Canaveral Kings – CKII

Port Canaveral is blessed with a phenomenal location, right next to the bountiful Gulf Stream. This geographical boon, combined with the premier service that Canaveral Kings provide on their trips, make for a fabulous fishing experience.

Captains Joey Spoerle and Billy invite you to join them for an angling adventure on board a 35’ JC offshore sportfishing vessel. She was built in 1985 and fully rejuvenated in 2012 – old-school quality combined with modern amenities. You can bring 5 of your family or friends with you, the boat can hold 6 anglers.

The boat is fully equipped for both epic fishing and comfort while doing so. A private bathroom means you don’t have to worry about holding it in, even on longer trips. There are outriggers on board, to extend your reach when trolling and allow for more lines in the water. And you’ll want as many lines in the water as possible with the extensive list of species you can target.

Canaveral Kings will take you after almost anything that swims in the waters off the coast of Florida. You can go from fishing the nearshore reefs and wrecks for Snappers, Groupers, and other fish, all the way to offshore extravaganza with Kingfish, Sailfish, and other pelagics. All the equipment you may need is provided by the charter.

You can even go for Sharks in Port Canaveral after dark – an experience worth a story or two!

Kids aged 1 and above are welcome to experience the thrill of angling, but please provide comfortable vests for them.

Book a trip with Canaveral Kings today and cast off on an unforgettable fishing excursion!

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.
