Adventure Charters

Capt. Jim Klopfer Sarasota, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Adventure Charters is a fishing charter business in Sarasota, Florida.  We cater to anglers of all ages and experience levels.  Families with children are welcome!

Owned and operated by Captain Jim Klopfer, Adventure Charters is your full-service charter service! Customers come back again and again to experience the great Gulf of Mexico fishing action or calm waters of the Sarasota Bay.

Sarasota Bay is a hidden gem located between Tampa Bay and Charlotte Harbor. This bay is an estuary with freshwater mixing with saltwater, with shallow waters and many acres of lush grass flats that attract gamefish.

If you’re an experienced angler, experience the challenge of hooking a Snook in pristine Sarasota River. New anglers will enjoy the inshore, nearshore, and reef of the Florida coastline. No matter your skill level, Captain Jim will assist in getting you on the fish.

Speaking of fish, get your rods ready to reel in Snook, Bluefish, Bonito, Sheepshead, Spotted Seatrout, Spanish Mackerel, just to name a few. We are happy to guide you with correct technique – whether it’s bottom fishing or fly fishing or anything in between! Catch-and-release is encouraged; any fish harvested will be cleaned and bag for your convenience. 

Captain Jim is at the helm of a 2016 22’ Stott Craft bay boat. The vessel is roomy, comfortable, and safe for your group of four passengers. Adventure Charters provides all tackle, bait, fishing licenses, and cooler with ice. You will only need to bring your hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and any food/drinks for the day. 

Adventure Charters fishes every day of the year. Captain Jim is very well-rounded and adapts to the desires and skill level of each customer. If you have a particular trip or fish in mind, please let him know. Book your next Sarasota fishing trip with Adventure Charters today!
