Miami FL, United States

Choose Miami Charter Boat for world class sport fishing in Miami, Florida. Captain Carlos Mendez and his crew are legendary along the coast of South Florida for consistently reeling in big game fish within just a few miles of shore. They specialize in kite fishing with live bait for Sailfish year-round, even when no one else is catching them. Join them for this iconic big game species and more, and you could reel in your next biggest catch within minutes of leaving the dock!

Step aboard “Masita III,” a 51’ Hatteras Sportfish powered by twin 8V-71 Detroit Diesel engines. This vessel is fitted with tournament grade tackle and the latest fishing technology, bringing you the best of Miami sport fishing. On board you will find tackle sponsored by Penn, a fighting chair, and plenty of space for up to six passengers. A spacious flybridge provides seating for everyone, where you can enjoy magnificent views.

While fishing with the Miami Charter Boat crew you will have a chance to learn about their own tournament-verified tactics. You’ll receive professional guidance for targeting the most prestigious species known to sport fishermen, including Sailfish, Wahoo, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and more. With all of these species swimming just three to 15 miles offshore, you can experience big fishing to the fullest without spending hours to get there.

While they typically target big game fish for catch and release, you are welcome to take home any eating fish you catch and the crew will clean and fillet it for you back at the dock.

Trips with Miami Charter Boat include a fishing license and all the gear you need. Snacks, drinks, and lunch are available at an additional charge. Live bait will be caught during the trip, or you may request to have it ready and waiting on board for an additional charge. 

Come aboard today for a world class sport fishing experience that most anglers only dream about!
