My girlfriend and I decided to go on a charter boat for the day.
The charter boat captain took us all over Hillsborough Bay and Tampa Bay. We didn’t head out to the gulf, but we went all the way to the interstate 275 in the Tampa Bay. We saw a lot of different marine animals while we were on the water including dolphins and sharks. The boat was bigger than I anticipated. There were plenty of places for my girlfriend and I to stand on the deck and there was also a small space inside the boats with a snack bar, drinks, a bathroom, and climate control. My girlfriend and I spent most of our time outside on the boat, but it was a very warm and humid Tampa day. On our way back to the beach, both of us indoors by the air conditioner. After spending four hours on the water in the sun, both of us were ready to relax in the cool air. We certainly felt refreshed by the time we came back to the dock. I managed to catch a couple of red snappers when we were out in the bag and I took them to a restaurant that will clean and cook your fresh catch. The place was reasonably priced and the red snapper was absolutely delicious. I could tell that it was fresh instead of frozen. The flavor of the fish was clean and not salty at all. The entire day turned out really nice, despite the heat and humidity. It was a long day, but it was absolutely filled with lots of fun and excitement.
