A Recap of the First Miami Heat Game of Year!

Captain Stan of The THERAPY-IV, the no.1 Miami Beach Deep Sea Fishing charter in South Florida, has been a dedicated Miami Heat fan his whole life. So needless to say, he was excitedly looking forward to the first game of the year, which ended in a resounding victory for the three-time winner of the NBA Championship.

The Heat opened the season with a 107-95 win over the Washington Wizards, proving that there is plenty of talent and magic left in their post-LeBron James era. As usual, the star team demonstrated incredible finesse and skill, with plenty of amazing highlights.

Chris Bosh had 26 points and 15 rebounds, Norris Cole scored a career-high of 23 points, and Dwayne Wade gained 21 points, 12 of which came decisively towards the end of the game. Even the rookies shined: James Ennis added a three-pointer with abut nine minutes left in the game, while fellow rookie Shabazz Napier helped widen the lead by another two points.

It was a riveting and engaging play, even if the end result was not in question: the Heat were certain to win! Captain Stan eagerly awaits more great plays as the season continues. Come back regularly to get updates and developments.

Learn About Our Amazing Location -- Haulover Park

Haulover Park is not just the home to THERAPY-IV, the most revered Miami Beach Deep Sea Fishing charter; it is also home to many great facilities, businesses and services available year round much like our services are. Here are some of the great services and businesses you can visit at the park.

Because of the park’s wide open spaces and open breezes, Haulover Beach Park is often noted as a great place for people to fly kites. This has led to the success of one of our good neighbors Skyward Kites, a kite shop that has thrived for 20 years at the park. The shop has one of the largest selections of kites, windsocks and wind spinners in the South Florida area, some of which cost as little as $5 and available in a variety of shapes and colors. In addition, they can help you make your own custom kite to your exact wishes.

While the shop has existed at the park for several decades, that doesn't mean they haven't undergone significant changes over the years. In 2009, they upgraded their trailer to a state-of-the-art model powered by solar panels that capture solar energy. Surprisingly, the trailer was built and designed by the owner Dan Ward. Although kites are the main attraction, the shop also sells refreshments and treats like cold drinks and ice cream. Open every day from 10 am to sunset 364 days a year (except Christmas Day), this is a must see attraction of the park.

For those of you who want to work on your fitness, try visiting Oceanfront Fitness. The company offers fitness courses daily along the water by the Bill Bird Marina Entrance that are available for every fitness level. Whether you prefer the high-endurance sport of kickboxing, the tranquil stretches of yoga, the heart-pounding rigor of boot camp or the lively nature of Zumba, you’ll find the perfect class for you.

If you think that your dog needs classes more than you do, try visiting dog training classes provided by Rocco’s Pack Pet Services. Conveniently located at the park, you can help identify what causes your dog to misbehave badly, understand those triggers and also learn how to help manage your dog while he is misbehaving.

While you’re enjoying these great services at Haulover Park, you should also consider taking a Miami Deep Sea Fishing Charter with THERAPY-IV. As the highest-rated fishing charter in Miami according to TripAdvisor, we offer a variety charters that cater to the needs of our customers. To learn more, visit our website or call (305) 945-1578.

THERAPY-IV Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

With the beginning of October upon us, many across the country are taking the time to recognize an important issue. This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time when we remember this horrible diseases that affects thousands of women every year. The iconic pink ribbon has become a sign of hope for millions and a reminder for women to take preventative steps by regularly screening for the disease.

In an effort to help us show support and raise awareness for the issue, THERAPY-IV will be flying a Breast Cancer Awareness flag for the entire month of October. Because we carry out Miami Deep Sea Fishing charters every day, we log an extraordinary amount of miles and are seen by many other boats and people throughout the day. Since so many people see our boat daily, thousands will likely see our pink ribbon flag.

With our Breast Cancer Awareness flag, we stand in solidarity with those who have been afflicted with breast cancer, some of whom are friends with the THERAPY-IV team or have participated on our Miami Beach Deep Sea Fishing charters. It is a disease that affects all women from a multitude of backgrounds, one that we hope to see an end of in our lifetimes. Even if just one person who sees our flag decides to donate to the cause or one woman does a screening for the disease, we would have made a difference.

While our flag is just one small contribution to the fight against Breast Cancer Awareness, together our small contributions can hopefully make a big difference in the fight against the disease. Women fighting breast cancer need as much support as they can and we must recognize those who have lost their battles.
