The BLUES CRUISE boat is a 218 DLV-Series Carolina Skiff, equipped with a 115 HP Suzuki Four-Stroke Engine and T-Top with integrated rod holders. The hull is designed to allow both shallow water fishing and adventures into deeper waters. There is plenty of storage space, large front and rear fishing decks, comfortable cushioned jump seats and a 70 quart insulated cooler on board for food and drinks.
BLUES CRUISE is owned and operated by Captain Jeff Griffith of Blues Cruise Charters, LLC. Jeff is a US Coast Guard licensed captain, an avid fisherman and also a guitar player for those that would like a real "blues cruise".
Fully Equipped Tackle
The boat is fully equipped with rod/reels, nets and tackle for your use. Bringing your own equipment is welcomed if you have a favorite rod & reel or lure. Saltwater fishing licenses are included.
Enjoy the fishing advantages the Garmin 74dv chartplotter/sonar combo can provide. Featuring a 7 in display with comprehensive mapping and clear scanning sonar to assist in finding the fish.
GPS Trolling Motor
A remote-controlled Minn Kota Riptide trolling motor allows the boat to enter shallow water and to approach the fish quietly. GPS features provide an anchor feature and programmable trolling.
Cast Net & Live Well
The skiff has an integrated live well on board to keep the bait fresh all day long. There is a 6 &10 ft cast net stored below deck for the experienced anglers that like to catch their own live bait.
The MOST IMPORTANT equipment on board is the safety equipment. BLUES CRUISE is fully equipped with U.S. COAST GUARD APPROVED safety gear including Type I Life Jackets, an FCC licensed and Coast Guard registered VHF radio, emergency flares, distress flag, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, and more. Each excursion begins with a Safety Briefing by the Captain.
