Join Avimar Fishing Co for offshore sport fishing targeting many exciting fish species. Captain Andres Bustamante has got over two decades of experience fishing off the coast of Miami. He and his crew are relentless in the effort of putting guests on the fish and will burn fuel and spend the extra time if necessary. Tight lines to all!

Your trip will start on a restored 30’ Baja Cruiser King Cat 296 offshore sport fishing boat. It can sit up to 5 guests and runs on a twin 225 HP Mercury engine. The onboard navigation equipment includes GPS, a fishfinder, USCG safety equipment EPIRB Global FIX V4, and a radio. The boat’s got a toilet, downrigger planers, livewell, and an ice-box. A first mate will also be there to address all your needs during the trip.

Miami’s nearshore and offshore waters will offer you a bunch of excellent fish species to catch. To name just a few, there’s Wahoo, Blue Marlin, King Mackerel, Cobia, Grouper, and Mahi Mahi. The techniques you can use to catch them also vary greatly. Using light and heavy tackle, you and the captain can bottom fish, deep sea fish, troll, spin, jig, as well as drift and kite fish. You can keep all the fish you catch if you want so and kids are also welcome to join the trip.

For the trip, you’ll only need to bring some food as Captain Andres covers you for everything else, including rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, drinks, and fishing licenses. Also, he’ll clean and fillet your fish so it’s ready for cooking when you return home.

Hop aboard and have a wonderful day fishing in Miami!
