Pcb Water Adventures takes anglers of all levels of expertise for a great time on the water. Panama City fishing means a lot of fish biting year-round. Always ready to fish. With your experienced captain Jim, this image will come true – he’ll put you on fish and make sure you enjoy it.

You’ll have your water adventure on board a brand new 25’ Key West boat, built in 2020 and equipped with the latest navigational gadgets to give you speed and precision. It can accommodate up to 4 anglers who will go around reefs and wrecks, stay inshore, or brave further out. The vessel has a live bait box, an icebox to keep your catch cool, and the necessary safety equipment.

You can choose from rich fishing grounds of these waters – go for Amberjack, Cobia, tasty Snapper, the likes of Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, or the occasional Sailfish. Panama City Beach is blessed with numerous species near the coastline and offshore, and with the experienced crew, you’re in for a treat.

Further out, up to 25 miles of the coast, are really big fish. To get there and still have plenty of time fishing, book some of the longer trips. It’s up to you to choose – Capt. Jim will provide assistance, and make your time worth the while.

He’s a seasoned and passionate fisherman, and along with his first mate Darrius will turn your trip into real excitement. To honor their efforts, it would be nice to leave gratuities. Bring your friends, kids, families, or fellow anglers.

Rods, reels, and tackle are supplied onboard, and from then on you can employ your skills to land some hefty fish. Travel times range from 30 minutes to an hour, dock to dock, depending on how far offshore you go – the rest of the duration is pure fishing fun!

Join Pcb Water Adventures and explore the plentiful waters of Panama City Beach, making some amazing memories!
