About Your Trip

This is a fishing trip unlike any other. When you get off the dock with Captain Joseph, you'll be stepping into more than fifty years of legendary fishing history. The fine vessel you'll be taking out is no ordinary boat, but the boat that initially inspired the bestselling book, "Jaws" and the world-famous film that followed. Your Captain was a mate on that boat when it landed the still-standing world-record Great White Shark—a 3,427 pound monster fish that remains the largest fish of any species ever landed on a rod and reel.

About Your Guide  Certified Damn Good Guide

Captain Joseph is not your ordinary charter operator. This man has been on the sea his whole life; he started out as a mate on the boat that inspired the world-famous "Jaws" book and film at the age of 8. Now the Captain at age 72, he has been on this boat for over 64 years! He now operates his charters as a charity that benefits disabled veterans. The story of this charter is full of rich nautical history, including world-record catches, a rescue at sea, innovations in fishing equipment, habitat research, and early experiments in underwater photography and development of the shark cage. A day on the water, catching sharks with Captain Joe, will be a day to remember.

Our trip was wonderful. We caught a lot of Spanish mackerel. Most undersized, had to throw back. Caught a Tuna(kept) and lizardfish-threw him back. Great family experience! First mate James was great the whole day. Enjoyed Captain Joe’s humor. Thanks for the memories!

Caught over 27 Spanish Mackerel in about 4 hours. I would highly recommend this boat to everyone that wants to catch fish. Captain knew where the fish were and put them right on top of them.
