If you’re looking to experience the best that the West Coast of Florida and Tampa Bay have to offer, you can’t go wrong with Far Horizon Charters Inc. Launching out of renowned John’s Pass in Madeira Beach, they have been running charters for over 25 years, and they specialize in sportfishing, spearfishing, and scuba diving.
Captain Michael Nalewicki welcomes you aboard his custom-built 42’ Jersey Marine offshore sportfishing yacht powered by twin 450 HP Cummins diesel engines. It’s clean, roomy, comfortable, and comes with a spacious cockpit packed with the latest marine electronics and safety gear. The boat also has AC and heating, a restroom and shower, beds, TV, and a galley with a refrigerator and microwave.
On board, you’ll also find coolers, a fish box, and a live bait tank. This fishing machine can accommodate 6 anglers – depending on the technique, customers will either fish at the same time or take turns. Kids of all ages are welcome, parents should just bring life jackets for kids under 5.
You should arrive at the location 15 minutes prior to departure. The captain will then take you exploring the bite of these bountiful offshore waters, as well as productive reef and wreck areas. You’ll be bottom fishing and trolling for the likes of Snapper, Amberjack, Barracuda, Sharks, Jack Crevalle, Hogfish, Kingfish, Grouper, and more. Spearfishing is also an option if you bring your own gear.
All other fishing gear (mostly by Penn), live bait, lures, and fishing licenses will be covered by the charter. After the trip is done, the first mate will gladly clean and bag your catch, so 15–20% tips are recommended. Soft drinks and snacks are provided – you should just bring your own lunch.
Far Horizon Charters Inc. will take care of everything else and make sure you go home with brag-worthy stories!
Fuel Surcharge: Please note that there is a fuel surcharge not included in the price. The cost of fuel will be added at the end of the trip.
