The Atlantic Ocean with its myriad of game fish is among the top sports fishing destinations world-wide, particularly the waters surrounding Jacksonville. The Gulf Stream current is a migratory route for all manner of fish and it passes close to shore, bringing them within a mile or two from the coast. Anglers delight in catching fish such as swordfish, blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, shark, dolphin, tuna, grouper, snapper and wahoo with fantastic regularity. There is simply no feeling to describe any of these fish once hooked on your line. The fight is powerful and extremely satisfying.
Our Jacksonville Fishing Charters have numerous fishing yachts in our fleet, and they are all clean, fast and reliable – having surpassed all required safety regulations. They are also outfitted with tournament grade equipment of the latest and highest quality, which you can use to target any fish swimming off the coast. Our captains and crews all specialize in catching the variety of game fish on offer and they are happy to share their expertise with every angler onboard. They will show you exactly how to catch them and where they can be found. Let us know if there is a specific fish or technique that you wish to catch or use. Our charters are private and can be customized to ensure the ultimate fishing experience for you.
While most people are out catching fish off the coast, there are many other activities that you can enjoy on your visit to Jacksonville. Warm weather, sunny days, stunning blue water and beautiful sandy beaches get most people outdoors. Often they are found hiking, swimming, sunbathing, rollerblading, canoeing, skiing, diving, snorkelling and sipping cocktails on the beach. Many shops, restaurants, bars, spas, nature trails, theatres, museums, galleries, theme parks, wildlife sanctuaries and golfing estates will keep you entertained. We strongly recommend visiting the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, Friendship Fountain, Jacksonville Landing and Riverwalks, Museum of Science and History, Bryan Gooding Planetarium, Maritime Museum, Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens and Adventure Landing.

Fishing Boats In Jacksonville
As your personal fishing concierge, VIP fishing charters can arrange fishing trips on any type of fishing boats in Jacksonville, including:
|Length||40 - 50 feet|
|Sportfish type boats are the quintessential fishing machines. They are designed for speed and seaworthiness in a variety of conditions. The traditional sportfish design consists of a long bow, followed by the cabin, and behind it a large fishing area. Over the cabin is the "flybridge" where the captain steers from. Some sportfish have a tower above the flybridge, which is useful for spotting certain types of fish.|
Luxury Fishing Yacht
|Length||55 - 75 ft|
|Max Passengers||6 or 12|
|Our line of luxury sportfishing yachts are for discriminating anglers who wish to fish aboard multi-million dollar yachts. These boats are either brand new or recently refit. Their design is similar to our standard sportfish, except they are much larger and are finished to megayacht standards. Our luxury sportfishing yachts feature exquisite interior and exterior spaces and make a statement everywhere they travel.|
|Length||30 - 45 ft|
|Express style sportfish are similar to standard sportfish in design, but instead of having a salon midship, there is an open outdoor seating area and steering station. The advantage is that everyone is one the same level. On the other hand, the express design limits interior space, so it is more appropriate for groups that like to be outside. There is a small air conditioned cabin and bathroom below.|
Flats Fishing, Fly Fishing,
Bay Fishing Boats
|Type||Flats Fishing Boat|
|Length||15 - 25 ft|
|Max Passengers||3 (2 adults)|
|Flats fishing, fly fishing, and bayfishing boats are small boats with low freeboard designed for maximum speed and agility. They are designed to operate in very shallow water, which enables anglers aboard these boats to access areas most boats would go aground. Because of their small size, these boats are not ideal for large groups an can typically only accomodate two adults.
