Captain John is located at the exciting Bayside Marketplace and Marina right in the heart of downtown Miami and just 5 minutes away from South Beach (just over MacArthur Causeway). Fish the Waters of Miami and Key Biscayne for some of the world's most prized sport fish! These 4-6 Hour trips are fantastic because there is only a short run to the fishing grounds. The water gets deep two miles offshore as you pass South Beach and Key Biscayne just off Miami.

Bayside Marketplace, our place of departure, is in the heart of renovated downtown Miami and the Mall is host to the Hard Rock Cafe, Hooters, and a myriad of cafes and boutiques. From this dock, it is a short and interesting ride to the ocean past cruise ships at Dodge Island and million-dollar homes that are dotted around the channels and cuts.
Captain John (a second-generation fisherman) and his son John Anthony (third-generation). They both grew up fishing the docks of Miami. With an undeniable love of the ocean, they decided it was time to run a charter boat together one day. They enjoy fishing using all types of techniques.
The fish weren’t really biting but I sent my “wishes” for the trip a head of time and they went out of their way to make it happen. Wanted a trophy for our new home and wouldn’t you believe it they set us up to catch a 96” shark. Yes, ...Read More we had to let it go because you cannot kill them (I would not have liked that anyway) and had a taxidermist ready to make a replica. Made up for not catching anything’s else. Really recommend John and John for a trip anytime.
We had a great experience with Captain John and Deckhand John A aboard the Blue Waters II. We ended up catching 3 Bonito Fish (the edible kind within the tuna family) and one King Mackerel. At the end of the trip John A fileted the fish and we were on ...Read More our way home for delicious dinner. Looking forward to many more trips with Blue Waters II !
