Grouper Therapy Fishing Charters offers customized adventures on the waters out of Cape Coral, Florida. On a day out with the crew, get ready to experience a fishing trip that will be action packed from beginning to end. The beautiful Gulf of Mexico offers such a wide variety of species you never know what will be on the end of your line. Welcome aboard!

Enjoy your trip with Grouper Therapy Fishing Charters aboard a spacious 33-foot Hydra-sports center console, which comes powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines. This is a clean, seaworthy boat with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. It is equipped with state-of-the-art navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF radio, a radar, and a fish finder. The vessel provides enough fishing space for up to six anglers. An anchoring system is fitted to make sure you stay rooted to the fishing grounds and an ice-box keeps the catch fresh during the day. There is a live bait tank, as well as outriggers and downriggers for a professional fishing experience.

Grouper Therapy Fishing Charters specializes in fishing for Grouper, Red and Lane Snapper, Amberjack, and sharks but is not uncommon to find Cobia, King Mackerel, Bonito, and Mahi Mahi to crash the party! You may also find Blackfin Tuna, Tarpon, Permit, and Scup at the end of your fishing line.

A trip with Grouper Therapy Fishing Charters comes inclusive with all the necessary equipment to put your catch together. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures, as well as the licenses for you and your group. If you decide to keep the fish, it will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip for a ride home, where you can have it for dinner later. Or just stock the freezer! As well as that, the Captain provides ice and water for the trip, so just bring your lunch and snacks.

Stop wishin’ and go fishin’!
