Trek Description

If you're looking for something a little different for your next outdoor activity, Stand Up Paddle Board fishing is a great way to explore nature in Tampa Bay. Spending time out on the bay with just you, your SUP, and the guide who can show you where the fish are biting is a guaranteed way to have a great time in Florida.

Guides will clean and fillet any fish you catch, so you can take them home for a fantastic, fresh dinner! Stand up paddle fishing in Tampa Bay can yield fish like black drum, jack, mangrove snapper, mackerel, trout and more.

Of course, fish are not the only wildlife you will encounter on the hunt. Tampa Bay is not only great for fishing, but the large estuary is home to plenty of other sea life, such as manatees, dolphins, turtles, and rays. Enjoy the freedom of gliding over even the shallowest areas of the Florida flats. Guided paddle fishing is like nothing you’ve ever experienced on a “typical” boat fishing charter.

Your guide will always have an adventure planned and is there to assist with every aspect of your Stand Up Paddle fishing trip. Guides will also take the time to teach any of those that want to learn the basics of fishing or paddle sports. Best of all, your gear and good times are all included, from your stand up paddle board and paddle to a cooler full of ice, dry storage, and a chair that can be used during your tour.

SUP fishing is a unique, fun way to explore Tampa Bay in the sunshine, with some of the best local fishing guides around!

Interested in a kayak for one or more members of your party? Just let your guide know - we’re happy to customize your trip experience!

Luana R.

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!

Chris S. from Tampa, FL

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.

Alan C.

Had such a great day with iTREKKERS! 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.

Danny M.

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!

Stefanie B.

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 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!

Theresa D.

iTREKKERS took us out on the kayaks in the backwater. We caught a bunch of fish!!! Reds, trout, ladies, sheepshead... I even saw a huge flounder!! He was just floundering around!!

I get sea sick pretty easy - will this one make me sea sick?
If you're prone to sea sickness, we'd recommend an inshore fishing trip. The distance is less than 2 miles from shore, greatly limiting the risk for sea sickness. You'll be good to go! iTREKKERS By Ben B. on July 17
Just looking to see what adventures might be nice for my husband to do on Fathers' Day
Awesome! We love taking fathers out for their big day. We'd recommend Inshore Fishing, or Deep Sea Fishing. Inshore if it's his first time, or deep sea if he's an experienced angler! iTREKKERS By Ben B. on July 17
How much do you charge for cleaning the fish or do I have to?
That is all included! When that happens, most customers will tip the guide, but it is not mandatory. iTREKKERS By Peter P. on June 29
