There are navigational electronics to help put you on the fish, as well as snorkeling equipment if you want to enjoy the underwater world.

The crew offers tons of different trips, making sure to tailor each adventure to your exact needs. Depending on where you want to go and how much time you want to spend fishing, you can choose between deep sea fishing, Shark fishing, offshore fishing, or inshore and nearshore fishing.

Some of the species you may target include Grouper, Snapper, King Mackerel, Sailfish, Amberjack, and many others. The Southbound Tournament team covers it all, from meat hauls to catch and release. And if fishing is not your thing, you can also contact them for eco tours, dolphin exploring, as well as dinner cruises, and more.

    Head out on the water in the morning on this quick trip for up to 6 people. A quick trip means we run faster, cover more ground, BUT burn more fuel at those speeds so we have to charge a little extra. But hey, you get to spend more time fishing in the small window we have! This will be another trolling and jetty trip. We will venture further into the Gulf than on the 2-hour trip.
