The Fishing Trip of a Lifetime
Explore the Secrets of Islamorada
Your Adventure Awaits
Captain Mark Cockerham is one of the most accomplished inshore fishing guides in the Florida Keys.
In fact, you would be hard pressed to find a charter captain with more tournament accolades, world records and notable catches anywhere in the world.
He knows these waters as well as anyone. Cockerham enjoys bringing families to the isolated beaches of Cape Sable and East Cape (areas that are unreachable by road) as much as he does catching giant permit. Cockerham can do everything in between.
Islamorada's combination of waterscape and gamefish abundance makes it the sportfishing capital of the world.
