Fishing Charters

Inshore Fishing

Tampa Bay is Florida's largest open-water estuary with over 400 square miles of water encompassing wrecks, artificial reefs, bridges, grass flats, various bottom terrain, and miles of mangroves in addition to its freshwater inlets. 

Inshore we target redfish, trout, snook, and snapper but you never know what can show up to the party! We utilize live bait, cut bait, and artificial to get the most action. In the Bay you have to be ready for anything. 

Our 23ft. bay boat is powered by a 250HP Yamaha and has all the toys to put us on fish and keep us safe and comfortable.

4 Hour Inshore or Gulf near-shore is $300

(2 persons. Additional person is $50 up to 4 max.)

6 Hour Inshore or Gulf near-shore is $450

Gulf of Mexico near-shore (within 9 miles) Charters available for kingfish, grouper, and snapper, weather and season dependent.

Freediving charters

 We offer freediving charters for divers with a minimum of LEVEL ONE certifications. Divers must adhere to our safety requirements i.e. "one up one down" buddy teams, all divers are required to tow a float-line, proper breathing, gun etiquette, and all safety rules.

SAFETY is a requirement.

We realize there are different schools and methodology related to freediving and we will try to accommodate within reason.

Our dive sites are generally 20ft-30ft range.
