Reel Runner Gulf Adventures offers an array of experiences for sea-lovers or fishing-enthusiasts! Join Captain Nick in Dunedin and start your adventure! Whether you’re here for fishing or scalloping trips, you’ll spend a day on a comfortable boat and have fun. These trips do not need you to be an avid angler - it’s enough if you’re a person who loves being outdoors and feel eager to experience something new.

One of the reasons these trips are so great is because of the 32’ Luhrs fishing machine. This sportfishing boat provides a fast, safe, and comfortable ride, no matter what fishing spots you visit. If the heat becomes too much for you, you can always go to the air-conditioned cabin and rest in the lounge area. There’s also a private bathroom, basic kitchen appliances, and TV.

For the toughest fishing duels, you can use a fighting chair. The boat also features a flybridge, trolling gear, a live bait tank, and a cooler. Whatever you choose as your target, you’ll find the gear you need to catch it on the boat.

Scalloping trips are family’s favorite as even the youngest ones can join the action. However, if you’re here to land something bigger, take a fishing trip and target anything from Tarpon, Permit, and Kingfish, to Barracuda, Grouper, and Shark.

Capt. Nick covers your fishing license, equipment, even snacks and drinks.

Join Reel Runner Gulf Adventures, spend a day on the water, and leave everything that worries you on the shore.

Ever since he was a little boy, Captain Nick has been passionate about fishing. His first fishing trips were with his father and a few years later he started working as a deck hand and engineer for Empress Cruise Lines. Finally, he was able to buy his own boat and start a charter business. He loves to share his knowledge with every guest on the boat.
