For over 30 years, Captain Ricky McGaffey has been fishing the waters of Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Because Captain Ricky is a licensed Coast Guard Captain, you can rest assured that you and your family will have a great trip knowing you are in the capable hands of a very experienced fishing guide.

Enjoy your day on the water aboard Capt. Ricky’s Contender 36’ Fish Around. A boat powerful enough that it slices through the roughest wave like a hot knife through butter, yet provides you an exceedingly dry ride surrounded by some comforts from home, including a full galley (kitchen) and an enclosed full head (bathroom) below.
