GENERAL INFORMATION  These trips are scheduled monthly depending on the needs and wishes of the members and the availability of the fishing vessel.  Trips are booked on the “Haf N Haf”, a 35’ Henriques Main Coaster Sportfisherman.  This vessel is owned and operated by Captain Doug McCarver , a local area firefighter who spends his spare time fishing the blue waters of the Atlantic in search of Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, Dolphin, Tuna, Kingfish, Barracuda, Shark, Grouper, Snapper, and many other sport fish that happen along.

The Haf N Haf is a flybridge style fishing vessel with a fully enclosed salon, with a refrigerator,  and full size head (bathroom), She cruises at 18 knots and is always kept in a clean and neat condition.  All bait, tackle and ice is furnished.  Bring your own lunch and drinks and you may use the refrigerator for storage.  Bring larger coolers to leave in the car to carry the fish home.  No fishing license is required for this trip.

This vessel is commonly referred to as a “6-Pack” which means that it carries a maximum of six passengers plus the crew.  It is moored at the east end of the Port Orange Bridge at the “Village Down Under”, about 10 miles south of Daytona Beach, and sails out of Ponce Inlet.  Car pooling is used and the location and time for leaving the villages is established for each trip. Trips are 10 hours and normally run from 7:00am to 5:00pm.  Cost of the trip varies, but usually will not be scheduled unless the full six passengers have signed up.  Cost is then shared equally by all.  Cost varies with length of trip, and includes tips and fish cleaning, although an additional tip is is certainly recommended when a good day was had by all.  It should be noted that this price is available only on trips scheduled through the Villages Deep Sea Fishing Club.

TRIPS HAVE BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED DUE TO MECHANICAL PROBLEMS WITH THE VESSEL.
