Interested in doing some fishing from a kayak but don't know exactly how to get started or where to go on the Indian River Lagoon?
Our guide, Andrew (Huppert) who has been fishing the flats of the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon since he was a child, has extensive knowlege of the area and of the catch. Of course he cannot control mother nature but Andrew, with his experience and knowlege will surely up the odds of hooking that perfect fish. Standard catch include Speckled Sea Trout, Redfish, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Tarpon, and an occasional Snook. Some depending on the season.
We can provide all the gear you need or feel free to bring your favorites. Our desire is to be available for those of you who just need to get away and experience a great time fishing on the lagoon with someone who can significantly increase the odds in the fish catching realm.
Half day trips run for four to five hours on the water and a full day runs six to seven hours. Obviously this is determined by the environmental conditions and cooperation of the fish. At any rate, trips are available all year long, most days of the week. You pick the dates and we'll do the rest. Give us a call in the office to book your trip (321) 268-2655.

A Day Away will gladly provide all equipment for your trip (spinning reel & light tackle). Please feel free to bring your own gear if you prefer. You may also bring your own kayak at a reduced price as posted.
Dress for the sun and be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, water, snacks, camera and any other personal items you like. In the cooler months we recommend layered clothing so you can cool off or warm up as the weather changes. Plan to get a little wet and shoes are recommended in case you want to wade. A change of clothing for after the trip is nice in case you take an unexpected swim.
A Day Away Inc. reserves the right to deny service to any patron deemed to be an impaired paddler for whatever reason. Your safety and the safety of the group are our highest priority.
Please understand that when a reservation is made with A Day Away, that it is a commitment for us to hold seats for you. We can (and often do) turn away others from that particular date (or tour). With this in mind we must hold to the following policies:

4. Same day cancellations or "no shows" are charged 100% of total tour price.
5. Tours will wait for parties “running late” for 15 minutes beyond the published tour time. After that, the tour will launch as scheduled and no refund will be issued.

We attempt in all cases to determine prior to your tour launch if weather will impede your trip. However, there are rare occasions where we have launched and weather patterns change suddenly at which time we must return to shore. In this case the following policies apply and each patron is responsible to contact the office to make arrangements.
A Tour is considered COMPLETED if more than 45 minutes or half of the tour time was spent on the water before having to return back to shore due to weather.If your tour has spent less than 45 minutes or half of the tour time on the water then patrons can:

In such cases, we cannot be responsible for paying any expenses you may have incurred other than to refund monies due to you for tour price.
There are no exceptions to these cancellation policies. (321) 268-2655
