Fun Day Charters offers saltwater fishing trips off the coast of South Florida and services Sarasota, Nokomis, Venice, and Englewood. Join a courteous and respectable team for a productive day on the prolific waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Bring your family friends or business partners and have a fun time fishing. Start your offshore adventure for the biggest fish around!

Put dinner on the table, mount your trophy catch, or just take a picture and release the fish. The list of your potential catches is as impressive as it can be. You will be able to battle Sharks, Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Barracuda, Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, Amberjack, Kingfish, and even the smaller fish.

All you have to do is book a trip and step on board a 27’ World Cat catamaran. The vessel is great for deep sea fishing and can take up to 6 anglers. It comes powered by a couple of 225 HP Suzuki engines and can cruise at a top speed of 30 knots. The boat is fully outfitted with top-notch navigational and electronics, a live well, and other professional accessories. There is a bed onboard, along with all the necessary safety equipment and life jackets for dogs. Pets are also welcome to join the adventure!

Fun Day Charters will provide you with everything you need for a day on the water. The trips come with gear and tackle by Shimano and Penn. While some local Captains may charge a 20% up-front gratuity fee, Fun Day Charters doesn’t. The Fun Day crew believes that gratuities should be based on merit, at the discretion of the customer and based on the pleasure of the fishing or boating experience. Tipping is always greatly appreciated.

Fun Day Charters offers a Money Back Guarantee if you don’t catch fish!

Whether you are fishing for the very first time, you are an accomplished angler, or just want to see what the excitement is all about, let Fun Day Charters show the art of sport fishing.

I possess a USCG 100 Ton Near Coastal, Master's, and a Marine Towing License. I've been boating and fishing since I was a little boy on Long Island and it's been my life's passion ever since. I fish because I love the sea, boats, open water, thrill of the catch, and dining on seafood. Come join me and we'll all have a safe, fun day! (Veteran owned and operated)
