making way at sea exploring the oceans body& soul

We traveled out 7 miles in calm ocean waters, always a treat, the preferred way to travel over the sometimes turbulent waters we can get this time of year. Its truly awesome to swim and hang out all day in nothing but a bathing suit and a pair of Costa sunglasses. My company today was awesome, as usual, they were swimming the reef which was a ball, spotting a sea turtle and all kinds of tropical fish. Someone said, Captain Chuck, we just were in Saint Croix, this place is way better. I love talk like this, my answer was, I know to bad everyone who comes and snorkels in Key West can't always see it's the best reef because they get stuck in the touristy trips, going to reefs with less diversity than mine .
The fishing was fun landed lots of fish. In the afternoon two young boys four and five caught their first fish, that was cool, they both were quite out spoken and had us laughing at some of their comments as they caught fish faster than some of my other fellow shipmates. The sun bore down on us hard today. Hurry on down and bring some sun block you will need it. Call me now and make a date. Lets have some over the top good times aboard the Delphine, soon.

perfect everything as we played in & on the atlantic

The water was clear and a bounty of fish were about, as we jetted about the reefs eyeing all kinds of happy reef dwellers like a huge grouper that swam with us for a bit. We saw a big lobster, he would be my dinner, if he wasn't safe in the protected sanctuary confines also saw schools of dragons and a couple of french angels.
We caught lots of fish the 3 young girls especially the youngest (10yrs old) were hooking up left and right. Later back at the dock a huge Goliath, a 200 plus pounder came up for some of our tarpon treats. Check out the video below, an awesome way to spend my X-mass morning .

I would like to thank my friends at Sea-life cameras, all my photography equipment was provided by them, if you want a awesome camera, with a great warranty, they can be your camera friend to

55 fish brought back to the dock windy sunny fun

My good friend Victoria came out for some fishing adventure, she loves to fish and it showed as she landed a fish a minute. It seemed like the peaceful ocean made for a surreal backdrop as we slapped on tanning oil or sun block and the sun bronzed us all wearing nothing but are bathing suits. We enjoying cool refreshments soaking in this winter day, December in Americas Caribbean. Come feel the warm sun on your body. We feed the tarpon until they were stuffed, they usually head south in the winter, but they feed so good here at my spot they never want to leave. One tarpon around 250 pounds splashed a girl good today covering her face, nothing like getting slapped by a massive tarpon tail.

shipmates says both days you cant buy this stuff

First thing this morning a man said, its the best day of the year, the man was coming in from the sea standing next to his boat as I headed to buy bait. I thought to myself, he's right, I waiting patently for 5 days for Wednesday's calm sea because the weather report said so. Yes it's true the stuff you see on my trips are so intense; mind, body, soul, sound, feel, its a rush of all these senses. I just love soring through the water weightless. Diving way down today the nurse sharks where fun, they looked at me while they were hooked on the ocean floor, oh no its Capt Chuck, frantically trying to yank out the embedded hooks tangling themselves on the jagged edges that protrude up from the bottom. Swimming down freeing up the two nurse sharks we caught today was fun. After freeing the line up I held on to it and one of the sharks took me on a ride. Come on out, you can try this exciting shark fun. As we looked down through the crystal clear water we freaked out astonished at the yellow jacks, wow are they fast, the reel spooled out line fast as hell today when a jack ate one of our yellow tail bait fish At the end of the day we had a nice bonnet head and a huge bucket of fish for my tarpon buds.

curios we dove the reef happly we landed lots of fish

We Traveled due south to my favorite spot, unleaded some eager folks to Americas Caribbean most magnificent locations. The temperature of the water was satisfying not to hot nor to cold just perfect. We swim in, it just bathing suits year round here no need for a wetsuit at this toasty Paradise.
It was a thrill every few minutes catching tons of fish, over ten each, later we took all the fish and feed the tarpons. We loved the aggressiveness of the tarpons, grabbing at our dangling fish, that were in our fingers. A barracuda grabbed a fish and gave everybody a thrill but we all kept feeding keeping our eyes watched out for the toothy barracuda who was about. Get some exercise, get ready for a swim at the reef and some rod reeling with me , call me 305 619 0731
