Enjoy the beautiful waters in the Florida Keys aboard Manicsportfishing! If you’re looking to cast a few lines, take in the sights, and have an all-around fun day, this is the charter for you. Families will have a great time with Captain Gregory Fabrizzi. He knows these waterways in and out and makes sure you have everything you need for a memorable day on board.

There’s something for everyone aboard the double-decker 26’ Grand Island pontoon boat. Youngsters, and the young at heart, can’t get enough of the epic water slide and water toys. Those looking to relax can chill out on the comfortable couches with a beverage and take in the view. Capt. Greg also has a portable toilet so you don’t have to make stops, and ample ice storage for food and drinks.

Inshore fishing in the Keys offers plenty of opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere. Hook Catfish, Snapper, and even Bonehead Shark in these calm waters. Trips aboard Capt. Greg’s pontoon boat are mostly catch and release but he’s happy to clean and fillet any keepers you do catch.

There’s fishing equipment for 4 anglers to use on board. What you’ll want to bring are your bathing suits and snorkeling equipment for cooling off in the water! Bottled water is provided and you’re free to bring any other drinks and snacks you’d like. Please try to avoid refreshments in glass packaging and spray-on suntan lotion.

Try some fishing, do some exploring, and enjoy a few hours on the water with Manicsportfishing!

Captian Gregory Fabrizzi has been fishing his entire life. He's a New Jersey native who has been exploring the waters of the Florida Keys for the past 10 years, during the winter months. It's safe to say that he knows these waters like the back of his hand! He started his charter operation in New Jersey, but relocated to Florida due to the incredible and diverse fishery that is on offer. Greg is a proud father of three children and spends as much time as possible with his wife and children, both on and off the water. Whether you're a seasoned fisherman looking to reel in your trophy catch, or want to take your family on a truly memorable vacation, Capt. Gregory warmly welcomes you on board. Manicsportfishing is available for tournaments and has a proven track record of tournament winnings.
