Boat Showcase


ClearVision Charters chooses each boat with Safety, Quality and Comfort in mind.  Bay boats with best all-around performance, on the flats and in the near-shore.

We showcase NauticStar boats, powered by the unmatched reliability and innovative performance of Yamaha Outboards.

Experience the most highly customizable private charter that Louisiana’s inshore waters has to offer.  Fishing, Cruising or Swamp Touring in style!

Storm Cell

The Storm Cell is a 23 foot, NauticStar 231 Hybrid, powered by a 200 Horse Power Yamaha VMax Super High Output (SHO). 

Unlike most inshore bay boats, the Storm Cell has a fully stocked ladies room for your convenience.  In addition, the oversized T-Top provides a break from Louisiana’s summertime temperatures.  This hybrid boat has extended free board (side walls) for full family safety, keeping little ones in and sea spray out.  Finally, we’ve incorporated Safe Floor’s non-slip technology, for sure footing, even in wet conditions.


With a top speed of 50+ miles per hour, the Storm Cell will allow for run and gun style fish hunting, on those tough days.  The 36 volt, 120 pound, Minnesota Riptide Ulterra trolling motor allow us to fish an entire area with great stealth and ease.  The dual, 10 foot Power Pole Blades allows for total control of boat positioning, once we’re on the fish.  

The 6 inch set-back, Atlas Jack Plate allow for fishing shallows of as little as 13 inches of water.  Both of the Storm Cell’s two live wells have been outfitted with aeration bubblers to keep bait-fish live and vibrant the entire trip.  Finally, forward and aft fishing chairs provide an unmatched level of comfort for fighting the big one!

Cruising & Touring

The entire bow section of the Storm Cell can be outfitted with extremely comfortable 3 inch, naugahyde leather padding.  Pop-out bolster padding provides a great back rest, while a picnic style bow table can comfortably accommodate up to 6 passengers.  Having a cup holder associated with every seat (forward and aft), makes for plenty of space to stretch out and relax.  You’ll also have Bluetooth access to 4 high definition JBL speakers, powered by Infinity Radio.

For our thrill seekers, we have a 3 man tube that is sure to please.  With an aft boarding ladder, fresh water wash-down/shower and private changing area, we’ve got ya covered.  For our explorers, we’ve got dolphins, gators, multiple bird species and small mammals to discover.  For our lovers, we have evening and/or overnight trips (to BridgeSide Marina at Grand Isle).  During Parties are allowed one 6 Pack of Beer, or one Bottle of Wine, per/person.  Hard alcohol is not permitted.

Captain "Rick"

My name is Captain Ramon “Rick” J Thompson, I was born and raised right here in New Orleans, LA. Growing up I spent countless hours learning, fishing and hunting the bayous of Venice, LA. While I’ve logged a lion’s share of fish, my most fond memories are the smell of salt in the air, having alligators destroy popping corks and swimming with porpoises in the distance. I often still hear my Dad saying, “Get‘em out of the water!” when I’d tell him that it felt like a big one on the line. I named this company “ClearVision Charters,” because my foremost desire is to allow patrons to see the bayou through the eyes that caused that child (a 10 year old me) to fall in love with Louisiana’s waterways. I am committed to providing the best possible experience for my guests every time we crank up.

Clear Vision Charters is amazing! Captain Rick Thompson is all about what u want your fishing experience to be with a great family values I brought my 3 year old son and captain took care of everyone on the boat with ease and took my son under his wing and got everyone on fish very knowledgeable about the area and where the fish are. I’ve been on multiple charters around the world and this was one of the best experiences I’ve had. If your in south Louisiana this is the charter I would recommend for anyone.  –Roy Sapp


Excellent fishing day. Service was excellent and caught some beautiful redfish. Captain Rick was very knowledgeable and professional. Would definitely make this trip again.  — Cabral Mitchner

All I can say is AWESOME. This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Fishing food and fun. My family and I have enjoyed Mr. Ricky on 2 separate occasions. He is patient and a great teacher for those who are just learning to fish. All we had to do was show up. He had fishing rods for the entire family (5) plus more. We have already booked our next adventure.  — Crystal Billups Lee
