Get Down Fishing Charters

Based out of Port Canaveral, Get Down Fishing Charters is perfectly located to get you to some world-class fishing grounds, just 45 minutes out of Orlando. Captain Tim Fletcher has been running deep sea fishing trips in the area since 1997, and boasts a lifetime of experience on the water. He promises to use all his knowledge and skills to help you fill the boat.

Step aboard the “Get Down”, a 32’ Prowler offshore sportfishing vessel and sail away to the fishing trip of a lifetime. A modern vessel, she was restored in 2015, and is powered by a 385 HP Caterpillar Turbo-Diesel engine. She boasts plenty of space for up to 6 anglers, with an enclosed cabin to provide shade and shelter from the elements. Take advantage of the private head and heated freshwater shower, and make yourself at home.

When it comes to the fishing, you’ll have everything you need for a productive day. The boat comes equipped with a GPS, fishfinder, and VHF radio to get you to the sweet spots. Climb up to the flybridge for a better view of the fishing grounds, and let the outriggers and downriggers troll for you. Using the latest rods and reels, you’re all set to start reeling ‘em in.

Your adventure will take you up to 30+ miles offshore in the beautiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Whether you’re looking to try bottom fishing, trolling, or even spearfishing, Get Down Fishing Charters has you covered. Make use of all these techniques, as you target Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack, Sailfish, Tuna, Dolphin, Cobia, Wahoo, King Mackerel, and many more, on what promises to be a productive day out.
