TIme and Tide Charters are the only private deep sea fishing boat in Cocoa Beach, Port Canaveral that can legally take more than six passengers at a time. Licensed to take up to 16 passengers, this boat offers the space needed for larger fishing parties while still being a cost effective option for smaller groups.

Fishing takes place aboard a comfortable 38ft Delta that was built locally in Cape Canaveral specifically for fishing Florida’s east coast. It is furnished with a restroom and a galley that provides plenty of shade and a place to relax while on your trip. Top of the line electronics and fishing equipment are all provided on board, and the boat has been recently refurbished to make it as up to date and well equipped as possible.

Time and Tide specialize in deep sea fishing. They use a variety of techniques including bottom fishing and trolling to target offshore species such as Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Sailfish, King Mackerel, Sharks, Barracuda, Amberjack, Wahoo, Snapper, Grouper and more.

The fun and knowledgeable crew is waiting to take you on a fun filled fishing trip!

We had a group of 9 ranging from 15-48 years old.  We had so much fun.  The boys are still talking about how amazing their night was.  Thank you so much for an incredible experience !!!  Completely worth it!!

Although all radio reports indicated the fishing was slow, Captain Ronnie and Adam knew exactly where to go.  We started out trolling and caught two huge Bonita and several large King Mackerel.  We moved out to deeper water and started hitting Red Snapper.  While landing one of the 25 plus pound snappers, a 7’ Sand Bar Shark bit it in half 3 feet from the boat. Adam said it was the “Tax Man” taking his share.  Captain Ronnie and Adam quickly rebaited with part of the Bonita we caught earlier, and hooked the “Tax Man”.  Watching it take the bait was amazing and fighting it was even better.  All in all, we caught (4) King Mackerel, (2) Bonita, (12) Red Snappers, and (1) Sand Bar Shark, not bad for a “slow day of fishing”.  We were able to safely release the Red Snapper and Shark.  When we return to port Adam filleted the Mackerel which we took back to our report to feed (4) families.  The boat had a huge canopy which provided shade when we weren’t catching fish.  Captain Ronnie knew where to go and when to leave a spot, while Adam kept us entertained with his fish calls and completely stupid jokes.  I would highly recommend this trip and will be rebooking next year.
