The waters of Miami are home to a variety of game fish, such as Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Cobia, Snapper, Grouper, and much more. Capt. Pete specializes in light tackle and kite fishing, bottom fishing, and other live bait methods. He will see to it that you land your catch using the most effective technique.

Standing by is First Mate Johnny Vilorio, an accomplished lifelong fisherman who is both knowledgable and fun to fish with. Fluent in Spanish and dedicated to customer happiness, he’s here to make sure your trip is successful and enjoyable.

Wild Life Charters depart out of the Crandon Park Marina on Key Biscayne. A fishing license and all the gear you need are provided. Depending on the species, you are welcome to keep your catch and Capt. Pete will clean and bag it for you.

Please note that a 18-20% gratuity for the First Mate is customary.
