The secret to this location’s incredible angling action is in its name. It’s one of the busiest cruise ports in the world, and you’ll find plenty of Port Canaveral fishing charters dotted among the ocean liners and cargo ships! Located on an inlet that connects the Banana River with the mighty Atlantic, it offers access to prolific inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing grounds.
 
Port Canaveral’s location is perfect for deep sea fishing. A full day trip will give you the time to travel up to 40 miles offshore, where you’ll come face-to-gills with hard fighters such as Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Sailfish, and Wahoo. Want to really test your strength and skills? Many captains offer extended day or multi-day trips that’ll take you to the 100-mile Gulf Stream “sweet spot,” where gigantic Yellowfin Tuna and Marlin lie in wait. If you'd rather hit nearshore waters, King Mackerel, Cobia, Amberjack, and Groupers are a popular target.
 
If you’re a newer angler or want to spend less time on the water, fear not – Port Canaveral offers up plenty of exciting inshore and nearshore action, too. Explore mangrove-lined shorelines on a half day trip for anything from Bluefish and Tarpon, to Spotted Seatrout. September is a particularly prolific month for these waters – it’s when the huge Bull Redfish show up! Many captains offer full day trips for light tackle and fly enthusiasts who want to battle these beasts.
 
You’ll find a wealth of charters departing from the port itself, accessible from the city of Cape Canaveral. There’s something on offer for everyone, so come fish Port Canaveral your way!

Rules & Regulations

Hop aboard a Port Canaveral fishing charter, and your captain will provide your license for you, as well as all the necessary fishing gear. Seasonal restrictions and bag limits apply to some of the species here, and casting off alongside an experienced guide will ensure you’re fishing within the law.

January

Come to Port Canaveral in January, and you'll understand why the Space Coast doesn't have a low season. Offshore, Sailfish, Tuna, and Mahi are biting. Windy? No problem. Hit inshore waters for some famous fish.

February

It’s colder than usual, but it’s also southeast Florida! Strong winds can make getting offshore a challenge, but if you make it out, you could catch anything from Tuna to Mahi Mahi.

March

The inshore action heats up as the weather transitions into spring. Target Trout, Redfish, and Snook. Nearshore, Cobia starts to arrive on its migration. Don’t miss the the Cobia Madness Tournament at Sunrise Marina!

April

Snook fishing is on fire in the Port Canaveral area in April. Target them around the docks and mangrove islands. Take a deep sea fishing charter, and you could be catching King Mackerel, Amberjack, and Mahi Mahi.

May

Things start to get really exciting in May, with lots to catch on a charter or in a competition. Test your skills and try for a cash prize at the May Dolphin Tournament or the Central Florida Offshore Anglers Tournament!

June

It’s peak season, and oh my, will you know it when you come to the docks. Look for Mahi, Amberjack, Kingfish, and Grouper. Get inspired at the Canaveral Mac Attack - this is the best time of year to take home a smoker!

July

It might be hot out, but that doesn’t stop the fish. This is peak season for Tarpon fishing, with big Kingfish also migrating along the beaches close to Port Canaveral. Up for a challenge? Look for Sailfish and Wahoo offshore.

August

Expect the beaches to be packed all along the Space Coast. Head out on the water first thing in the morning and catch your fill before the tourists even wake up. You'll get the best bite and beat the heat.

September

As the crowds disperse, fishing in Port Canaveral gets better than ever. The inshore fish are bigger than ever, with big Bull Redfish, Trout, and Black Drum all biting. Look for Cobia as it returns southwards from its migration.

October

If there is such a thing as a shoulder season in southeast Florida, this is it. Expect fewer crowds on the beaches and in the charter boats. Wahoo and Sailfish are found offshore, with Bull Redfish spawning inshore.

November

Make the most of the lull in the crowds and catch the biggest fish of your life on light tackle - we're talking big Bull Redfish. Expect choppy conditions offshore. If it's safe, head out to catch Sailfish, Wahoo, and Mahi!

December

Celebrate the festive season with smoked Mackerel! December means the Kingfish run, which makes for some of the best fun you can have on the water.

Just check local laws on what you can keep and what you can’t keep. Our captain put us on the fish and we had a blast. What we could keep was limited. But we had so much fun it didn’t even matter.

Yes. There are a lot of captains there that can keep you busy. That area also has a hotspot for fish to inhabit. We’ve had a great experience for different chargers.

go to Rising Tide Tap and Table for lunch or dinner. IT is without question NOT tourest table food. Sunrise Marina has a great tackle store. IF you fish with Rick on the Chellie there is a Pool at Cape Marina you can take a dip in. It is a secret gem!!!

Be watchful of weather, it changes quickly! No reflection of any fishing business, just part of the area. Storms move in quickly. Take motion sickness meds, the water can get choppy in areas. Parking was easy. Cook your catch restaurants nearby were awesome.

Our family had a blast fishing. The captain took us straight to the fish and we had a great experience. We all got great catches and was able to bring enough meat home for several meals for the entire family. The captain was very patient and did great with the kids. Would highly recommend Reel Magic Charters.

We had a morning fishing trip booked with Troy. He knew where the fish were and we caught a great variety of fish including snook and red fish, flounder, Jack's and Spanish mackerel. Troy was always ready to bait hooks and take off fish. Very special day!

Captain Art and first mate Travis were absolutely amazing! The weather wasn't the greatest but they went from place to place to be sure that we got fish. I would absolutely recommend them to everyone that is thinking about chartering. They are honest, caring and very helpful. They will make sure you have a great time.

Patriot Charters was a great experience for our group. We arrived at our fishing spot and the crew had us all set with poles and bait. We hit the water with our fishing lines and bang, a fish. We hit our limit around noon. All the fish were good size king mackerel. The first mate also did a really good job cleaning the fish afterwards. A bunch of fun and a good day fishing.

Greg was fantastic. Took us right to the fish. He had to deal with an 8 and 4 year old who had never been on a fishing boat before. He was patient, kind, and quick to rebait the hook. We lost track of how many fish were caught in our short 3 hour trip. Communication with Greg prior to our trip (rescheduling on our part) was a breeze. Easy to work with. Highly recommend!!!
