Gulf coast deep sea fishing from Panama City Beach is an adventure like no other. Surrounded by salt air, miles from shore, feeling the power of the sea surge around you- this is an experience every angler should have at least once in life.
Our Experience Your Adventure
We know your vacation time is short and you don’t want to spend it all trying to put together a fishing trip or finding the gear you need. No worries, though; Aquatic Adventures can hook you up. When you book a deep sea fishing tour with us, we bring the expertise and you bring the sunscreen. Our chartered fishing tours include fishing licenses, tackle, rods and reels, bait, and Coast Guard approved safety equipment. Our experienced Captain and crew know the Gulf waters well. The waters off the Florida coast are some of the world’s best for deep sea fishing. Our charter boat can accommodate your group of up to six people for a half day of fishing. Just meet us at the Lighthouse Marina and we’ll take you and your guests on an excursion like no other.
Get Up Close and Personal With the Gulf Coast’s Wildlife
Deep sea fishing off the coast of Panama City Beach is a wonderful experience for people of all ages. The waters of the Gulf are home to over 15,000 species of animals. We can’t guarantee that you’ll see them during our trip, but the Gulf is even home to Orca and Great White Sharks. While on your fishing tour you may encounter dolphins, sea turtles, pelicans and many other wonderful examples of Florida wildlife.
The Season is Warming Up
This time of year is perfect for an adventure at sea. As the gulf waters warm up so do the fish. Triggerfish and mahi-mahi are on the move. Throughout May and into early summer you can angle for amberjack, and snapper season starts right around the corner in June. No matter what the date, something will be biting and you can bet it will be big. You can expect a workout as these fish don’t give up easily and the bites keep coming. Our first excursion of the season brought us a mahi-mahi and a near miss on a blue marlin. One of our recent guests caught and released six Red Snappers on his tour. Check out this chart to see which fish you can keep every month of the year.
Capture A Memory
If your fish isn’t a keeper or you just don’t want to share your hotel room with a fish, you can still capture your catch of the day in a photo. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission gladly accepts photographic proof of your Saltwater Grand Slam. To participate, you just catch and release the three types of specified fish within 24 hours and then apply for your certificate and T-shirt. Kids have a category all their own- the Small Fry Slam. If you decide to keep what you catch our crew will keep your fish on ice until you return to shore. Many of our local restaurants are happy to prepare and serve your fish to you and your guests.
Whether you keep or release, watch the sea life, or fight your catch to the finish, our Aquatic Adventure deep sea fishing tour will be a trip worth remembering. Bring your friends or bring your family, you’ll go home with a new adventure tucked away in your heart.
