About Your Guide

Profile photo of Captain Experiences guide John

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.

Blue Water II Fishing Charters Trips

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, including Sailfish, Mahi Nahi, Marlin, Tuna, and other species. The water gets deep only two miles offshore as you pass South Beach and Key Biscayne, so on this 8-hour adventure, you will have the opportunity to explore a lot of deepwater in search of some incredible sport fish as well as some delicious eating fish! This trip offers all types of tackle, from ultra-light to monster tackle. Everything is supplied for your trip except catering (beverages and/or food). Catering is easily arranged when you place your reservation. The boat features a fighting chair, rocket launcher, outriggers, and a large bait well. For your comfort in the air-conditioned saloon, there is a 32" flat-screen TV, stereo, comfortable seating with head and galley, and stateroom down. Your guide, Captain John, has been fishing the local and Bahamian waters for over thirty years, and he will ensure you have a pleasant trip. 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. Read More

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 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. This means that you can still expect to chase down Sailfish, Kingfish, Blackfin Tuna, and other species on a short trip. The boat offers all types of tackle, from ultra-light to monster tackle. Everything is supplied for your trip except catering (beverages and/or food). Catering is easily arranged when you place your reservation.

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, 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 our way home for delicious dinner. Looking forward to many more trips with Blue Waters II !
