Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Grey Ghost Fishing Charters
For the past 20 years, Captain Chris has plied the inner- and outer-shore waters surrounding Palm Beach. With a degree in marine affairs and ecosystems behind him, he has honed his knowledge and understanding of the region's 4,500 aquatic species that dwell in fishing grounds. There's not a lot about the seas that he doesn't know, and he shares it all with his passengers as he steers Grey Ghost Fishing Charters' 18-foot Dolphin boat. He welcomes all skill levels, able to pick prey and provide pointers suitable for novices or veterans. He particularly targets snook, tarpon, seatrout, red fish, and sharks while fishing, and hunts both day and night to track such a wide variety.
