About Canaveral Charter Captains' Association

Canaveral Charter Captains' Association (CCCA) was founded in 1998 as a 501c(4) non-profit organization with the sole purpose of organizing local charter captains and fishing guides to enhance the fishing opportunities of anglers in the Central Florida area. From the offshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean to the pristine flats of the Indian River Lagoon, their member captains have the local knowledge to provide you with the finest fishing experience available on Florida's Space Coast.

Boat Wildside

Relax in style aboard "WILDSIDE", a nature tour boat operating out of downtown Cocoa Beach. "WILDSIDE" is a new vessel designed and outfitted for your comfort and safety, designed for the purpose of touring the rivers and offshore waters of the space coast. "WILDSIDE" is sun covered for your protection with a restroom on board, completely Coast Guard inspected and has the most modern quiet pollution free motor, "WILDSIDE" provides a close up experience with manatees, dolphins, wild birds and the occasional alligator. All this while enjoying the beautiful Waterways of the Banana River's thousand islands.

Boat FineLine

Climb aboard The FINELINE for a light tackle adventure of a lifetime.

Captain Jim Ross is a full time fishing guide who is on the water almost 300 days a year. This amount of experience and time on the water is exactly why customers book Captain Jim time and time again. He's knows where the fish are, and can consistently put his clients on "the bite".

Whether you're an experienced fisherman or first timer, you can expect in-depth, individual fishing instruction from Captain Jim for an angling adventure you'll never forget. Choose either a back country/flats charter for speckled trout, snook, black drum, and giant redfish in the world famous Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River, or search the near shore waters of the Atlantic Ocean for tarpon, cobia, crevalle jack, barracuda, shark, and king mackerel. The choice is yours, but be prepared for the adventure of a lifetime.
