Enjoy Deep Sea Fishing With Ambush Fishing

When you arrange a charter with Ambush Fishing your license requirements are covered by the cost of your charter. Florida has a unique relationship with for-hire vessels. As long as the vessel has a valid charter boat license or charter captain license issued by the U.S. Coast Guard, paying customers do not need their own licenses.

This makes is easy for visitors (and even Florida residents) to get an introduction to deep sea fishing! And what an experience it will be! Florida has some of the best deep sea fishing in the world with an incredible variety of species from big game fish to culinary treats to sharks. Our charters regularly fish for:

  • Amberjack

  • Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi)
  • Grouper

The cost of your charter includes private use of our 36′ boat (up to 6 people), all rods, reels, bait, tackle, ice, and fish cleaning. Captain John and Captain Zak have logged thousands of hours fishing the Florida coast. During that time they’ve learned all the best spots to fish, honing their skills as deep sea fishermen and guides. We work with anglers with all levels of experience from those who have never fished before to those who make it a point to get out regularly. Whatever support you need to have a great day fishing, we provide.
