Port Canaveral & Cocoa Beach Fishing Charter Details & Information

At Fin Factor Charters, we know where the fish are and how to put you on them.

Join us on a Port Canaveral & Cocoa Beach inshore or near-shore trip in our fast, comfortable 25’ Sportsman Bay Boat.

We fish the Indian River for inshore and run the 32 foot Cape Horn into the offshore areas of Florida’s famous Space Coast. Our fishing charters are an easy drive from Orlando, Kissimmee, Melbourne, Cocoa, Daytona Beach and all of Central Florida. If you want a reliable fishing charter with a knowledgeable guide and the best equipment available, call Capt. Joe Smith for some serious fun.

We’d love to have you aboard and help you catch some fish!
