Sun and Fun Sportfishing

Sun and Fun Sportfishing offer a selection of trips targeting big game fish such as Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Sailfish, Swordfish and Wahoo offshore from Florida’s beautiful Riviera Beach.

The 38 ft Pearson flybridge you will be fishing aboard is the perfect vessel for offshore sportfishing, with a stable ride and plenty of deck space to do battle with those monster pelagics on.

She comes fully-equipped with a spacious interior, head, and bed, and up on deck she sports a fighting chair, live bait tank, outriggers, and flybridge. She uses GPS and fishfinder to locate the best spots to fish on, and comes with high-quality tackle and lures for different fishing techniques including kite fishing and trolling.

Captain Dom Van Epp and his skilled first mate simply love being out on the water, and like nothing better than to help people land some awesome fish, whatever level of skill or experience. So whether you are out on your first ever half day, or a seasoned pro trying for your personal best, you can rely on Sun and Fun Sportfishing to give you the perfect day on the water.

Captain Dom is dedicated to good service, and so the little details like cleaning and filleting your catch for free are a no-brainer for him, as is doing everything possible to make sure you have an amazing time on board, and that you go back with great memories and a huge smile - as well as some great fish!!

About the Captain

Member since March 2016

Captain Don Van Epp grew up on his father's charter boat, fishing from the age of four, and landing his first Sailfish when he was only 11. Since then, he has never lost his love of the ocean and has followed his passion his whole life. Captain Don is never happy until he gets his clients on fish and he will use everything he has learned over his long career to make sure that happens on every charter.
