Fiesta Cruises of Miami is based on a simple premise: combining Miami nightlife and sightseeing tours, and transporting them to the aquamarine ocean. The result? A nighttime party cruise with disco music, dancing, and views of the skyline, as well as sightseeing cruises that highlight celebrity homes and pristine beaches. The captains also lead chartered fishing trips and Captain Jimmy even brings visitors to a place where they can hand-feed gigantic tarpon fish, which can weigh up to 250 pounds.
Captain Jimmy has fished all his life and wanted to share the wonder of Bayside's native tarpon. The tarpon have come to know Jimmy and wait for him to feed them. As a separate service from his cruises, the captain realized he was in a unique position to provide people with the opportunity to feed a fish that can grow to almost 300 pounds. He designed an area from the dock that would let people get up close and personal, while keeping a safe enough distance—even for young children.
Customers can use custom feeder handles or even hand feed the tarpon. The feeder handles make feeding easy for anyone, even a toddler or young child. Feeders learn interesting facts about the fish known as the Silver King while serving them a bucket of herring.
