Gecko Sport Fishing

The Gecko is a 46' Custom Built Carolina Sport Fisher. It is a "fish-catching-machine" with powerful twin engine diesels and a Carolina flared hull for a dry ride. You will spend less time boat riding and more time actually fishing. Relax in the salon or ride on the bridge as Gecko speeds offshore to catch yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, blackfin tuna, wahoo, mahi, sailfish and white marlin. You might even get your chance of a lifetime by hooking up with the boss of the offshore waters, a magnificent blue marlin.

Gecko is fully equipped with latest tackle, electronics and safety gear including: GPS, Radar, Loran, Fishfinders, VHF Radios, Epirbs, etc. While fishing on the Gecko you will not need to purchase a fishing license because we supply that with our blanket charter fishing license.

Guests aboard the Gecko are supplied with everything they will need for a successful fishing trip. We supply the boat, tackle, fresh bait and license. But, don't forget to bring your own drinks and snacks. Read more about the details here on our Contact/FAQ page.
