    Groups over 6

    Call us for for Group Charters

    If you have a group of over six, please call us at (888) 336-1702. We are experts on planning large group and corporate fishing trips for groups of any size. The size of our fleet is unmatched by any other company.

    Due to federal regulations, most charter boats can take a maximum of six passengers. Regulations aside, it is difficult to have more than a few people fishing at a time, so we typically recommend chartering multiple boats. The biggest advantage to fishing from multiple boats is that each person's chances of catching a fish are much higher, not to mention you will be much more comfortable.

    VIP Fishing Tournament
    When we arrange group charters on multiple boats, we often arrange for a custom fishing tournament in which groups on each boat compete with one another for the biggest fish or the most fish. This leads to a fun, competitive atmosphere that unites teams and makes everyone in your group feel like they are part of one activity.

    • Included: Boat, guide, licenses, bait, ice
    • Not Included: Gratuity, you may bring your own food and drink
    • Common Fish: Tarpon, Snook, Permit, Jacks and more...
    Expert Opinion:steve-headshot-100x100 "Captain JP describes himself as "obsessed with fishing" and within a few minutes of speaking with him you'll understand exactly what he means. His 16' Zebra skiff is perfect for all types of inshore fishing and can access shallow areas few other boats can go. Every one of JP's trips is customized based on your preferences, which means you can target all different types of fish such as bonefish, tarpon, peacock bass and more. This boat is kept on a trailer and as a result can be launched at different fishing locations both in freshwater, saltwater, and the Florida Everglades. The captain will contact you upon booking to discuss recommended launch locations based on the season and your preferences."

    Why Choose This One:
     "A great option for inshore fishing on flats and bays. Quieter than an airboat on Everglades trips but cannot access some spots."

    Approximate Driving Times: Trip locations vary by season and your preference. The Captain will contact you prior to your trip to arrange a location.
