Old No. 7 is based out of Sailfish Marina during most of the fall, winter and early spring. Sailfish Marina is conveniently located right near the mouth of the Palm Beach Inlet which provides access to some of the best offshore fishing grounds off Florida. The Marina is a fun environment with a wonderful restaurant, shop and other boats to get you in the fishing mood. The inlet is one of the widest, making a safe journey out to the ocean possible even in challenging conditions.
Even during the seasons above there are times where the boat may be in more far off destinations like the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, Bermuda, the Gulf of Mexico and further up the Eastern seaboard to other states like the Carolinas and Maryland. Typically more often those trips will be in May, June, July and August so contact us to see where the boat is and what plans we have so you may have an opportunity to fly to a more exotic destination to catch fish.

Generally on the further away destinations we require multiple days booked to fish if the boat is available during those times. Florida can produce some amazing fishing yet the experience of travelling often yields larger fish and greater numbers due to less pressure and better structure that holds fish. Please visit our gallery and blog to see some of the things we encounter on these adventures to get an idea of what to expect.
Not only fishing the blue water in traditional methods, we can provide other experiences such as snorkeling and spear fishing, pleasure cruises and exploration of interesting places. Our First Mate Dane Ralph is a professional spear fisherman and can provide instruction and training to people interested in this exciting sport.
