Our boats and motors range from 14 feet to 18 feet aluminum boats and 15-25 horsepower outboard motors. At our base camp we have pontoon boats for the more relaxed fisherman. Experienced local guides are available to help you locate that special fishing hole, show you the various fishing techniques and help you prepare and enjoy a delicious shore lunch.
