Daytripper Marine is located in Jacksonville Beach and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters. Captain Dave has been fishing the Jacksonville area for over 30 years and knows the best spots for the local fish.

He’ll do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 4 hour trips, mainly fishing for Redfish, Seatrout, Flounder, and Drum, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips you can expect to use techniques such as light tackle and jigging. Fishing structure and drop offs along the Intracoastal and St. Johns River waterways are Capt. Dave’s specialty.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 22’ Nauticstar boat that can safely take up to 4 adults and 2 children. This boat comes with a large T-top, high sides for safety, and is powered by a 200 HP Suzuki engine.

All rods, reels and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day. Adults and children are welcome aboard the Daytripper! Capt. Dave will even fillet your catch for you to take home! The boat will be supplied with drinks for your pleasure, be sure to let the captain know if you have any questions or want to bring your own.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Daytripper Marine. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen!
