With countless top-reviewed, family-friendly things to do in St Pete Beach, Florida, researching and selecting a mid-day activity can be moderately dizzying. But one activity that you simply cannot leave off of your Gulf Coast itinerary is a deep-sea fishing voyage. Gulf Winds Resort has a splendid relationship with not one, not two, but three award-winning St Pete Beach fishing charters. Whether you’re aiming to hook a trophy shark, dazzling tarpon, or lengthy barracuda, your group will have the time of their lives at sea this winter in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Best St Pete Beach Fishing Charters

To ensure that your upcoming Gulf Coast escape is nothing short of flawless, we’ve compiled the three premier St Pete fishing charters based on personal experience and customer feedback. As you might expect, there are dozens of fishing charters in Tampa, Florida, but these three businesses are in a class all by themselves. Let’s start this list with a Madeira Beach staple: Hubbard’s Marina.

Hubbard’s Marina

Location: 170 Johns Pass Boardwalk, Madeira Beach, FL
Price range: $55-$840
Length: 5-63 hours
Style: deep sea
Why choose Hubbard’s? It’s difficult to sum up Hubbard’s Marina in one paragraph, but we’ll try. Yes, you read that right—this top-rated marina provides 63-hour deep-sea fishing in St Pete Beach where lucky anglers can battle marlins, tuna, and wahoo deep in the Gulf of Mexico. Most travelers, however, select the five-hour trophy shark excursion, because who wouldn’t want to take down Jaws? Not only do the folks at Hubbard’s Marina provide world-class expertise, hands-on guidance, and marvelous onboard dining, you won’t find more affordable fishing charters in St Pete Beach.

Dolphin Landings Charter Boats

Location: 4737 Gulf Boulevard, St Pete Beach, FL
Price range: $55-$1,100
Length: 5-8 hours
Style: offshore, deep sea, and inshore
Why choose Dolphin Landings? Beginners, novices, and large groups flock to Dolphin Landings’ offshore fishing party boat. For just $55 per adult, travelers can hop aboard the Anglers Dream for a five-hour offshore voyage. Anglers are allowed to lug canned beer onto the vessel for no charge, and parking is free. But we particularly appreciate Dolphin Landings’ inshore fishing charters, all of which target tarpon, grouper, sea trout, snook, redfish, and many more colorful creatures. These one-to-four-person St Pete Beach fishing charters depart just 1.4 miles from Gulf Winds Resort and cruise through Boca Ciega Bay.

Go Fast! Fishing Charters

Location: 12795 Kingfish Drive, Treasure Island, FL
Price range: call 1-727-480-6408 for pricing

Why choose Go Fast? Sam and Joe Maisano, the father-son team that runs Go Fast, provide an authentic fishing experience for those looking for an exhilarating, all-inclusive voyage. There isn’t a honey hole in the Tampa area that the Maisanos haven’t surveyed. Their expertise and personalized service typically lead to monster hauls of grouper, snapper, kingfish, cobia, and, yes, even trophy sharks! The Maisanos have a working relationship with several local restaurants, so anglers can have their catch cooked by an award-winning chef de cuisine.
