Brevard County Tours – Pontoon

Brevard County Tours is ready to take you and your family on a memorable fishing adventure! Captain Dave runs a year round charter that accommodates anglers of all skill levels. If you’re interested in nearshore and offshore fishing trips, check out his second listing. On this page, we’ll focus on his inshore tours that are perfect for novices and kids.

You’ll be fishing on a 24’ Triton pontoon boat. There’s enough room for 4 guests and everybody can fish at the same time. All trips are private, so you’ll always have the whole boat for your group only. This simple and stable boat has everything you need for a good inshore adventure - a live bait tank, a cooler for your drinks, and a 90 Yamaha HP engine.

Although you may not expect lots of fishing opportunities this close to the shore, there’s a huge variety of fish species you can catch here. Go after Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, Snapper, Trout, Sheepshead, Tarpon, and many more. You get to keep the catch and the captain will clean it for you after the trip.

Your fishing equipment and licenses are covered, so you only need to pack your food, drinks, and sun protection.

This is a great way to introduce fishing to your kids, show them how being in nature can be fun, and teach them a new skill. Most importantly, this will be a family day out they will never forget. Brevard County Tours is here to make that day happen!

Dave has been a licensed captain since 2005. He enjoys being out on the water and is very knowledgable about the area.

Caught mangrove snappers the first 2 hours then did a nature tour and watched a pod of dolphins.  Really fun trip.
