What is included in the charter?
Our full service guided charters include: fishing licenses, park permits, spin or fly gear, bait and lures, a cooler with ice, and photos of your catch.
Do I need to bring anything?
Depending on the weather we suggest you bring rain gear and/or polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, some beverages (we provide a cooler with ice), snacks/lunch, and a camera, in case you prefer to take your own pictures.
Do I need a fishing license before I book a charter?
No, you don’t need to obtain a fishing license or worry about parking permits, we’ve got you covered.
Do I need to buy bait?
Nope, we’ve got you covered on that too! We’ll provide you with bait and lures along with fishing licenses, park permits, spin or fly gear.
We are staying in the Orlando area, how long is the drive to the Cocoa Beach?
Depending on where you are staying in Orlando, the drive is about 45 min to 1 hour. It’s an easy straight drive through beautiful Florida nature down FL-528 E.
We are located just minutes away from the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach sandy beaches along with waterfront happy hours.
Feel free to refer to our list of local attractions for the full list of things to do in the area.
Is the price of the charter for each person or for the whole group?
It depends on the type of the charter you are looking to book.
Our nearshore, offshore, and deep sea charter fishing rates listed here are for 3 anglers, additional $50 per extra angler (4 Max). But, if needed we will gladly arrange additional boats for more than 4 anglers.
If you are considering a deep sea fishing charter on our 32ft Blackfin sport fishing boat, the price listed is for 1-6 people.
All of our charters are private, which means that you and your friends/family will be the only people on the boat enjoying the fishing trip, accompanied by our experienced captains, of course.
How far in advance should I make a reservation?
We encourage you to book your next adventure with us as early as possible. The latest you can book is 7 days prior to your charter date.
Can I pay for my charter online?
Absolutely. You may pay for your charter with a credit or debit card, as well as with cash or U.S. check. A $200 deposit for all Sonar boat trips (deep sea/offshore/shark fishing charters) is required within 7 days of reservation. For all other charters a $100 deposit is due within 7 days of reservation. Cancellations are accepted up to 7 days prior to charter date, otherwise the deposit will not be refunded. If you do not send a deposit within 7 days, you are not confirmed and is subject to re-booking.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations are accepted up to 7 days prior to charter date. If you decide to cancel your booking less than a week in advance, a $100 deposit will not be refunded. There is no cost to client for cancellation made by the Captain due to poor/unsafe weather conditions or other reasons at his discretion. If you do not send a deposit within 7 days, you are not confirmed and your day is subject to re-booking.
Do you guarantee that we will catch fish?
We always strive to do our best, and guarantee that you will have a great time out on the water with us. However, we cannot promise that fish will always be biting. But, we can assure you that our captains have years of fishing experience, and if we don’t catch fish that means that no one else is having luck catching anything that day either.
Can we bring our kids on the fishing trip?
Absolutely! All of our fishing charters are family friendly, and kids love exploring the ocean, as well as calm waters of the Florida’s beautiful lagoons. Our fishing trips are a great adventure for anglers of any age or experience level!
What charter should I choose if we have young children?
It depends on how you are looking to spend a day on the water. Unfortunately, when the ocean is rough, you and your children might experience motion sickness, which might ruin the joy of the trip. Thus, an inshore fishing charter might be the best option during big waves. Your kids will be able to catch different types of fun and exciting fish while cruising through beautiful mangroves and watching herons, dolphins, stingrays, and manatees in their habitats.
Another great option for kids is shark fishing charters as the distance to the fishing grounds is quite a short trip. It’s an action-packed charter that will provide a lifetime memory for the whole family.
