Anna Maria Island – There’s no better place to spend a day out fishing and/or boating than the crystal clear Gulf of Mexico! Grouper, Snapper, Sharks, Trigger Fish, Spanish Mackerel and many other species are found off Anna Maria Island depending on the season. The surrounding water around Anna Maria Island is a small boat fishers’ playground where you’ll find snook as well as red fish.
There are charter guides where you’ll be sure to catch a glimpse of a dolphin or a manatee! They will bring you around to the shallow parts of the waters to pick up shells, starfish and sand dollars! Some charters offer sunset sails, Egmont Key Expeditions, full moon sails, private charters, dolphin watching, etc. Some charters will also include some of the same amenities of home: A/C, head, galley, and soft drinks, along with rods, bait, ice, tackle, license, permits and instructions for new beginners, and will even clean your fish for you.
Here are just some, of many, places that offer fishing, boating & charters:
