OFishal Business Charters II

‘OFishal Business II’ is the smaller of the two charter boats owned by the ‘OFishal Business’ charter company. With a large, custom-built marlin tower that offers lots of shade and room for controls, as well as plenty of deck space, this boat is a nice platform for a fishing trip around Port Canaveral and the surrounding waters. This 32 ft Stuart Angler is powered by a 330 HP Cummins turbo diesel engine that provides a speedy 22 knot cruise, and the boat is fitted out with top-of-the-line electronics, including a Furuno Fishfinder and GPS chart plotter, as well as an Icom VHF. There is also a Sony Marine stereo on board that can accept CDs or iPod if you want your own music to accompany your fishing trip. All the latest USCG approved safety gear is on board, and there is even a small cabin with an enclosed head (marine toilet).

OFishal Business is only a short 45 minute drive from Orlando and less than half an hour from Melbourne, Titusville and Cocoa beach. They offer a variety of fun, family-friendly and relaxing fishing trips for fishermen of all ages and levels of experience. While the team is very honest about what they offer, not wanting to take guests out in bad fishing conditions or if they think they won’t have fun, they always do the best they can to put their guests on fish. They employ a variety of fishing techniques for their various trips, ranging from tackling hefty, hard fighting ocean sport fish to providing more low-key fishing tours around the local area. When close to shore they target Triple Tail, Cobia, Flounder, Snook and more, while more experienced anglers hoping to go further out might look for Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo, Cobia, Grouper, Snapper and more. For those looking to try their hand at catching a Shark you can come close and personal with Jaws on an exciting night time excursion!

Capt. Alex Sorice has been fishing the Space and Treasure coasts for over 22 years. He has fished the whole east coast of Florida from North Florida right down to the end of the Keys. He has been a licensed captain since 1999 and has won or been placed in many tournaments both in Florida and the Bahamas. Capt. Shane Hartnett has been fishing out of Port Canaveral since the young age of 4 and has been fishing with us for the last 4 years. Shane enjoys catching many of the different species that the Port Canaveral waters have to offer. Capt. Shane loves being out on the ocean whenever possible and often enjoys commercial fishing to provide fresh fish to the seafood market when he is not taking clients fishing. Whether it is inshore, nearshore, or offshore, Capt. Shane enjoys it all and will do everything he can to put his clients on fish and help them have a trip of a lifetime! OFishal Business charters are proud to have an A + rating from the Better Business Bureau.
