Florida offers excellent saltwater fishing off its shores, and there is the opportunity of having a fun and affordable day of fishing aboard one of the local party boats that are available all along the Florida coast. Party boats are available for fantastic fishing in Florida's eastern coastal communities of Port Canaveral, Fort Myers, Fort Pierce, Jupiter, Miami, Ponce Inlet, and Stuart. These party boats fish in local bays and the Atlantic Ocean's Gulf Stream for a wide variety of fish that may include red snapper, lane snapper, mangrove snapper, grouper, cobia, flounder, sharks, sea bass,
king mackerel, dolphin (mahi-mahi), permit, bluefish, amberjack, and blackfin tuna. Party boats that fish in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico can be accessed from Clearwater, Sarasota, and Destin, and offer anglers excellent snapper and grouper fishing. The Florida Keys also have party boats available on Kew Largo, Key West, and Marathon. The party boats from the Keys bring anglers to fantastic fishing grounds for snapper and grouper, and everything from amberjack to wahoo too. Bait, tackle, and fish cleaning services are typically provided, making a fishing trip aboard a party boat an excellent outing for the entire family.
