When it comes to Western Atlantic fishing, Cape Canaveral has it all - a variety of game species biting throughout the year, inshore and nearshore. It also has All Points Guide Service, one of the most exquisite charters in the area. Specializing in inshore and nearshore fishing, Captain Michael Atwill will show you the hottest bite that Florida waters have to offer.

Step aboard his 2200 Tournament Edition Pathfinder bay boat, 22 feet long and built in 2006. The vessel was restored in 2018, so everything on board is up-to-date and high-tech. Reliable and comfortable, the boat can cater to 4 anglers. It also comes with a T-top to protect you from the sun.

Captain Mike will show you the local pristine beaches, rivers, and productive nearshore wrecks and reefs. No matter if you prefer exploring the inshore or nearshore waters, All Points Guide Service has a package for you. You can choose between trolling, spinning, jigging, popping or drift and bottom fishing.

Depending on the technique and the area, expect to catch some Redfish, Black Drum, Tarpon, Snook, Trout, Cobia, King Mackerel, Red Snapper, and much more. Watch out for Blacktip Sharks as well!

Live bait (shrimps etc.) is included in the price, and the boat is equipped with a live bait tank. It also has an ice-box to keep your catch fresh - the captain will clean and filet everything for you after the trip is over. If your kids are older than five, feel free to bring them along.

A special treat for nature lovers - besides fishing, you’ll also be able to enjoy the local scenery and marine life, including dolphins, turtles, and a variety of birds.

I'm Capt. Mike, a native Floridian born and raised in Key Largo. My father was a commercial fisherman, and so was I for 30 years. When I wasn't in school or pulling traps as a kid, I was spending all my time on my 13' Jon Boat, catching Tarpon, Snook, and Mangrove Snapper. Now I own a 2200 Tournament Edition Pathfinder, and I want to share my lifetime of knowledge and skills with people who are as passionate about fishing as I am. My favorite thing about fishing is the excitement, especially when I’m battling Cobia.
