Coastal Dreams Fishing is located in Islamorada and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters. The area’s easy access to offshore humps, close reef edges, wrecks, and proximity to the gulf stream make fishing in the area top-class. Fishing in Islamorada is guided by season, moon, tides, and weather. The crew will recommend the best trip for the time you have available. From competitive anglers to families just wishing to have fun, everybody on board will have a great day on the water.

Capt. Haden Browning has fished Islamorada for over 15 years and will do his best to provide you with a fun day full of fishing. This involves 4 to 8-hour trips, mainly fishing for Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, Snapper, Cobia, Wahoo, Tripletail, sharks, and more. You can expect to use techniques such as light tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, big game fishing, drift fishing, jigging, kite fishing, and spinning.

Your adventure starts on the Coastal Dreams, a 41’ Luhrs Express boat that can safely take up to 6 anglers. It boasts one of the widest beams in the fleet as well as the speed and comfort for getting to the fishing grounds. The express layout allows for great 360-degree seating where you can see all the action while being chilled with the saloon AC. Or you can take a break downstairs on the wrap-around couch and in the comfortable bathroom while taking a rest. The cockpit provides ample room for multiple hookups and for your group to share memories. The boat also features a livewell that can keep hundreds of live bait, a refrigerator, and a big ice box in the saloon.

All rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Your trip includes all the necessary fishing licenses for the day. The crew will filet and bag your catch.
