Saltwater Fishing in Florida

Written by Capt. Noah on Thursday, 20 June 2013. Posted in Tourist Info

It is well known that Florida has among the most fantastic saltwater fishing in the world. Almost every thrilling game fish on the planet can be found and caught in these waters. There are a number of reasons why the fishing is so extraordinary phenomenal off the coast of Florida. Currents, tropical oceans and protective shelter for large numbers of prey fish ensure that big fish thrive here. This is why saltwater fishing in Florida is so thrillingly extreme:

The Atlantic Ocean

Florida has the Atlantic Ocean on its eastern coast, southern coast and western coast. The Florida Keys are surrounding by these waters; which are warm and perfectly ideal for some truly big game fish. Most of the main currents flow into the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean Sea where many of these fish go to spawn. They migrate along the Gulf Stream current and pass close to the coast of Florida.

The Gulf Stream Current

On the eastern coast of Florida, the Gulf Stream current is used as a migratory route for millions of fish every year. It passes within a few miles of the shore and huge fish can frequently be caught extremely close to land. Their food sources travel in this current and they follow them hungrily, happily devouring our bait in the process. This is one of the best locations in the world to catch truly awe-inspiring fish.

The Gulf of Mexico

The western coast of Florida faces the Gulf of Mexico. This is a nursery for millions of fish species that spend their primary years developing here before being big enough for migration. They float on the current from the Caribbean Sea before being pushed into the bay. These fish attract extremely large fish which prey on them.

The Everglades

This enormous wilderness consists mostly of water. Not all of it is saltwater but the tides extend far inland from the Gulf of Mexico, and many saltwater fish swim inshore with them. Tarpon, great barracuda, snook and other saltwater fish survive happily in these waters. There are also a number of convenient waterways that will quickly get you into the Gulf of Mexico for delightful fishing action.

Saltwater Habitats

The reasons why fish thrive in these parts is varied. Warm water, warm currents, huge selections of food sources and shelter are necessary for their survival. The underwater geological formation around Florida provides many places for fish to hide from predators. There are always big fish looking for prey in places where they seek shelter. Here are some underwater habitats where you can find saltwater game fish in Florida:

  • Mud Flats
  • Grass Flats
  • Rocks
  • Coral Reefs
  • Wrecks
  • Deep Waters
  • Canyons
  • Ledges
  • Floating Objects
  • Fixed Structures
  • Caves

Fishing Charters in Florida Keys

Fishing Charters in Florida Keys

A coral cay archipelago, the Florida Keys is the exposed portions of an ancient reef and they consist of small islands and cays beginning at the south-eastern tip of the Florida Peninsula. About fifteen miles from Miami, the Keys protrude in a gentle arc southward before turning westward towards inhabited Key West. From there they extend to the furthermost key which is the uninhabited Dry Tortugas. They define one edge of Florida Bay and lie along the Florida Straits, effectively dividing the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Gulf of Mexico to the west. Both bodies of water are world-famous for the most spectacular big game fishing happening anywhere on the planet – and you can experience the adventure on our Florida Keys Fishing Charters.

The major industries in the Florida Keys are tourism and fishing. Upland forests, inland wetlands and shorelines make up the natural habitat; which is why tourists visit them in their thousands. Unique ecosystems are thriving, wildlife is protected and there are many conservation parks and botanical gardens. Fishing is phenomenally popular in the Florida Keys. Most locals go out to sea regularly and the abundance of a diverse number of sought-after fish brings visitors in large numbers. Anglers from all over the world dream of the opportunities these waters offer, and many of them make it a reality.

Key West is the most populous city in the Florida Keys. Anglers wishing to experience the city life go there to charter a boat and head out to sea. The Gulf Stream current passes close to shore and the Gulf of Mexico is also nearby. The fishing is explosive in Key West, but there are other keys that are considered veritable fishing hotspots as well. Marathon is well-known as being one of the best places to catch fish in Florida, but Islamorada is the place to be if you want to take advantage of the biggest fishing opportunities, particularly for swordfish and sailfish.

The continental shelf drops very steeply on the Atlantic Ocean side, whereas it is more gradual in the Gulf of Mexico. There are deep underwater canyons, ocean trenches, coral reefs, seamounts and other landmass structures on either side; but if you are on the eastern keys you do not need to travel as far. These are the places where you find big game fish feeding on prey that hides there. The Gulf Stream current is a migratory route used by all the sports fish in these waters and it passes close to the eastern coast of the Florida Keys.

We recommend those in Key Largo take the twenty minute drive to Islamorada. There are nicer boats there and the fishing is generally better. Regardless of which keys you are visiting, you will always be able to catch the world’s most exhilarating fish. Depending on where your are, you may have to take a short drive to reach the best fishing spots or travel a little further by boat to reach the most promising fishing grounds.

Fort Lauderdale Bachelor Party Fishing

Written by Capt. Steve on Tuesday, 30 October 2012. Posted in Tourist Info

Fort Lauderdale Bachelor Party Fishing

Fort Lauderdale is a great bachelor party destination.  Fort Lauderdale offers all the attractions, restaurants, bars and clubs that Miami does but without all the hassle.  Fishing charters are a great option for a day time activity in between wild nights of partying.  With in a couple mile radius of downtown Fort Lauderdale you have everything you need for a long weekend.  Bachelor parties can walk or pay a small cab fare to access everything Fort Lauderdale has to offer.  I recommend booking a hotel a the W Fort Lauderdale.  There are two great bars located right on the premises.  The pool area has a great scene during the day and the beach is right across the street.  For dinner head to Las Olas Boulevard and choose from dozens of great restaurants.  After dinner you can walk downtown where there is a large selection of bars and clubs that get pretty busy on the weekend.  

After a long night of partying try not to waste the day away.  Book one of our fishing charters in Fort Lauderdale.  All of our bachelor party fishing charters allow BYOB, so bring some beers on board and will chill them on ice for the Bachelor.  Our captains and crew are super fun to spend the day with and most importantly they catch a ton of fish.  We can arrange multiple boats for larger bachelor parties.  We often put on a mini tournament between the two boats.  You can't go wrong with a little competition amongst friends.  After a long day of fishing we'll clean your fish at the dock and recommend some nice restaurants where you can enjoy your fresh catch!

Fort Lauderdale Boat Show Parking

Written by Capt. Noah on Monday, 22 October 2012. Posted in Tourist Info

The 2012 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is shaping up to be a good show. Although it's not what it once was, it's great to see that manufacturers and vendors are starting to innovate again and we're sailing out of the recession doldrums.

Parking at the Fort Lauderdale boat show is never much fun. The parking near Bahia Mar is extremely limited, and you've gotta be prepared to cough up some cash to find a decent spot in walking distance.

For most, the easiest thing to do is park in the parking garage at the Broward County Convention Center and then walk through the show to the back of the building where a shuttle bus will take you to Bahia Mar.

If you do want to get a bit closer, our Fort Lauderdale fishing captain, Mike Johnson, is selling spots in his lot, which is on A1A just south of the Jungle Queen ticket office. The address 1005 Seabreeze Blvd. Spots in his lot go for $50 a day, but you'll be right next to the show and it'll be easy to exit onto A1A. If Mike's lot fills up, try parking at Bahia Cabana, which is just off of A1A behind the fire station.

A handful of other enterprising parking lot owners are also offering paid parking in Bahia Mar and if you can get a spot for under $50, you're getting a ... dare I say "fair price".

Fishing Charters to the Bahamas

Bahamas Fishing Trips



We offer a number of different fishing charters to the Bahamas.  Many of our trips leave from South Florida while others begin in the Bahamas.  For shorter Bahamas fishing trips we often recommend a 3 day trip from Palm Beach, Miami, or Fort Lauderdale to Bimini.  On a calm day boats can reach the Bahamas within a few hours.

Bahamas fishing charters can range from super highend luxury sportfishing yachts to casual sportfishing boats.  There are two option for sleeping accommodations aboard a fishing charter in the Bahamas.  If the boat is big enough passengers and crew can both sleep on the boat.  If the party is larger that 4 people we often times recommend hotel and resort accommodations to our guests.  Some of are larger sportfish boats can sleep up to 8 guests plus crew.  Guests can spend all day, on the boat and can get a good nights rest at a resort.  Another good option if the boat isn't big enough to accommodate the guests and crew to sleep aboard is to let the crew share a hotel room while guests can enjoy accommodations on the boat.  

We offer Bahamas fishing charters in all price ranges.  Most charters have a flat fee per day and then add expenses on.  There are some charters that have all inclusive pricing as well.  The main expenses on a Bahamas fishing charter is fuel, catering, and dockage.   

Some of our favorite Bahamas fishing destinations include, Nassau, Freeport, Eleuthra Island, Bimini, Grand Bahams, the Abacos and the Exumas.  World class fishing exists in all of these exotic locations throughout the Bahamas.  Some unique pelagic fish species that are targeted in the Bahamas are white and blue marlin, sailfish, mahi, wahoo, and tuna.

The best way to book a fishing charter in the Bahamas is to contact VIP Fishing Charters with a specific set of dates.  Keep in mind that a lot of our fishing boat that do these trips are constantly traveling around the caribbean and other parts of the world especially the higher-end ones.  We can tell exactly which boats will be available for a Bahamas charters and quote you on a variety of different fishing options.  Check out the link to our Luxury Fishing Yachts.  These are some of the most popular choices for Bahamas fishing trips.

The price for a Miami fishing charter can have a dramatic range.  Miami fishing charter prices depend on many different factors.  Some of the factors include: type of boat, length of trips, location, bait, catering and demand for the charter.  Typically smaller boats in Miami such as flats or bay boats are the cheapest.  These boats burn a lot less fuel then other boats in Miami and do not have any crew members besides the captain.  The price for this type of fishing charter usually start around $400 for a half day and goes up to $6oo for a full day.  The center consoles in Miami would be the next step up from the bay and flats boat.  They are typically a little larger and can go out in the ocean for deep sea fishing.  The price for these center console trips begin around $500 for a half day and go up to $800 for a full day.  For larger groups it probably makes sense to charter a sportfish style boat in Miami.  These boats can hold up to 6 people and usually have a bathroom on-board.   These Miami boats range from $700 for a half day up to $1200 for a full day.  The price is higher for the sportfish style boats because they normally have a two man crew, burn more gas and have higher maintenance expenses and dockage fees.

The prices for our Miami fishing charters have a wide range but are always competitive for the quality of the charter you are getting.  For example a 65' luxury viking is going to cost a lot more than a 45' older Hatteras.  We have a good selection of boats to meet all of our clients budgets and needs.  Miami fishing charters prices can also go up if you add on catering, stewards, and drinks.  Customary gratuity is typically 15% to 20% of the miami fishing charter price.  Let us help you find the perfect charter that fits your budget.  Here are a few of our Miami charter options.

Fort Lauderdale Cruise Ship Excursions

Written by Capt. Steve on Tuesday, 07 August 2012. Posted in Tourist Info

We know a lot of our clients in Fort Lauderdale visit us before or after they go on their cruise from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale.  Besides our amazing fishing charters, there are plenty of other cool cruise ship excursions you can do from Fort Lauderdale.  

  • The World Famous Jungle Queen River Boat is a great Fort Lauderdale excursion that the whole family can enjoy.  The narrated sighting seeing cruise let's you see Fort Lauderdale in it's best light which is by boat.  Check out the dinner cruise for some delicious all you can eat bbq and some live entertainment including comedians and magicians.
  • My second choice for best cruise ship excursion would be an airboat ride in the Everglades.  If you have never been to the Everglades this should be a must on your list.  The Everglades is diverse and exciting environment not to mention you should see a ton of alligators.  Airboats are fast and loud so hang on to your seat and make sure your earplugs are in tight.
  • Another excursion in Fort Lauderdalethat looks really fun is ZAINOJET.  The company allows you to rent a jetpack and fly around the canals of Fort Lauderdale.  This might sound rediculous but it does exist and it looks awesome.  I'm having trouble describing this excursion so look it up on Google.
  • Of course I have to mention a VIP Fishing Charter.  I always save the best for the last.  There's not a better cruise ship excursion than chartering a private boat for a day of fishing with family and friends.

If you have any qustions or need any recommendations about other cruise ship excursions don't hesitate to contact us.  Steve grew up in Fort Lauderdale and knows everything there is to do there along with the best restaurants and hotels.
