If you are looking for a deep sea adventure, then Full Circle II Sportfishing is for you. With over 30 years of experience, and having won over one million dollars on various fishing tournaments, Captain Mike is a great choice for your next fishing trip. In his own words, Full Circle Sportfishing offers one of the “fastest, largest and most completely updated charter boats in Fort Lauderdale!”

The “Full Circle II” is a customized 56’ Viking with a fast 28-knot cruise and a 34-knot top end.  The interior is immaculate, with 2 large sofas, a 52” TV with Direct TV, 3 bathrooms, A/C, microwave, full-size refrigerator in the cabin, and insulated in-deck coolers. She has everything you need to enjoy a perfect day on the water.

This boat has been tried and tested in many tournaments, and on her Capt. Mike has won Ocean City Tuna Tournament, the Ocean City Canyon Kick-Off, the White Marlin Open, and the Bahamas Billfish Classic. They offer one of the most experienced, friendly, and professional crews in Fort Lauderdale. They know the best places to fish to make sure you have the most memorable day. You will fish a range of methods. Capt. Mike and his First Mate will talk you through the basics and have you fishing like a pro in no time.

Capt. Mike will have you targeting Mahi Mahi, Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Snapper, Shark, and Kingfish to name a few. All billfish will be released, but any meat fish are filleted and bagged for you to take home at the end of the trip. You only have to decide how you will cook it!

All that’s left to do is bring your two small coolers for food and drink (or one large cooler) and meet Captain Mike for your deep sea fishing adventure with Full Circle II Sportfishing!

    6 Hour Trip, starts at 8:00 AM

    A 6 hour trip allows the boat to get to the edge of the Gulf Stream and find bigger and more fish.

By getting to the fish faster means you'll have more time fishing! You'll be able to target Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Wahoo. Your fishing license is covered by the boat, please bring your own food and drink.
