Time and Tide Charters is the only private deep sea fishing boat in Cocoa Beach, Port Canaveral that can take more than 6 passengers at a time. 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.

You’ll fish aboard a comfortable 38’ Delta classic boat built locally in Cape Canaveral, specifically for fishing off of Florida’s east coast. There’s a restroom and a galley that provides plenty of shade and a place to relax while on your trip. Licensed to take up to 16 passengers, this boat offers the space needed for larger parties while still being cost-effective for smaller groups.

Capt. Dustin will provide you with rods, reels, and tackle, 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. The captain will be happy to clean and fillet your catch so you can take it straight to the table for a nice meal.

Expect to use a variety of techniques including bottom fishing and trolling to target some big game species. You’ll get the chance to reel in Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Sailfish, King Mackerel, Shark, Barracuda, Amberjack, Wahoo, Snapper, and Grouper.

There’s a first mate on board ready to answer any questions you might have. You’ll have all the support you need, if you’re 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!
