Christopher Columbus Drive
Port Canaveral FL, United States

Canaveral Offshore Adventures offers a wide variety of fishing opportunity all year round. If you don’t think you can fit them into your busy vacation schedule, think again. Based only a short drive from Orlando and Disney, Captain Chris Hardy and his crew are there to put you on top of the hottest bite.

Chris is a true Floridian who has been an avid fisherman for over three decades. He has captained his own vessel on the east coast of Florida for over 10 years and has gained an extensive knowledge of the Canaveral area. His experience allows him to know where the finest species reside even 30 miles offshore.

Canaveral Offshore Adventures specializes in light and heavy tackle bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, fly fishing, jigging, popping, and drift fishing. You can expect to test your angling skills and battle Sailfish, Red Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, and Amberjack.

All of that magic happens aboard the “No Excuses”, a 26’ SeaVee center console. She is a brand-new fishing machine with a 315 HP Yanmar engine and plenty of space for up to 4 anglers. The No Excuses features a portable toilet, a GPS, a fish finder, outriggers, an ice box, and a live well loaded with bait. She is one of the fastest boats around. All aboard!

All trips come with the use of Penn gear and tackle, lures, bait, licenses, and a complimentary fish cleaning service. All you have to do is bring your own drinks and snacks.

There wasn’t a fifteen minute period that we went without having a fish on, and we all caught our limit of King Mackerel. Captain Chris was very experienced, knowledgeable, and most of all dedicated to making sure we had a great time! First experience on a fishing charter, and I was so impressed, I will definitely be back.
