Offshore Fishing

Do you have a large group but still want that private charter experience? We are the only private fishing charter boat in Port Canaveral certified to take more than 6 people.

Go Deep Sea Fishing aboard a spacious and roomy boat!

The Time and Tide I is a 38 foot Delta with a 450 hp diesel engine that cruises at a comfortable 15 kts. This boat is the only private fishing charter boat in Port Canaveral that is certified to carry up to 18 passengers. This means that the Time and Tide I has been certified by the Coast Guard for safe operation with more passengers, meaning you do not have to limit your group to 6 or less people. This also means that our Captains must have a 50-ton Masters License in addition to a 6-passenger license. This 38 ft Delta is a Port Canaveral icon. It has probably seen more grouper and snapper pulled over its rails than any other boat. We have made many upgrades to turn this old girl back into a fine fishing machine including new engines, electronics, seating and railing. We commonly Deep Sea Fish for kingfish, dorado, cobia, amberjack, shark, wahoo, mahi (dorado) and many more. We fish for what’s in season and always your best catch opportunity.
