This is a guest post from Stacey (last name kept private) who wanted to share her experience with boat hire and more specifically, fishing charter boats.
Boat Hire and Fishing in Florida
I love going on vacation to Florida. I have been vacationing to Florida at least once each year since I was a little kid. My parents, siblings and I would pile into our family station wagon and make the long drive from Wisconsin to Florida every summer. Stopping at camping grounds we enjoyed being close to the ocean and watching the hire boats and private charter vessels cruising past. I'll never forget seeing my first superyacht, wow that was something to behold.
One day, dad would say.
One day indeed.
I wanted to be on one of those charter boats more than anything else, and I wasn't phased as to whether I was fishing or sailing or just cruising. I just loved the idea of being on the water.
As an adult, I have continued to vacation to Florida with my own family and our friends. We go to a condo every spring for two weeks and we love it. I never tire of Florida vacations because they are absolutely beautiful. I love walking with my daughters along the water and playing football with my sons along the beach. My absolute favorite thing to do each year on vacation, however, is spend a day fishing on a charter boat.
Now I am all Grown Up
My childhood dream has been coming true each year for the past twenty years. In fact, I think I have been fishing on a deep sea charter boat nearly thirty times since I first dreamed about doing it. I have been on the charter boat with my father, my father-in-law, my wife, our children and several of my closest friends at different times in the past twenty years. I just cannot get enough of fishing on the charter boat in what seems like the middle of a huge ocean.
If you're looking to vacation to Florida any time soon, then I suggest you make your way to the Gulf of Mexico and get yourself on a charter boat fishing excursion as soon as possible. You'll absolutely love the feeling of spending a day at sea and of catching the biggest fish you can possibly catch. A charter boat fishing experience is truly one of the best parts of a Florida vacation, so don't go without taking at least a day for this.
Do a little research and see what kinds of fishing charter boats are available in the area you will be visiting. Look for great deals by taking a large group with you or by going on an off day. Deep sea fishing is a great hobby and unless you have access to your own deep sea fishing boat then boat hire is your only option. Luckily it is also the best option, so make plans to hire a boat and experience deep sea charter fishing for the first time.
