Xtreme Off The Beach Charters – Cape San Blas

Cape San Blas is known as a vacationer’s paradise, thanks to its beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters. It’s also the perfect location to tick a truly unique type of angling off your bucket list – join Xtreme Off The Beach Charters, and get ready to test out your beach-based fishing skills! You’ll be joined by an experienced captain and team of guides along the shoreline, where you’ll reel in your catch without a boat in sight.

Captain Richard Huggins fell in love with shoreline fishing when he joined up with a fishing team that participates in land-based tournaments. This gave him a unique insight into the many perks that shoreline fishing has to offer – guests who struggle with sea sickness get the opportunity to enjoy casting off and reeling ‘em in, families can spend quality time together and learn a new skill at the same time, and for experts, time is spent fishing rather than traveling!

This was enough to convince your captain to start his own land-based charter company, and he warmly welcomes up to 6 guests to join him on an angling adventure in Cape San Blas. Capt. Richard’s trips are suitable for all types of anglers, from hardcore fishermen to tourists looking for a seriously special day out, and he works hard to make sure that each excursion is perfectly tailored to every individual group.

Depending on when you visit, you’ll be hooking a huge host of world-famous Floridian fish. Species that you’ll cast off for include Snook, Permit, King and Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, and even Yellowfin Tuna, plus whatever else is biting. Your captain will have you using a mix of tackle and techniques, and will help you master them like a pro. Feeling more adventurous? You can opt for a “Shark special” trip, where you’ll use heavy gear to battle Tope and Hammerhead.

Rods, reels, bait, and tackle are provided. Bring a license and a camera – Shark species are catch, tag, and release. Join Xtreme Off The Beach Charters and get ready for a truly one-off adventure!

Capt. Richard has been fishing since he was 10 years old, and it's fair to say that angling is one of his biggest passions. He likes to say that he was born into it, so it was only natural that he'd find a way to turn this passion into his full-time job! He runs Xtreme Off The Beach Charters, which introduce anglers to fishing from a whole new perspective – rather than heading out on a boat, all adventures take place from various shorelines all over Florida and Georgia. Capt. Richard's charter started out as a land-based fishing team that participated in different Red Drum and Shark tournaments off the beach. He saw how popular this type of fishing was, not just with hardcore fishermen, but also with families and budding anglers. Now, he works alongside 9 other guides to provide incredible, unique adventures across two states – and even better, they're suitable for the whole family! Anglers of all ages and skill levels are warmly welcomed to try out this incredible style of fishing.
