MacDaddy Offshore Charters

MacDaddy Offshore Charters is located in Palm Coast and offers to take you on an unforgettable fishing experience for everyone to enjoy!

Capt. Mac, a Florida native, is here to get you on some fish and to make sure you have fun doing it. You’ll be using techniques like bottom fishing and trolling, depending on what you’re going after. As part of their 4 to 10-hour trips, you can target species like King Mackerel, Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Tuna, and Seabass, according to the type of trip, current season, and weather conditions.

You’ll be fishing from a sea-worthy 23’ Grady-White boat with enough room for up to 4 anglers.  6 passengers are possible, but contact the captain first. The vessel also includes a toilet and ice box. This classic Grady-White vessel was recently restored to live up to its legendary reputation of being among the best fishing boats out there.

The price of your trip includes all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a productive day on the water. The captain will supply all the needed fishing licenses for your trip, and you’re welcome to keep all legal species caught during the trip.

Want to bring the rest of the family along for the ride? Captain Mac is known to be patient with kids and novice anglers, so feel free to make it a family adventure.

The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
I remember fishing for the first time at 5 years old at summer church camp. Even at that early age I'm not sure who got hooked worse, me or the fish! Ever since then, fishing waters, especially the ocean, have been my sanctuary. Now I get to take you to one of the most beautiful places on the planet and share my passion with you.
