Our deep sea fishing crew is the forerunner for Clearwater fishing charters. Pura Vida Charters is managed by a third generation charter captain in St. Petersburg.  How does this benefit you...by providing the latest in customer satisfaction and GREAT fishing!

Departing from Clearwater and John's Pass, our charter boat crew provides every group with expert advice and support to make your offshore expedition exciting.   From Grouper, Snapper, and Amberjack to Kingfish, Barracuda, Tuna, and Sharks, we have the capability to get you on the fish.

Our boats are conveniently located near Clearwater Beach, minutes to the Gulf.  We are a short drive from St. Petersburg, and Tampa. From Orlando, we are directly West from the interstates.  Our captains and crew take pride in their work to ensure that your trip is both fun and exciting when travel offshore into the Gulf.

The Gulf of Mexico is well known for being the grouper capital of the world. In the reefs, wrecks, and ledges we fish there are black grouper, red grouper, gag grouper, scamp grouper, and goliath grouper.  Aside from those bottom fish there are gray snapper, mangrove snapper, red snapper, and trigger fish that are caught on the same type of reef.  For surface trolling we have an abundance of king mackerel, spanish mackerel, barracuda, mahi-mahi, and always sharks.  There are countless trips to take into our Gulf for different target species and we accommodate any angler. Clearwater deep sea fishing is fun for the whole family!
