(30) Going fast!

Time and Tide Charters is the only private deep sea fishing boat in Cocoa Beach, Port Canaveral that can take more than six passengers at a time. Licensed to take up to 16 passengers, this boat offers the space needed for larger parties while still being cost effective for smaller groups. Under the guidance of Captain Dustin Rapp, who has been fishing since he can remember, you’ll head up to 40 miles offshore to tackle some big game fish.

Fishing takes place aboard a comfortable 38’ Delta that was built locally in Cape Canaveral, specifically for fishing off of 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 was refurbished in 2016 to make it as up to date and well-equipped as possible.

While aboard, you will specialize in sea fishing, using a variety of techniques including bottom fishing and trolling to target big game species such as Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Sailfish, King Mackerel, Sharks, Barracuda, Amberjack, Wahoo, Snapper, Grouper, and more. Rods, reels, and tackle are provided, along with lures and live bait, to entice the bite. The boat is also fitted with downriggers to try to give you the maximum advantage when trying to attract fish.

With a first mate on board, any questions you have will be answered immediately, and you’ll have all the support you need, should you be an inexperienced angler. For any aficionados, these waters will see you tackle some of the most prestigious and exciting fish around, so fear not! The fun and knowledgeable crew is waiting to take you on a fun filled fishing trip with Time and Tide Charters, so get booking and start hooking!
