Combat Veteran Operated
Come fish with us!
And, give back to disabled veterans.
Our fishing charters provide a chance to tangle with red snapper, blackfin tuna, mahi-mahi, wahoo, and more. We put you in the middle of the action on Knotty Veteran, our 2019 Sea Fox 288 Commander.
Knotty Veteran is equipped with quality gear and everything you need for a successful day of fishing. With our local knowledge of these famed waters throughout the fishing season, you'll experience a trip that will have lasting memories.
We also take pride in supporting our veterans. We set aside 10 percent profits from every paid charter to organize 100 percent free disabled veterans fishing trips. We work diligently with local organizations to get support for our mission to put a smile on veterans’ faces who endure daily physical, emotional and at times mental struggles or challenges.

Why We're Dedicated to Gifting Disabled Veteran Trips
Soldiers leaving the military very suddenly lose their sense of belonging and purpose. They have been a part of a unit that shares extreme experiences and who are bonded by their mission. All of that camaraderie vanishes the moment you are discharged. Disabled veterans wake up and their world is suddenly upside down. The result is that these once-active team-members start isolating themselves, pushing people away--including close family members and friends. The issue is compounded for disabled veterans who cannot as easily reintegrate back into daily life.
The Power of Community and Offshore Activity
For disabled veterans, a trip out to sea takes them away from the isolating environment of their home, and the new experience buoys them—lifts their spirits and gives them confidence. Additionally, joining other disabled veterans provides the camaraderie they’ve been missing. It's important to socialize with others that have experienced similar extraordinary situations.
This one day on the ocean with their community members starts a cascade effect whereby they realize they aren’t alone, can talk about shared experiences, and slowly begin to feel like they can connect with fellow veterans, and eventually the people closest to them.
