There are several fishing yachts available, all equipped with crew, bait, fishing gear, GPS, radio and other navigation equipment. The tours have a schedule of 8am-1 and 1-5pm, although in some cases if a large specimen is on the line that might alter the schedule 30-60 minutes. For more information contact 1-305-677-2616 or visit the fishing tour page.

P.D. some endangered species such as the billfish (Marlin, Sailfish) and also the Goliath Grouper and Caribbean Parrotfish should be treated under the catch and release term. They’re great for sports fishing and photo ops, and releasing them ensures a healthy supply for the sport.
