Palm Beach County is one of the fishing capitals of the world and for good reason. The Gulf Stream, a warm and swift Atlantic Ocean current that originates in the Gulf of Mexico, is closest to land near Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlet, providing abundant amounts of fish about a ¼ mile to 3 miles offshore.

If you don’t have a boat of your own, we have compiled this list of friendly local fishing charters for your convenience.

Charter services and accommodations vary, so hopefully, this guide helps narrow down your choice. Most charter trips include everything you need to fish except for optional live bait, food, drinks, and gratuities. A few charters even include live bait and bottled water!

Thanks to the Floridian Aquifer, the state of Florida has literally hundreds of freshwater springs, 33 of which are first-magnitude. First-magnitude means these springs discharge massive amounts of water which, for us, means they're large enough to swim in. These springs are crystal clear with a nice refreshing temperature of 72-74 year-round. 

Most of Florida's larger springs are north of I4 which runs diagonally from Tampa to Daytona Beach. This is because the Floridan Aquifer is closer to the surface in that area, and runs deeper the more south you go. South Florida residents can easily take a day trip to any of the state's best springs, which are most central. 

Here are some of the coolest and closest springs for SoFlo residents:
