Reel Cortez Deep Sea Fishing has the best rates in and around Anna Maria Island.
Affordable fishing made to fit any budget.
Our private trips of 4 hours are $650 and the split trip is only *$125 per person. We offer a 6 hour fishing charter at the private rate of $850 or the split rate of *$165! Groups of 5 & 6 are private only. 1-4 anglers can opt for the split option to save money. Our charters include your bait, license, tackle, clean and bagging of your catch.
The way a split trip works is similar to a party boat or head boat deep sea fishing excursion. If you are a small group of 1-4 anglers looking to go out fishing offshore or inshore but do not want to foot the whole boat expense, we will build a trip for your group or put your group on an existing split trip. Split trips are a discounted way to go fishing without that large private charter cost. They are not guaranteed as you will always have a minimum number of people needed to make the trip go at the per person cost. *Offshore trips are a minimum of 5 anglers and the inshore minimum of 4 anglers.
If you have a larger party exceeding the 6 people of our 1st boat, no worries. We have a second boat your group can charter along side the first. We will take your large party to fish in the same area and have a little contest between the boats. This is a fun way to spend an afternoon with a little friendly competition.
Food and beverage are not provided so remember to pack a lunch. You will always have a 1st mate at your side to assist you during your trip. It is a long running tradition in Florida that the 1st mates do work for tips only, so remember to take care of them before you leave. Being tipped based on performance keeps them on their toes and your hook loaded with bait.
Don’t have a way to cook at home or want to dine on your catch while it is at it’s freshest point…..we even have a “Hook to Platter” option available thru the Seafood Shack Restaurant.
Items to Bring: hat, sunglasses, sunblock, water, food, camera, small cooler with ice (we do not provide ice for food and beverage)
Items NOT to Bring: bananas, glass bottles or containers of any kind, drugs, GPS or location detection device (this will be confiscated and not returned if brought aboard our boat)
Cancellation Policy: 7 Days from date of trip. Anyone canceling within the 7 day window will be charged the full amount of the charter they have reserved. Reservations are not mandatory but a convenience to anyone who chooses to book with a company. When you book you are removing not only our boat out of inventory but also your captain and crew. There are many factors that affect the days of operation in our industry such, as weather and tourism, that are out of our control. This is why we are firm on our reservation policy to ensure that our business and our crew’s lively hood are protected. Thank you from the Reel Cortez Crew!
