Jiffster Ocean Adventures

Join Jiffster Ocean Adventures for a day of fishing fun and go home with not only a cooler full of fish but also memories that will last a lifetime! With Captain Michael Howes to lead the way to the most productive fishing grounds, you’re in for a great time on the waters of Palm Coast.

Whether you’re looking to stay nearshore or go offshore and get the true deep sea fishing experience, Capt. Michael is your guy. He’ll put you on the bite of many different species, so you could catch a variety of Snapper and Grouper, as well as Redfish and Black Seabass on nearshore expeditions. If you pick to go up to 50 miles offshore, then you could find Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Almaco Jack, and more at the end of your line.

You can try your hand in a wide array of techniques when fishing with this charter, including spearfishing for Lobster. This is a very fun activity with delicious results that could show up on your dining table that same evening.

“The Jiffster” is a 30’ center console that will be your ride and fishing platform for the day. The boat can accommodate up to 4 people and is well-equipped for the local fishing conditions. Capt. Michael will use reliable electronics to find the bite, and provide Penn and Shimano tackle for you to use.

You’ll have a first mate on all trips, and he’s in charge of helping you with everything you need. When you come back to the dock, the crew will clean and fillet the catch for you, so that you can cook it as soon as you back to land. Tips are a great way to show your gratitude for his work, and around 20% is customary.

Come with your family or your best fishing buddies, and the captain will adapt the trip to fit your preferences. Kids of all ages are also welcome, and there will be life jackets on board for everyone. Bring some food, sunscreen, and you’re ready to rumble.

Let Jiffster Ocean Adventures show you what Florida fishing is all about!

I've been a captain since 2001 and I ran charters on "The Jiffster" in Islamorada until recently, when my wife and I relocated back to Palm Coast, FL. We brought our boat with us and opened up Jiffster Ocean Adventures in hopes of sharing our happy place with others. I love taking out both novice anglers and pros and showing them how good local fishing is.
