Ocean Breeze Charters welcomes you aboard their flagship boat to spend the day fishing for the Gulf of Mexico’s greatest fish species. Launch out of Galveston, TX, and straight into the deep, blue waters offshore, miles away from the coast. This is not your average fishing charter.

You will be fishing aboard a 46’ Tiara Sportfishing Yacht. The vessel combines all the comforts of a full-sized cruiser with the fishability of a pure sportfishing boat. She boasts comfortable quarters for up to six guests, with full bathrooms and a shower. She also has a galley and salon, and air-conditioning throughout to keep you cool all year round.

The business end of the boat has GPS, fishfinder, radar, and a seasoned captain making sure you get to the right spots as soon as possible. She has outriggers with an impressive 75’ spread to help troll for big game pelagics, and quality heavy tackle to let you haul big fish off the bottom.

And you’ll find plenty of big fish. Depending on your trip, you could be battling Amberjack, Red Snapper, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi – even Marlin can be caught in the depths of the Gulf of Mexico! This is real bucket list fishing, and you won’t find a better boat or a better captain to help you chase your chosen sea monsters.

So what are you waiting for? Grab your food, your drinks, for cooler and your camera, and head offshore to start making some memories!

Please be aware that some Ocean Breeze Charters trips do not include fuel. See the trip details for more info.

My first experience in the ocean was from a car seat as a baby. I love my dad for getting me hooked.Fishing is my passion. I have fished the Gulf from Florida to Mexico. The ocean to me is the last frontier. I love every moment on the water. I love seeing the same passion in my customers when I put then on a big fish! I am very happy to teach anyone how to deep sea fish. Even on days when it is slow i still have a great time . Being a Captain isn't a job it is a dream come true for me!
