A FERRY THAT TAKES YOU ON AWESOME FISHING TRIPS
The Island Queen was once the Janey Briscoe, a nine-car boat that serviced the Port Aransas Ferry System until the advent of the 20-car ferries. We then converted it into a 64 ft. x 33 ft. ferryboat with a large platform to spend an afternoon wetting a hook with your family and friends.
We fish the local inshore waters on the jetties, channels, and bay. Our reliable team will supply your rod, reel, bat, and tackle, or you can bring your own. During your trip, we will take you to various hot spots and assist you in catching fish by giving tips and instructions.
If you are not interested in fishing, we have an upper observation or sun deck for you. Feel free to watch the dolphins or the people fishing below from a great vantage point while drinking or eating snacks.
We have large clean restrooms and accept all credit cards. Our team also offers half the price for children aged 12 and below.
THE MORE THE MERRIER
With a ferryboat that is licensed for up to 100 passengers, you can enjoy a morning, afternoon, or evening fishing trip with friends and family. We will also cater all events and arrange entertainment for you. Our large deck space is perfect for any private parties, such as:
CUSTOM BOAT FOR SMOOTH EXPERIENCES ON THE WATER
Experience the beauty of nature aboard The Mustang and know more about our boat:
The Mustang is a three-hull tour boat custom-built for a smooth experience on the water. It is a 65-foot boat capable of holding up to 100 passengers. Two large decks provide plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the ride.
The upper deck sports open views on all sides, which provides an excellent location to view the dolphins or flying birds. Or you can ride with the captain on the top deck to experience the thrill of being in control of this awesome vessel.
The lower level is spacious and mostly under covers. It is designed with a built-in touch tank in the back, which is used to see animals caught in the trawl nets up-close. Plenty of shady and protected areas make it a great place to sit out of the sun and wind and still see the view. The bow provides sitting areas to watch what’s ahead, which is where the dolphins love to play.
The mustang is designed for groups of any size or age range. Whether you have a school group or a business incentive event, the mustang is ideal. You can have formal catering or just a simple picnic on the water.
