Family Fishing Adventures®


After spending time at Orlando area theme parks or attractions, take a day off to relax and enjoy some time with your family or friends fishing aboard the “Eagle Ray” on Legendary Lake Tohopekaliga in Kissimmee, Florida. Located at the Kissimmee Lakefront Park at Big Toho Marina in Historic Downtown Kissimmee, Florida just minutes from Orlando and Disney© area attractions and theme parks. Rods, reels and tackle is provided (or bring your own). Fishing fun and adventure for the family, business group, single parent or those who wish to go fishing but don’t have the equipment and/or knowledge of how to catch fish in Florida. Those more experienced at fishing are welcome and encouraged aboard the Eagle Ray. Catch largemouth bass, crappie, specks, bluegill, shellcrackers, catfish, pickerel, and other freshwater fish found in the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes.

Florida freshwater fishing licenses are required for those 16 years or older. The required fishing license can be purchased at the Big Toho Marina bait shop at our location. Wild shiners are suggested bait for largemouth bass and are also available at the marina. We have one of the only boats around Central Florida that can take up to 6 persons fishing for bass or crappie. Rather than rent a boat or hire two fishing guides to take your group, go on the Eagle Ray and share the fun together.

Reservations are suggested, however fishing trips may be available anytime. Please call first before coming to the dock and you will avoid the inconvenience of waiting. Half-day fishing trips run approximately 4-5 hours. Full-day fishing trips are available, however, I suggest you consider booking two half-day trips to spread your best fishing times over two separate days. Refreshments are available on the boat and personal coolers are welcome. Our boat is wheelchair accessible, and is a perfect fishing platform for those who have restricted mobility. Have fun with your family or small group and join us for an exciting day of adventure fishing with Capt. Ray.
