The Ins and Outs of Surf Fishing in Daytona Beach

Posted on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 9:00 AM by Daytona Beach Area CVB

Florida boasts some of the best fishing in the world, and the Daytona Beach area is no exception. Whether you’re winding through the backwaters in a canoe or trolling offshore on a charter, there are endless ways to experience a fishing adventure here. In fact, some of the most easily accessible fishing is done right off the beach — it’s the ideal beach activity if you have a wide range of ages in your vacation crew! 

One of the best things about a fall getaway by the beach is that the whole place feels serene and refreshed — as if the beach has come up for air after a summer of surfboards, sandy strolls and splashing. A couple things unique to Daytona Beach are its wide, expansive beaches and its fun downtown area, each of which tend to stay uncrowded all year long. Visitors don’t have to feel like they’re in a crowd everywhere they turn, because there’s plenty of elbow room for all! 

Come out to celebrate springtime temperatures, fresh seafood and our wonderful riverfront at Riverfest on the Halifax! It’s a fun-filled three-day event that the whole family can enjoy. With plenty of food, attractions, vendors and waterfront activities, Riverfest is sure to keep your crew smiling all weekend long. Riverfest is the perfect way to get a taste for the food, fun and people that make this such a special place. 

Temperatures are on the rise, sleeves are getting shorter and spirits are soaring — spring is in full swing! That means it’s almost time for sea turtle nesting season in the Daytona Beach area. Every year from mid-May through October, about 100,000 threatened and endangered sea turtles emerge from the ocean for one night to lay their eggs. If you’re one of the thousands of people who want to see this amazing natural event, be sure you know how to do it right.

Piers are an extension of community and attract all walks of life - fishermen, young and old couples in love, and those who love a scenic stroll. Daytona Beach is home to two of the six wooden piers that exist in Florida today. Located just a few short miles from each other, each pier has a story to tell and beckons its own family of visitors to return year after year.

From the moment you pass the “Last Bridge to Mainland” sign while hugging the Atlantic coastline on your way to Ponce Inlet, you know you’re in for a remote escape. Just a few short miles south of Daytona Beach at the southernmost tip of the peninsula sits a locale known for being home to the tallest lighthouse in Florida. Ponce Inlet is worth the short drive from Daytona Beach to experience all sorts of water, air and land adventures.
