Cocoa Beach Sportfishing Charters is family owned and it is operated by Captain Tim Sheridan and his son Captain Beau. Both Tim and Beau are native to the Space Coast and they know the local waters like the back of their hands. Captain Tim’s father was also a charter captain: fishing is well and truly embedded in this family’s blood. Beau is Tim’s youngest son, and he is carrying on the family tradition with a passion and devotion that is hard to match. He has a natural ability to find fish and, like his father, will do everything possible to make sure you get the most out of your time fishing with him.
