Sea Dancer Charters

(28) In demand!

Sea Dancer Charters offers deep sea and near coastal fishing off of NE Florida. Captain Dennis has over 50 years of local knowledge, and will provide a memorable trip for all, from the youngest angler to the seasoned veteran.

From the get- go you’ll feel like a proper fisherman as you catch your own live bait! You might cast a net for pogies or use a sabiki rig for spanish sardines and cigar minnows, depending on what you will be going after during your trip.

You can expect to use Penn rods and reels, as well as a braided line. Captain Dennis knows that the equipment is dictated by the fish on the day, so is ready to fish combinations, with light tackle to heavy tackle and everything in between. You can expect a huge variety with Captain Dennis, from Redfish and Flounder to Snappers and Groupers, and even Sailfish, King Mackerels, Cobias (subject to season,) and Amberjacks. He is ready to fish if you are!

If you just want to spend your trip going after one species of fish, Captain Dennis is happy to cater to your needs and accommodate you. But the Sea Dance Charter is best for opportunistic fishing, seeing what’s available and being ready to change your fishing technique at a moments notice to optimize on that.

Once the trip has been completed, you can expect to take home some of your catch, cleaned and filleted for your convenience. Please be aware that the catch to take home depends on which fisheries are open, as dictated by the Federal Fisheries.

Trips are normally set for 4 adults, but children from the age of 7 are more than welcome. They can accommodate any combination of adults and children totaling 5. For example, 2 adults and 3 children or 3 adults and 2 children.

This charter offers greats flexibility. The fish can be unpredictable, the waters changing, but Captain Dennis is ready to match this, adapt to the conditions and ensure you have a great trip. He looks forward to welcoming you aboard soon!

    If your need a challenge, this is the trip for you. Normally mid-May through to September, there are a huge number of various varieties of large sharks that patrol behind local shrimp boats. The most exciting and powerful are Black Tips, commonly called Spinner Sharks. True acrobats, once hooked up they will provide you with an exciting ride. If you are a dolphin lover you will be in dolphin heaven. We have hundreds of dolphins that accompany our shrimp boats. Please note, we do not feed the Dolphins.

I was born and raised in to the commercial fishing industry as a youngster in my earlier days. Entered the US Navy in 1965, served for 23 years and retired as a Naval Officer. I started our charter service while in the navy and have continued to enhance it since retiring. Fishing and the ocean is in my blood. I love being on the water because every day is different, you never know what you will encounter next. My wife and I have 9 grandchildren and I have had the pleasure of getting them involved with their experiences on the water. I love taking kids fishing and making their first experience one to remember.
