Port Canaveral's Information Site On Charter Fishing
Deep Sea Fishing and Offshore Fishing on Florida's East Coast
Tuesday April 24, 2018
Canaveral is famous for it's abundant sealife and sprawling continental shelf that juts out almost 35 miles east of Port Canaveral before spiraling down to the depths of the Gulf Stream and then to the outer canyons some 100 miles or so beyond the Canaveral National Seashore.
A typical day of fishing around Canaveral's shallow shoals, reef ridges and wrecks offer live baiting for king mackerel, amberjack and often the elusive cobia. During the spring run when the water temperature rises, the cobia migration is second to none off Port Canaveral's beaches. If the bottom fishing is cooperating, the snapper and grouper is always a good bet with anglers if they can "turn the handle Randal", which is our way of motivating anglers to PULL THAT FISH IN before it swims in a hole and breaks you off. It's a great challenge for anglers and the rewards are worth every bit of it!
During transition months in spring and fall you'll find dorado or mahi mahi, sailfish and other pelagic making their way though Canaveral's indigo blue waters as they migrate up and down the coastline. Summer months can be spectacular nearshore fishing for Spawning King Mackerel, Cobia, Tripletail, Jack Crevelle and more. Winter months can be challenging for Charter Fishing as the Atlantic Ocean can churn large swells, choppy seas and wind preventing fishing charter vessels from departing Port Canaveral's safe harbor.
Exiting Port Canaveral you'll notice it's rock jetties and light house peering out to the Atlantic. Schools of Jack Crevalle swim anxiously around the water seeking to trounce on prey like piranha. On the buoy line you can seasonally sightfish for cobia and tripletail, while the more adventurous push further offshore for king mackerel, wahoo, mahi-mahi, sailfish and possibly. Pleasure has no boundaries here... there is something for everyone from the novice to the expert angler, Port Canaveral has the most fishing excitement anywhere!

Where is Port Canaveral Florida?
Finding Port Canaveral from Orlando is easy and close as the Orlando International Airport is a straight shot from the exit on SR 528 or the Beachline. Simply head east from MCO (airport) on SR 528 and continue for 46 miles to the Port Canaveral Terminal B exit on George King Boulevard and you're there.
Port Canaveral is directly east of Orlando on Florida's east coast and Atlantic Ocean shoreline. It's Orlando's closest beaches and most laid back atmosphere. South of Daytona and directly north and adjacent to Cocoa Beach the City of Cape Canaveral is snuggled between the Kennedy Space Center on Canaveral's National Seashore and Brevard County's beautiful Cocoa Beach.
