Corporate, international tourist and boy’s day out fishing boat charters

Trips are limited to four guests to ensure everyone gets ample individual fishing time and charters usually run from 8:30am till 5:30pm or 6:00pm. All voyages aboard the Striker are, of course, weather dependent. We’re happy to provide all gear for you if you aren’t a regular angler, but you’re welcome to bring your own if you’d prefer it.
