Captain Andy – Party Boat Fishing

The exceptional Party Boat Fishing, run by Captain Andy Roydhouse offers unrivaled reef and nearshore trips. A family business, Capt. Andy is the fourth generation of fishermen in his family and is committed to providing a fun, productive time to all aboard. 

The Drift My Boat is a 75’ saltwater fishing boat, designed to carry up to 30 passengers, all of whom will fish off the side of the boat. This party boat runs tours every single day in the prolific waters out of Fort Lauderdale.

Everything you’ll need in order to fish will be provided by Capt. Andy, including rods, reels, and bait. He’ll also be happy to clean and fillet your catch so you can take it home and taste the fruits of your labor.

On this boat, you’ll go bottom fishing for Snapper, Grouper, Porgy, Grunt, and other small to medium-sized bottom fish. Most fish caught are in the 1-2 pound range and they are good eating fish.

You will be accompanied by an experienced captain and mate, who will guide you and take you about one mile offshore to the Fort Lauderdale reef.

Feel free to bring your kids and turn this into an educational experience. You’ll spend some quality family time while making some great memories together! All you need to bring is some food and drinks for your refreshment, and you’re all set.

Please know, there is a risk of seasickness. Should you be prone to seasickness please take medication prior to the trip.

With Captain Andy – Party Boat Fishing, you’ll get a fantastic fishing experience for next to nothing, and you may even make some new friends. Hop aboard!

We bottom fish for Snappers and other small to medium-sized bottom fish. Our main target is Snapper which are in the 1-2 pound range.

I am a 3rd generation fisherman here in Fort Lauderdale. My dad is a fisherman, so I grew up in the charter fishing business... in fact, my parents actually met at the dock where I still work today. I fished alongside my father throughout my high school years, as a deckhand on fishing charters as well as fishing the Bahamas Billfish Champion Circuit every year. I got my captain's license the first month I turned 18 years old and have been fishing full time ever since.
