Chelsea Charters – 48' Willis Craft

Chelsea Charters welcomes you down to the Florida Keys and invites you out for an action-packed day on the water. Take on tasty reef fish and hard-fighting pelagic predators with an experienced crew and an awesome boat. Charter fishing doesn’t get any better than this!

The “Phoebe” is a 48’ Buddy Davis Custom Express which was expertly restored in 2017. She is powered by twin Cummins 450 HP engines and is licensed for up to 6 guests per trip. The vessel boasts a large, air-conditioned interior with a stereo and spacious seating where you can sit and relax. There’s also a private bathroom with a clean, functioning marine toilet on board.

The Phoebe is equipped with quality fishing equipment, all of which is maintained on a regular basis. She has outriggers for the best trolling spreads and her large cockpit also has a fighting chair to let you take on big game beasts like Marlin and Sailfish.

The boat is captained and owned by Captain Frank Drudi. With over 20 years of fishing expertise and countless hours at sea, Capt. Frank has the skills and the drive to give you a fun, productive day out. Your first mate, Jason, will be happy to fillet and bag your catch once you get back to the dock.

The productive waters of Islamorada hold a large variety of migratory pelagics and other great fish. During your trip, you can target Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Snapper, Grouper, Sharks, Sailfish, and more. The crew of Phoebe caters to anglers of all ages and skill levels, regardless of if you’re just starting out or have been on the water your entire life.

All fishing equipment is provided, including both live and artificial bait and licenses for everyone onboard. Snacks and drinks are also included, so just bring your sunscreen, your camera, and plenty of energy for the day ahead!
