Anna Maria Island Fishers and Fun is here to show you the stunning waters of Anna Maria Island, Tampa Bay, and Sarasota. Fishing Charters, Dolphin Tours, Sunset Tours, BYOD Fun Cruises, and Eco Tours.

Captain Joshua can tell you all about the local fishery. These waters are known for Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Trout, Snappers, Groupers, Mackerals, Sharks and more – Guaranteed to catch fish or money back !

Capt. Joshua is happy to have kids aboard, so the whole family can come and unplug for the day! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. Snacks are also a good idea so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty belly!

You’ll be dropping lines from a 24’ Ranger bay boat that can carry up to 6 passengers with cushions! It has all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. Rods, reels, and tackle are provided, as well as lures. Live bait is included, but be sure to ask about it so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself.

There’s no need to buy a fishing license, so you can drive right over and come aboard without any hassle! Be mindful that some species may have special rules or limited seasons. Simply ask and your captain can tell you more. You can’t go wrong when you bring a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen (non-spray). Drinks are included, free of charge. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Now, time to hit the water with Anna Maria Island Fishers and Fun !!
