Depending on the season, you’ll target beauties such as Mahi Mahi, obstinate Amberjacks (also known as Reef Donkeys), drag-screaming Wahoos, and delicious Snappers and Groupers, as well as many more.

Whether you’re an experienced angler looking to fill the boat, or a beginner looking for your first catch, the first mate will be on hand throughout the trip to help you with everything from baiting your hook to pulling in your catch.

At the end of the trip, the crew will even clean and fillet your catch for you to take home, so there’s not much left for you to do. Just bring along some snacks and get ready for an amazing day on the water with Cocoa Beach Sportfishing!
