Fishing the waters surrounding the Florida Keys is many an angler’s dream. At C & C Aqua Adventures, we can provide a day full of fun and adventure while trying your luck at any of the many fish who call our waters home. We welcome everyone from the novice to the salty fishermen/women.

Our charters cast off at an early start from our dock with our boat ready to go with fuel, bait, fishing gear, ice and cold water for your consumption. We also provide your fishing license as part of our service. You may bring your own drinks such as soda, sports drinks and snacks if you wish. Alcohol is not allowed on our boat.

 If you are prone to seasickness or think you might be, we recommend you consult with your doctor about taking motion sickness medication. These meds seem to provide better protection if taken the night before and the morning of your trip and you may want to use the non-drowsy type.  Follow your doctor's recommendations. Try not to indulge in heavy alcohol consumption the night before and avoid a heavy breakfast and opt instead for something simple. You should bring sun block and lip sun protection, sun glasses, hat, long sleeve shirt and long pants and a change of clothes to short sleeves, short pants and a towel. Believe it or not, we may have some “cold” weather during our winter months which gets amplified by the wind and the cool temperature of the ocean so in those months you should bring a jacket. Our boat offers some protection from the sun, wind and rain but it is not 100%. And most important of all, bring a camera to preserve your memories and don’t forget any medication you may need during the day. At the end of your trip, you may take your catch home with you. We will fillet your catch unless we have another charter booked right afterwards. We don’t charge for this service but tips are always appreciated.

A 25% deposit is required. The balance will be due upon arrival at the dock before departure. If you cancel less than 48 hours prior to departure, you will be refunded your money minus a $100 cancellation fee. 

What to bring:

Sunblock, camera, food & beverage (we supply water)

Reef Trips

Half Day (AM or PM): $650.00 (plus tax)

Full Day: $900.00 (plus tax)

Our morning trips leave the dock at 7:30 am and lines out at 11:30 am. Afternoon charters leave at 1:00 pm and lines out at 5:00 pm.

Full day trips depart at 7:30 am and lines out at 3:30 pm.

It takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes to reach the reef depending on the condition of the sea. We will drop anchor, chum up the waters and start fishing both on the surface and on the bottom. All fishing regulations will be followed including size and number of fish limits and any seasonal closures. The captain will decide to move to different spots in order to find the fish. We will happily bait your hooks and dehook any fish you bring in. If they are keepers and you decide to keep them, they will promptly be put on ice.

If baitfish show up on the chum slick, we will try to net some for use.

You will be instructed as to what to do such as letting line out and when to start reeling. We prefer you feel the bite and bring the fish in. Once boat side, WE will bring the fish on board either by hand, net or gaff.

This avoids injuries to you or to the fish in case we have to release it.

We ask that you DO NOT touch hooks, knives or gaffs.

We will try to position you for pictures with safety always first and that means we might be holding the fish and appear on your photos with you.

 Off Shore Trips

 Full Day Only: $1050.00 (plus tax)

 Our trips leave the dock at 7:30 am and lines out at 3:30 pm.

We will travel past the reef which is around five miles from shore and head to deeper water. The time for this trip varies depending on sea conditions and where the captain decides where waters are “fishy” at which point lines will be put out in a trolling pattern.

This means the boat engines will be running and in gear in order to “swim” the baits behind the boat.

We will put 3 to 4 lines out with any combination of dead natural baits or artificial lures. When a fish hits, we will take the rod out of the rod holder and pass it along to the designated angler. This will be up to the charter party. If more than one fish hits, rods will be passed out as per the party.

Sometimes a school of fish will follow the hooked fish to the boat and we will have light tackle rods on the ready to pitch out baited hooks to the school.

This will be a hectic time on the boat and it is extremely important that you follow our instructions to avoid injuries and to be able to bring fish onto the boat.

You will be instructed as to what to do such as letting line out and when to start reeling. We prefer you reel the fish in. Once boat side, WE will bring the fish on board either by hand, net or gaff.

This avoids injuries to you or to the fish in case we have to release it.

At times, the captain will instead drift the boat with the engines off with baits out, dead or alive.

We ask that you DO NOT touch hooks, knives or gaffs.

We will try to position you for pictures with safety always first and that means we might be holding the fish and appear on your photos with you.

We will do our best to put your party on fish, but remember, mother nature has a say and will determine what we may or may not catch.
