Amelia Island Charters offers two different types of inshore fishing experiences. We have a four hour trip for the experienced angler and a three hour trip for a family with beginner anglers. Amelia Island also offers two hour private wildlife boat tours and a three hour customer designed tour. All of the tours are inshore and in the waters surrounding Amelia Island and Cumberland Island.
Excellent Fishing Trip
Captain Scott knows his stuff, our inshore fishing trip was a blast! We spent time on the inlet marshes catching numerous fish, then switched to the deep channel close to shore and had the fight of our life trying to bring in a 200lb plus whopper. Great fun, can't wait to do it again.
AUTHENTIC AND INSPIRING FROM START TO FINISH
My favorite part of the trip was the fact that Captain Scott was very informative throughout, right down to notifying us when the best sunset shots would occur, plus his taking a picture of our family with the sunset in the background (pic not included here). Our close-up view of Cumberland Island (along with a description of its history of development, or LACK THEREOF, from the first settlers to the present day) was not only beautiful to see first-hand but also to appreciate for educational edification. Also, seeing the King's Bay Naval Base in the distance and knowing that Trident Nuclear Subs passed in and out to sea through the exact same waters we were cruising through was really neat. Our entire family was thrilled and inspired by BOTH the boat trip itself and Captain Scott's friendly, communicative demeanor in all respects!
Would do again.
Captain Scott was the best. We had a mixture of people fish a lot and people who have only fished a couple of times and he was really great about teaching everyone something new. The boat had a lot of room to move around and we had many lines out at once. I would definitely recommend this charter.
Wonderful Sunset Cruise!
My daughter and friends celebrated her 18th birthday on a sunset cruise and had a wonderful time! Captain Scott was awesome, and the sunset was beautiful. Highly recommend!
Beautiful day around the island!
Yesterday several of us, spent an afternoon and sunset tour with the Captain, to photograph the day and to discover a little more about where we live. What an enjoyable and memorable afternoon!
Capt Scotts 20 years of piloting passengers to pleasant experiences, really comes through with his humorous and knowledgeable stories that he shares about our local area history, about our particular wildlife and birds, as well as his fishing intuition. Even us old locals each enjoyed learning unknown tidbits and things we didn't know that we didn't know.
The pontoon boat is spotless and comfortable. We will be doing this again! This boat ain't just fer tourists, I would suggest that anybody and everybody could benefit from a few hours with Captain Scott.
Thank you Captain!
