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.

default

The Inshore Hunter is a Pathfinder 2500 Hybrid. Designed to be a comfortable ride for both inshore and nearshore trips. Powered by a 300 horsepower Yamaha, a fasts cruise gets us to the fishing spots faster! Equipped with seating all around, it can get you to the fishing spots or the beautiful beaches of Cayo Costa.

What we Provide

There is a large Yeti cooler loaded with ice on board for all your food and drinks for your day on the water. All tackle, and fishing rods are included. 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.

Safety Equipment

We have gone above and beyond the recommended safety gear the USCG suggests. On board are ample lifejackets for children and adults, EPIRB, Satellite Phone, and a Life raft with up to date certification from the Manufacturer.

Forbidden Items

We have a strict no glass policy on the vessel. Glass can break and we only allow aluminum cans or bottles aboard. No illegal substances. Spray sunscreen is also not allowed, it can turn the deck slippery will discolor the boat as well. Most devices now days have GPS units built into them, Cell phones, Gopros, some digital cameras. You may bring some devices onboard, they must be cleared by the Captain and Crew. Cell phones need to be turned off, there is no signal beyond 15 miles offshore thats why we have a Satellite phone incase there is an emergency.
