The Friendly fisherman is a very large party boat fishing vessel with a single hull design. It normally runs our 5, 10 and 12 hour fishing trips near shore and offshore.

The Friendly fisherman offers a spacious air conditioned cabin with comfortable cushioned benches, full galley, 13 community live wells, men and woman’s bathrooms, and more!

Great choice for day time fishing trips since it’s our faster large party boat offering more fishing time on 10 and 12 hour day trips compared to the larger, stable, slower Florida fisherman 2.

Boat can accommodate 1-80 people but up to 70 recommended for 5 hour trips, 60 recommended for 10 hour trips, 50 recommended for 12 hour trips or shark trips


Rods, reels, tackle, dead bait, some live bait, and 18% tip for captain and crew to split included in charter pricing

Fish cleaning can be included for a small fee if you so choose
