Canaveral Kings Sport Fishing

8 reviews
In demand!

Canaveral Kings offers premier charter fishing on Florida’s Space Coast. Located in Port Canaveral, they are just minutes away from the Kennedy Space Center and Cocoa Beach. From the attractions of Disney World and Universal Studios located in Orlando and Kissimmee, they are roughly a 45 -minute drive.

Their charter fishing trips can be catered to anglers of all ages and skill levels. Whether you are a novice experiencing your first fishing trip or a seasoned angler Canaveral Kings Sport Fishing have a trip to fit your interest and needs. One thing that sets them apart from some is their time spent on the water. Fishing is their full-time job, not a part-time hobby. On days they don’t have charters booked, they go commercial fishing, where they sell the fish to the market. This puts us them the water more often and allows the crew to stay dialed in on the fish.

All equipment is professionally maintained and always kept clean. The boat is a Downeast style Duffy, powered by a Cummins engine and
captained by Florida native Joey Spoerle. The F/V Canaveral Kings is a comfortable and spacious fishing platform. It features amenities such as a shaded cockpit and full restroom. Inside, you will find plenty of room for your personal items as well as shelter from anything Mother Nature may throw at you.

Fishing off of Florida’s East Coast provides you with world-class opportunities at many different species of fish. Although some of the fish targeted are seasonal, Capt. Joey often catches multiple species in a single trip. Species you’ll target include, but are certainly not limited to, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, King Mackerel, Tunas, Barracuda, Sharks, Cobia, Snappers, Groupers, Amberjack, Triggerfish, and Seabass.

Book a trip today so they can share their passion of the ocean and all the fish and creatures that inhabit it with you!

Captain Joey Spoerle grew up fishing the waters of Florida’s east coast. He was born in Cape Canaveral and has lived his entire life on the Space Coast. After attending college and earning a Bachelors degree in Business Management, Captain Joey still felt the calling of the sea. He decided a 9-5 office job wasn't for him, so he continued his education with the United States Coast Guard, where he obtained a 50 ton master Captain’s license. Six years later and he has still not looked back! When he is not running charters Joey is fishing commercially, where the fish are sold to the market. This puts Joey on the water nearly everyday, giving him an edge to staying on top of the fish. He has won a number of local tournaments as well as traveled to places like the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, and all over the state chasing fish. He feels truly fortunate to make a career out of what he loves doing- fishing and putting a smile on people's faces.
