Your trip starts in a modern 21-foot (6.5-meter) Sea Pro boat, specially built for shallow back country fishing. These boats are powered by 150-horsepower mercury outboards, and are fully equipped to ensure you enjoy a successful fishing adventure.
Each boat can accommodate from up to four guests.

Quietly approach the fish, precisely place your cast, and masterfully play the fish as it runs over the flats. Try your hand at landing your trophy fish - truly a memory to last a lifetime!
