Fort Lauderdale Fl pontoon boat tourKids, Elderly, and Handicap Accessible

Pontoon boats are much sturdier and roomier than bass and flats boats. Pontoons don’t rock as much, have sides making it safer for young kids, and have much more sitting areas for those looking for a relaxing experience. Because of the excess floor space and set up of a pontoon boat, accommodating those in a wheelchair or any handicap is no problem. Pontoons are higher up and more level with the dock, making boarding much easier as well. Bass and flats boats are much lower and require more balance from a person boarding. Pontoon charter boats are undoubtedly the best option for young kids, the elderly, and handicapped situations.

Benefits of Pontoon Charters

Overall, pontoon fishing charters are the best way to experience incredible Florida fishing in a much more relaxing and comfortable way. This fishing trip is the perfect combination of relaxing and exciting, providing the ultimate Florida outdoor experience.

A pontoon boat is large enough to fit a group but small enough to cruise the calm Fort Lauderdale waters with fishing success.

Fishing Quality From A Pontoon Boat

While pontoon fishing in Fort Lauderdale, you will have the same high probability of success as if you were in a bass or flats boat. In fact, the number of fish caught on pontoon fishing charters is often higher because of the ability to have more rods out at once. The boat is the perfect size and shape to have many people fishing around it. Your captain knows all the best spots, so everyone has a shot at catching fish regardless of which side of the boat you are on.

Best Time

Exploring and fishing for Everglades game fish is excellent all year, but the best time for a fishing trip here and incredible sightseeing is during the dry months of November through April, when the water levels are low. Peacock bass are also there throughout the year but are generally more active during the warmer times.

Captain Bill

Ft Lauderdale Fishing
It was a slow start due to the cold weather, but by the end of the trip we were able to catch double digit Peacock Bass. The was a result of Captain Bill and his tenacious attitude to find the fish and boy did we. Highly recommend.
