Fishing Tour

Fishing in one of the most bio-diverse estuaries in the Northern Hemisphere is an exciting way to spend two hours while visiting the Cocoa Beach area. Enjoy an exciting fishing tour trip on board The Opa.  Designed to be a fishing vessel, it’s been outfitted with rods, reels, and proper tackle to catch many different kinds of salt water fish found in the Indian River Lagoon.

Our crew will guide you to the best fishing tour spots in the river. Whether you’re a first timer or a seasoned pro, you’re sure to catch fish or have a great time trying. For our beginners, we’ll show you how to cast, bait your hook and even remove your fish from the hook, but not before you get some fish selfies. We’ll make sure that you are able to experiment your skills or figure out a new technique while casting the line, and the experienced professionals will be there to help every step of the way. No fishing license? Don’t you worry. Our license has you and your entire crew covered.

Fishing is constantly about new encounters. You’re getting various kinds of fish and switching up your bars and snare, making each excursion out on the water unique. Our fishing tour trip allows you to investigate new waters with certainty and the crew can direct you along those new fishing domains.

Fishing with our crew, we’ll ensure your junior anglers receive a crash course and are ready to bend their rods and reel in their catch. You’ll be fishing for snook, redfish, sea trout, tarpon, sheepshead, flounder and more.

A splendid way to spend your weekend is to go fishing with your friends and loved ones. It would be a great time to learn and enjoy fishing and learning more about it. So instead of luring over a boring weekend, go on a fishing tour in Cocoa Beach and Port Canaveral with Banana River Boat Tour.

If you’re not a fisherman but the rest of your crew is, sit back, relax, and enjoy the amazing one of a kind sights and sounds of the Indian River Lagoon. Snowy white egret, great blue herons, kingfishers, and osprey will enthrall you with their majestic beauty and ability.

About Banana River Boat Tours

Banana River Boat Tours is owned and operated by Captain “CJ” Enneking and his wife, Jayne. Captain CJ is a true native Floridian. Growing up motor boating, sailing, and water skiing on Lake Santa Fe, outside of Gainesville, he always dreamed of working on the water.

Captain CJ’s love of the water was instilled in him by his parents. That is evident in the name of the boats, The Opa and The Nana. His father was a great fisherman and even greater storyteller. Thus, the fishing boat became The Opa, aboard which you will catch great fish and learn to tell even greater fishing tales. The Nana is a bit smaller and a bit quicker allowing you to cruise the lagoon in style and flash just like his mom.

As you can imagine, both Captain CJ and Jayne enjoy spending any spare moment they have on the water. During the summers or school holidays, you may be lucky enough to have Jayne, a teacher, as your mate on a fishing tour. On their days off, they stick close to home and you will likely find them camping, fishing, kayaking, canal cruising or island hopping with friends. When asked where they go on vacation, they responded, “We live in paradise, we don’t have to go anywhere”. Captain CJ has found his missing piece with Banana River Boat Tours. It would be his privilege to share his love of the water and his little piece of paradise with you.
