Fins and Grins Charters

Overseas Highway
Islamorada FL, United States

Join Fins and Grins for a family friendly fishing experience. Fishing out of the beautiful Islamorada, Florida, they have years of experience on the water throughout Florida and they guarantee that your time spent on the water with them will be unforgettable.

Fins and Grins fish aboard a recently restored 36 ft Hatteras that is fully equipped with state of the art electronics. Featuring a GPS that is fully stocked with all Captain Erik’s secret spots, as well as a fishfinder, radar, and VHF radio, the boat will get you to the best place to fish while keeping you in contact with the rest of the world. The boat’s twin Caterpillar engines give it a fast ride, allowing you to reach the fishing grounds quickly, and it features outriggers and downriggers for first rate trolling experiences.

Choose between a quick trolling trip, a ten hour trolling and bottom fishing trip, or anything in between. Decide which fish you want to target and, if the season is open, enjoy filling the fish boxes. If it is closed, don’t let that stop you coming out for an amazing catch and release trip.

All the tackle you will need is included in the price of the trip, but please make sure to bring any snacks or drinks you might like with you on your fishing adventure.
