The Offshore Hunter is a custom built 36’ Yellowfin Center Console fishing boat powered by Triple Yamaha 350HP engines. Without a doubt Yellowfin is one of the industry leaders in producing fishing boats, it has a flat deck which gives a full 360* unobstructed place to fish. The boat has been outfitted with the top of the line electronics from Garmin and Furuno 12” displays. There is a large t-top to protect you from the harsh Florida sun as well.The Inshore Hunter is a 21' Action Craft Coastal Bay built in SWFL. Designed as a large bay boat, it has a very shallow draft of just 12" letting us float over grass flats and to get to where the fish live. A large capacity live well will keep our live bait fresh all day and let you keep on catching fish!

We use top of the line equipment from Shimano and Accurate. There is a porta potty inside our console for the ladies and children. Fishing licenses are included for your trip.
