The THERAPY-IV Nominated for WPLG Local 10's Top Ten Contest


Miami Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2014 -- The THERAPY-IV, a Miami Deep Sea Fishing Charter, has been nominated for the "Local 10 Top Ten," an initiative hosted by WPLG/Local 10, the ABC television station serving South Florida.

The contest ranks Miami's most popular local businesses in numerous categories based on the number of votes they receive from participating Miami residents. The THERAPY-IV was one of only a relative handful of businesses to be given the honor.

Voting began on January 1st and will continue for a 10 week period, after which the winners will be announced in March on a prime time television spotlight. Many of the businesses that receive the most votes in their category will be the subject of a special feature; furthermore, winners receive year-round exposure through the Local 10 website.

The THERAPY-IV announced the news on its official blog,, where the charter’s founder and commodore, Captain Stan Saffan, expressed excitement and gratitude for having been nominated.

This news comes shortly after the THERAPY-IV succeeded in ending 2013 as the year’s #1 activity in Miami Beach, according to TripAdvisor, a major travel website. The company had maintained its esteemed position for much the year due to overwhelmingly positive reviews, most of which cited the professionalism and friendliness of its staff, as well as the quality of the charter boats and fishing equipment.

Few attractions on TripAdvisor manage to maintain such a high ranking for this period of time, especially in a market as competitive as Miami Beach’s. This rare achievement subsequently reflects the THERAPY-IV’s dedication to its clients; it formally welcomes novice and experienced anglers alike, and explicitly accommodates its services to meet the needs of its clients.

The prominent fishing charter is headquartered in Big Bill Marina in Haulover Park, from where it has been operating for four decades. Even prior to its nomination in Local 10’s Top Ten, the THERAPY-IV had an established reputation in the Miami Beach Area.
