Adventure Coast Charters

Come and fish the ‘nature coast’ of western Florida with Captain Jamie Smith and Adventure Coast Charters. Let the experience hook you, your family and friends, with some awesome fishing on one of Florida’s last remaining pristine coastlines. With 30 years’ experience on the waters, Capt. Jamie will make sure you have an unforgettable trip, be it inshore or scalloping.

Trips will take place aboard a new 2019 Tiburon boat, which is powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine. This boat will keep the whole family comfortable throughout the day as you experience up close the outstanding nature and marine life that Florida has to offer.

There’s a whole range of trips to suit everyone, catering to anything from flats fishing for Redfish, Trout, Snook, Flounder, and Shark, to Scallop adventures which includes scuba diving. Rods and reels are provided, along with equipment to enable you to jig, pop or troll for your catch. The captain will even clean and fillet your caught fish for you to take home. All you need to do is bring plenty of sunscreen and snacks, and then you’re set to enjoy your day on the water.

Having run fishing trips professionally in the area for over 10 years, Capt. Jamie knows all the right places to reel them in and is happy to lend a helping hand to anglers of all ages and experiences, as he hopes to pass on his passion for fishing. Whether you want to partake in some adventurous and fast-paced fishing, scallop, scuba dive, or just relax; Adventure Coat Charters is here for you.
