coolers and have some serious fun doing so.

The list of fish you can catch inshore is unbeatable. Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, and several species of Shark. All these and more can be easily reached on a half day trip, and a full day will give you plenty of time to hit your limits on a ton of tasty table fare.

Head offshore, and you will be able to battle bigger game like Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Tarpon, and maybe even Sailfish. Up for the ultimate angling adventure? Book in for a Shark trip and wrestle monster Makos, Hammerheads, Bulls, and Tigers, alongside a long list of other awesome Shark species.

Whatever you do, you’re in for a very special day, with an experienced crew and a clean, modern boat. All trips include tackle, bait, fuel, and the cleaning and packaging of all your catch, so all you have to do is turn up and enjoy.
