Tampa Charter Fishing Rates

When choosing a charter company to take out family, friends or clients keep in mind Tampa Fishing Charter Rates are not only for a boat ride to the fishing grounds.  Rates also cover things like the vast knowledge of Tampa Bay, on the fly instruction and the decades spent learning and patterning fish to make your charter the most productive it can be. As your host I take pride in the fact that I offer professional family friendly fishing charters in Tampa Fl. I use top of the line equipment and multiple boats to make your fishing charter one to remember!  So, if you’re an experienced angler and  want to toss plastics deep in the back country on the skiff or novice and want to fun fish on the bay boat with the family, friends or clients don’t settle for a lesser experience for a lesser rate.  I look forward to fishing with you. please see my reviews on Google 


1Tampa Fishing Charter Rates (24’Bay Boat)

Rates are for up to 4 anglers. Parties of 4 or more will need to have one boat and captain for every 4 people. Rates listed are per boat. Also every charter is provided with waters, gatorades and soft drinks iced down for you. BYOB . Catch and release is highly encouraged and appreciated. However should you desire a meal, no problem. Often there are good tasting fish around to harvest, trout, snapper, spanish mackerel, sheepshead and silver trout depending on seasons.  Capt Tim works with Hula Bay to do a hook and cook if you’d like to go that route.

All reservations will need to be accompanied by a $200.00 deposit. The $200.00 will be deducted from the total price at the end of the charter. If you need to cancel, fall ill, or have a change of heart, the deposit will be refundable up until 72 hours of the scheduled charter. Within 72 hours of the charter the deposit cannot be refunded. ( the preceding is on a case by case basis, I’m reasonable) If you don’t show up and fail to make contact while I wait at the dock for you, full rate will be charged.


Capt Tim has a network of guides he works closely with. Sometimes he is already booked on your desired day for your preferred trip. If this is the case you will be set up with one of the areas top notch captains. Like Captain Tim, they will be fun, positive, hard working, and give you a first rate experience whether its fishing or a cruise trip, your satisfaction is priority one, and Tim and his group work hard to make that happen. The Tampa Charter Fishing Rates stay consistent with the group of Captains Tim works with.

Tampa Charter Fishing Rates may change throughout the season and depends on what species is preferred, what angling method is used, and how many are in your party. 

All fish that are harvested for consumption will be cleaned and bagged by the Captain.

Trips cancelled for weather will be rescheduled if possible, if not you will be refunded. Capt Tim has been doing this a long time and sometimes its just not going to be a good day due to weather, fronts etc…In this case trips maybe shuffled around to get everyone fished that we can. Sometimes this may find you with a different Captain, not to worry Swift Fish Charters only works with the best in the business, all veteran captains with a lifetime of experience fishing Tampa Bay.

Serving Tampa Bay, St Petersburg, Tampa and Homosassa. However I can only be in one place at a time and I work with some top notch charter Captains in the areas other than Tampa Bay (my home waters) so if you can’t travel far or just wanna fish where you are I can set you set up with the right guide to make your fishing charter one to remember!$
