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

Captain Rios encouraged me to turn my husband's birthday fishing trip into a family trip and bring along our 4 year old daughter. We are so happy he did! We had an amazing time. Captain Rios went out of his way to make the trip enjoyable and memorable for all of us. The fishing was great and ended the day... More

Booked a trip for myself and my two children for a easy day of fishing. Started the day with a strong trout bite. Once the tide changed he put us on some sharks. Capt was very good with the kids, kept them entertained the entire time. Son won't stop talking about the sharks and my daughter loved riding in the... More

I love fishing. I have tried and tried on numerous occasions to find a good fishing hole. I have fished the Tampa Bay area for years and have been unsuccessful. In an attempt to learn the grounds I contacted Captain Rios of Spanish Sardines. We docked around 7 am and by 7:45 we were loaded with fresh bait. The green... More

You will definitely catch some fish on this trip! This captain is great for a family fishing outing. The day we went out, it was sharks that were biting, which he told me before we booked. He checked the tides the night before to make sure we were going at the right time of day to catch fish. He had... More
