In River or Ocean
If your dad has a love for the outdoors, or is an avid fishing enthusiast, there are few cities you could have picked that are better than Jacksonville! The In River or Ocean Fishing Tournament is a proud tradition of the Jacksonville community, where Dad and the family can get out on the water and enjoy casting for the biggest catch either on St. Johns River or out on the Atlantic! All proceeds also go back to the community via the Clay Roberts Memorial Scholarship, meaning this is a great way to help support the community as it is enjoying the North Florida waters.

Here, the ample amount of shopping and dining means you can spoil Dad as well as the whole family, enjoying the beach, touring the city and indulging in Northeast Florida’s nature. We recommend sunset picnics on the beach or with window side seating at one of the many restaurants here in Jacksonville Beach to treat Dad and for a memorable view to make this Father’s Day stand out.
