Whether you’re a novice or an expert angler, Daytona Beach is the place to go for off-shore charter fishing. The waters of the Atlantic Ocean are brimming with sport fish like Cobia, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi and Tarpon. Several local charter companies offer both part day and full day fishing trips.
Phillips' Brothers Fishing Charters, led by Capt. Jason Phillips, offers a variety of trips just off the beach, further offshore and even an all-day excursion into the Gulf Stream.
There’s also The Daytuna, a 43-foot Tourist Sport Fisher anchored at Critter Fleet in Ponce Inlet offering charter trips between four and 12 hours.
For deep-sea fishing and the opportunity to catch Daytona staples, such as tripletail and tuna, check out Fastlane Charters with Capt. Tim Lane or Rainbow Charters, a family owned sport-fishing charter.
From sharks and barracuda to sailfish and snook, the waters off of Daytona Beach offer some of the best sea fishing in the world. If you prefer to catch dinner in the lap of luxury, then check out The Island Spirit, a 46-foot Hatteras docked in Ponce Inlet. The boat features an air-conditioned cabin with couches, TV and full galley, as well as bathroom and sun deck.
If you’re looking to add off-shore fishing to your list of things to do while visiting Daytona Beach, then you’re in luck. The area has dozens of fishing charters available for part day to full day excursions.
