Miami Beach FL, United States

Come aboard the Sea Cross and experience the best deep sea fishing in Miami!  At the helm is owner and operator Captain Rafael Mayans, an experienced guide who is dedicated to making every trip special. Join him for your chance to land the catch of a lifetime!

The Sea Cross is a 36’ custom rigged Hatteras Sportfishing Yacht, originally built in 1979 and restored in 2008. This vessel is prepared for some serious game fishing, equipped with a fly bridge, Tuna Tubes, and a fighting chair. Air conditioning and an onboard toilet cater to your comfort. Capt. Rafael can take up to six passengers on board, with room for four to fish comfortably.

What really makes your time aboard this boat memorable is the captain and crew. Capt. Rafael and his First Mate do their best to cater to every customer’s needs. They are great with anglers of all skill levels, including children. Rest assured they will show you how to target your catch using the most effective technique so you can bring home something unforgettable.

Off the coast of Miami Beach, you can target big game species anywhere between two-and-a-half and 15 miles from shore. The average catch includes Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Blackfin Tuna, Kingfish, Grouper, and more. You are likely to spend most of your time trolling, though you may try your hand at other techniques such as jigging, drift fishing, or kite fishing.

Trips aboard the Sea Cross include a fishing license and everything else you need. Capt. Rafael provides top of the line gear, featuring the likes of Penn, Shimano, and Daiwa. Depending on the species, you may keep your catch and the crew will clean and fillet it for you. Please note that a tip of 20% for the First Mate is customary.

Took my children out with Captain Sheldon and Peter.  The captain and Peter were knowledgeable and experienced and knew where to go to chase after fish.  They helped us catch some Tuna, Mackerels, and Mahi Mahi.  It was a pleasant and fun experience.

The only thing was that my children were a little bored at times when the action was slow.  On average, there was a bite every hour.  For adults, I would definitely recommend it.  For children, I think they wanted quantity more than quality.
