5 out of 5 stars

Let’s go fishing on the Blue Waters II located right by the Miami cruise ships. A quick 10 minute ride gets you to the fishing grounds where sailfish, mahi mahi, tunas, sharks, king fish and more are the catch. Kite fishing with live bait, trolling, or dropping are on the menu. Fun loving father and son team make each trip special. Free beverages and dry snacks round out the experience. Available for your group (max. 6 persons) for four, six or eight hour trips.

Captain John Barker is at the helm of a beautiful 45’ Sport Fisherman built in 2009. It’s powered by dual 350HP Cummings diesel engines to get you to the fishing grounds quick! This clean and well-maintained vessel is equipped with outriggers, rocket launcher, fighting chair, and a large live well. It has all the comforts of home with an A/C salon with large flat screen television, stereo, and comfort seating. All the safety features are registered with the United States Coast Guard including PFDs (personal floatation devices), fire extinguishers, and EPIRB (emergency beacon if needed). Your safety is a top priority for the crew of Blue Waters II.

Your group of six will fish the deep waters just off the shore of Miami. Blue Waters II and Captain John offer all types of tackle, such as Ultra-light and Monster – they have everything you need for a great day of reeling in monsters. If you have any questions about what you’ll be catching or how, Captain John is happy to help. There is also a First Mate that is ready to work hard for your fishing success!

On your Miami fishing trip you’ll be able to catch a variety of species. In the deep Atlantic Ocean you’ll find Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Barracuda, Sharks, and more! Miami has several artificial wrecks available that offer fantastic fishing. Captain John knows just where to go to get you on the bite. Species found near the wrecks include Cobia, Grouper, Snapper, and Amberjack. Please let the Captain know what you’re interested in fishing for, and he will work hard to accommodate your trip. Some species are determined by seasonality, so be sure to check with Captain before departure.

A family run charter, Blue Waters II invites families aboard for a great day of fishing the Miami waters. Captain John and son have over 30 years combined experience fishing the waters of SW Florida and Bahamas. The crew of Blue Waters II will make sure you have a great, safe, and successful day of fishing! Anglers of all skill level are invited!

If you happen to have a group larger than six, we are able to accommodate with other charters. Blue Waters II is a full-service, premium fishing charter, ready to fish Miami with your crew! Book today for your deep sea Miami adventure!

    I booked a trip with Bluewater 2 for myself and my family while in Miami. We had a fantastic outing. The whole staff did a great job from planning to finish! A lot of knowledge and history was shared not only about the fishing but the area . The crew was great with my kids! They put us on a bunch of fish too! Thanks for a great trip !
