Blue Waters II Fishing Charters

401 Biscayne Blvd
Miami FL, United States

The Blue Waters II is located at Bayside Marketplace next to the AA Arena in downtown Miami. Captain John and his son operate the 45’ Hatteras, and are committed to making the fishing trips fun and exciting. Along with a fully-equipped boat with tackle from light to monster (equipment mainly by Shimano), the Blue Waters II provides a cooler with beverages free for the trip.

The boat departs from Bayside which is a 10-minute run to the ocean. It provides air conditioning and comfortable seating, with head and galley down. Blue Waters II is decked with a standard selection of electronics and fishing technology (GPS, fishfinder, radio), and features a toilet as well as a fighting chair on board. Because this is a private charter you can usually pick your hours from early morning to late afternoon. If you would like to keep the fish you catch on your trip, there are several restaurants in the mall that can take your fish and create a meal for you (for a modest fee). The crew of Blue Waters II is happy to clean and fillet the fish for you following the trip.

Some of the species commonly targeted (depending on the time of year) include Sailfish, Tuna, Cobia, Wahoo, Dorado (Mahi Mahi), Snapper, Barracuda and more. The crew specializes in a variety of fishing techniques, including kite fishing, trolling, bottom fishing or dropping. They’ll supply your group with the appropriate fishing gear, complete with both live and artificial bait, and will cover your fishing licenses at no additional charge. Soft drinks and bottled water are included as well.

The Blue Waters’ summer special also includes free lunches on the Full day trips and an extra hour on the four hour trip.

Boat was clean captain and crew were professional at all times and patient with us.  The captain’s son was the one that kept the lines going he worked so hard all day and both wanted to be sure that we had an amazing experience.  A delicious lunch was provided for us and there were cool drinks for us to remain hydrated.  Although they already had some live bait when we first started out Captain John wanted to stop to catch more before we headed and out and that was a great experience as well.  They educated us on what they were doing and about the fish that were caught and the ones that got away
