For the biggest fish and most variety, many anglers choose the prolific offshore fishing available just off the coast of Cocoa Beach. Based in Port Canaveral, our fleet consists of the best charter boats and most knowledgeable captains in the Central Florida area. Once you hit the cerulean waters of the deep sea, the possibilities are endless. You can troll for dolphin, sailfish, kingfish, wahoo and a variety of other species, or you can drop baits down to the wrecks and reefs in hopes of battling a grouper, snapper or amberjack, or, if the conditions are right, you can even sight-cast to cobia and tripletail. Many times, you can do all of this and more in one offshore trip! Several of our boats can take up to 6 passengers, and the price includes all bait, ice, gear and tackle. We also have the only boat, Time and Tide I, in Cocoa Beach that can take more than 6 passengers on a private charter. The Time and Tide I can accommodate up to 18 passenger. So, don’t hesitate; send us a message or give us a call and let All Water Adventures set you up with the offshore charter of a lifetime.

The continental shelf tapers slowly on Florida’s East Coast and this means lots of area and structure to bottom fish. Though local knowledge is a plus, many wrecks, both accidental and man-made are published on fishing charts thus making them fishable to anyone with a loran or GPS. Year round, bottom fishing can be good for grouper, snapper, cobia, and many other tasty species. It is possible to catch gag, red, warsaw, snowy, kitty mitchel, and black groupers. The snappers consist of red, mangrove, mutton, lane, and the occasional yellowtail. amberjack, african pompano, and cobia will also be hanging on local structures looking for an easy meal. The incredible variety and the mystery of what each drop may hold make bottom fishing one of the local favorites.
An excellent and popular method of trolling for kingfish, cobia, dolphin, sailfish and the occasional giant wahoo. Boats catch their livebaits along the beach and near shore waters. The baits consist of mullet, pogies, and greenies. Pogies or menhaden are the most commonly caught bait. They are cast netted from large schools, which congregate in 30 to 6 feet of water along the coast. Large muddy areas and diving pelicans are good indicators that pogies are about. Watch and listen for small flips on the surface. A large, circular livewell with plenty of fresh water is a must to maintain that lively quiver. Livebait trolling is done near shore as well as offshore. The baits are trolled as slow as possible on light wire with 2 #4-6 treble hooks. A twenty pound conventional or spinning outfit is all that is needed as long as you have some line capacity. A light drag is essential to keep from pulling the small hooks being used. This is a popular type of fishing due to its relative simplicity and accessibility to smaller boats. There is nothing like seeing your bait get nervous and then get blasted from below.
The fertile waters lapping the coast of east central Florida are teaming with many diverse types of gamefish and sealife. Trolling is an effective and popular method of catching many of the resident and seasonal pelagic fish. The warm, northward flowing Gulf Stream is normally found approximately thirty miles from land and its fluid boundaries are often the haunts of dolphin, wahoo, sailfish and marlin. However one need not be in the Gulf Stream to catch fish. Most species come inshore to feed on the many different kinds of bait that gather over natural bottom contours and wrecks. Kingfish, blackfin tuna, cobia, barracuda, and little tunny are also frequently caught while trolling and give variety to a day’s action. Trolling methods vary as much as the fish to be caught. Anglers pull dead baits such as ballyhoo, mullet, and bonita strips. Alone or in combination with lures and skirts, these dead baits are resurrected to swim again. Artificial lures and spoons are also trolled and can be an effective way to cover more ground if the fish are spread out. Trolling slowly with live baits is a highly effective method when the fish are concentrated. Port Canaveral is one of the safest and most navigable inlets on the East Coast with an awesome charter fleet to choose from!
