If you want lots of fun, adventure, and good memories, Suncoast Fishing Adventures (SFA) is the best choice you can make. From inshore trips to offshore adventures, these guys have the skills, the equipment, and the positive attitude to make your day on the water with them special.

You will be spending the day aboard a 28’ Contender center console. Built in 2012, this modern vessel is top of the line and tailored to the waters of the Gulf Coast. She’s nimble enough to explore the shallows on the hunt for Redfish and Trout and stable enough to head all the way out to the Gulf Stream on the hunt for big fish.

It’s more than the boat that makes SFA special, though. Captain Sam Ramey has been fishing all of his life. For him, the inshore and offshore waters of Florida’s Gulf Coast are among the world’s best. Let him show you why, on an exciting charter that’s individualized to meet – and exceed – your desires.

Depending on the time of year and type of fishing you can catch Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, Amberjack, Sharks, Mackerel, Tripletail, Snook, Trout, Redfish, Flounder and so much more! All trips come with quality Penn rods and reels, as well as a range of lures and live bait, which Capt. Sam prepares ahead of the trip to save you time on the water.

If you’re looking for an authentic Florida fishing experience with a local guide who truly loves these waters, you’ve come to the right place. So grab your sunglasses, sunscreen, food, and drinks, and jump aboard for a day that you’ll look back on and smile for years to come.
