Captain Rio Adventures New Safety Measures: 


1. All guests must wear face masks or neck gaiters (buffs) during their trips. If you don’t have one, it can be provided. Your captain will also be wearing a mask and the boat will be thoroughly cleaned before and after each trip.

2. If a guest needs to cancel due to COVID-19 or sickness, the deposit will be refunded. If anyone in your group feels sick, please cancel your trip immediately.

Captain Rio Adventures invites you to sign up for a day of amazing fishing down in South Florida. Capt. Rio doesn’t just go out to fish, he goes out to catch big ones and make memories while doing so. He can also show you the beautiful beaches and wildlife that this part of the country is known for.

You’ll be fishing on his 23’ Cobia Boats center console that’s powered by a single 200 HP Yamaha outboard. Thanks to the fact it can reach a top speed of an impressive 40 knots, you’ll be on the fishing grounds in a snap. With enough room for 6 people to fish in comfort, it’s a great option for when you want to bring the entire family along for the ride.

You really don’t have to go far to catch some great fish here, and there’s a whole variety of ‘em to go after. These include Redfish and Snook to Jack Crevalle, Grouper, Snapper, and even Tarpon when the season hits. You also have the option to do some birdwatching, which can be fun for the whole family. The Ten Thousand Islands hold at least as many noteworthy sights.

Your comfort is Capt. Rio’s prime directive, so not only can you expect all the necessary fishing gear to be waiting on board, but fish cleaning services are also included in the price. There’s also plenty of water and ice, but feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks for the trip. This is as close as you can get to fishing in paradise, so don’t delay

Captain Rio has more than 30 years of experience and has worked as a guide in Florida and California for many years. He's always open to joking around, with a very endearing sense of humor. He's a big fan of live bait fishing, but will always use the best techniques for getting the job done.
