EGA Fishing Charters Inc. is a USMC Veteran owned and Operated Charter fishing vessel also known as egafishjapan.com we offer free fishing charters, and all fishing gear to all Active duty service members of any American military branch and their family members serving overseas we also offer any Active duty military member and or Veteran that visit Japan the same free fishing charter trips.
We actually started the fishing charters 3 yrs ago using our own savings to fund the operation until recently when we decided to become a legal Non Profit organazation as of May 11, 2020 under IRS Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3) which also allow donors the opportunity to deduct any contributions they make to our Non Profit the ability under IRC Section 170, we are now considered a public charity.
Our Mission is to provide our American Service members serving or visiting abroad a recreational fishing experiences without having to worry about those looking to rob them by charging them ridiculous fees for trips & ridiculous fees for rental gear which we provide for free to our military members, to give these young military personnel a stress free enviroment to enjoy sometime off the base on the water fishing & enjoying the beautiful scenery , great fishing getting them out of the barracks and out of bar rooms, we also use this time on the water with each group to bring awarness to suicide prevention, which is unfortunately an increasing problem with our Military & Veteran Communities today!
Your Donation will help us to continue our services, with your help each charter of 8 fish for (8 to 9hrs each trip) also the member that catches the catch of the day is given a brand new name brand fishing rod & reel combo as a prize to encourage friendly compitition, every member is given an ega fish japan tshirt, and provided bottled water and food during trip. We also take pride in teaching those that do not have any fishing experiences. (Surprisingly many have never fished before)
We are asking for your donations so we can maintain and continue our services which we have been providing for 3 yrs now with our own funding, with your help we can continue to bring great joy to a young service member serving his/her first tour away from home all the way up to the highest ranking military member on his/her 5th tour, we will continuously post pictures so donors will see the good work we are doing. We are also seeking sponsers to participate in our mission.
