Embark on the fishing trip of a lifetime. Florida’s Space Coast offers many fishing opportunities including deep sea saltwater fishing charters, near shore fishing in bays and inlets, and fishing from piers including Cape Canaveral. Enjoy Florida’s abundant sunshine on the gentle tides of the Atlantic Ocean. With expert guide services and charters that host fishing excursions in coastal bays and estuaries and up to 40 miles out from the coast, you are sure to find a perfect spot to catch the big one.
You can choose to hire a boat and captain or head out on your own. If you choose to plan your own fishing trip, you can choose to fish from the long piers at Cape Canaveral National Shoreline, you can get a free license to fish at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Preserve, or you can rental a boat at Beachside Boat Rentals and visit Mosquito Lagoon to experience some amazing catches, all at your leisure.
Most fishing tours last anywhere from half a day to ten hours depending on your chosen tour. Most guide services provide everything you need to enjoy a hassle-free adventure including a temporary fishing license, tackle & gear, and even refreshments depending on the guide service. The Space Coast boasts over hundreds of species of salt water fish. Several common species are redfish, red snapper, snook, trout, grouper, sea bass, tarpon, and amber jack. These substantial fish will be a savory souvenir to bring home.
