Whether you’re just discovering your sea legs or were born with a fishing rod in your hand, Fair N’ Square Fishing Charters in Port Canaveral are ready to take you on the adventure of a lifetime. No angling dream is too big for them!

Welcoming everyone from children and families to more experienced anglers, Captains Pat and Ken have fished all the way from the shores of New Jersey to the beautiful Florida Keys. They have extensive knowledge of these waters, as well as the best techniques to reel in a wide variety of inshore and offshore species. They love nothing more than sharing their skills with all types of anglers.

Whether you’re staying nearshore to reel in mighty Hammerhead or Blacktip Sharks, or heading offshore to battle with Sailfish or Mahi Mahi, you’ll start your adventure aboard a 28’ commercial Delta boat. She can comfortably accommodate up to six anglers, and you’ll all be able to cast off at the same time. She also has a fully enclosed toilet on board for your privacy and convenience. If you’re looking to cruise the waters in comfort and style, what more could you ask for?

Captains Pat and Ken pride themselves on offering a wide variety of trips for anglers of all ages and abilities. If you’re looking for a family adventure, kids over the age of six are welcome aboard Fair N’ Square. The three hour trip is perfect for budding anglers! Up for more of a challenge? Why not go for one of the half day offshore trips, and see if you can reel in a big, bad game fish — make sure you get a photo for bragging rights!

All necessary equipment is included in your trip. You’ll be provided with rods, reels, bait, drinks, life jackets, and the all-important fishing license. Once you’ve reeled in your big catch, your Captains will be more than happy to clean and fillet it for you. All that’s left is to book a trip with Fair N’ Square Charters, and let them make your dreams come true!
