American Owner/Captain John will make sure all your needs are met on this 32 foot Ocean Master boat aptly named Stress Reeliever. We fish for all species found in this area, but specialize in Pacific Sailfish and Marlin. We offer all the newest in technology and gear on the boat, and have a complete set of Penn International Reels to get your big fish to the boat! Our electronics include all high end Furuno components, and we have a 2010 Cummins Diesel pushing us out to where the fish are!

We've fished all over the world, and this was the best experience we've ever had! We caught trophy-size Dorado, Tuna and saw a ton of dolphins and sailfish jumping. Great time with Junior and Pepe! Look no further for your fishing charter!!
