Private Sportfishing Charters for Groups of 7 or More Persons

Sportfishing Charters

Nice dolphin caught on a fishing charter aboard the Mary B III

Often we would get a group of 7 or more people in a group that wanted to do a private sportfishing charter. Unfortunately, most charter boats in Fort Lauderdale are only licensed to take a maximum of 6 people.  The Mary B III has been specially set up to licensed to run sportfishing charters for groups 7 or more persons.  The Mary B III is set up for all styles of sportfishing.

  • Offshore and Reef Trolling
  • Live Baiting/Kite Fishing
  • Shipwreck Fishing/Deep Dropping
  • Shark Fishing Day or Night Charters

The Mary B III is set up with fishing 360 degrees around the boat.  She has a large comfortable cabin with dinette tables and bench seating.  Aboard there are men’s and women’s separate, clean restrooms.  The large fishing cockpit in the back of the boat can fish a big group of people.  This boat is great to fish aboard, there is just so much room.

This is a great trip for corporate team building events, bachelor parties, large family fishing trips, birthday parties, and we even do non-fishing venues such as sunset cruises, intracoastal private group tours, and restaurant/hotel pickups.

The following are prices for chartering the Mary B III for a private sportfishing charter:

4 Hour Charter $1,500
6 Hour Charter $2,100
8 Hour Charter $2,750

15 people is the general number where rather than sportfishing, we will switch to drift fishing. It’s difficult to sportfish with more than 15 people but a drift fishing charter would be perfect with a group more than 15.  A good cap for a drift fishing trip aboard the Mary B III is 30 persons, but we can fish as many as 45 on a tight ship.  This is a fun fishing trip for birthday parties, bachelor parties, company get-togethers, team building activities, Fort Lauderdale spring break events, and large family vacations.
