Reel Time Outfitters

Capt. Leon Hampton Crystal River, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Reel Time Outfitters offers fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. We do inshore fishing. The species we catch are redfish to trout even sharks. You’re always in for a fight when you hook a fish.

Captain Leon Hampton is owner and operator of Reel Time Outfitters. He’s been a professional fishing guide since 2014 after spending years on the water developing a passion for all things outdoors. If you can’t find him fishing, he’s usually in the woods hunting. His main goal is to introduce people to the wonders of the outdoors and share his knowledge. Two things make this goal even more special: children and Veterans. Captain Leon is a firm believer of introducing children to the outdoors and showing them what nature has to offer; he also feels Veterans of very deserving of receiving back to them what they have given for our country.

Reel Time Outfitters offers a variety of trips for your group of four. We have an excellent Eco-Tour that introduces you to the beautiful wildlife around Crystal River. This is a three-hour trip and you’ll see all sorts of animals: dolphins, manatees, turtles, and a variety of wild birds. Inshore fishing trips are also available for half day (4 hours) or full day (8 hours). You can bring your own rod/reel or Captain Leon can provide one for you. He will also supply bait (live & artificial) and a cooler with ice. Your fishing license is also included in the cost of the trip.

If you’re looking for a scalloping trip, these are quite popular in Crystal River. We have snorkeling gear and everything you’ll need for collecting scallops. Scallop season runs from July to September – no fishing license is required. If you have a group of more than six people we will coordinate with multiple groups to accommodate your group.

Captain Leon and Reel Time Outfitters is looking forward to introducing you to the true Florida wildlife! There’s nothing quite like the Crystal River area, and Captain Leon knows all the great places to explore. This is a great family vacation option for your group, and we look forward to seeing you on the water! Book today.
