Careyon Charters welcomes everyone aboard, from family groups to seasoned pros, and offers exciting fishing trips to suit any taste. Captain Dan Carey has been fishing commercially for over 30 years, and always knows where the best fish are. He will get you there, even if it means traveling over 70 miles out.

Capt. Dan’s 30’ Sea Hunt center console boat has been specially picked out for its stability and rugged design, able to withstand the worst the Atlantic can throw at her. Powered by twin 300 HP Yamaha engines, it will have you offshore in no time, and comes equipped with everything you will need to bring in the very best once you get there.

The vessel has the latest electronics and navigational equipment to hone in on your target, and tournament-grade tackle to bring it in once you’re in place, as well as the all-important outriggers to best troll for fast-moving Wahoo and Tuna. The vessel also has a portable head for extra comfort on longer trips.

Head out to the Gulf Stream for a sportfishing extravaganza targeting massive Wahoo and Tuna, or fish the offshore reefs for delicious bottom species like Grouper and Snapper. You can also hit the water after dark for big game battles against monster Sharks – the ocean’s ultimate predator.

The thing that sets this crew apart, however, is not the boat, but the man at the helm. Anyone can buy a top-of-the-line vessel, but it takes a certain kind of captain to truly make her shine. Capt. Dan has won multiple Wahoo and King Mackerel tournaments, and has proved himself as a captain you can trust to get you your money’s worth every time.

So whether you want high-speed pelagic action, productive food fishing, or are looking to faces the terrors of the night, you can trust Careyon Charters to guide you to that fish of your dreams!

    This is the captain's most popular trip during the summer. You'll be fishing between 40 and 50 miles offshore to target some incredibly delicious fish. Everyone has their own rod and reel.
