Port Canaveral, Florida has a long-standing legacy. The area is well known for providing professional deep sea fishing charters. It’s a popular choice in Central Florida for a number of reasons. Easy access from Cocoa Beach and Orlando. Close proximity to the cruise terminals and the variety of fish species you can catch.
Easy Access from Cocoa Beach
First of all, Cocoa Beach is a popular destination year round. The beaches are large and inviting. The resorts and hotels have affordable rates with friendly staffs. Also, there is plenty to do at nearby attractions and some great local restaurants to visit like Grills Seafood Deck & Tiki Bar.
As a result, Port Canaveral provides a convenient access point from Cocoa Beach. It’s a chance to go deep sea fishing in the Atlantic Ocean on an offshore fishing charter boat.
Orlando’s Closest Deep Sea Fishing Port
Coming from Orlando or the attractions usually takes about 45 mins to an hour. Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World are closer to an hour of travel time total. Therefore, if there’s a convenient, easy to get to fishing charter in Central Florida, it has to be our Ocean Obsession Fishing charter. We’re located close to the 528 Beachline Express. There is ample free parking in the area.
The Excursion before the Cruise
In addition to convenience, going deep sea fishing on the Ocean Obsession Fishing charter is one of the most economical ways to charter a fishing boat in Florida. As a result, many guest are coming into to town a few nights before their cruise and going on local excursions. With tickets starting at $60 for a half day fishing trip, it’s becoming a very popular pre-cruise adventure for the Cocoa Beach area.
Wide Variety of Fish Caught in Port Canaveral Florida
Finally, the fishing can be amazing. There are offshore wrecks, the Canaveral Bight shark fishing grounds, underwater reefs, rock ledges and the Atlantic Gulf stream all within 50 miles of Port Canaveral. These different elements and structures allows for an incredibly diverse selection of fish species to be caught offshore. On the Ocean Obsession II we routinely see different types of snappers caught, Red Snapper, Lane Snapper, Silky Snapper, & our favorite the Mangrove Snappers. Common catches include Sea Bass, Cobia, Sharks, Groupers, Amberjack, and Grey Triggerfish. Occasionally guest catch Pompano, King mackerels, Mahi Mahi, Flounders and Sailfish.
