If you're on the hunt for top-notch Shark fishing on Florida's Gulf Coast, look no further! On this charter fishing trip, Captain Christopher will take you on the water of Tampa Bay to catch a variety of Shark species, including Bonnethead, Blacktip, Nurse, Atlantic Sharpnose, Bull, Hammerhead, and more!

Sharks are famous for their stamina and toughness, and it can take twenty minutes or more to haul in a big one. Captain Christopher will be by your side, offering helpful advice and tips for fighting one of these toothy fish onto the boat.

    We had so much fun with captain joe on our deep sea fishing trip! We have been on a few different deep sea fishing trips but this was by far the best experience we have had! They took us to a couple different spots that were all very successful and we had a blast catching a 200 lb Goliath grouper. Would definitely go with them again!

    We had a wonderful day fishing with Chris. He is incredibly knowledgeable and his passion for fishing really shows. We had three younger kids with and he definitely knows how to make it a great experience for even the novice fishermen. We would definitely take another trip with captain Chris!

    We had a great time on our trip! Kenny was very happy to explain the area to us and very good at getting us in the zone.

    We had a great day fishing offshore with Joseph (Joey) and his first mate Felix. It was a dad and lads trip for me and my two boys Joel 13 and Blake 11. Joel very keen to go, Blake not sure what to expect. They both had the time of their lives. We had a truly memorable day that will last a lifetime. From minute of booking and confirmation the service was 5 stars. The boat was immaculate and comfortable. Joey ensured our welfare was cared for with ice cold waters on board and sun lotion. We came away with catching plenty of fish in good sizes and also have a story of the big one that got away. We will 100% book again and recommend Joseph as your captain. What a great day fishing Wayne, England, Uk

    Capt. Steve did an awesome job keeping our crew of six old salts on fish while battling the wind and unseasonably cold weather. We landed fish and were happy with our day out. Capt. Steve was professional and personable.
