Private Charters NPI – Miss Celina

Private Charters NPI is an offshore fishing charter that aims to provide you with an exciting and memorable bluewater fishing experience. Captain Ryan Thurman has decades of experience in the business and will do his best to make sure your angling dreams come true.

You’ll be fishing aboard the Miss Celina, a 46’ Bertram Classic Sportfisher that is capable of both daily and overnight fishing trips. Her amenities include a refit salon with varnished floors, a surround sound speaker system, a flat-screen satellite TV, and a complete galley that includes a full-size refrigerator and deck freezers. It also boasts a fully outfitted lavatory, including a shower and a half bath. A full array of safety equipment is a given, and navigation electronics are there to make sure you’re on the fish at all times.

In addition to top-notch safety and comfort, the captain and crew of the Miss Celina want to make sure that your fishing trip experience is also first rate. All fishing equipment available on board is by Penn. Here you can fish without getting sunburned in a well-shaded fishing cockpit, or spot your next catch from a fully shaded flybridge.

Captain Ryan specializes in offshore trips, where you can expect to encounter a variety of gamefish. These include the likes of Mahi Mahi, Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, and more. If you’re up for something more delicious, drop on by during Red Snapper season and get ready for some serious bottom fishing.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of the trip. Ice chests are not allowed onboard. Guests can bring their own ice chests but they will be unloaded and placed into ice chests and coolers onboard. All anglers are required to have a fishing license, so make sure you get one beforehand. Feel free to also bring some drinks and snacks for the trip.
