Summer is the perfect season to spend time together on the water! Take a look at unique ways to do that on your next Disney World vacation.
National Fishing and Boating Week
This national celebration runs June 4 through June 12. It highlights not only the importance of conserving our waterways and practicing safe fishing and boating, but also the fun and relaxing activities that come with it. Disney works with Take Me Fishing to bring unique fishing adventures to Disney World Resort!
Leaving from marinas at select Disney Resort hotels, you can embark on a catch-and-release fishing excursion that combines the tranquility of fishing with the magic of Disney. They customize the outing based on your level of knowledge and comfort.
So, whether you’re a family of adventurers, a group of friends looking to relax, or a solo avid angler, try this one-of-a-kind experience!
Choose from Guided Bass Fishing Excursions, which includes a 21-foot Sun Tracker pontoon boat that can accommodate up to 5 Guests, and a tournament-style NITRO® bass fishing boat for up to 3 Guests.
Both 2-hour and 4-hour excursions are offered, and if available, an extra hour may be added in person at the Marina. Solo anglers may book an afternoon excursion at a reduced rate.
All Walt Disney World Resort fishing excursions include:
- An experienced guide
- Rod and reel
- Artificial and/or live bait (NITRO boats will not offer live bait.)
- Non-alcoholic beverages only (Guests may not bring alcoholic beverages aboard.)
