Rainbow Charters is a 4th generation charter fishing business that has been operating out of Ponce Inlet, FL for more than 50 years. They offer a range of fishing trips, starting at a 4-hour day trip, up to a 12-hour adventure for hard-core anglers.
Captain Scott’s goal is to provide you with a memorable experience no matter what your fishing skills are. His excellent first mate is skilled at assisting the guest anglers with whatever help they need, to make their day a fun and successful day.
You will be fishing on a 39’ deep-sea fishing vessel with a 365 HP Caterpillar engine. The Rainbow II is a sturdy, seaworthy vessel that will provide a safe, enjoyable fishing trip. She is equipped with GPS, fishfinders, tackle, rods&reels, bait, outriggers, on-board bathroom, seating for all passengers, and safety equipment.
Go after Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Snapper, Mackerel, Amberjack, Barracuda, and Sailfish among other species. Offshore trips can take you as far as 50 miles off the coast, so you’ll have the chance to target the biggest fish the Gulf offers.
Everything is included in the price except for your personal snacks, lunches, and beverages. Make sure to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, non-slip footwear, and a hat. If you think you might get seasick, think ahead and get some meds. Remember the camera to catch those special shots!
Rainbow Charters welcomes you aboard! Join for a memorable day on the water!
