About Captian Joe Smith Fin Factor Charters
As the boat owner and boat captain I look forward to making your Port Canaveral fishing experience memorable. Every customer is special and every charter is a special occasion and I personally guarantee that we will provide a safe, friendly and professional experience. Join me aboard the brand new Cape Horn 32. This beautifully designed deep sea fishing machine provides a comfortable and forgiving ride in all sea conditions. Come and see one of Florida's great fishing destinations. Cape Canaveral's combination of temperate waters and productive feeding grounds provides a wonderful opportunity to catch central Florida's most popular offshore game fish such as mahi, tuna, billfish, kingfish, wahoo, and cobia. Over 120 square miles of natural hard bottom ridges, reefs and wrecks hold snapper, grouper, kingfish, amberjack, triple tail, cobia, sharks and more. Many of the productive reefs are located a few miles from the Cocoa Beach shoreline less than five miles from Port Canaveral.

What an amazing day on the water! Captain Joe and his Mate Eric were top notch. Captain Joe got us on the bite early and the action continued all morning. Eric was quick on the bait and kept the action going for our entire party....More
