Pescado Charters

Pescado Charters welcomes you aboard to go fish out of Homestead, Florida. Kids and adults are invited to join in the fun: whether you have never caught a fish before or you’ve been doing it all your life, Captain Steve will do all he can to make sure you get the most out of the day. It’s time to enjoy your time on the water and make it memorable!

Captain Steve operates a roomy center console boat that has been meticulously maintained and recently rejuvenated. Fully equipped with all the necessary gear for both commercial and recreational fishing, it features a GPS, fishfinder, and radar, as well as a brand new 2017 Suzuki engine. Step aboard, feel the wind in your hair, and get ready to battle that fish you have always wanted to catch.

Pescado Charters specializes in offshore adventures, and can take you out in search of Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Tuna, among many others. Otherwise, try your hand at bottom fishing over the local patch reefs or over deeper reefs and wrecks offshore. If you are hoping to reel in a tasty Snapper or Grouper, then this is the technique for you!

As well as conventional fishing charters, Captain Steve offers spearfishing and snorkeling, as well as eco tours. Just let him know how you would like to spend your day on the water and he will help you create a package to suit your needs.

Fishing for food? Captain Steve will do everything he can to make sure you can take something home to cook up, and he will even clean and fillet your catch after the trip so it’s ready for the table. Let’s go catch that trophy fish you’ve been dreaming of!

Born in St.Croix, Virgin Islands and raised in Key Largo Fl. Fishing has always been a passion of mine and seeing people enjoy their time on the water. After so many years of fishing myself and learning the trade, I now enjoy taking people and families and kids out so they can also have an experience they never forget.
