Guided catch-and-release excursions allow you to experience bass fishing at its finest—all year round! This relaxing experience provides a break to guests who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the Disney Parks.

Guests may choose from Guided Bass Fishing Excursions, which includes a 21-foot Tracker pontoon boat that can accommodate up to 5 Guests, and Bass Nitro Fishing, which features a tournament-style Nitro Bass boat for one or 2 people.

Both 2-hour and 4-hour excursions are offered daily, and if available, an extra hour may be added in person at the Marina.  A single fisherman may book an afternoon excursion at a reduced rate.

Excursions are offered in the morning at 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. and in the afternoon at 1:30 p.m.
