The History of THERAPY-IV’s Home Haulover Park and Marina

The THERAPY-IV is based in Halouver Marina, just 2 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and 6 minutes from the Gulf Stream. Our home gives us a prime spot for Miami Deep Sea Fishing, inshore and offshore, and is located just south of Sunny Isles and north of Bal Harbour on Collins Avenue. The THEAPY-IV has operated in the area for decades, and has frequently been involved with or promoted several local events over the years, particularly those that occur in its headquarters near Big Bill Marina, located in Haulover Park. Our reputable deep sea fishing charter has been ranked as the #1 activity in Miami Beach by TripAdvisor, a travel website, and is well-regarded by its clients, based on testimonials.

Halouver Park is a 99-acre urban park in Miami, located on a shoal between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. It features a marina, six tennis courts, a nine-hole 27-par golf course, and several picnic recreation areas on the southern end. In late 1948, Halouver Park became open to the public, about 8 years after the Dade County Commission procured the property and began construction on beach facilities. In 1991, a portion of the northern beach  was designated by South Florida Free Beaches, a local naturist organization, and remains a clothing-optional beach to this day.

We at The THERAPY-IV boast over 40 years of experience fishing the South Florida waters. We set sail 7 days a week, twice daily between 8 am and 5 pm. All-day charters are also available for private, corporate, or group fishing. Contact me, Captain Stan, for further information at 305-945-1578 or via http://therapy4.com.
