Family Custom Charters

Are you looking for a trip of a lifetime, but are worried you haven’t got enough experience? Have no fear, Captain Andrew has got you covered! He is more than happy to educate all novices on the Family Custom Charters. Experienced anglers are also more than welcome aboard too!

His Cobia 22’ center console can easily fit 4 guests, all able to fish at the same time. With 150 HP and a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots, Capt. Andrew will have you on the fish in no time.

He is happy for kids of all ages to join these trips, but kindly asks parents not to bring newborns aboard on the offshore trips. He has top of the line navigational and safety equipment, so you can fish at ease. Safety is a top priority of Capt. Andrew, as well as making sure you have a great day on the water. Even after your trip, Capt. Andrew will fillet your catch so it’s ready for your dinner!

He has trips to suit every angler, be it novice or experienced, and will have you on the fish of your dreams soon enough. The hardest decision you will need to make is whether you want to fish inshore or offshore. Inshore fishing is great for the younger members of the family, whereas the offshore fishing will likely yield more fantastical fish.

If you don’t fancy fishing, his sandbar trips are an ideal way to enjoy the water, see the local nature, and perhaps spot a dolphin or two!

Just remember to bring your sunscreen, polarized sunglasses and snacks! Fishing license is included, as well as all bait and gear. Captain Andrew hopes to see you soon!

Captain Andrew has been running trips for 5 years. It all started as a hobby for him, but quickly became such a way of life that making it into a full time job was the next logical step. Fishing the waters of Florida is in his blood- not only has he been fishing here his entire life, but both his father and grandfather have been avid fishermen their whole lives.
