Blue Safari Sportfishing Charters

SE 17th St
Fort Lauderdale FL, United States

Spend the day going after prestigious pelagic predators with Blue Safari Sportfishing Charters. Whether you’re a group of first-time anglers or seasoned sea wolves looking for their new personal best, they’ll match premier customer service with fantastic local knowledge!

Captain Terry Harber invites you to join him on board his impressive 40’ Ocean Yacht. She’s a splendid vessel, with ample space for 6 anglers to move around while chasing the hottest bite. Powered by twin outboard Caterpillar engines with 420 HP each, you’ll get to your fishing grounds quickly.

Maintaining fishing focus on longer trips isn’t easy, that’s why she’s fully equipped with all the comforts a modern angler may need. A full head toilet brings peace of mind, while a freshwater shower allows you to cool off during epic hook-ups. Take a break inside the fully air-conditioned cabin, but please don’t smoke in there. If you get peckish on longer trips you can prepare your snack in the onboard kitchen.

Capt. Terry will put you on the best bite in the waters off the coast of Ft. Lauderdale. You can target a wide range of blue-water big game like Sailfish, Blue and White Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, Permit, and many others. Anglers looking to hook a big trophy fish should give the day swordfishing trip a shot – just don’t forget your camera to document your amazing catch!

All necessary equipment will be provided to you by the charter. If you haven’t tried it yet, you should definitely try kite fishing, it’s quite unique!

Light snacks and water will be provided to help you keep your energy up. The crew will clean and fillet your catch on your way back to the marina, so don’t forget to bring a cooler.

Book a trip with Blue Safari Sportfishing to experience the rush of hearing the reel scream in the gorgeous waters off the coast of Florida!
