Canaveral Fishing Adventures and Captain Chris Hardy welcome you to Cape Canaveral, Florida. Join them for a fishing adventure out of Port Canaveral or Cocoa Beach and have a wonderful time on the water. From various inshore to nearshore to offshore fishing locations, there’s plenty of opportunity for making a great catch, and Captain Chris is here to make sure you make one. Hop aboard and enjoy your trip with Canaveral Fishing Adventures!

You’ll be fishing from a 25’ Skeeter center console that can accommodate up to 4 guests. Powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine, it will quickly take you to the desired spots. It uses quality GPS, fishfinder, and radio navigation technology, and is equipped with downriggers and livewell. There is a portable onboard toilet you can use and you’ll have an ice-box to store your fish and drinks.

Depending on the season and conditions, you can fish nearshore off the beach, sight fishing for Cobia and Tripletail. Fishing inside the port can also be productive. There you can chase Redfish, Snook, Flounder, and Sheepshead, to name a few species. The inshore lagoon and Indian River also provide plenty of Redfish! There’s also a wide range of techniques you can use to catch fish. Using light and heavy tackle, you can bottom fish, troll, jig, spin, pop, drift fish, as well as fly fish. Everything you catch is yours to take home but you can instead release it back if you wish. Kids are more than welcome to join on board.

Captain Chris provides you with everything you’ll need for the trip except for fly fishing equipment, food, and drinks.

Visit Cape Canaveral and have a true fishing adventure in Florida!

I'm a true Florida native and have been fishing my entire life. I literally grew up fishing out of Port Canaveral and know these waters well. I have also dove most of our wrecks and have firsthand knowledge of exactly what I am fishing. When I am not running charters I am commercial fishing. This allows me to stay on the water and stay current with where the fish are. One of my favorite things to do on charters is put kids on fish. We are very family friendly and will ensure everyone has a great time.
