We had a great day with Captain Raphael Rios and his first mate Gavin aboard the Spanish Sardine. Our boys, ages 11 and 10, loved the personal attention and the effort that went in to our day. It is obvious that Raphael has a passion for his work, while his good humor helped us relax and have fun as a... More

The Spanish Sardine is by far the best fishing charter in the Tampa Bay area!! We went on a near shore charter and the first place we anchored up, Captain Rafael showed us how to bait the hook and dropped it down. As soon as he dropped the bait down we had a fish on the hook. The whole day... More

I have never been offshore fishing. This was the best experience. We caught a lot of fish! Everything from hogfish to grouper to barracuda. Captain Rafael was awesome and he made sure we had a great time. This was my second trip on the Spanish sardine. My first trip was an inshore adventure about 3 months ago which was just... More

I learned of Spanish Sardine Charters through Trip Advisor and was very pleased. We wanted a personable, 1:1 experience that would be different from the less expensive "mass charters" that are widely available in the St. Pete's area. I was able to call on Sunday and reserve a near-shore charter for the following week. Captain Raphael Rios runs his business... More

Capt.Rafael Rios is a great skipper with focus on his guests the entire trip. It was a cold morning. We're from Colorado so that didn't bother us. We went to one of his favorite spots & caught plenty of fish for the half day charter. We didn't have kids with us this time, but they would have loved it. If... More

Amazing fishing experience! From the beginning to the end, the music, the locations, views, dolphins and of course the excellent fishing experience. Capt. Rios took my family and I to three different locations or “fishing holes” as he says were we caught many different fish, from Snappers to Groupers, Robalo, and Silver trout. Then he took us to catch Sharks!... More
