When you climb aboard the ‘Black Pearl’, chances are you’ll be thinking of its fictional namesake – and the pirate’s chest of gold hidden below deck. Captain John Romanik can’t wait to bring you onboard Black Pearl Charters and introduce you to the real buried treasure of Crystal River, Florida – the huge variety of species that live beneath these bountiful waters!
Capt. John is a Floridian native through and through. The waters of Crystal River have always been his home. What better way to experience this beautiful fishery than through the eyes of a true local? New and seasoned anglers are welcome on board, as well as children. Capt. John’s son has been fishing with him since he was 9 months old, so he’s an expert at helping little ones reel in their dream catch! Life jackets are provided to ensure their safety.
You’ll be cruising the mangroves, salt rivers, and bays of the Ozello Keys on a 24’ Hydrosports bay boat. She can comfortably accommodate up to 4 anglers, and you’ll all be able to fish at the same time – no matter whether you want to spin, jig, pop, scallop-hunt, or spearfish! Equipped with all of the latest safety and navigational gear, you can guarantee that you’ll be navigating inshore and offshore waters in comfort and safety.
Capt. John says it best himself: his charter is all about “catching fish, enjoying nature, smiling, and laughing”. Your happiness is what matters most to him – so whether you want to reel in Tarpon, Goliath Grouper, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, and more, or take the kids on a diving adventure for tasty Scallops, your captain will do everything he can to provide you with a first-class experience.
You trip includes top-of-the-line rods and reels, and tasty live bait to tempt your dream catch. If you want to spearfish, make sure you bring your own gear. Want to haul in an enviable stash of Scallops? Snorkeling gear is provided, so all that’s left is to come aboard Black Pearl Charters for the treasure hunt of a lifetime!
