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 Suzuki outboard.
and a 36 volt Minkota Ulterra Trolling motor with spot lock , and Thanks to the fact the Susuki motor can reach a top speed of an impressive 40 knots you’ll be on the fishing grounds in a snap. and if you need a restroom , I can get you to a marina within 10 to 15 minutes, , 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 and food 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.
