Combine the best of all water activities in one magnificent trip with Manicsportfishing! This crew offers more than just fishing and makes great adventures for all kinds of groups. Go snorkeling, swimming, island hopping, sightseeing, and enjoy the sunset at the end of the day. Needless to say, you don’t need to be an experienced angler to join. On this boat, everybody’s welcome and everybody has fun!

It all starts on a 26’ Grand Island pontoon that accommodates up to 6 guests. With lots of cozy seating space, both in the shade and under the sun, everybody will have their spot to chill. But the center of attention is always on the water slide that throws you right into the sea. The boat also has a portable toilet and a cooler for your drinks.

You’ll be fishing inshore, targeting species like Spanish Mackerel, Barracuda, Mangrove Snapper, Grunter, Shark, and more. You’ll use light tackle and spinning, which are great techniques for beginners. You get to keep the catch at the end of the trip and the crew will clean it free of charge. If you enjoy a tasty fish meal, don’t forget to bring a cooler for your fillets.

All fishing equipment, licenses, bottled water, and snacks are included in the price. Feel free to bring anything you need and don’t forget your sun protection. Please don’t bring glass bottles and spray sunscreen.

An exciting trip with Manicsportfishing is only a few clicks away. Pick the one that’s perfect for you and welcome aboard!

    Many of our customers have expressed that an hour trip is a little too short and a four hour a little too long especially with young children. This trip is designed to get you and your group out on the water catching some smaller swallow water fish. You can also go down the water slide and enjoy a tour of the islands. We can’t wait to show you an affordable, fun, and unforgettable experience in the Heart of the Florida Keys!
