Book your next trip with K&A Charters for luxurious fishing aboard “The Fintastic” in Miami Beach, Florida. Trips are run by brothers Ron and Howard Albert, who strive to give their clients a spectacular experience. Join them and enjoy chasing after big game fish less than 10 miles from shore!

“The Fintastic” is a 44’ Blackfin, originally built in 1983 and restored in 2012. Powered by twin 375 HP Caterpillar engines, this vessel has a maximum cruising speed of 24 knots. She comes equipped with everything you need for proper big game fishing, from a fly bridge to a fighting chair. More than merely capable, this boat also caters to your comfort. Many onboard amenities provide upscale luxury, including air conditioning and leather seating in the galley.

While fishing off the coast of Miami Beach, you can target a variety of pelagic prizes within just two to seven miles of shore. A typical catch in these waters includes Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Barracuda, Kingfish, Sailfish, and much more. Choosing a six hour charter gives you time to target more species and the chance to try different techniques, such as live baiting, trolling, deep dropping, and kite fishing.

K&A Charters include a fishing license and top of the line gear by Penn, Shimano, and Daiwa. Live bait may be purchased for an additional cost of $40. Please note that crew gratuities are not included in regular charter prices.

For the best value, you can book an All Inclusive charter. These packages include crew gratuities, live bait (if available), your choice of breakfast or lunch, unlimited ice cold beer, bottled water, and soft drinks.

Come aboard “The Fintastic” today for luxurious fishing and a catch to remember!
