A Fishing Captain With A Lifetime of Experience
Captain Shawn Safris
The Charter is operated by Captain Shawn, who is often found guiding his friends and clients through the beautiful waters of South Florida. Captain Shawn is known for his obsession for catching fish, ocean conservation and most notably his sense of humor.
First Mate Chris
Based out of Pompano Beach Florida, Captain Shawn who is originally from New Jersey and his First Mate Chris from Wilmington NC, have teamed up to provide an offshore experience unlike any other fishing charter on the water. Captain Shawn recently upgraded the charter vessel he runs on a daily basis that provides his clients with more room and comfort due to the addition of the appropriately named fishing vessel “Shakedown“.
The new vessel continues the unmistakable positive vibes created when starting The Grateful Dead themed charter business while running his vessel that was built by Grady White which he dubbed Gradyful.
After his business began to grow and the desire to accommodate more trips he upgraded to a 32 ft fishing vessel powered by twin 350 hp turbo diesel inboard engines that now set the stage for an intense action packed adventure that is unmatched by any other charter on the water. Captain Shawn met his First Mate Chris in March of 2021 when Chris filled in for a mutual friend which instantly created an unmistakable friendship and respect that when working together, clients experience an entertaining and stunning presentation of over 50 years of combined offshore experience.
Together their knowledge allows them to give clients the chance to target a wide range of saltwater fish that by just simply watching them work together to catch fish is quite remarkable to witness.
Nothing can prepare you for what you can expect when you book a trip from the crude humor of Captain Shawn and his passionate dedication that allows him to find the fish to the fine details and time in which his First Mate Chris takes to explain whenever any angler is interested in the knowledge and understanding of the many methods he uses after the previous 15 years he spent working in the commercial fishing industry.
Together they provide everlasting memories from the experience they provide from the humorous jokes and uncontrollable laughter that begins as soon as you step on board to the extensive safety precautions that they make you aware of and of course a fishing trip that always leaves their clients feeling Gradyful.
