About
The Blue Heron Fleet was established in 1955 by Capt. Harry Nagel. The fleet has been family owned and operated with the third generation currently at the helm. Blue Heron offers excellent year round fishing at a great price. The two vessels are the largest and most comfortable in the area. Vessels are custom built aluminum drift fishers that meet and exceed the United States Coast Guard regulations. The cabins offer cushioned seating, settees for catering, and clean men's and ladies restrooms. The Vessels are equipped with state of the art navigation and fish finding equipment. We also are offering PRIVATE charter trips on our 35 foot Contender center console for up to six passengers. Both our locations are minutes from prime fishing grounds 20-40 minutes away depending on which hot spot is producing fish catches. Productive reefs (natural and artificial) exist in 50 feet through 200 feet of water. The Gulf Stream comes to its closest point of land around the Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets. All of our fishing 'catching' is done from ¼ mile to 3 miles from shore. Catches consist of Kingfish, Snapper, Grouper, Mahi-Mahi, Sailfish, Cobia, Barracuda, Sharks, False Albacore and Wahoo. The fare includes rod, reel, bait, tackle, and fishing license. The crews have years of experience ensuring your families safety and enjoyment. Two half day excursion departing daily. No reservations necessary, but you can book online at our website. Blue Heron specializes in private charters for family, business, and corporate events with the options of fishing or cruising.

It was an amazing experience. The crew was very helpful and accommodating. They all took the time to help everyone out from baiting our hooks, landing the fish, and even to take care of my girlfriend from her motion sickness. I personally enjoy meeting the entire crew and especially Ed. Will definitely do this trip again and highly recommend to everyone.

As a veteran on Veterans Day I made a reservation for my wife and I and we looked forward to this trip. Once boarding they told us to have our poles on one side and sit on the other side!?!? HOW CAN YOU HAVE ROOM TO FISH BUT NO ROOM TO SIT!?!? HOW? OVERBOOKING!!! Very unprofessional when asking why they didn’t ask the people by the poles to make room! The fact that they didn’t even ask this person to make room feels like discrimination!! My uncle was a mate on a fishing boat and (I’ve been out too many times to count) and never have I ever been told to sit other than where my poles were located! Got off and refunded! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED!!! THEY HAVE A RECORD OF OVERBOOKING AND HAVING LINES TWISTING!! AS WELL AS BEING RUDE!! Guy at the window was ok and professional but VERY UNPROFESSIONAL CAPTAIN AND MATES!

This is really two and a half hours fishing tops by the time you get out and set up on drifts. No problem with that. Crew trolls between spots so if they hook up and fight a fish patrons lose fishing time. Fine if you want to split up that fish between patrons or put a patron on that rod otherwise I would prefer my fishing time to catch something I can keep. My trip lost 20 minutes to that scenario. There were fish caught on boat and the staff is friendly and enthusiastic.

Best crew/captain. Thank you for a memorable experience with my 83 yo mother! It rained. She ended up inside. But the crew made her day! The professionalism beyond any boat I have EVER been on.

It was a few years since my last trip. Different mates than before, but both provided a very high level of service making the day very enjoyable. They keep the hooks baited, untangled lines and coached the fisherman on how to reel in the catch. Expert fish cleaning available for your catch.

Three of us went out on a 4 hour morning trip on the Blue Heron on Sunday 8/20/2023 and had a great time despite the weather. It started out raining pretty bad but once we started heading out cleared up although windy and a bit rough. The Captain and crew were amazing and wasted no time keeping bait on your rig and back in the water to get in maximum fishing time.
When we got back they offered to clean/filet the fish for everyone, and ice if needed for the trip home to keep everything fresh.

Thank you Captain Johnny and crew for a memorable trip.

First of all the captain and the crew with the exception of one young guy (I think his name was Jonathan, he's in the picture below) was extremely rude to everyone. Instead of helping us with our rods, they snatched them out of our hands and tried to do it for us. Not to mention that we didn't catch but maybe 6 fish in the 6 hours that we were there. Only 3 of the fish were edible and even those were very small. There were 10 people in our group so we were thinking we would catch way more than that. There was about 30 people on the boat and instead of allowing us to fish all around the boat, we had to ALL fish on one side of the boat. This made all of the lines get tangled which was a total crap show. Every time one of our lines went into the water, it got tangled up with everyone else's lines. By the time it was untangled, the captain told us it was time to go. We moved about 7 times to a new location and still didnt get any fish! The only good thing about this trip was that they put the bait on our hooks. Worst experience of deep sea fishing ever!
