Miami Boat Passenger Limit

Written by Capt. Noah on Thursday, 30 May 2013. Posted in Fishing Boats

Unfortunately, unless a vessel in Miami is authorized to carry more than six passengers by the United States Coast Guard, it may not. There are very few fishing boats that can comfortably transport more than six people and safety is the main priority. USCG safety regulations are in place for good reasons and our Miami Fishing Charters comply with them at all times.

This does not mean that groups consisting of more than six people are unable to experience deep sea fishing off the coast of Miami. We have a great deal of experience with accommodating large groups on our Miami Fishing Charters. There are two choices available to you and we tell you about each of them below:

Head boats, or party boats, are the first option. These boats are bigger than average and can transport more people. We have a 45ft Stapleton in our Miami fishing fleet that is allowed to carry over twenty people, and it does so comfortably. These types of boats typically take everyone drift fishing, which is very exciting. Once everyone is onboard, we take them out to sea where their engines are switched off and the boat is left to drift. Your group can throw their lines over the side and catch tasty, powerful fish such as grouper, snapper, jacks and various sea basses. There is a downside to this option though. Due to the size of the boat and the fact that it is drifting in the water, you will not be able to chase truly exhilarating big game fish offshore. The techniques required to catch them are also impossible to use when fishing this way.

Sportfish boats are the second option. Our Miami fishing fleet has a multitude of these smaller boats on offer and your group can split up and go out on several of them. These boats will allow you to get farther offshore where you can utilize specialized techniques to catch the most thrilling fish of all. These include mahi-mahi, swordfish, sailfish, shark, tuna, wahoo, kingfish and many others. The ability to get further from shore opens up so many options for you to catch large numbers of absolutely fascinating fish. There is a radio on every boat that keeps your group in constant contact, and we have fun and exciting activities to keep your group feeling as one. Our mini fishing tournament is easily the most popular and it involves groups competing against each other from different boats. Usually the goal is to catch the biggest fish, the most fish or a particular species of fish.

If you do not wish to split your group up then we can customize the perfect drift fishing charter for your group in Miami. We recommend choosing the sportfish option if you can. Many more fish can be caught and the experience is far more thrilling. Either way, your Miami Fishing Charter will be an adventure you will remember.

Call today to book your Group Fishing Charter in Miami and experience the adrenalin.

Miami Mahi Fishing

Miami Mahi Fishing

Miami mahi fishing has been red hot over the last couple of months.  We've seen the average size of the mahi really increase over the last few weeks.  Captain Doug is pictured here catching two beautiful mahi off the coast of Miami.  These fish were caught near some floating debris.  Our captains love to fish for mahi near floating debris.  This new storm Sandy should produce quite a bit of floating debris and mahi fishing in Miami should be great after it leaves Florida.

Luxury Fishing Charter on a 65' Viking Sportfish

Written by Capt. Noah on Monday, 08 October 2012. Posted in Fishing Boats

Luxury Fishing Charter on a 65' Viking Sportfish
  • Shaded fishing cockpit to keep you cool
  • Spacious, air-conditioned salon perfect for entertaining
  • All inclusive pricing is easy for corporate clients on expense accounts

OK, I'll admit it, I'm a boat snob. I've grown up on boats, my family is in the marine business, and I've seen a lot of awesome boats ranging from small, nimble sailing boats to 450 foot private mega yachts. As such, it takes something a little extra to get me excited. When I first saw the 65' Viking "Platinum Edition" sport fishing yacht my heart started racing faster, I thought could this be the ultimate fishing yacht for our VIP corporate clients ?

"What does the platinum edition mean?" I asked the captain.

"You'll see."

Starting from the stern, the fishing cockpit is huge. It is thoughtfully covered with a large top to keep you cool and shaded from the beating Florida sun. Forward of the cockpit there's mezzanine seating so guests that aren't fishing can get a birds eye view of all the action.

The flybridge offers spectacular views and features another huge space for guests to relax and lounge in true VIP comfort. The helm features a brand new state of the art electronics and navigation package giving the captain an unfair advantage to find where the fish are hiding. The bridge deck is high and dry and is truly the place to be on the ride out.

Just forward of the fishing cockpit you'll find the beautifully appointed main salon where there's a ton of space for entertaining. There's a large leather sofa, flat screen TV, dining area and galley (kitchen).

Down a flight of stairs are three staterooms, accommodations include a huge master stateroom which features a private den appointed with a leather couch, book shelves and a flat screen TV. The second spacious stateroom is to starboard and is equipped with another private head. Forward is the third stateroom offering comfy V berth accommodations.

Many of our clients want and need more then just a fishing boat when they're entertaining their guests and this magnificent sport fishing yacht is the perfect platform to do just that, mission accomplished!

As for the fishing, the captain and crew have been fishing the beautiful gulf stream waters off South Florida, the Bahamas and the fabulous Florida Keys for their entire lives and have been professional captains for decades. They both have great personalities and are comfortable dealing with VIPs and celebrities.

On a typical trip, expect to catch anything from sailfish, swordfish, tuna, mahi, kingfish, wahoo and more. Your crew will happily clean, fillet and package your catch and if you'd like, they can even have one of our local waterside restaurants prepare dinner where you can dine on your catch of the day (what a great way to end your day of corporate entertaining).

As I'm writing this article the yacht is completing a refit, where additional upgrades to the mechanical equipment are being made and she is getting fresh bottom paint and top to bottom detailing. It's hard to imagine that this yacht could be any nicer, but the captain and owner have high standards, which frankly is what we demand for yachts of this level.

One of the most exciting things about this sport fishing yacht is the charter price. Typically, yacht charters are quoted with a base price plus crew fees, catering and all the other expenses associated with chartering. Our corporate clients particularly those who are utilizing expense accounts need to have an all in price. We've worked with the owner to create an "all inclusive" price that includes not only the boat and crew, but also includes a continental breakfast and lunch service as well as ice cold beer bottled water and soft drinks. But don't worry, we can accomodate special requests such as additional catering with server, ground transportation and even a video photographer to capture your clients and guests sport fishing adventure.

Our all inclusive price is for up to eight hours and can be billed in advance right to your credit card. There's a twenty mile maximum range, which is more than adequate for most trips.

The boat is docked in Aventura, Florida, but can easily pickup guests at other marinas and hotels from Fort Lauderdale to Miami (additional delivery and/or landing fees, may apply).

VIDEO: Shark Fishing in Miami, FL

Written by Capt. Noah on Wednesday, 05 September 2012. Posted in Fishing Photos & Videos

Check out this great video of a group of anglers landing a hammerhead while shark fishing in Miami, FL.  This hammerhead is a beautiful fish and I'm always amazed by their size and power.

One of our most popular requests is shark fishing charters because many of our guests want the thrill of catching a shark. Besides hammerhead sharks, we also find quite a few other species of sharks near Miami, including bull sharks, thresher sharks, nurse sharks, and more.

Our Miami shark fishing charters are suitable for all types of groups and families. Our crew are experts at shark fishing and know how to safely handle these powerful creatures. We are also concerned with shark conservation and therefore comply with all Florida shark fishing regulations.

South Florida Cold Front Means Great Fishing

Written by Capt. Noah on Tuesday, 03 January 2012. Posted in Fishing Reports

True: it's freaking cold for us Floridians now. True: the NW wind has the Gulfstream looking gnarly. But if you're reading this you're most likely interested in cleaning up and catching some fish!

Our past experience has shown us that this unusually cold weather leads to great fishing - especially if you get on a boat with one of our expert captains who know where the fish hide when it's cold.

If you're thinking about taking a fishing trip in Florida, layer up and give it a try!

Check out our Miami Fishing Charters.
