Your adventure starts on a restored 26’ World Cat catamaran that can sit up to 4 guests.

You can attract them by light and heavy tackle bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, trolling, and drift fishing, and you’ll keep the fish you catch. Kids are more than welcome to join in.

Captain Charles will provide all the rods, reels, tackle, lures, as well as fishing licenses, and he’ll even clean and fillet your catch for free. Before you leave, just make sure you have your snacks and drinks.

After fishing in the Keys for 22 years, Captain Charles decided to make it his home fishing out in the ocean. You don't know what you might catch but it's always fun and putting people on the fish is exciting. The captain is also a chef who has worked professionally and he started a food truck barbecue business. He loves to cook and he offers his guests a catch-and-cook option. While his son and first mate Jay is cleaning the boat, Captain Charles will clean your catch and cook it for you. Whether you like it grilled, blackened, or fried, you'll have freshly cooked fish delivered to your hotel, campground, or wherever you're staying! The captain would be grateful if you tipped the first mate because the young man works hard to keep the boat pristine for you. See you soon and tight lines!
