YES!! All reservations on our party boats must be made no later than 6:30PM on the day prior to your trip, this is due to the boat requiring a minimum passenger level in order to depart. In addition, we purposely reduced occupancy levels on both vessels, to alleviate overcrowding and further accommodate our customers.
Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled trip.
All Open Charter Tickets and fees include rod, reel, tackle, bait, and Federal Fishing License for the day. *TICKETED FEES DO NOT INCLUDE: gratuity for the Crew, optional fish cleaning services, food and beverage.
There are no food and beverage services/sales on board our vessels, or within our marina. We ask that our customers provide their own food and drink. Coolers are welcome.
You only need to bring a cooler to accommodate your food and drinks. We provide an iced fish box on the boat to store your catch during the day.
Our Half Day will fish the 4-12 mileage range, Super Half Day 10-15 miles, and our Full Day 20-25 miles.
No, it is first come first serve for the stern.
We fish offshore in the Atlantic Ocean. Depths range from 60’-100’. We anchor the boat and bottom fish on artificial reefs, wrecks, live bottom, and ledges.
Typical bottom fish that we catch include vermillion snapper, red snapper, gag grouper, trigger fish, black sea bass, amberjack, sharks, and cobia. Pelagic fish that have been caught include blackfin tuna, dolphin, kingfish, wahoo, and sailfish.
Yes! You are more than welcome to bring your own equipment. For the safety of our crew and our boats, braided line is not allowed. Please use Monofilament only. You are responsible for all tackle required for your equipment. We will not re-rig personal rods.
Yes, as long as your fish are within size and season, you’re keepin’! Our experienced Captain and Crew on board will assist you in landing and measuring your fish!
Fresh fillets can stay on ice in the cooler or be refrigerated for up to a week. If you are traveling back home by air, airlines do not allow coolers with ice on the aircraft. If you can, we suggest that you freeze the fillets, wrap them in newspaper and towels, put them in your luggage and they should still be frozen when you arrive home. Dry ice is also an option for air travel.
All we need is a length measurement of the fish, and we can either release the fish or bring it back to the dock to fillet. Our taxidermist uses the measurements to make a replica mount. Please ask one of the mates if you would like to get your fish mounted.
The Sea Love II and III both have bathrooms.
No, the boats do not have air conditioning.
If you have concerns regarding your health, please let our Captain and Crew know so we may better assist.
Every day is different and there is no typical amount. Sea Love II holds 60 passengers and the Sea Love III holds 30. The largest crowds tend to be on the weekends during the summer.
We catch plenty of fish year round. However, the change of seasons, when the water warms up (March-May) and when the water cools (September-November), is generally better.
