The Texas Gulf Coast is loaded with guides to choose from, but we are the best at customer service and putting you on the fish. Our charter boats are extremely safe and exceeds all U.S. Coast Guard regulations. We have large boats that serve a special purpose of getting your family and group out fishing.

The party boats we have are two of the nicest on the Texas coast. We have people often commenting on how good of a time they had while fishing with us. We really enjoy showing off our Galveston fishing boats. Our catamaran charter boat is one smooth riding boat. The twin hull allows for an exceptionally smooth ride offshore to where the big fish live. This boat is our flagship and is named the Captain John. It’s named after Captain Johnny Williams’ late father, Captain John Williams. It is 75′ long and 27 feet wide. He is stable, comfortable and ready to take you offshore on a fishing charter of a lifetime.

Captain John

The newest and fastest charter boat in Galveston,Texas has arrived at Pier 19.  The Captain John is the premier offshore, deep sea fishing party boat on the Texas coast.  Captain John is owned and operated by Captain Johnny Williams of Williams Party Boats in historic Galveston.  She is a modern marvel and is fully inspected by the United States Coast Guard safety team that allows the Captain John to run as far as 200 miles offshore to where the big fish live.

The Captain John charter boat is 75 feet long and is 27 feet wide.  She has a catamaran hull style and is made out of space age aluminum.  It is the fastest and most modern party fishing boat in Texas.  She cruises at a whopping 25 miles per hour.  This means that you spend more time fishing and less time riding.

The catamaran style hull is the envy of the other charter fishing fleets operating in the Gulf of Mexico.  She has an extended operating range can can accomodate up to 83 passengers on day trips and up to 40 passengers on overnight fishing charters.  The best thing about the Captain John Party Boat is the room you have while aboard.  The massive hull design, combined with plenty of fishing space, leaves nothing to be desired.
