Our Charter Boat

Island Queen II

The Island Queen II FishingThe Island Queen II was once the 'Janey Briscoe' a 9-Car Ferry that serviced the Port Aransas Ferry System until the advent of the 20-Car ferries.

The Island Queen II is a 64 ft x 33 ft converted ferry boat. She is a large comfortable platform to spend an afternoon 'wetting a hook'. Bring the whole family for a morning, afternoon, or evening fishing trip in the waters surrounding Port Aransas.

The Island Queen II is also available for school trips, weddings, corporate outings, family reunions, funerals and a host of other events. All events can be catered, and entertainment can also be arranged.

We fish the local inshore waters on the jetties, channels and bay.

For non-fisherman we have an upper observation/sun deck. You can see dolphins on your next trip from a great vantage point, or just watch the fisherman below.

We have large clean restrooms, and feel free to bring drinks & snacks for your trip. Ice chests are welcome and we supply your rod, reel, bait and tackle. The captain will take you to several "hot spots" during your three-hour or four-hour fishing trip and the deckhands can assist you with baiting your hook and netting your catch. They can give fishing tips and instructions and turn even the most 'novice' individual into a successful fisherman.

Come aboard the Island Queen II for an unforgettable fishing adventure! Consider a private charter on the Island Queen II. Our large deck space is ideal for private parties, businesses, family gatherings and group fishing trips. The Island Queen II is licensed for up to 100 passengers and catering is available.
