Cocoa Beach Sportfishing – 51'

25 reviews
In demand!

Step aboard the largest charter boat in Port Canaveral with Cocoa Beach Sportfishing Charters and see why a trip aboard the “Crude Intentions” is one that you will never forget. Join the family and let the Sheridans create a package that will suit your own, personal needs.

The Crude Intentions is truly something special. At 51’, this custom offshore sportfishing yacht lacks nothing as far as comfort and sportfishing are concerned. Its powerful diesel engine powers it quickly towards deep waters that are out of bounds for ordinary charter boats, while the stunning 17’ Carolina flare cuts through the waves to give you a dry and comfortable ride.

Below deck, you will find all the comforts of home, with an air-conditioned salon complete with comfortable couches. There’s a clean restroom as well, a shower and head, and a kitchen with a refrigerator.

It’s unlikely you will want to stay below deck for long. The crew is known for giving their guests exciting hands-on action, and with the option to travel offshore into the depths of the Atlantic, you will have plenty to keep you busy.

If you have always wanted to catch a Billfish, a huge Grouper or Snapper, this could be your chance. Shorter trips are also available – these can be the perfect introduction to sportfishing for people who want to catch big game fish in style. Any fish that you would like to take home will be cleaned for free at the end of your trip. Don’t forget to tip the crew if you enjoyed your trip!

Join Cocoa Beach Sportfishing and explore some of the most prolific waters in Florida, making some amazing memories!

Cocoa Beach Sportfishing Charters is family owned and it is operated by Captain Tim Sheridan and his son Captain Beau. Both Tim and Beau are native to the Space Coast and they know the local waters like the back of their hands. Captain Tim’s father was also a charter captain: fishing is well and truly embedded in this family’s blood. Beau is Tim’s youngest son, and he is carrying on the family tradition with a passion and devotion that is hard to match. He has a natural ability to find fish and, like his father, will do everything possible to make sure you get the most out of your time fishing with him.
