We are planning to run 7 Texas Pelagic trips in 2015 and we are currently taking reservations. Sign-up soon while spaces remain.


On the longer 16 hour trips our goal is to get out to the “Camel’s Head”. Texas Pelagic trips have never been to this dramatic underwater salt dome. It rises over 2,800 ft from the surrounding sea floor at depths of 5,000′ to about 2,200′, So who knows what could be found out there? 

It really helps us to know far in advance of the trips if we are going to have enough people to make the minimum number needed to cover the charter cost. So we are offering an incentive “Early Bird Fare” if you sign up and make payment prior to 3 months in advance of the trip date.
