Leaving from Boca Raton or Hillsboro Inlets, come fish the rich waters from Fort Lauderdale to West Palm Beach, Florida.   If you want to catch your very first Sailfish, Dolphin, King Mackerel, Wahoo, or run offshore to catch a Swordfish, the crew of the Crescendo can make your dreams come true!  If you want to have a truly great time, give us a call.

Crescendo Fishing Charter is a private fishing charter and not a put together charter, in which people draw straws on who goes first, (if there are enough fish to catch).  We are NOT AN AGENCY. When you contact us, you will be in direct contact with Capt. Charles and not a commission broker, working for a commission to find you a charter.

Captain Charles Greenberg has been fishing the waters in Southeast Florida and the Bahamas since moving here in 1989. Fishing whenever the weather permits helps keep the crew of the Crescendo up-to-date on what’s hot and where the fish are. Fish the gulf stream, or just take a lazy day cruise down the intra-coastal with the family; Our desire is to make your day a very special one. Beginners and experts are all gladly welcome.

The conventional TACKLE is all new top of the line Finor Marquesas'®, Our tackle ranges 12 pound to 50 pound gear, depending on what we are targeting on your charter. Shimano Spinning reels are loaded with 20 pound monofilament line. 

Trolling live or dead bait, as well as Kite Fishing for sailfish are our methods depending on what is biting.

What an experience!!  Captain Charles and the Crescendo provided me with the most exciting fishing journey to date, by far. Charles managed to strike the perfect balance of passion, patience and instruction, combined with top of the line equipment and unparalleled local knowledge. It was my most enjoyable 4 hours i have spent on the water to date and thanks to Charles, I now have a different expectation of what a charter trip is supposed to entail. "What an experience!!!

When we weren't hauling in fish--which was rare--I was thoroughly entertained by Charles'old-school Brooklyn tales, being that we share the same roots.  Within the first 10 minutes of meeting Charles on the dock, I knew I was in for a treat, and the Captain certainly DID NOT disappoint.


Thanks Cap, see you soon--this time I'm bringing the boys! Get the gaffe!"

This is a video from one of our charters showing some sailfish action.  

The fishing has been great lately and will get better as the water cools down!

Captain Charles and the Crescendo were featured in an episode of Into the Blue on cable network, where a Sailfish that was caught and tagged near Boca Raton Florida was recaptured three years later.

During taping of the show Into the Blue, they caught the same fish in Islamorada Florida, three years later!   

Ask the captain to continue this great story about what happened three years later.  The story continues...... Stay tuned!
