Tampa Bay is known for its shark fishing! From Blacktips and Bull sharks, to Hammerheads and Lemon sharks, test your strength with our Shark Fishing Charter. Your day will start off easy by fishing for grunts and lady fish that will be used as bait. The real fun begins when you head out to our shark honey-hole in the bay. Hooking onto one of these monsters will be no easy feat - these sharks put up a fight that you will not soon forget! If you are an adrenaline junkie and crave the thrill of the fight, our Shark Fishing Charter is sure to be one of your most memorable days on the water!
The boat you will be on is the nicest boat money can buy! Our Crevalle Bay boat is perfect for shark fishing because of its midsize gunnel, which allows you to steady yourself against the edge during your fight to wrangle one of these monsters, while still being low enough to the water to get the shark in the boat for that once-in-a-lifetime picture! This 26 foot beauty is also equipped with a power pole, trolling motor, yachting electronics, and navigational fish finders. Additionally, the boat’s interior and under water lighting makes it perfect for a night-time expedition.
Your captain will be able to put you on any variety of shark that you desire, but we particularly pride ourselves on being able to catch the best Bull sharks that Tampa Bay has to offer. If you are a fisherman and want to learn new tips and tricks, your captain will be able to share their knowledge so that you, too, can land your next big catch! Believe it or not, some shark species are excellent eating and your captain would be happy to answer any questions you may have about how best to prepare your catch. They will also be more than happy to give you their favorite recipes or recommendations for a local restaurant that will be able to cook your fish for lunch or dinner. Your captain will make sure that you have a trip of a lifetime and will be capturing epic pictures along the way of you landing a true “Monster of the Sea”.
What To Expect:
Upon your arrival to our private marina, your captain will meet you inside or on our covered porch and will offer you a coffee to wake you up and the restroom before you depart. They will have the boat gassed up and stocked with water, fishing gear, and bait. This ensures that your entire 4, 6, or 8 hour charter will be non-stop fun!
You will enjoy an action-packed day with your captain as they put you on the fish and take tons of pictures so you can remember this day for a lifetime! After an amazing fun-filled day on the water, your captain will bring you back to the dock where they will filet all of the keeper fish you caught. They can even recommend a few restaurants that will cook your catch for lunch or dinner!

Tampa Bay - A Shark Haven
One of the reasons that makes Tampa Bay the perfect location for shark fishing is that it serves as a nursery for many species of sharks. The calm, shallow waters of the bay are a great environment for the sharks’ breeding ground, and they continue to come back to these waters throughout their lifetime. This keeps the shark population in Tampa Bay very healthy year round, and allows us to put you on these spectacular monsters!
