Overview
More
The Blue Heron Fleet was established in 1955 by Capt. Harry Nagel. The fleet has been family owned and operated with the third generation currently at the helm. Blue Heron offers excellent year round fishing at a great price. The two vessels are the largest and most comfortable in the area. Vessels are custom built aluminum drift fishers that meet and exceed the United States Coast Guard regulations. The cabins offer cushioned seating, settees for catering, and clean men's and ladies restrooms. The Vessels are equipped with state of the art navigation and fish finding equipment. We also are offering PRIVATE charter trips on our 35 foot Contender center console for up to six passengers. Both our locations are minutes from prime fishing grounds 20-40 minutes away depending on which hot spot is producing fish catches. Productive reefs (natural and artificial) exist in 50 feet through 200 feet of water. The Gulf Stream comes to its closest point of land around the Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets. All of our fishing 'catching' is done from ¼ mile to 3 miles from shore. Catches consist of Kingfish, Snapper, Grouper, Mahi-Mahi, Sailfish, Cobia, Barracuda, Sharks, False Albacore and Wahoo. The fare includes rod, reel, bait, tackle, and fishing license. The crews have years of experience ensuring your families safety and enjoyment. Two half day excursion departing daily. No reservations necessary, but you can book online at our website. Blue Heron specializes in private charters for family, business, and corporate events with the options of fishing or cruising.

This boat uses drift fishing so customers can only fish on one side of the boat. You are cramped together and the crew spends most its time untangling lines. They stayed way too long on the first site with very few bites before trying a...More

The best part of the trip was actually catching snapper and kingfish despite tangling lines with fellow fishing folks. If you are positioned on the side of the Blue Heron, you are standing shoulder to shoulder and your line will inevitably become entangled with others.This...More

First time deep sea fishing. We had a great time even. The Blue Heron fishing crew were awesome. They did not make you feel uncomfortable. Excellent customer service. I would come back to them again, if we were ever visiting west palm beach.

Having too many people in just one side of the boat fishing was a disaster. Lines were tangling with each other. In a four hour fishing we were able to draw our line 7 times and our lines tangled with other lines at least 4...More

Boat was overbooked, with about 45 people crammed on one side of the vessel. Not permitted to use other side of boat. Not an avid fisherman but the bait seemed to be of good quality. Boat left the dock late. For a 4 hr morning...More
