Shark Bait Fishing's name is a little deceiving. Sure, you might catch a baby shark out on the company's 26-foot catamaran, but you'll also have a great shot at reeling in everything from puffers to red fish to the more elusive electric pink eel. Shark Bait provides the reels, rods, and hook licenses, and out on the waves of the Intracoastal Waterway, the captain will help you bait hooks and clean your fish. That part's especially helpful if you plan on bringing the whole family, which the company happily encourages.

Sister ships Orlando Princess and Canaveral Star II disembark from Cape Canaveral for daily fishing trips. The 80- and 85-foot vessels set sail with an experienced crewmember and soon-to-be seafarers equipped with fishing licenses, rods, reels, tackle, and bait. Full- and half-day excursions let fisherpeople hunt for mangrove snapper, grouper, and sea bass, and nighttime shark-fishing trips give them the opportunity to seek out bigger game. After catching a respectable haul, patrons can relax on the sun deck or in air-conditioned cabins and indulge in included hot meals. They'll also get unlimited beer or soda that tastes better than seawater, which is mostly made up of mermaid spit.

One of the toughest parts of fishing is finding your prey beneath the water's surface. To remedy this age-old difficulty, Ofishal Business Charters equips both its vessels with electronic fish-finding systems, which digitally scan the water for fish and vacationing Loch Ness monsters. Steered by one of the company's two captains, both vessels can ferry passengers on searches for mahi-mahi and snapper in offshore waters, or the yellowfin tuna and blue marlin that make their seaweed-roofed houses on the other side of the Gulf Stream. Boats can also chart courses to the Bahamas on specialty trips, while passengers gaze out at scenic views dotted with dolphins, sea turtles and other wildlife.

For their chartered journeys, guests can choose from two vessels. Aboard the 40-foot Black Watch boat, passengers can watch an LCD TV in the air-conditioned salon or snack on eats from the full galley. Alternatively, passengers can survey their surroundings atop the marlin tower of the more compact 32-foot Stuart Angler, whose Sony Marine stereo lets voyagers blast their own soundtracks.

Aboard Obsession Charters's party boat, experienced captains lead groups into fish-laden waters, where lines are cast out into the ocean in search of species such as grouper, snapper, and sharks. The 65-foot watercraft launches out of Port Canaveral on full-day and half-day trips across the giant bathtub disguised as the Atlantic Ocean. As fishers wield rented rods or their own equipment, staff situated in an air-conditioned galley serves up hot food and cold beer. After trips, Obsession Charters's cleaning tables let customers prep their catches. In addition to voyages aboard their signature vessel, the staff also books private charters by negotiating with the monocled whales who own Port Canaveral’s most popular fishing boats. Most aquatic exhibitions include bait, and Obsession Charters's captains also allow customers to catch their own offshore.

Manned by a Coast Guard-certified crew, a 65-foot speedboat safely whisks passengers along the beaches of Cape Canaveral during 90-minute dolphin-watching tours. The captain pulls off wave-skirting maneuvers, pausing to point out the playful sea mammals, who enjoy swimming, jumping, and high-fiving in the wake of the boat. Flying fish may whiz by the stern, and sea turtles have been known to lazily approach the hull of the docked watercraft. The captain also discusses Port Canaveral's history as passengers snap photos of military ships and submarines in port.

Aboard a 35-foot vessel, DolFun Tours' US Coast Guard master captain guides guests on treks along the Indian River. After passengers select their spots from the boat's indoor and outdoor seating areas, expeditions traverse the river's diverse estuary, where more than 4,400 species of birds and fish dwell. As the ship drifts by, visitors can catch sight of manatees resting in their natural habitats and dolphins rehearsing lines before auditioning for the next Flipper remake. Along with daytime jaunts, DolFun Tours hosts sunset tours on select weekend evenings.
