upgraded bertrams

Tropic Star Lodge is currently working on upgrading the entire fleet of Bertrams. This is a massive undertaking for our -in-house workshop: but the results are breathtaking. The upgraded Bertrams are more comfortable, quieter, faster and more fuel-efficient from their predecessors. We currently have 5 upgrade vessels available.

fishing school testimonial

Our 1st inshore fishing seminar was a huge success. We’ve opened up bookings for next year and space is filling up fast. Tropic Star Lodge is excited to be holding our 2nd Inshore fishing school, where you can fish with Professional anglers on your boat and have lessons and lectures on some of the tips and tactics for inshore fishing. We will be holding classes on knot tying, casting, patterning fish, and tackle selection and other topics during the four days of fishing and learning. Captains J.P DeRose, Bo Johnson, Bear Holman, Travis Holman and Richard White will be fishing with different boats each day.
