Why Book a Private Spring Break Fishing Charter in St. Petersburg?

Bucket List Adventure!

YACHTFISH’s private fishing charters will have your family heading out into the fresh ocean air for the experience of a lifetime. These incredible bonding experiences will get you working together as a team, as you prepare for an unforgettable, heart-pounding fight.

Regardless of the fish species you encounter, you will all need to focus on technique, bait, timing, teamwork and endurance to reel in some of nature’s finest offerings.

But don’t worry – you’re not alone, you’ll be guided by our experienced Captains who have decades of experience on the water. Knowing all of St. Pete’s local hotspots, they’ll take you out into the Gulf of Mexico near wrecks, reefs and schools of fish to reel in a catch to shout about! Think Sharks, if they interest you!

With patience and guidance from your Captain, your adrenaline will surge when it’s action time. As you reel in your mystery catch, the fish will be leaping out of the water, tugging back, ducking, diving and putting your family to the test.

In these moments, the whole family will bond in a way you just can’t find elsewhere.

Is a Spring Break Fishing Charter Suitable for My Kids?

Here at YACHTFISH we regularly welcome kids of all ages and skill levels – from young beginners to adult angling specialists. Fear not, we plan our days to ensure everyone has the experience of a lifetime.

These trips are great for all kids, even those who aren’t used to ocean life. They’ll learn so much about local marine life, the importance of protecting nature and just connecting with the environment. It also educates them on teamwork, patience and how fish get to their plates.

We regularly have parents come back praising how it boosted their kid’s bravery and self-confidence. Why? Because once you’ve caught a fish, you become aware of the possibilities in your physical and mental strength.

Trust us though, these trips can also be a real laugh. Seeing Dad giggle like a child when the fish surfaces or just sharing time together en route to the hotspots is always a treat.

Private Boats

YACHTFISH Fishing Charters offer private boats only. So your family doesn’t need to worry about tourists or strangers destroying your vibe. It’s just you and our expert Captains!

What Type of Fishing Charter Should We Book for Spring Break?

YACHTFISH offers deep-sea and inshore fishing charters in and around St. Petersburg, Florida this spring break. Here are the differences:

Inshore Fishing:

We recommend inshore fishing charters for families with young kids, as these are shorter trips compared to deep-sea fishing. While still multi-hour experiences, you’ll stay within sight of the coastline and get into the action quickly. Inshore fishing is all about fast-paced action, with minimal waiting around! The catches may be smaller sometimes, but the fun is to the max!

Deep-Sea Fishing

Deep-sea fishing is a great alternative for families interested in patient, full-day experiences! These are ultimate bonding experiences, as you’ll head out for long trips into the Gulf of Mexico with no land in sight to hunt BIG fish! Trophy-sized fish are a possibility, and you’ll enjoy hours of laughs, fun and intense teamwork while also taking home a few good fish stories to share.

Dolphin Tours

YACHTFISH also offers Dolphin Tours and Manatee Tours for an alternative charter experience this spring break in St. Petersburg. On our tours, you’ll see the stunning coastlines of St. Pete Beach, including mansions and nature. But best of all, you’ll get up close to the Gulf’s cutest creatures – Manatees and Dolphins. These trips are perfect for younger kids looking to get out on the water, without getting their hands dirty.

Booze Cruises

For adult families, why not consider a booze cruise? YACHTFISH’s unique booze cruises allow you to control the sound system and enjoy your favorite drink, while our expert Captain safely tours you around the magnificent sights.

Many of the restaurants are right on the water for easy access on your way back to the dock.

Be sure to ask us or check the FWC regulations over species consumption, if you have your eyes on a specific catch.
