Launching out of North Miami, Double D Charters takes their clients up to 20 miles offshore in search of the biggest and hardest-fighting fish on the water.

Whether it’s catching Sailfish on spinning tackle or just checking the bite a couple of miles offshore, there is a trip for you. Whichever package you decide to go for, you will be able to get the taste of the finest offshore saltwater fishing.

The crew specializes in kite fishing and live bait fishing, as well as using a variety of other techniques. You can get your hands on Sailfish, Swordfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Kingfish, and many other species that patrol those productive waters.

Families with younger anglers are also welcome to join in the adventure. Your captain has two children himself! After all, there is nothing better than seeing a child smile when they reel in their first ever fish.

Your boat for the day will be a spacious 37’ SeaVee center console, fresh on the water in 2016. The boat comes powered by triple 350 HP Mercury Verado engines and can “fly” at a hair-raising speed of 60 knots. There is plenty of space for up to 6 anglers and a full range of top-notch electronics, gear, and equipment.

All trips come with the use of rods, reels, tackle, lures, bait, licenses, and fish cleaning. All you have to do is bring your own food and drinks with you.
