SeaCo Fishing Charters offers amazing and fun fishing charters for the entire family! Captain Ricky has been fishing these Atlantic waters since he was a teenager and over the years has developed knowledge about all kinds of species and areas to fish. You are sure to enjoy your day learning about the area, the fish and the techniques. Anglers of all experiences are welcome!

Your day will be spent aboard the “Rock Bottom”, a 31’ Contender with plenty of room for your fishing crew. Equipped with all current safety equipment and a radar you can relax, while experiencing “the game” at some of the best fishing areas off of St. Augustine.

Is there a fish you’ve always wanted to catch? Just tell the captain. Is there a fishing technique you’ve wanted to master? Not a problem. The trip can be adjusted to your needs. Some opportunities depend on the season, so it’s best to get in touch with the captain and find out when’s the best time to come.

You can go offshore trolling for Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna, fish along the beaches for Cobia, go bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper during summer months, or visit the inshore spots for Redfish.

SeaCo fishing charters and Captain Ricky are kid friendly.  Tackle, rods, reels, bait, cooler with ice are all provided. Full day trips also include snacks and lunch. All fishing licenses are provided.

Choose a trip and catch a fish of a lifetime!

Captain Ricky has been fishing for the most of his life. He started casting when he was 11, which makes it a 30 year long career of catching fish. After a while, he felt he can move forward from fishing on his own and started doing it with clients. There's something special in teaching someone to use the rod, show how to battle the fish, and finally, reel it in. It's especially rewarding when he's teaching children, because they cannot hide their enthusiasm and happiness when something bites.
