Seashift Adventure Charters

Seashift Adventures runs year round fishing trips out of New Smyrna Beach, FL. These fisheries can reward you with bags full of solid catch, both inshore and further out. To assist you on that journey, Seashift Adventures has a skillful captain, a boat fit for the occasion, and will to make your trip memorable and worth the while.

These waters are home to the likes of Redfish, Tarpon, Snook, Sharks, Amberjacks, Cobia, King Mackerel, and further out Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. You will take them on aboard a 24’ saltwater fishing boat of custom make. She is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and can get you to the fishing grounds quite quickly. The vessel is rigged with navigational electronics, has a live bait well, and stores safety equipment.

Once you get onboard, Captain Josh will provide the fishing gear, lures, and bait. He will tailor the techniques so that you could get the most out of your trip. He will provide the fishing license, and will bring a cooler for your food and drinks. There is water onboard, and you should pack your own food, snacks, and beverages of choice. It’d be good to bring a cap, sunblock, sunglasses, and comfortable footwear and clothes. If prone to seasickness, you may want to pack some medication just in case. And, of course, don’t forget the camera.

Captain Josh has over a decade of fishing experience. He knows these waters well and enjoys spending time on the water. In addition to working as a firefighter, Captain Josh runs fishing trips to cater to any angler, whether a novice or a true pro. Find your spot and come along for a nice day out.

Trip departure times are subject to change to accommodate clients and/or weather conditions. Let the captain know if you’re in a hurry—charters may go over the allotted time to accommodate for travel to and from fishing areas.

Seadrift Adventure Charters looks to optimize your time on the water so you can maximize your time actually fishing!

I started fishing as soon as I was able to hold a pole. I enjoyed the waters of Southwest Florida around Sanibel and Boca Grande. If it involves the outdoors you will find me there and passing on the sportsmanship and ethics of the great outdoors is my passion. I don't just take you fishing I help make you a better angler. I don't hide anything and answer any questions you may have. My goal is to provide you a memorable experience and catch a few fish while doing it. Inshore, offshore, and anything in between if it involves a boat I'd love to have you on board, you have your own boat and want to use it I'll be glad to step aboard for a day of fishing tips and techniques.
