Tarpon Fishing Charters Tampa Bay FL

Tampa Bay offers some of the World’s BEST tarpon fishing! Forget the crowds of Boca Grande, Plan a Trip to St. Petersburg and enjoy Great tarpon Fishing and St. Petersburg, Florida’s Beaches and Nightlife!

Tarpon Fishing in Tampa Bay is outstanding during the annual tarpon Migration.  If you’re planning a Tarpon Charter in Boca Grande FL, we seriously want you to consider Tampa / St. Pete beach. Our region is just as productive for Giant Tarpon Fishing as Boca Grande Pass but minus the ridiculous crowds and Tampa Bay has a lot more to offer if your planning a trip!

We have been doing Tarpon Charters in Tampa Bay for many years, we have also fished Boca Grande Pass as well, and our customers know the Tarpon Bite in Tampa Bay is just as good as Boca Grande. Actually, most that have fished both Tampa Bay & Boca Grande will tell you the bite in Tampa Bay is even better with more opportunities to actually Land a Giant Tarpon.

TARPON CHARTER RATES:

(6 People Max per boat) W/ Capt John or Capt Gene
1/2 Day $550 $499** 3/4 Day $750 $699** Full Day $950 $899**
** Special Price
( Price for 2 People, add $50 per person (Children Under 10 Free). 6 Passenger Maximum. Plus Gratuity. Cash Price.  Add 3.75% if paying by Credit Card)

Quick Update: Pre-Book your Tarpon Trip today. The bite last year was HOT from Mid April through early July and we expect more of the same for the Spring/Summer 2017 Season. Don’t Miss Out!

We are very Busy in May, June & July with Tarpon Charters so we encourage you to book your fishing charter early. We can also help you plan your stay if you’re planning on flying in for a shot at one of these Giant, Bucket List Sport Fish. Another great thing about Booking a Tarpon Fishing Charter in Tampa Bay / St. Petersburg, FL is the fact that unlike Boca Grande, our area has great resorts, lots of great restaurants and things for the wife and kids to do if thy don’t like to fish! You won’t find that in Boca Grande!
