With its close proximity to the Gulfstream waters off Florida’s East Coast, The Palm Beaches are the undisputed epicenter for word-class angling. Sports fishermen from around the globe are drawn to the bountiful Atlantic waters and the Bahamas nearby. Whether it’s flyfishing for bonefish on the Bahamian flats, deep dropping along the continental shelf for tile fish or offshore trolling for big game tuna or billfish, experienced anglers find the perfect homeport in The Palm Beaches.
World-Class Fishing Destination
The Palm Beaches are a hot spot for some of the most sought-after species and offer a variety of fishing excursions year-round. From kite fishing rigs extended from towering outriggers to electronic deep-drop reels for bottom fishing, every day brings a new adventure for serious anglers. Plentiful local catches include mahi mahi, grouper, tripletail, kingfish, and snapper. For the ultimate thrill, The Palm Beaches are also a part of Sailfish Alley, where record-size sailfish congregate closest to shore. Inshore waters, bridges and local structures attract tarpon, redfish, snook, pompano, and more.
Top-Rated Events and Tournaments
The Palm Beaches are also well-known for their annual fishing tournaments, bringing the sport’s top fishing teams to the area to compete in high-stakes tournaments for impressive rewards. From November through May, numerous annual Sailfish and Billfish tournaments occur along the east coast, including the Silver Sailfish Derby in January. For those looking to target game species like wahoo, kingfish, and mahi mahi, the KDW Classic in June, the Kingfish Mayhem Pro Series, and more provide plentiful competitions.
Additionally, the Palm Beach International Boat Show is a favored yearly event, featuring more than $1.2 billion worth of yachts and accessories. Lining the marinas at Flagler Drive, this event brings hundreds of boats from around the world, including superyachts nearly 300 feet in length.
Intracoastal Waterway Boating Access
The waterways within The Palm Beaches are world-renowned for both their scenic beauty and their connectivity. Two major inlets lead from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway, allowing easy access to any inshore or offshore adventure. Not only is Palm Beach Gardens a destination unto itself, but the area’s prime location puts the city near other world-class locales. Day trips to Fort Lauderdale and The Bahamas are a breeze, just 37 and 55 nautical miles away respectively. The Florida Keys are also a popular weekend destination, with vibrant city life and numerous fishing excursions to explore.
Waterfront Restaurants Abound
After a long day spent out on the water, The Palm Beaches’ reputation for delectable fine dining is sure to please any discerning palate. Reminisce the day’s activities while watching the sunset over the water at Sailfish Marina, River House, and Seasons 52. Or cruise over to Jupiter’s 1000 North, Love Street, or U-Tiki to enjoy tropical libations while planning the next offshore adventure.
