CruiseFishDive – Spear1up

Free cancellation
CruiseFishDive offers various fishing adventures in Southwest Florida. Charters can range from fishing, scuba diving, and combo tours. Their fleet of vessels is equipped with the best quality gear to tackle all types of fishing and diving. Offshore boats are equipped with a marine head while backwater vessels are smaller, open boats to allow room for casting but are typically a short drive to a restroom facility if required. The crew offers a variety of trips from long-range deep sea trips where you’ll be able to harvest different species of fish, to offshore trips that stay within 9 miles from the coast. You will have the opportunity to explore the artificial and natural reefs, wrecks, and bottom structures, targeting species such as Barracuda, Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, Permit, Tarpon, Sheepshead, Snook, Snapper, and Shark. Depending on your skill level, you may cast lures or fish with a variety of baits. You’ll be provided with the best Penn and Shimano reels, as well as custom Shakespeare and Star Rods. CruiseFishDive practices catch and release on all intercoastal and inshore trips of 30 miles due to the decline in reef fish and other species due to red tide toxin. It is also been listed as a warning on NOAA, FWC, and other agencies’ websites not to eat fish inside red tide areas due to toxins in the fish that can make people sick. The exception would be select migratory species that can be caught while fishing offshore but this is at your own risk. The crew asks that if you would like to keep a few fish for a fresh meal, to only take enough for a meal and keep the local fishery healthy for everyone to enjoy the best of Florida. If you are looking to catch the fish of a lifetime, this is where the CruiseFishDive crew excels. It knows how to put its guests on big fish! No matter your experience level, it will do what it takes to teach you how to land that fish of a lifetime!
