A full-time Port Canaveral fishing charter captain.
Capt. Alex Sorice is one of only a handful of full-time Port Canaveral fishing charter captains. When he’s not running fishing charters, he often fishes commercially providing fish for the retail fish market. It’s his many years of experience in both the commercial and charter fish industry that has made Capt. Alex an expert in fishing the near shore and offshore waters from Daytona Beach and Titusville, to Melbourne and Sebastian. With a two boat fleet, Capt. Alex often works in coordination with Capt. Kyle Larson, who is himself an experienced near shore and offshore guide.
