We hit the lottery with Fin and Fly! We were in Cocoa Beach for a long weekend and decided to try and grab a last minute charter (I definitely don’t recommend waiting until the last minute). At first we tried searching out and booking some places online, it was a holiday weekend so most places were already booked. Then we decided to head down to the local Dive and Bait Shop to get the scoop. While we were grabbing some surf fishing tackle I asked the owner who he would recommend and he came over to his rack of flyers etc and grabbed 2 of them. While we were checking out another customer walked in. The bait shop owner said hey this is Jamie he owns Fin and Fly (one of the flyers he just gave me) I told him I was looking to get out for about anything this weekend. He said you’re in luck we had a cancellation for tomorrow afternoon, I can get you out with Captain John for a half day! He grabbed his phone and got me locked in right on the spot. Captain John reached out that night to get all the details and make sure we knew where to meet him etc. John gave us regular updates that morning and even got us out 45 minutes earlier than we had scheduled (perfect for beating those afternoon showers). John was super personable and knowledgeable. We had our live well filled up in no time and we were off to one of the shipwrecks. We had kingfish on the boat less than 15 minutes from anchoring up. After finding out that we really fish a lot John said we could try for a Goliath Grouper and busted out the heavy duty tackle. We didn’t get a grouper to bite but I did land a huge bull shark 🦈 he was around 8’ and 200#. This was the most difficult fish I’ve ever landed and John helped coach through the whole thing. We caught some Kong’s, that huge shark, and some snapper. Not to mention hooking up on a few other monsters that totally beat us out! These guys are awesome and we will be back for sure!!!

This was our second fishing charter with Fin and Fly. During our first trip 6 of us went fishing and Captain Nate went out of his way to meet our needs! We felt stress free and needed very little experience to have a great time!

Recently we decided to book another trip requesting Captain Nate again! Without hesitation, Captain Nate went above and beyond giving us a fishing trip we will never forget! He is extremely passionate about fishing and we trusted his judgment and advice to take us out and to have a great time as we are not very experienced with deep sea fishing . We simply gave him some of our goals and he was able to put together a full day of deep sea fishing making it the best he could given the weather and time we had!

Now everyone’s favorite part of the review!
We fished several different depths, as well as many different ways using large heavy duty rods, to smaller rods, to trolling, and using different types of baiting, such as live bait as well as lures! Captain Nate did an amazing job. He made sure we got a variety of fish AND showed us a great time.

We caught at least 6 different variety of fish such as, Red Snapper, Cobia, Amberjack, Kingfish, Almaco Jack, and a few Sharks!!

We had plenty for the 6 of us to eat needless to say! Captain Nate not only filleted the fish we kept, but also recommended we take our catch to the local Grill where they cooked it for us for a small fee! I’ll still be dreaming about how delicious it was! We can’t wait to go again! Would highly recommend!

Although the owner had advised that fishing would not be very good due to weather and water quality our 8 year old granddaughter really wanted to go fishing as she was flying back to Iowa the next day. Captain John provided outstanding service to all 4 of us and we really enjoyed our half day trip. My granddaughter reeled in a couple catfish and a small ray. We saw many birds and a couple pods of dolphins and really enjoyed the morning. Captain John was a very informative, safe and friendly skipper and my granddaughter wants to go fishing again when she comes back to visit from Iowa. I highly recommend Fin and Fly Fishing Charters and will book fishing trips with them in the future, and we will hope that we get Captain John for our trip. Thanks for creating a lifetime memory for us!

Booked for a full-day trip in early May 2021 with Captain Nate - he did a great job teaching us the basics and put us on top of a lot of fish. Had a lot of action early on with Amberjacks (caught one keeper), Red Snappers (unfortunately had to return) and got a surprise Mahi. Nate was kind and patient, the boat was well maintained and ran smoothly. Would recommend Fun & Fly to anyone looking for a good deep sea fishing experience (even for beginners like us!)

If you’re looking for a fun and professional charter experience for the family, Fin and Fly Charters is definitely the charter for you. My husband, father in law, and I booked a 5hour offshore fishing charter with Nate, and it was DEFINITELY worth the price. This was our first off shore charter, and we felt incredibly comfortable and welcomed, as well as enabled to have a good fishing experience. Nate was amazing and helped us reel in 2 big Cobia after only about 40 mins of sailing out off shore. He was clearly knowledgable about all the good spots to fish, as well as the techniques necessary to attract fun catches. He helped us catch and release some Dolphin Mahi as well as lots of Red Snapper. We also got to see a Sunfish, Dolphins and Sharks, and had such a good time that we have decided to book a charter with Fin and Fly every year!

Had a great day on the river today fishing black drum with Jamie. Expert guide who really knows the area and has great equipment. Comfortable 22 foot fishing boat was super nice and Jamie was able to keep us on the fish the entire time. Many boats around us with lines in the water but very little action, but we were able to have 2 fish on at a time at least 4 times and then we had 3 on at the same time! Not a dull moment all morning!

Highly recommend this fishing charter!

Thanks for a great day on the river. We’ll be back soon.

I highly, highly recommend Fin and Fly Charters for deep sea fishing out of Port Canaveral. Top notch professional booking process with Jamie. We had captain Parker and his mate, Kevin and we were booked for a full day on the 32-foot Sonar, on opening day of red snapper season:) They put us on the bite right away and kept the rod action going the whole time! Parker is very knowledgeable of the area and we learned so much from both of them. Trip of a lifetime catching a 38.6lb grouper and our limit of snapper. Both were awesome with our teenagers too who enjoyed reeling in some big snapper. Though we are local and have our own boat, we will definitely book with them in the future when we want to go further offshore than we are comfortable doing in our smaller boat. These guys also clean your fish for you! Just bring your drinks, lunch and sunscreen and be prepared for a fun day on the water!

We went on the bioluminescence tour on 6/15/21. I definitely think we made a great choice going by boat vs kayak. It was a private boat tour for 6 and we could focus on the beautiful and magic of the bright blue glowing water, fish, and comb jellies instead of paddling. We also got to see more water and wildlife glow being a little up off the water than we would if we were in a kayak. We brought drinks for the cooler and bug spray for the 1.5 hr tour. Jamie was super nice and kept great communication leading up to the tour and confirmed the bioluminescence was active before taking my reservation. Other companies were booking tours but neglected to say the bio wasn’t glowing yet (a couple weeks before I booked). Jamie was honest from the first phone call and assured me we wouldn’t go out unless the bio was active. When I called one of the kayak companies, they weren’t honest but eventually said you can see it if you “look hard enough”. With Jamie we saw bright blue bio all night. 100% recommend!

If you are going to FL to book a fishing trip, get it from this place and request Captain John, fishing with other charters is like buying jewelries from Eric Cartman from southpark! Our trip is 1/2 day 7AM to 12 Noon, we showed up 40mins late, Captain John was willing to extend the trip to 12:40. We hit our daily limit 2 king fish per person within 1 hour...Captain John took us to few more places for other fish. it was a blast.

We had a great time fishing with John. We were originally scheduled for a Tuesday trip, however our weather was going to cause sloppy conditions. Captain John and Jamie suggested we reschedule for the followng day. The weather was perfect and the fishing was great, Caught our 4 person limit on slot Red Fish plus one Bull Red to release and lots of action with the Jacks. Would highly recommend using Fin and Fly Charters. You will not be dissapointed!
