For your next trip to Florida, do something that will really get the adrenaline pumping, and book a trip with Shark Infested Charters. Captain Chuck has been fishing for over 2 decades and loves to show his clients a great time out on the water. Helping people and keeping them safe is in his blood – he also works as a Florida State Firefighter/Paramedic, so you know you’ll be in safe hands with him.

The day will be spent on a 24’ center console that has enough space for all 6 anglers to fish form simultaneously. There’s also seating on board for the short ride out to the fishing grounds.

These trips offer full flexibility. The departure time can be changed, and you can decide what type of fishing you’d like to do. This ranges from targeting Sharks to bottom fishing, or heading to the reefs and wrecks. Some of the species you can target include Blacktip Shark, Tiger Shark, Red Snapper, Flounder, Black Seabass, Amberjack, and plenty more. The captain can help you choose where to fish based on the species you’d like to target.

Children over 6 are welcome on board and there are 2 life vests for them. If more than 2 children are coming on the trip, the parents will need to bring another life vest.

There is bottled water on board, so feel free to bring along your own food and drink. This can go into the captain’s cooler.

Everything you need for a productive fishing day is included in the price of the trips. This includes top quality rods and reels, bait, and even your fishing license.

Book a trip with Shark Infested Charters today for an unforgettable fishing adventure that the whole family will enjoy.
