Overview
More
We are a family owned and operated private fishing charter company. We are state and federally licensed and permitted to operate a fully legal charter fishing bushiness in the Gulf of Mexico. We offer everything from a half day Bay trip to Offshore and blue water Charters. All our boats are over 30' with plenty room for up to 6 people. We have multiple boats for large groups, bachelor party's and corporate events. We also love to take kids fishing and see the fun and excitement they experience when they catch that first big fish. All our Captains are licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and by the State of Texas. We are also fully insured. We would love to spend a day on the water with you and get you hooked up on a big fish!

We had a great time fishing with Wave Dancer. The water was rough and the fishing was difficult but we still caught fish. Great guys and I will be back to fish again.

The Captain Gunnar put us on some really great fish. We were absolutely hammering some really large Black drums. If you are looking for alot of action with some high quality fish I recommend booking through these guys.
