Today, after more than three years, iTREKKERS will close our doors. We share this news with heavy hearts. Our close-knit team has worked tirelessly to help newcomers to the outdoors make new memories and feel motivated to spend more time outside.
We introduced outdoor adventure to almost 4,500 people.
We helped thousands of people learn to hike, camp, fish, scallop, swim, explore, stand up paddle, and kayak. We helped families, friends, co-workers and community groups become passionate about the outdoors.
Our customers loved what we did, who we were and what we stood for. We are proud to have helped in the creation of memories, skills, and passion. We are proud of having created a connection between people and the outdoors.
We hit many milestones, scored several rounds of investment capital, grew our team and our network of guides, and drummed up significant interest in the product. We also made errors that cost us in time, resources and money throughout the journey.
In the end, we saw smoke. But there were greater forces at play that prevented us from achieving what we wanted to achieve.
We began as a tech startup designed to connect outdoor newcomers to the outdoors. We realized — too late — that our platform was becoming a third party booking service and the cost of acquisition continued to be too high, draining our cash. Moreover, it took us too long to understand the emotional blocker that was keeping people from getting outdoors on our charters.
With this newfound knowledge in hand, we achieved a sharp pivot to a promising new lessons-based model in a matter of two weeks. Our team created a new business plan and an “outdoor university,” where low-cost lessons came with all equipment and an instructor. We developed a growing community of outdoors enthusiasts and saw the number of attendees rise month over month.
Ultimately, it wasn’t enough. We pivoted too late. The best fit for our market is a lifestyle business for a potential franchise; scaling would have been difficult at best. We just were not going to be profitable on our projected path forward.
Nevertheless, we celebrate everything that we have achieved.
We strongly believe in our mission and see the need for a company to continue doing what we have been doing. We still believe that teaching people outdoor skills to get them to connect with nature is an amazing concept. We were all, and all remain, passionate about the mission we set out to accomplish. We still hope to see people go outside and explore nature. We still want to encourage others to care about the environment and preserving it for our children.
Most importantly, we thank you for making it possible.
We thank you, our customers, who joined us for camping overnights and fishing tournaments and paddleboard classes. We thank you, our community, who shared our social media posts and “liked” our photos and helped us spread the word about gettng outside. We thank you, our team and their family members, who have worked day and night toward a common goal and whose lives have now been reshaped by a deeper appreciation of nature.
We thank you, our investors and our board, for your guidance, good faith, and generosity in helping us reach many milestones along the way. We thank you, our friends in the media world, including Chad Crawford and How To Do Florida, for your kindness and understanding. We thank you, each and every guide who helped our customers make new memories outside along the way. We thank you, the Tampa Bay tech community and Tampa Bay Wave, for your support of and belief in our goals.
Lastly, we thank you, the Tampa Bay community as a whole, for allowing us to take this journey in our beautiful city. We have enjoyed every minute.
Reviews from our Customers
“On Dec. 2nd I had the pleasure of taking part in the SUP eco tour. Upon arrival, I saw Dylan onsite with the SUP’s getting everything ready for our tour. I introduced myself and Dylan took the time to explain everything to me. Where we would be going, what we may see, how to get on the board and other safey aspects. After a quick refresher on paddling and how to turn we were on our way. Dylan kept checking to make sure I was keeping up and as we paddled over to the first mangrove area we chatted. He pointed out fish, stingrays, birds and told me about the benefits the mangroves provide to Florida. I am so happy I did this, I had so much fun!”
“Just spent two wonderful trips with Captain Jason Semeyn in Tampa we had a great time and caught a lot of fish, Jason is a great guide and a lot of fun to be around. I would highly recommend him to anyone he will be our go to guy when we come back.”
“Had a blast taking SUP lessons in Gulfport today! Professional friendly patient instructors!”
“Made my first attempt at stand up paddle boarding at Gulfport Beach today with Jason as instructor, and it won’t be the last! He was very informative and supportive as he got a fat old guy up on the board and paddling around without killing himself. Highly recommended if you’re thinking about getting into this highly Floridian activity!”
“Had a great experience yesterday paddle boarding… our guide, Dylan was knowledgeable, easy going and fun… my 12 y/o said that It was “cool” and would like to go again… which we will… in addition, Dylan was telling us about other activities that are offered as well… all affordable… can’t wait…Thanks Dylan!!!!”
“Went out for a sandbar boat day with a group of friends and we had a blast. So great to just show up, jump on the boat, go out and have fun, then get dropped back off at the dock. Great to not have worry about trailering or cleaning the boat! Bonus, You get a boat captain so we did not have to worry about a DD to get us around safely! Jason was a great guide and we will definitely be signing up for more trips!!”
“This is the second time my dad went fishing with Brian Caudll. Brian is great with my dad who is 88 and this time a friend of his went with him. They caught redfish and trout and had a wonderful time on Monday May 22, 2017. Dad and his friend Mark can’t wait to go back out again. Beautiful weather great fishingand dad was happy.”
“Dylan is very personable and professional as an instructor. Did not leave my side until I was ready👍. Karla was super helpful in rescheduling my lesson not once but twice ! I am going back with my kids and can’t wait til I can go on one of the eco tours!!!”
“I just had an amazing nearshore fishing charter with Captain Jeremy! ITREKKERS and their team were nothing but professional and provided an exceptional experience from start to finish. I would recommend using their services whole heartedly. I had an amazing time and can’t wait to go again!!”
“I just took a fishing lesson from Jason in Gulfport. He is such a great teacher. I can’t believe I learned how to tie knots and cast in such a short time. Can’t wait to start fishing!!”
“I’ve long been envious of successful paddle boarders. My first and only attempt ended in failure, turns out I did everything wrong. After receiving an easy to follow, start to standing to paddling lesson from Dylan, I am now excited to ‘take the boards out’ with everyone else. Dylan was fantastic and is highly recommended.”
“My son , two grandsons and I️ went to the basic fishing in Tampa. Captain Jeremy was very friendly and knowledgeable- he shared a wealth of information. He also very patient and great with my grandsons helping them to cast We all had a blast and will definitely sign up for more adventures with them!!”
“Super awesome service! I did the paddleboard/kayak fishing trek for my buddy’s birthday. I caught my first fish ever and our guide showed us around to some great fishing spots. He also was a huge help when our hook got stuck in a crab cage and bushes. Literally, would’ve never gone fishing if I didn’t go through iTrekkers! Really easy and totally worth it!”
“I booked sandbar party. My friend and I were paired with Captain Steve! He was amazing met us at the local marina! Even brought fishing equipment and we got to do a bit of fishing!!”
“We had a great time and experience! Shiela was great and extremely knowledgeable! Would highly recommend paddle boarding with iTrekkers, especially if it’s your first time.”
“My partner and I took a kayak fishing tour after seeing iTrekkers on the Morning Blend. We had a FABULOUS time! Met our guide at the Courtney Campbell Causeway and headed out for a wonderful 4 hour excursion. Our guide (Matthew) was really great. Knowledgeable, polite, helpful and made us feel safe and confident in where we went and what we did. The bite was a little slow that day, but we caught a few and enjoyed ourselves anyways. Highly recommend iTrekkers. Especially if you don’t own your own equipment. They truly take care of everything so you can just relax and/or have fun!”
“I saw iTREKKERS on the Morning Blend. I decided to try it being an amateur camper. I haven’t been camping since I was a kid and I didn’t set up then either. Haha Tucker was very patient with all my questions. He had everything set up for us. It was amazing! No work involved! Everything was clean and even the firewood was set up for us. We had a great time exploring, roasting marshmallows and enjoying the great outdoors. I would totally do this again and recommend their service to anyone! You’ll enjoy yourself.
“A friend & I camped out on Jan. 17, 2017, at Cypress Creek Preserve to test our skills at camping overnight. We’re 65 & 74 yro hikers, but haven’t had a campout experience in years. Tucker, from ITrekkers, set up a 4-man tent & had all the necessary equipment we would need for our overnight stay. He gave us advice on all the supplies we had to use. He even showed me how to use my tiny propane gas stove (light-weight equipment for hiking the Appalachian Trail) and my Sawyerwater filtration system to keep me supplied with drinking water while on a 6-7 day hike. To an experienced camper & hiker, you’re probably laughing at this, but our overnight stay in the tent, making our dinner, snacks, & breakfast was a test of how we could survive our next hike on the AT. Thank you, ITrekkers and Tucker, for providing us the professional and helpful camping experience.”
“I went out fishing in the bay with captain Jeremy this past weekend . I caught a bunch of fish and Jeremy was very knowledgable . I learned a lot. I plan on going agsin soon@”
“We took our two kids out with Captain Joel, and we all had an amazing time! Was a group of six of us, and Captain Joel made sure each and every one of us was catching fish and having a good time! Best Capital out there! Can’t wait to go again!!”
“Went out with capt. Jason Semeyn and it was awesome. Slammed the boat and had a great time. I would recommend him to any customer of itrekkers.”
“We used iTrekkers for inshore fishing in Tampa and had an amazing experience. Jason was great with the 2 children on board and a pleasure to spend the day with.”
“Great Instruction, Great Fun, Obscenely��Cheap Prices For High End Quality Service��� Thank You For your wonderful Hospitality. Hope to see you soon�”
“Had a great Father/Son day on the water with Mathew Brewington as our guide. We had an amazing trip, we fished the waters around Sunset Beach in Tarpon Springs. Mathew was very professional and had everything ready for us to go when we got there.”
“Absolutely the best choice for booking a camping or fishing trip. Caught over 60 fish with Capt. Hodges and had an incredible camping time.”
“iTrekkers found us a great guide on short notice, and we had a terrific time. We caught snook, reds, trout and others in spite of tough water conditions.”
“I have not had the pleasure of experiencing iTrekkers’ guided adventures, however I’m stoked and ready to try. Yesterday while stranded and experiencing car trouble, my partner and I had the fortune of running into Jacob Lishen of iTrekkers. Jacob went out of his way to get us back out on the road and was even kind enough to give us his contact information in case we faced any other issues. It was a rare and pleasant surprise to meet such a kind stranger. I can’t wait to go on one of their journeys! Thanks again Jacob!!”
“Absolutely wonderful experience start to end! Karla was amazing to deal with even though I caught her while she was off work! She was eager to make this happen for us even though there was a chance we would have had to cancel last minute due to our fathers questionable health. We had to move our reservation last minute and they could not have been more understanding and flexible. Jason was our guide and he was so easy to talk to, knowledgeable and kind. Our father loved boating and being on the water and we wanted to give him one final boating experience as he is fighting end stage cancer. Thanks for customizing a experience for us and for giving us a memory to hold on to. Highly recommend itrekkers!!”
“We are in town visiting family and wanted to take our son fishing for the first time. From the moment we booked the trip we were we were taken care of by Karla the Operations Manager. On the water we were greeted by Captain Jeremy and Captain Cody. Both did an outstanding job showing my son the ropes when it came to fishing. His first fish was a 20lbs Jack!
This experience will be remembered by my Family for the rest of our lives. If you are looking for a chartered fishing experience iTrekkers is the way to go!”
“Booked a Fishing Charter through itrekkers.com for my team and we had a great day out on the water. The captain was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He took us to active fishing spots, managed the bait/hooking process and gave us plenty of tips to become better anglers.
I recommend using iTrekkers for booking your next or first fishing charter. Using their “trusted” guides and their secure payment system make for a easy booking process. This was my first time booking a fishing charter and I will surly do it again. Get outdoors and enjoy the world!”
“We had a great day with Capt Jason in early April near Boca Grande. It was crazy windy that day but he knew where to go to give us the experience we wanted. Highly recommended!”
“As a Florida native having fished the Tampa Bay area most of my life, I’ve never had a day on the water like this. There was an entire 30-minute sprint where every time I cast, I pulled out a fish. Tom at iTrekkers is about quality guides and a great experience. His list of guides, like Captain Bobby, are top notch and you can always expect a fun day on the water when using iTrekkers.”
“I had a great time fishing with iTrekkers! Caught a ton of fish and one the biggest snook I’ve ever seen. We also saw manatees and dolphins.”
“Unbelievable experience offshore fishing out of Johns Pass with Captain Kyle. Being my first time fishing, I was nervous, but the experienced crew took care of the whole process and really took the time to show you the tricks of the trade to make you feel comfortable. Though my arms are sore today, you just can’t beat that experience of reeling in plenty of grouper, red snapper and amber jack.”
“We went fishing in Boca Grande with Captain Jason Semeyn. We caught a whole bunch of trout, plus snook, bluefish and jack. We had a great time.”
“Karla at itrekkers did a great job of connecting me and my family with the very experienced and friendly Captain John Griffin who provided us with a fantastic and memorable fishing excursion. We had never done this kind of fishing before so he was very patient and attentive to helping us out to make sure we could continue fishing. He also knows where the fish are because we ended up catching over 40 fish all together which is exactly what we wanted to do. Thanks Karla and Captain John.”
“itrekkers.com is a can’t miss option when booking a fishing charter. Karla and Tom at the company quickly and easily set us up for a day long offshore trip with Captain Billy Nobles, and we had an amazing day with him and his mate, Taylor. The fishing, company, conversation, and weather couldn’t have been better for my friends, a client with his son, and me. Everyone had fresh fish for days and lots of good memories. I can’t recommend iTrekkers and Captain Billy enough! Thank you!”
“We went out on a guided kayak/SUP fishing trip and had a great time! The guide was very helpful and provided instruction to the less experienced members of the group. It was my first time fishing from a SUP and I was amazed at how easy it was. Thoroughly enjoyable! And they make it so easy. Just show up and fish!! I highly recommend iTrekkers for a great day out on the water.”
“I’ve gone out with Itrekkers many times and it’s always an amazing experience! We have done inshore fishing and SUP trips and the guides are always top notch! They do everything first class. I love the fact the guides not only have the best gear but they are incredible personable and fun. I will use them again and again!
“We had an awesome time night shark fishing with Jason! It was a perfect night. We caught a ton of different fish and even shark! It was a great experience. Everyone was very professional and helpful at Itrekkers. Jason was very knowledgable and made the trip easy and enjoyable. We will be fishing with them again and have already referred them to friends and family.”
“You have to try Paddle Fishing! Had so much fun trying this for the first time over the weekend! We went up near Sunset Beach in Tarpon Springs – it was so easy! Our guide Matt knew exactly where to all the fish were bitting – and we caught a ton of fish! Beautiful, relaxing morning on the water with my friend and my new friend, our guide Matt. He made it so fun, we laughed so hard! One of the best outdoor experiences I have had! iTrekkers is getting me outdoors and trying things I never thought I would be doing! A great time and I’ve already signed up for my next adventure!”
“I do plenty of fishing and have fished with many different guides in cities all over the place. itrekkers.com makes the process very easy, they took the guess work out of selecting a guide so that we could focus on enjoying our day on the water. I’d recommend itrekkers with 5 stars as their people care about delivering a 5 star experience and actually do. Thank you.”
“These guys made it too easy to go out for a morning of fishing on Tampa Bay. I showed up with a coffee in my hand and they handled everything else, including baiting hooks and some nice snacks. We caught a fun menagerie of interesting fish. These guys are top-shelf. Highly recommended.”
“While visiting the area on spring break, my wife, daughter and her friend rented a 17 footer from Blind Pass for 4 hours. We took the boat to Shell Key, snorkeled and collected shells, went out in the gulf a bit, then saw dolphins in the inlet. The experience was wonderful and the price was very reasonable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend them, and hoping to use them again next time!”
“If you are a beginner to fishing this is the ideal company to use. We went fishing out of Tampa(GANDY) with Captain Brian Caudill. Brian was did an awesome job and put us in great areas to fish . My son and I learned so much about fishing. Our experience was great and we cant wait to go again. Brian showed us a manatee and about 1000 sting rays!”
“Itrekkers got us “hooked up” big time–no pun intended. Our group of four (two from PA and Two from Tampa) had been on previous charters together in the Tampa area which had never lived up to our expectations. When we inquired with Tom from Itrekkers, he took the time to ask us questions, understand our needs and personalize our charter. Tom matched us up with a captain who was a perfect match for us and we had a fantastic and satisfying day off shore in the gulf. We limited out on grouper and caught six snapper, five of which were huge mangrove. We were also able to do some sport fishing for amberjacks, which wore us out. If you want to go out on a charter where your day is personalized to meet your desires, Itrekkers will get it done for you. Itrekkers culture of caring and actually taking the time to understand our needs was a first for our group. Thanks Tom—you will always have our business!”
“Excellent experience, from the easy-going captain and to the welcoming attitude of our kids. With kids, you always wonder how it will go, but with Captain Brain, look no more. From the beginning, he made my daughter feel part of the excursion and actually participate. Highly recommend this company for families.
With the kids we did inshore fishing and flats fishing. We were going after trout, snock, and redfish.”
Booking through iTrekkers was quick and seamless – – and Captain Jason Semeyn is top notch. He put us ON THE FISH! One of the best Boca Grande fishing experiences I’ve ever had. Would highly recommend iTrekkers to anyone looking to book a top-quality charter experience!”
“I had friends coming from out of town that wanted to go offshore. In the past I randomly found someone online and did not have the best experience. This time used itrekkers to find a captain and it was the right choice. The captain was confident we would have a good time and would pull in some nice fish. This was one of the best trips I have ever gone on. We were on fish all day, limited out on if grouper and caught a nice variety of others fish to add to the cooler.”
“We had a blast! Great guide for me and my friends over the week!”
iTrekkers is the best and easiest way to find a great charter captain in the Tampa Bay area! My father-in-law and I got hooked up with Captain Jason and had an awesome day on the water battling big snooks at different spots throughout the bay. Everything was taken care of and all we had to do was step on the boat and pull in the big ones! I will be using Captain Jason again in the future and will be recommending iTrekkers to anyone looking to book a charter in the area!”
Went out with Captain Jason and had the best time. Took us to a few spots and we all pulling in fish. The captain was super nice, professional and created a great experience, especially for my youngest as it was his first fishing trip. Definitely worth booking with and looking to do another trip with my family again.”
“Had a great trip with iTrekkers – planning another trip later this month and using them again. I’ve chartered boats in the past before with other companies, but it was always hit or miss on what type of experience you’d get. Love that iTrekkers takes that element of risk out of the equation. We had a great time of the trip and more importantly caught a ton of fish that we were able to take home and eat later that day. Will definitely do business again with these guys.”
“So much fun! I couldn’t believe how many fish we caught! Every time we put our poles in the water…we had a bite! Jason knew the best places to fish. Cannot say enough about our fishing trip and our guide…We had the best day fishing in Tampa! I have to entertain a lot of clients for work…I think I just found a new way to do that instead of having dinner all the time! It was really nice not having to worry about anything. iTrekkers took care of it all! Great Time!”
“I booked a fishing charter through itrekkers.com. The booking process was easy, simple and a representative was there to assist me the whole time. I had an amazing experience the guide was professional and interacted with our group sharing his expertise and putting us on fish nonstop all morning! I felt comfortable booking through iTrekkers they guaranteed me quality and the experience was beyond my expectations. I highly recommend their service to anyone regardless of age or skill, iTrekkers for the win!”
“Amazing time with the iTrekkers crew – we were about an hour late and they still accommodated us with no problems at all! I worked with Tom Mulliez and he provided me with prompt communication as well as setting everything up for me so the process was seamless. I’d recommend them to anyone looking to fish!”
“What a GREAT time. I’ve been on a number of fishing trips but this one tops the list. Captin Kyle and Alex were awesome and they somehow convinced a 40″ snook to take my bait! I highly recommend iTrekkers and can’t wait for the next trip out!”
iTrekkers was fantastic, the captain was super professional, got on the fish quick and stayed on the fish with every catch he baited my hook, a great day, bringin my family next time!”
“Had an amazing morning out with Captain Bobby. Caught nearly 35 snook, between us, in a couple of hours. Caught the second largest snook of my life on a scaled sardine using one of Captain Bobby’s “techniques”.”
“I’ve always loved fishing in the Tampa area, but this is the first time I decided to go with a charter service. What a great decision! When we arrived, the captain and boat were loaded and ready- all equipment, bait and even a cooler of water were all waiting for us. We did a 4 hours inshore trip from the Courtney Campbell Causeway and had baited poled in our hands within minutes of leaving the dock and finding our first stop. What was great was that you could do everything yourself, or the captain was ready and willing to help with anything you needed.
Everyone in our party had done some fishing before, but most were far from experienced; however within the first couple casts, we were all getting fish-on and reeling in snook, redfish, trout and others from a few different spots that only an experienced captain would know to find. We were even able to easily measure and keep a couple trout and redfish to take home and cook up. Even along the way we saw dolphins and manatees.
I would definitely choose a professional charter again. The quality of the bait and fishing spots alone made the experience great. Without having to fuss and worry about those things, we were constantly catching fish for a majority of the 4 hours we were out there. Our captain even filleted our keepers and had ziploc bags for us to help transport without a mess. Big thank you to iTrekkers and their captain for showing us a great time!”
This was a day I will never forget. 50 miles out in the gulf with Captain Kyle – we caught snapper, grouper, mahi, amberjack and even a couple of sharks. Boat was perfect, service was great, crew were easy to get along with and knew their stuff. Seriously this was awesome. I fully recommend iTrekkers.”
“Went out on a Sandbar Fun Day with iTREKKERS in February and it was awesome! Spent most of our time on the shore and in the shallows, we had the option of paddle boarding, and the captain had coolers, ice, and a tent for us to sit under on the beach. Can’t wait to try a kayak fishing trek!”
“Great experience and a great time. We went out with Capt. Adam, very knowledgeable of the local area and the species we were fishing. We went inshore fishing for half our trip and offshore for the other half, loved every moment of it. When we were fishing talking to the Captain and his deck hand feels like hanging out with friends; but when the fish are on it is all business. His boat is clean and spacious with a nice cabin to retreat to if you need a break. Me and my girlfriend had a great experience through and through. Will be going back 100%.”
“My parents and I went on a kayaking tour of Weedon Island Preserve and had a fantastic experience with our master tour guide Matt. He had the kayaks all setup early with our own individual coolers filled with ice ready to go before our scheduled tour time. He even called a day prior to our trip to get more information on how he could be the most accommodating possible. Our entire time together as a group was uninterrupted fun. The experience in general went flawlessly and I will certainly recommend to my fiends and family. Looking forward to having Matt take us on a kayak fishing trip the next time, THANK YOU for an effortless great time!”
“I was trying to come up with a rewarding appreciation event for my maintenance staff who work hard every day for me. I knew they liked to fish but none of them had the means to go out and just do it. My maintenance staff were in for a real treat when I booked a fishing trip for them with iTrekkers. Here’s what they had to say:
“We cannot say enough how great the entire trip was. The boat was clean and comfortable, making it an awesome fishing experience. If the fish weren’t biting, the captain moved us immediately to an area where they were. The captain was awesome in that he made sure everyone caught fish. He was knowledgeable and very helpful. If one of our lines were tangled he’d untangle it in a snap. He had a great sense of humor too, never laughed so hard. It was a worry free fishing trip as well as a great bonding experience with the team. Loved it!”
My maintenance staff had a total blast. They still talk about it. As for me, well it was so easy. I booked online and the staff at iTrekkers communicated with me immediately to take care of all the minor details. . I know they will be back again.”
“What a great adventure. Really enjoyed the relaxing time on the water. We saw a few manatee and had a lot of fun paddling through the reserve. The guides were super nice and friendly. Professional and happy dudes.”
“CATCH FISH AND HAVE FUN WITH ITREKKERS!!
I highly recommend the paddle boarding fishing trip to all anglers at any level! I am by no means a pro at fishing but our guide Matt was extremely attentive with explaining how the gear works and ensuring each member of the group felt comfortable on the board. We were all able to catch a few fish and even keep some that were of the legal size, which was great eating. I can’t wait to go again!”
“We booked no hassle camping and a charter fishing trip with iTrekkers for a bachelor’s weekend in late February ’17. The entire trip that was perfectly handled by the iTrekkers office staff, camping guide and charter fishing captain.
When we arrived on Friday the campsite was ready for us and the fire was going. Our camping guide, Tucker, met us and gave us a tour of the site. He spent the weekend close by and helped us in anyway we needed throughout the weekend.
We booked a fishing charter out of Saint Petersburg on Saturday though iTrekkers as well. They booked a trip with a local fishing captain, Harrison Hodges. The trip was the most fun it could have been. We caught enough Sheepshead and Snapper to feed a small village. On Sunday, we left and Tucker took care of cleaning up the area.
All 5 of the guys on this trip agree that we cannot recommend iTrekkers and captain Harrison enough. It was by bar the best weekend of camping and fishing we have ever had. We will be back!”
“Great experience!!! If you are in the Tampa area and want to fish this a great company. Ask for Jeremy he was the best!!”
“We had a blast with iTrekkers. The guides and Weedon Preserve were great. We ever got to frolic with some manatees.”
“I have just returned from an awesome morning of fishing with Capt Bill Miller and Mate Jason. 4 hours of non stop catching from first to last cast. Great, good natured and extremely knowledgeable team. I took my Son and Nephew who were visiting from the U.K. We made some lifetime memories which we will cherish forever. Spanish mackerel, speckled trout, silver trout, grouper, mangrove snapper, yellow tail jack, bonnet head shark, sand shark, black tip shark, ladyfish and the obligatory catfish. A morning of smiles and enough fresh fillets to feed an army. We booked our charter using iTrekkers. Whilst I had some operator trouble using the online method. Karla followed up by phone, unprompted within 24 hours. Her customer service was exemplary and we booked over the phone. Follow up emails from iTrekkers and from Capt Billy confirmed our booking and gave comprehensive details of boat location. We strongly recommend using iTrekkers for your fishing charters. Thanks guys”
“Had such a great day with Mathew we booked the following day also. 2 different places that were a lot of fun with plenty of action. Learned a lot about kayak fishing and will surely be back for more. Everything we needed was provided. All we had to do was show up and fish.”
“iTrekers made it very easy for me to book a last minute quality trip with a great captain. We had a great trip with Captain John Griffith. He really knows this area, how to catch fish and take care of all your needs. The conditions were not ideal, mother nature, but Captain John kept a close eye on the weather and got us back to the dock minutes before the rain came with fish that he clean for us in the rain.
I will call iTrackers again, hopefully soon.”
“Went scalloping for the first time and had an amazing time. The guide was knowledgeable and kept a vigilant eye for the safety of his passengers. I would definitely do it again.”
“Had a great time fishing Tampa Bay with iTrekkers! Would definitely recommend for a fun weekend adventure.”
“Had a spectacular day out Scalloping in Homosassa, dinner was great, captains were awesome, an experience I’ll never forget.”
“iTrekkers is AWESOME! What an adventure and experience! Thank you to Captain Jason for the BEST TIME! I have never been on a fishing excursion. The last time I went fishing was decades ago as a kid. Had family visiting from out of the country who wanted a real Florida fishing experience and iTrekkers delivered and then some! Captain Jason was so attentive, patient, knowledgeable and most of all FUN! He rolled with our crew on the boat like a champion host and provided everything we needed to make this the BEST family memory. Captain Jason knows fishing and he knows how to make customers happy! Felt bad leaving the boat because it was just such a great day on the water! We caught a lot of fish too! So much we had to give it away to friends and other family! Shout out also to Carla at iTrekkers who booked all of this at the last minute with class and attention. She knew I needed a boat, poles and an experience for visiting family quickly and she made it happen! We will do this again. iTrekkers ROCKS!”
“Best way we could have capped off our trip to Tampa! We got to pet manatees and the guides were a lot of fun”
“Had a great Father/Son day on the water with Mathew as our guide. We had an amazing trip, we fished the waters around Sunset Beach in Tarpon Springs. Mathew was very professional and had everything ready for us to go when we got there.”
“This review is overdue. Last month my brother and I took a trip with Captain Jeremy and had an amazing time. The weather was windy and a bit in the chilly side and when we spotted him in the boat heading our way he was battling swells in the bay and completely soaked. We hopped on and he took us into some of the coves to keep out of the elements. We caught fish all morning and afterward took our catch to a local shop for lunch. I still reach out to CPT Jeremy for fishing advice.”
“iTrekkers set us up with an awesome charter! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We had a great day on the water and this trip has really inspired me to begin fishing again. I will definitely be using iTrekkers to book my charters from now on. Thanks guys!!”
“I love iTrekkers! The website has hundreds of fishing charters to choose from so there is something for everyone. More importantly, I love how iTrekkers is changing how people think about the outdoors. Their mission is to Unleash The Outdoors, by making outdoor adventures easy to discover and book online.”
“Awesome experience with iTrekkers – as someone that loves fishing, but doesn’t have a boat or know who the most reputable guides are, I love the service they provide. They truly take the risk and mystery out of booking a charter – you know you will get only the best guides. I’ll do business again with these guys for sure.”
“We caught 30 fish, at least. Capt jason hooked us up. We swam. Capt jason filleted our fish and Ray’s Fish Camp cooked them fir lunch! Try the slaw, key lime pie and crab cakes”
“I had so much fun Paddle fishing with iTrekkers on Saturday morning! Our guide Matt was the best! We paddled out to all these great fishing spots near Sunset Beach in Tarpon Springs and caught a bunch of fish! Pinfish, redfish, sheep head and black drum! It was a lot easier then I thought it was going to be. The paddle board comes with a chair and a cooler strapped to the back so it was easy and steady. Matt knew where all the fish would be bitting, which made fishing exciting! I’ve never been paddle fishing before and it was so much fun! I’ve already booked my next trip with iTrekkers! Great way to spend the morning with friends! Ask for Matt when you sign up – he is a riot! Every adventure I’ve been on with iTrekkers has been the best! Easy to navigate website, plenty of guides to work around my schedule and I’ve never been disappointed!”
