Catch your own fish

Want to experience the surrounding waters? Join us for a great deep-sea fishing experience and catch your own dinner! Our Driftwood Charter yacht is available daily for fishing and fun. After a day of fishing, we will arrange a table for you at the Driftwood Restaurant where you can enjoy your fresh catch just the way you like it.
