Found at Sea Charters is a family/veteran owned fishing and pleasure charter company whose love for the water grew into this new adventure. The company’s primary focus is to create a variety of custom fishing/ pleasure charter experiences.
Phil grew up in Miami, Florida and now lives in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He first started fishing around the age of 3, catching peacock bass with his Dad in the canal in their backyard. Fishing quickly became a favorite hobby for little Phil, and when he was around 7 years old, his Dad bought a boat for them to start fishing offshore for the large pelagic and reef fish that call Florida home. Phil’s first offshore fish was a grouper, and he was hooked since. Fishing became an obsession for Phil.
As Phil got older, his obsession became his career, and he became a mate on local drift boats. He worked his way from working the drift boats to working on sportfish boats. Now, Phil does it all.
Phil specializes in fishing for pelagic fish loves catching all fish, but his favorites to catch are ones that he has to hunt and chase for: wahoo and snook. These two fish are very hard to catch, and so much goes into enticing them to bite, from the moon, the tides, and the currents, but Phil always seems to excel at catching these fish. Phil says he doesn’t get excited for much, but he always gets excited when a snook or wahoo strikes his line.
Peter is a local business owner here in Delray Beach. He has multiple businesses in the Marine Industry, from detailing and servicing boats to selling yachts, he has more than a decade of experience. Growing up on the water has ingrained a love and respect for fishing and the ocean. He is a strong believer in the power of positivity an excellence in all things. He strives to support his employees and their personal and professional growth. His personal philosophy is that life is an adventure when approached with intention and awareness
The dream of being an entrepreneur has always been a passion of Stephen’s. Growing up working in the restaurant business and playing high school football, instilled many aspects of entrepreneurship and work ethic into his DNA. That foundation of hard work and leadership skills led Stephen to joining the United States Marine Corps in 2008. Over the last 12 years, Stephen has faithfully served his country on multiple deployments too numerous locations.
While serving as US Marine he also managed being a father to three girls, a husband to a wonderful wife, and attending American Military University as full time student. While his priorities still rest with serving his country, being a father, a husband, it was time to start a new adventure following his passion to serve others. That next adventure is Found at Sea Charters. With Stephen’s brother Peter taking the lead on Operations for the company, it allows Stephen the flexibility to work from any location at any time, as his duty locations change. Stephen handles content creation, video post-production, marketing, and administration sectors of the company.
Savannah grew up on the water as a way of life rather than out of pleasure. Her family owns clam leases on the Gulf and have been working the water for generations. Savannah has an insane work ethic and very high level of management experience and knowledge. Savannah’s love for the water has never faded, so owning a charter company is part of the dream she is living. Savannah also handles content creation, video post-production, marketing, and administration sectors of the company.
I took my two kids and my nephew (ages 7-12) out fishing with Captain Phil and we had the best time. We are not experienced but all eager to learn and Captain Phil was great showing us how he fishes, he spoke about his other experiences which got all the kids excited, and we reeled in a bunch of fish. We had a great day and look forward to going out with Captain Phil again.
Hands down the best charter in South Florida. Peter and his crew go above and beyond to provide an incredible day on the water. The boat is high quality, the company is fantastic, and of course, the fish are always biting!
Had a great morning with Captain Phil and Found at Sea. Caught 7 fish of all sizes, saw a sailfish up close, great tunes, awesome ☀️ and loads of laughs. Phil’s the man!
Fantastic. Peter and Phil were absolutely phenomenal. Extremely professional and knowledgeable. The reviews don’t lie. Phil took us to his spots and was always making sure we were never without a baited line. We literally had 25-30 minutes where we couldn’t even breath we were catching fish so fast. Also, he made sure he filleted our catch. Truly a memorable experience that Peter and Phil created. Highly recommend Found at Sea Charters 😎
I’d look forward to going out with Captain Phil again.
I can’t say enough good things about Found at Sea charter fishing. The first time I spoke to Pete I knew these were the guys I wanted to fish with. Pete took the time to answer all of my questions and he was just super cool to talk to. Captain Phil was beyond amazing. Captain Phil was patient, knowledgeable, and determined to make our trip memorable. I called several different charters before booking with Found at Sea. To say they appreciate First Responders and Military personnel is an under statement. If you are looking to spend the day on the water and want to thoroughly enjoy your time give them a call. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
This past weekend Found at Sea Charters took me on one of my best fishing trips that I have been on. Me and my family had fish to eat for days and a memory that will last forever. I caught my first sail fish which was absolutely an incredible sight to see. Hope this review will help you and your family for a fishing trip in the future.
We had an awesome time with Found at Sea Charters! The crew was knowledgeable and friendly! It was a great experience to share with our friends and check off our bucket lists! I would recommend this for couples, friends, families, and colleagues! We can not wait to go back out there!!
I cannot say enough good things about my MULTIPLE experiences aboard the Found at Sea Charter. First class in every sense of the term. Timely, thoughtful, fun, informative, the list goes on. Peter and Phil are the best and I will be a customer for life.
The best charter in the west palm and south Florida area!!! Had an amazing day out both Peter and captain Phil were awesome!! Hooked a lot of fish and made some great memories! I would highly recommend them and I plan on doing another trip.
The captain’s know all!!!! They took us to their honey hole and we caught kings for days!. Took my dad and uncle and we had a great time. Already scheduled our next trip when they are in town!!! Keep up good work boys!
Very personable friendly and knowledgeable crew, as a novice fisherman I learned a lot. They really know how to find the fish and make for an enjoyable day on the water. Thank you to the found at sea crew for an awesome day!
The boat was awesome! The crew was amazing. I felt safe. They knew where the fish were, and we caught them. I showed up, everything was ready, we caught fish, and left with a bag full of cleaned fish meat. Totally worth it. I had a blast!
I have visited and fished South Florida for about 10 years. I have used a variety of guides, charter services, drift boats, inshore, offshore, you name it, I’ve done it. Peter and Captain Phil are a class act with Found at Sea Charters!
My last trip with Found at Sea brought back enough fresh fish (wahoo, tuna, mahi) to stuff the freezer full. Its easy to rate a charter when you have an epic day and catch a load of fish…but let me tell you…this outfit has top gear and a captain that knows the water and knows how to give you the offshore day of a lifetime.
I almost don’t want to tell anyone about these guys so I can keep them all to myself! Definitely recommend, 5 stars, check with them before you book anyone else.
