Sea Hawk Fishing Charters

Sea Hawk Fishing Charters is a family owned and operated business based in Miami, Florida. They have been sharing their wealth of experience with customers since 1978, providing unparalleled service along the way. They know fishing is about more than landing a great catch, which is why Captain Bob Dillard makes your comfort a top priority. Join him for a memorable experience and a chance to see what Miami sport fishing is all about!

You will cruise the sea in style aboard the “Sea Hawk,” a 40’ fiberglass Trojan Sport Fish. This vessel comes equipped with everything you need for deep sea fishing. On board you will find top of the line tackle, outriggers for trolling, and a fighting chair. The live bait tank will keep your bait fresh, while the boat’s advanced fishing technology will help put you on fish.

There’s room on deck for six anglers to fish in comfort. When you’re not reeling in a hard fighting trophy, you can relax in the spacious cabin. Air conditioning, comfortable seating, an onboard toilet, and multimedia options will help you to feel at home.

Your fishing trip begins at the bayside in downtown Miami, where you will cast a few lines before heading offshore. You will have a chance to fish the wrecks and the edge with heavy international tackle for species such as Snappers and Groupers.

You can also troll 3-5 miles offshore for pelagics like King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, and Sailfish. Anglers aboard the Sea Hawk have been known to catch Blue Marlin and large Amberjacks from time to time, as well. When the season allows, you may have a chance to fish up to 15 miles from shore.

Capt. Bob provides Penn fishing gear. Most fishing is done with live bait, using spinning tackle along the edge and Spiderwire lines when dropping out deeper.

Sea Hawk Fishing Charters include a fishing license and snacks. You are welcome to keep your catch and the crew will clean and fillet it for you.

Come aboard and experience Miami sport fishing in style!

Capt. Bob has lived in Miami all his life and knows the area just about as well as anyone could do, probably. He grew up fishing the deep sea waters off Miami and has been in the fishing charter business since the late 70s.
