Downtown Tampa Charters is one of the most conveniently-located boats you’ll find. Just a stone’s throw away from the center of Tampa, you’ll be exploring the skinny waters of the bays, bayous, and rivers around Florida’s western shoreline. Captain Max Rowe grew up on these waters and has 10 years experience as a licensed captain, so he knows these waterways like the back of his hand.
This spacious 23’ center console can take up to 6 guests, and is powered by a 150 HP Suzuki engine. Once you’re close to your target fish, the wireless trolling motor will kick in, allowing you to cruise along the water without disturbing the sensitive fish beneath. You’ll catch them off-guard, giving you a much better chance to hook one!
Popular fish that Capt. Max helps you target include Cobia, Redfish, Blacktip Shark, Snook, and the “Silver King” – Tarpon. With top of the range Penn and Shimano gear to work with, as well as ready-prepared live bait, you have a great chance of catching yourself some dinner. Capt. Max or his first mate will happily clean and fillet the fish on the boat for you, while you sit back and enjoy your day.
With shorter and extended trips, Downtown Tampa Charters has something for everyone! Bring your own beer and fish with your pals, or come with the kids and teach them the art of fishing along these calm waters. All within touching distance of the city. It couldn’t be simpler: if you’re in Tampa, there’s a trip for you.
