Nothing beats a day of fishing. But what about a half-day? Or a quick, four-hour excursion?
Fishing doesn’t have to be an all-day commitment. Whether you’ve already got a jam-packed vacation schedule or you’re a local with a half-day off work, AMI Excursions can pack a full day of fishing excitement into our four-hour fishing trips.
Can you really catch fish in four hours?
Of course you can! Anyone with a passion for fishing knows you will steal every possible moment to put a hook in the water. Fifteen minutes is plenty of time to take a few casts. And if you’re in the right area, four hours and a good boat can make a lifetime’s worth of fishing memories.
Anna Maria Island is the right area for quick fishing. All around our seven-mile island are varied habitats rich with fish. Take a lap around AMI and you’ll encounter sandy beaches, canals, Gulf shipwrecks, glass flats, mangroves, brackish inlets, and a deep pass.
No matter the season, the weather, or the time of day, you don’t have to travel far to catch fish in and around Anna Maria. That means less time traveling and more time fishing.
Who needs a four-hour AMI fishing trip?
We make our four-hour trips work for every kind of angler—from families full of beginners who need a guide to experienced experts who just need a getaway.
These quick excursions are for fitting in a day of fishing when you don’t have a full day on the schedule. So it’s all about what you always want from fishing, whether it’s loads of bites and action or just a peaceful outing with a rod in your hand, right in the middle of the day.
Another reason our four-hour trips work for everyone is that AMI is already in the middle of the action. Whether you’re vacationing in southwest Florida or you live here year-round, you don’t have a long drive to get to the boat, and we won’t have a long boat ride to get to the fish.
We’ve got great fishing right here, and we’ve also got lots of other great stuff to do before and after you’re finished fishing. So since AMI is jam-packed with great dining and recreation, you can hop off Capt. Nate’s boat and find plenty of things to do, right here, for the rest of the day.
Why do you need a local AMI captain makes a four-hour trip worth it?
Of course, if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can hardly get the boat in the water in four hours—much less catch a fish.
In order for a short cruise to work—and to be fun!—you need a captain who knows boating and fishing as well as he knows the local waters. That’s why we know we can get you your money’s worth on a four-hour fishing trip: because Capt. Nate knows what he’s doing.
So don’t rule out a fishing charter just because you don’t have a full day to commit to it. AMI Excursions can take you to the fish and still get you back in time for dinner.
