who are we?

Blue Runner Charters features 4, 6 and 8 Hour trips aboard The Blue Runner -- a custom built 31' Morgan Sportfisher loaded with all the tackle you need for a great day of fishing.

The Blue Runner features dependable diesel power, a clean restroom, the latest communication and fish finding electronics, and a spacious 12' beam for lots of fishing room and stability, plus lots of shade if you need it. All U.S.C.G. safety equipment is on board.

We can take up to 6 people for one low price and all licenses, tackle, bait and ice are provided at no extra charge. We will clean and prepare your catch after the trip and you might even want one of Marco's local restaurants to cook it for your lunch or dinner.

Children Welcome ~
Lots of Action!


The Blue Runner is a family friendly charter boat and we will take the time to teach everyone who wants to learn, how to enjoy a lifetime of fishing fun.
